Real Estate Watch – Brookland Recent Home Sales: $534,000 (6 BR, 3.5 BA) And $525,000 (3 BR, 2.5 BA)

You may remember our post when the home above at 1251 Hamlin St. NE hit the market – remember the awesome Christmas Story lamp? Anyway, the home sold for $525,000 on Wednesday. The virtual tour is still open here.

Meanwhile, this home at 1805 Monroe Street NE sold for $534,000 on Tuesday. This federal style home was a steal, in my humble opinion, being such a huge property and home, and lots of original details.

Real Estate Watch – Renovated Brookland Home Sells for $600,000 (4 Bed, 4.5 Bath)

Some lucky new neighbor will be cooking Thanksgiving dinner here!

Well, that didn’t take long! We posted about this renovated home at 1003 Evarts St. hitting the market less than a month ago and it sold yesterday for $600,000. If you ask me, a  fantastic bargain considering all that you get with the home, the prices across the city, and considering the home is a stones throw from the RIA Metro and the best pizza in DC.

Real Estate Watch – 6,954 Sq. Ft. Residential Open Lot Purchased For $197,340

Real Estate Brookland NE Washington DC

After a long stint on the market, the open lot at 3712 13th St NE recently sold for $197,340. I know this lot pretty well, good friends of mine live a few doors down.  One of the nice perks of this property is that it is directly across from the lovely Fort Bunker Hill Park. It is a pretty narrow, but quite deep property. I am really curious to see what will be built here. I’ll keep my eye on it. The seller’s realtors included this concept drawing.

Real Estate Watch – Brookland Home (3 Bed, 3 Bath) Sold For $500,000

This Brookland home sold yesterday for $500,000. But what is the real story here? On June 26th it was listed for $600,000, but clearly the market wasn’t ready for that, and it sat. On July 23rd the prBrookland Housing Market Heating Upice dropped to $525,000 and two days later it was under contract. Yesterday it finally came across as sold at $500,000.  After looking through the photos of the home, it confirmed what I have been thinking for the past few months; the Brookland market is hot, but still, homes in the $600,000 – $700,000 range better be spectacular. Don’t get me wrong – this is a great house. It has obviously been well cared for, has really nice outdoor spaces, and a garage!  The problem is that it was built in 1980 and it looks like it hasn’t been updated since. With so much “home flipping” and new developments popping up, it would be hard to compete with brand new fixtures, and sparkling granite countertops.
