Washington DC Real Estate: 716 5th Street ,NE

I was browsing the Real Estate listings on Craigslist when I found this listing. Click on the link. Notice the granite counters. Must have these days. The rowhouse is listedfor 975,000 dollars. It is located in a gentrifying neighborhood in DC. The rowhouse was bought by:

Mailing Address: 3810 MUNSON RD; FALLS CHURCH VA22041-1624
Sale Price: $550,000
Sale Date: 03/10/2005
Instrument No.: 33216

It was bought about 6 months ago and renovated. Even if 150K was put into renovating it, that still leaves a huge profit for Ricardo. So will it sell for this price in a reasonable amount of time? Probably not.


  1. Wow, that looks like at least 3LF of granite.

    (Sometimes I wonder if the housing bubble wasn't some kind of conspiracy cooked up by the granite industry.)

  2. anon,

    lol. Time to short the granite industry.

  3. I really like the picture from the "backyard". It looks like this neighborhood needs more regentrification.
