Under Contract: Gone in Two Days: Figure 1

Condo in South Adams Morgan, or “SoMo”

As we suspected when we featured this south Adams Morgan condo last week, the neighborhood is much more popular than its dubious new nickname (SoMo). The two-bedroom that UrbanTurf covered in What $540,000 Buys You last week went under contract in just two days. The renovated unit is steps from the UrbanTurf headquarters at 18th and S Street, so perhaps we’ll be seeing the new owners around.

  • Address: 1621 T Street NW, #501 (map)
  • Price: $539,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 879
  • Days on Market: 2

Wide Rowhouse in Lanier Heights With a Posh Amenity

Buyers are very quick to the draw these days: this Lanier Heights rowhouse that we wrote about on Friday also found a buyer in just two days. The higher-end home was renovated in a luxurious style, with fancy kitchen appliances, Brazilian hardwood floors and an amenity that made it stand out from its neighbors: a 150-bottle wine cooler on the lower level.

  • Address: 2918 18th Street NW (map)
  • Price: $900,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Year Built: 1925
  • Days on Market: 2

End Unit Just South of Tenley Circle

This Tenleytown home held on just a bit longer than the previous listings; it took five days to find a buyer, an extremely fast time to find a buyer…in any other market. The two-bedroom is nicely renovated and located on the end of a row, making it brighter than the other rowhouses on the block. Features like a sunroom, a carpeted basement office and a fenced-in backyard with stepped garden will surely be enjoyed by the new owners.

  • Address: 4224 40th Street NW (map)
  • Price: $725,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1939
  • Days on Market: 5
