Price Cutter: Shaw Townhouse, U Street Condo and Arlington Colonial

by Shilpi Paul

In Price Cutter this week, UrbanTurf is highlighting recent price reductions on a number of properties that we have featured over the last couple months.

Two-Bedroom Shaw Townhouse With Potential for Third Bedroom

We featured this two-bedroom townhouse a block from the Shaw Metro in Best New Listings back in September. The price of the listing recently dropped by a little more than $15,000 and is now just below $500,000. When initially featured, UrbanTurf liked the potential for a third bedroom, which could also be used as an office or nursery, the very private garden and its proximity to Bloomingdale.

  • Full listing: 617 Rhode Island Ave. NW (map)
  • Original Price: $515,000
  • New Price: $499,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1880

Two-Bedroom Condo Not Far From Adams Morgan

UrbanTurf has been tracking this two-bedroom condo not far from Adams Morgan and Dupont Circle since it emerged on the market in July. We first highlighted it as a Best New Listing, and featured it again when the price was slashed by $10,000 in September. Now the price has dropped another $14,000. The dark bedrooms, square footage and the fact that the second bedroom is closed off by French doors from the living room may explain the lack of interest so far.

  • Full listing: 1752 U Street NW, #2 (map)
  • Original Price: $439,900
  • New Price: $415,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Year Built: 1910

Three-Bedroom Colonial in Arlington

This three-bedroom Arlington colonial was featured in Best New Listings early last month. We liked the family-friendly layout, which features a second floor with three-bedrooms, the finished basement, large deck and backyard. Located in the Dominion Hills section of Arlington off Route 66, the price on this home recently dropped by $10,000.

    The house in Shaw is cute but small and on a major thoroughfare. Urban Turf readers interested in a comparable house (that is near but not right on a busy road) at the same price but with 3 full BRs and 2.5 baths should check out the listing for the renovated property at 719 16th St NE which is right off H St corridor.

    I live very near the Shaw house and think it is great. The neighborhood is fantastic, and is centrally located. I believe the lack of interest could be from the major apartment construction a few doors down, using very large cranes overhead. If the sellers could wait for the major construction phase to end, I think they could get the asking price without lowering it.
