Owned For 60 Years, Sold in Two Days

Owned For 60 Years, Sold in Two Days: Figure 1

As an indication of how quickly homes on the market are getting snapped up in DC these days, check out this ivy-covered townhouse in Georgetown.

The two-bedroom listing hit the market on Saturday with only an exterior photo; by Monday morning, it had found a buyer. The home, which had been in the same family for 60 years, sits on Poplar Street not far from Dumbarton Oaks.

The asking price of $495,000 and quiet location (map) appears to have appealed to a buyer undeterred by a phrase that, in a different market, would have stopped house hunters in their tracks: “perfect DIY project.”

    It's a little misleading to say it was "sold" - as it was only under contract and now it's not. Places rarely sell in 2 days unless someone comes with a briefcase full of cash.
