The Best Listing of the Year (For Mere Mortals)
939 T Street NW
UrbanTurf featured hundreds of homes for sale this year and combed through many thousands more, so picking out the top listing of 2012 (for the mere mortal) was no easy feat. After much deliberation, we decided on a home featured as a Deal of the Week in April. At $499,555 for a three-bedroom home in the U Street Corridor, it was at least originally in a very suitable price point for most buyers, and the first open house attracted a whopping 130 people.
The price was unusual for a home that was in such a hip area and in perfectly livable condition. The living area on the main level consists of two rooms with tall bay windows, upstairs are three bedrooms and a bathroom, the kitchen is on the lower level, and out back is a garden/patio area.
The crowds and price attracted a number of offers, and the corner row house ultimately sold for well above its asking price, going under contract seven days after it was listed.
