In Under Contract this week, UrbanTurf looks back at properties it has featured over the past couple weeks that were snatched up by DC’s alert buyers in just a matter of days. The listings below are either under contract or the listing status has changed to sales pending.

Under Contract: Eight Days or Less: Figure 1

A Golden Columbia Heights Condo

This one-bedroom was featured as one of our Best New Listings just last Friday; by Monday, it had found a buyer. Though the listing only has 600 square feet, an extra sitting room or office area off of the living room adds a lot of livability, and we liked the choice of golden yellow paint in the living room. The new owners will also enjoy a location on the south side of Columbia Heights, close to the U Street Corridor.

  • Address: 2535 13th Street NW, #204 (map)
  • Price: $349,000
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 600
  • Days on Market: 5

One-Bedroom Condo One Block From Dupont Circle

Featured in a recent installment of What $400,000 Buys You, this one-bedroom condo in Dupont Circle’s Imperial House took about one week to find a buyer. The hotel-esque vibe, with soothing neutrals, recessed lighting and Marriott-worthy windows, and a location a block from the Circle caught someone’s eye relatively quickly. A previous renovation brought in luxury features to the kitchen, bathroom, flooring and closet system.

  • Address: 1601 18th Street NW, #403 (map)
  • Price: $399,900
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 658
  • Days on Market: 8

Charmingly Renovated Brookland Three-Bedroom

Though we featured this Brookland three-bedroom two weeks ago as one of our Best New Listings, the family-sized home was under contract only three days after hitting the market. We liked the classically homey facade and charmingly renovated interior, but were most struck by the kitchen, with its industrial light fixtures, white cabinets and black stone countertops. The layout includes some surprises, like a skinny sitting room attached to the second bedroom, a narrow room that could be used as an office or nursery, and a walk-in closet with enough space for a vanity.

  • Full listing: 1251 Hamlin Street NE (map)
  • Price: $525,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1905
  • Days on Market: 3
