In Under Contract, UrbanTurf looks back at properties it has featured over the past couple weeks to see which were snatched up by DC’s alert buyers. The listings below are either under contract or the listing status has changed to sales pending.

Deal of the Week: Two-Bedroom Plus Loft in McLean Gardens

Under Contract: Off the Market in Four Days or Less: Figure 1

We hate to say we told you so, but when we featured this McLean Gardens two-bedroom plus loft unit earlier this week, we noted that a buyer would snatch it up within seven days. We did not, however, expect it to last just two days on the market. The unit measures out just shy of 1,300 square feet, and has a fairly spacious living area, a smallish kitchen and a loft large enough to serve as a third bedroom, family room or a home office area. Our prediction that the unit wouldn’t last long on the market was based on the fact that the last two comparable units to sell in the complex were under contract in less than a week and fetched somewhere between $15,000 and $20,000 above their asking price.

Two-Bedroom Condo Alternative Between Adams Morgan and Meridian Hill Park

Under Contract: Off the Market in Four Days or Less: Figure 2

In Best New Listings on Monday, we featured a two-bedroom listing on Ontario Street that we noted might be a good option for someone looking for a condo alternative. Someone agreed with us as there is a sale pending on the home after it sat on the market for just four days. The row house sits about equidistant from 18th Street in Adams Morgan and Meridian Hill Park on 16th Street and the first level has a small dining area, a step-down living room with a fireplace and French doors that lead out to a back garden. Unlike a lot of listings of this size in the city, both bedrooms in the home offer a fair amount of space.
