In Above Asking, we sift through real estate records and highlight homes that recently sold for above their asking prices.
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.
- Address: 401 R Street NW (map)
- Asking Price: $529,900
- Sale Price: $706,200
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: 1.5
- Year Built: 1900
- Days on Market: 7
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
- Days on Market: 7
