Thursday Hot Property List

1274 Simms Pl NE, Washington, DC 20002
List Price: $289,900
This is a 4 unit multi-family property in Trinidad.  The home was listed today and I expect it to get a lot of interest.  This property is a short sale so it could take some time. 

809 OTIS PL NW #102, WASHINGTON, DC 20010
List Price: $309,900
The prices at the Otis Flats are reasonable for its proximity to the Petworth metro.  Its hard to find anything under $350K that is decent in Columbia Heights these days.  Petworth is booming.  Jump on board! 

242 14TH ST SE, WASHINGTON, DC 20003
List Price: $325,000
The price will go up for this Capitol Hill shell close to the Potomac Ave metro station.  What an opportunity to fix and resell.  Homes that are fixed up are…

According to a recent study, it’s 31% less expensive to own a home rather than rent in the DC metro area.

The study examined identical homes for sale and rent to calculate average prices across the metro area. The study also took into account the costs associated with homeownership including closing costs, maintenance, insurance, taxes, and more. For rentals, the study included the cost of renter’s insurance and a security deposit.

The underlying assumptions that make it 31% cheaper to buy than rent in DC are the ability to get a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage at 4.8% with a 20% downpayment, deduction itemization on federal taxes, a 25% tax bracket (income between $72,500 and $146,400 for married joint filers), and plans to stay in the home for seven…

Here is this weeks list.  Inventory is still extremely low so it is slim picking out there in just about all price ranges. 



This is a giant home in Woodridge.  The property is a short sale so keep that in mind.  The homehas been on the market for 211 days.  The price started at $669,000 on this 4 bed/4 Bath single family with a .06 acre lot.  The home is listed at 3,200 sq ft.  That is a reasonable price for the square feet and who knows...maybe you can get that price down more. 



This is a 2 unit on Capitol Hill.  The value of owning real estate on Capitol Hill is only growing. The parking in the rear will hold over 4 cars.  Solid piece…

339 18TH ST NE, WASHINGTON, DC 20002

List Price: $390,000

You would need to get the price down on this one for it to make sense.  The listing agent told me that the seller has some flexibility in the price of this outer Capitol Hill home.  Buy and hold or buy and flip.  The property can be turned into a two unit.

petworth_real_estate_auction_3264A Petworth home was auctioned off today for $461,000.  If you add in the 6% charged by the auction company the grand total becomes $488,650.  The home at 514 Quincy St NW has 4 bedroom and 2.5 baths.  The total square feet on this Petworth home is 2,562 including the basement square footage.  The property is 2 blocks from the Petworth metro station on the green line.  An agent in our office that attended the auction estimated that over 200 buyers viewed the home on this rainy and dark Wednesday afternoon.  The home needs a full renovation and the sales price would only make sense for an end user. Considering the cost of renovations, the sales price was well beyond what would make sense for a flip.  The auction left many real estate investors who were…
