Under Contract: Six Days or Less: Figure 1

$156,000 Above Asking in Columbia Heights

Features as a Best New Listing a little over a week ago, this four-bedroom rowhouse stood out for its cozy, urban renovation: the wood trim around the windows and doorways has been painted a glossy black, there is a wall of exposed brick in the kitchen and adjacent sunroom, and many of the rooms are painted with bold colors. Overall, the home was solid and comfortable, and a second-story deck and one-bedroom in-law suite enhanced the listing’s appeal. The home found a buyer in just six days and we understand that it went under contract for close to $156,000 above the asking price.

The spacious home attracted attention immediately, and a buyer scooped it up in just four days.

1950s Rambler in Alexandria

After only two days on the market, this 1950s Alexandria rambler was snapped up by an alert buyer. The home has more of a contemporary feel on the inside than it does on the outside. It has beautiful dark hardwood floors on the main floor as well as a recently-updated kitchen. A finished basement features wood-paneled walls and built-in storage space. And a shed in the backyard provides additional storage.

  • Address: 4511 Kling Drive, Alexandria, VA (map)
  • Price: $485,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Year Built: 1957
