This installment of Under Contract takes a look back at three recently-featured listings, two that sold within a week and another that found a buyer after several price reductions.
Below Asking in Benning Ridge
This petite colonial cottage in Benning Ridge was recently renovated and is laid out efficiently, with an open area on the main floor alongside the living room, ending with a kitchen nook with breakfast bar. Two of the bedrooms share a bathroom on the upper level, while a third bed and bath are on the cellar level. The asking price was lowered several times before the house found a buyer at $379,900.

Bay Windows Abut Cozy Two-Bedroom Condo

The 804 square-foot unit takes up a floor in a federal rowhouse and contains multiple extra nooks for storage and seating, including two bay windows off the living room and bump-outs bookending the fireplace. A walk-in closet is across from the galley kitchen nestled into the hallway leading to the two side-by-side bedrooms, one of which also contains a bay window.

On the main level, a brightly-lit formal dining room has a small pass-through window to the kitchen, surrounded by cabinetry.
