Above Asking: $150,000 to $175,000 Over List: Figure 1

Rowhouse in Oft-Overlooked Truxton Circle

In June, we highlighted this property in our Multiple Bids feature. We figured that the bright rowhouse in Truxton Circle would attract quite a few interested buyers. Now that the sale has closed, we know that a bidding war ensued, and the final sale price is staggeringly higher than the original asking price. On July 12th, the home sold for just over $706,000, $176,300, above the asking price.

  • Sale Price: $706,200

Competing in Mount Pleasant

Another property featured in Multiple Bids was this four-bedroom rowhouse in Mount Pleasant that caught our eye because of its low price per square foot, in-law suite, and location. Mount Pleasant now has a reputation where homes sell for six figures above their asking price. Add this one to the list; the home sold for an even $1 million.

  • Address: 1718 Hobart Street NW (map)
  • Asking Price: $849,000
  • Sale Price: $1 million
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1927
