Instead of What X Buys You this week, UrbanTurf is doing something a little different: we found three properties, with prices ranging from $299,000 to $750,000, that need a bit of fixing up.
Park View Rowhouse Estate Sale
As is the case with many fixer-uppers, this Park View option doesn’t have any interior photos, but the low price and “as-is” stipulation suggest that there is plenty of work to be done to make the house comfortable. Adding to that, the listing description says that the home needs a complete update and renovation. Offers for the single-family three-bedroom are due by the end of the day.
- Full Listing: 3206 Park Place NW (map)
- Price: $299,000
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: One
- Year Built: 1916
- Listing Agent: John Eric, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty
A Two-Flat Property Across From Gallaudet
This listing, across from the main Gallaudet campus, has two qualities that are tempting to a certain group of buyers: a rental unit and an opportunity for renovation. The home is set up as a two-flat, with one unit on the ground floor and another on the top, and both are in livable condition, but could use some updating down the road. Like the property above, offers are due by close of business Wednesday.
- Full Listing: 642 Morton Place NE (map)
- Price: $459,000
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: Two
- Year Built: 1910
- Listing Agent: Lahaja Furaha, Keller Willams Capital Properties
Dupont Circle Rowhouse in Need of TLC
While not many people think of Dupont Circle as a neighborhood packed with fixer uppers, this three-bedroom rowhouse may fit the bill. The estate sale lacks interior photos, and the listing states that the home is “in need of TLC.” The price is quite a bit higher than the two previous options, but it is on the low side given the neighborhood where it is located.
- Full Listing: 1749 Swann Street NW (map)
- Price: $750,000
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: 1.5
- Year Built: 1908
- Listing Agent: Frank Smith, Home Source Real Estate Solutions
