Tuesday’s Deal of the Week: Dupont Circle for Under $200K

by Mark Wellborn


Here is proof that you can live in Dupont Circle on the cheap. This week’s Deal of the Week is a junior one-bedroom unit (somewhere between a studio and a one-bedroom unit) two blocks south of the Circle for just $175,000. While the bedroom and living area are the same, there is a den with a small patio and a brand new kitchen and bathroom. The unit is obviously not for everyone, but the condo fees are just north of $100, and the monthly payments are only $900 if you can put down 20 percent. More photos and info below. For the full listing, click here.

    This does seem like an extremely good deal, considering that the rate to rent a ROOM in that area is about $900-1200/ month.

    Crazy. I think most people see that price attached to a unit in that neighborhood and expect a closet. This is nice space for the money.

    It’s a short sale.  Good luck with that.

  1. KstreetQB said at 1:52 pm on Tuesday October 13, 2009:

    Good deal at $175,000 but I’d be surprised if it sold for less than $215,000.

    What are the condo/maintenance fees?

  1. Maria said at 5:13 pm on Tuesday October 13, 2009:

    Monthly fees are $109/month.

  1. Tim said at 12:31 pm on Wednesday October 14, 2009:

    Bone is right, this looks like its a short sale. The sellers probably priced it unrealisitcally low just to “bait” a buyer so that they can continue on with the short sale process. The list price has absolutely no bearing on what price the bank will actually agree to for the sale, that is, if they agree to short sale at all…

  1. Dave said at 3:37 pm on Friday October 16, 2009:

    Real Property shows it sold for 195k almost 2 years ago, so probably won’t sell for more than that, and more likely closer to 175k.
