In Under Contract this week, UrbanTurf looks back at properties it has featured over the past couple weeks that were snatched up by DC’s alert buyers in just a matter of days. The listings below are either under contract or the listing status has changed to sales pending.

Under Contract: Three Days or Less: Figure 1

A T Street Bidding War?

This three-bedroom was featured as our last installment of Deal of the Week, and within 48 hours of being listed, the home had found a buyer. A few renovations were done to the row house on T Street between 14th and 15th about two years ago, but a lack of photos was an indication that the “as-is” description should be heeded. Still, with three bedrooms, a den, a basement, front yard, and parking in the rear, it has the size and amenities to probably make it worth whatever sweat equity the buyer puts in.

  • Address: 1464 T Street NW (map)
  • Price: $659,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Year Built: 1872
  • Days on Market: 2

Renovated Four-Bedroom Row House in Pleasant Plains

Located in Pleasant Plains a block from the McMillan Reservoir, this four-bedroom row house was featured in What $500,000 Buys You last week. The home’s improvements came in 2008, and it now has hardwood floors and an updated kitchen, bathrooms and backyard. Some of the bedrooms are pretty small, but there are a number of cool extra spaces in the house, like an office area between the dining room and kitchen, and an in-law suite downstairs with a full kitchen. It lasted on the market for just about three days.

  • Address: 521 Harvard Street NW (map)
  • Price: $499,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1913
  • Days on Market: 3

Capitol Hill Row House with an Antique Meat Locker

A hundred years ago, the first floor of this Capitol Hill three-bedroom was Johnston’s Market (Johnston and his nine children lived upstairs). The downstairs still has some vestiges of its former life, like a meat locker in the living room and a wall of windows all along the north side. In the 70’s, a total renovation turned the meat locker into a wet bar (while keeping the meat hooks and old compressor) and added a skylight for even more brightness. Featured in Best New Listings a few weeks ago, it found a buyer almost before we published the article.

  • Address: 252 10th Street NE (map)
  • Price: $750,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 1.5
  • Year Built: 1885
  • Days on Market: 2
