The latest edition of Above Asking revisits a pair of recently-featured listings in Alexandria that both recently sold for more than listing price.
$53,000 Above Asking in Del Ray
This two-bedroom bungalow, a block off Del Ray's main drag and abutting a park, went under contract in four days and ended up closing for $53,000 above asking price. Past its nearly-symmetrical façade, the living room has a skylit bonus nook on a raised platform. There is additional bonus space beneath the stairs on the adjacent wall, and the eat-in kitchen has access to the rear brick patio and a spacious yard with a detached shed. The laundry room has enough space, and a built-in ledge, to double as an office. There is another skylight at the top of the stairs, along with built-in shelving, and a family room/sitting room with french doors into the skylit owner's bedroom.

Six-Figure Premium for Two Units and an Entertaining Accesory
This corner-lot property a few blocks from the Braddock Road Metro was already under contract by the time UrbanTurf featured it, going for $135,000 above asking within two days. The house has open flow throughout, with a bedroom suite and rec room on the recently-renovated lower level and two bedrooms and a bath on the main level. The upstairs can also serve as a separate two-bedroom, one-bathroom rental unit. Outside, the garage was converted into an entertainment space, complete with Vermont-sourced post-and-beam interior, glass accordion doors, and an indoor/outdoor bar top courtesy of a hinged window. The adjacent patio area has a grill and built-in banquette seating around a fire pit.
