In this week’s Above Asking, UrbanTurf looks at a quick Mount Pleasant sale that went tens of thousands over list price, along with two other properties in Georgetown and Eckington.
More than $25K Over Asking After a Week on the Market in Eckington
This quirky, restored Victorian rowhouse in Eckington isn’t far from the NoMa Metro, but it feels worlds away from the towering new residential buildings that characterize that part of the neighborhood. The property went under contract a week of being listed and sold for $26,000 over its asking price. In addition to the location, buyers were likely drawn to the home’s good-sized living room, separate dining room, large master bedroom and yard.

Just Two Days on the Market in Mount Pleasant
This 1910 home is a stone’s throw from the National Zoo and boasts a staggering seven bedrooms — five on the upper levels and two downstairs. It found a buyer in just 48 hours, perhaps thanks to its size, and careful restoration and renovation, and ultimately sold for $50,000 above the asking price. In addition to the charm of the interior, the home also has plenty of outdoor space: There’s a deck on each floor, with the one on the top level looking out to Virginia and the one on the lowest floor leading out onto a patio with immaculate landscaping and room for entertaining.

Over List After Three Days in Georgetown
It was a rare chance to buy real estate in Georgetown without paying the usual $1 million+ entrance fee, and perhaps as a result, this cozy one-bedroom in the neighborhood’s East Village went under contract in just three days. The home, across the street from Rose Park, went $6,000 over asking, too. The garden-level apartment has a small eat-in kitchen that looks onto the living room and a bedroom that gets good light from two windows.

- Sold Price: $405,000
