Above Asking: Two One-Bedrooms Gone Quickly

  • February 18th 2020

The latest installment of Above Asking revisits two recently-featured condos which both sold quickly for several thousand over listing price.

$5,500 Above Asking for 595 Square Feet

Five is the lucky number for this 595 square-foot one-bedroom that went under contract in five days and sold for $5,500 above listing price. The Columbia Heights condo has an efficient and visually interesting layout, with an angular living/dining room. A pass-through window creates access to the kitchen from the living room, opening above a breakfast bar. In addition to hosting the combination washer/dryer, the kitchen also has tiled floors and black granite countertops. There is an open closet nook around the corner from the kitchen, and on the opposite side of the living room, a short hall leads into the spacious bedroom with double exposure.

$15,000 Above Asking for a Rowhouse Unit

Over in Dupont Circle, a similarly-sized one-bedroom spent just three days on the market before selling for $15,000 above list price. The condo is on the lower level of a rowhouse, and a breezeway-style path leads to the front door, creating a patio area outside. The glass-paned front door, along with a pair of similarly-sized windows, provides natural light to the open concept living area. Along the far wall, the kitchen overlooks the living area with sleek cabinetry, a rectangular sink in the island, and a subway-tile backsplash. The bedroom also benefits from an oversized window, and conceals a closet with industrial-style shelving behind french doors. The bathroom has a frameless glass shower stall and a closet with a stacked washer/dryer. No word yet as to whether the buyer kept the furniture.
