Under Contract: Family Homes Flying Off the Market: Figure 1

A Del Ray Bungalow with a Big Yard

This three-bedroom home has plenty of character and a big, sunlit backyard, not to mention a location in charming Del Ray, so it’s no wonder it was snapped up in just five days. In exchange for the taste of suburban bliss, the buyer may need to finish off the basement and get used to ducking near the sloping walls upstairs.

  • Address: 2603 Terrett Avenue (map)
  • Price: $725,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 1.5
  • Square Footage: 1,316
  • Days on Market: 5
  • Listing Agent: Robyn Bomar, Weichert

A Mount Pleasant Rowhouse Sure To Go Above Asking

This home in Mount Pleasant’s hot housing market sold in just six days, and from what we hear, the three-bedroom rowhouse produced multiple offers and sold for well above asking price. The winner’s spoils include two back decks and updated everything, though the home is a little smaller inside than the pictures suggest.

  • Address: 1882 Monroe Street NW (map)
  • Price: $849,900
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Square Footage: 1,712
  • Days on Market: 6
  • Listing Agent: Matthew McHugh, Lindsay Reishman Real Estate

The Hill’s Most Colorful One-Bed

This crazy-colorful one-bedroom (and its equally-colorful owner) were recently subjects of This Week’s Find. The new owner will benefit from the sunny paint colors, as well as the renovations its previous owner completed to add lighting and a more open concept in the living and dining space. It was under contract in a week.

  • Address: 115 D Street Southeast (map)
  • Price: $365,000
  • HOA Fees: $211/month
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One

  • Listing Agent: Arynne Crane, DCRE Residential

A Compact But Styled Studio in Kalorama

In just 454 square feet, this studio manages to fit in everything a buyer would need. It sat a little longer on the market than the other listings featured here, but still sold in under a month. The buyer gets a redone kitchen, a built-in closet and open space that looks pretty livable to us.

  • Address: 2032 Belmont Road NW, #504 (map)
  • Price: $259,900
  • HOA Fees: $306/month
  • Bedrooms: None
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 454
  • Days on Market: 21
