quick search in the MLS came up with recent sales under $500k for 2/2, and one that just went under contract, it was listed for $499.9k and went under contract in 7 days, can't tell the final sold price yet.

So to answer your question, not impossible, but not easy and you need to be able to act immediately to get something under contract.

If you're not working w/a realtor, you should get one, they'll be able to help you. You'll probably be in a bidding war at that price point, so strategically, you need to figure out how to make your contract the most attractive to the seller. You're welcome to contact me to talk about specific strategies or 703-407-3426

I held #5010 open on sunday. A good one bedroom with sunny, southern exposure. Very convenient to Dupont, Au, and shopping. A good building, worth a look.

Hi Michelle,

Did you have a question? There only seems to be a statement and the rest is missing.

DC Sundland answered:
DC law does not allow discrimination on the basis of source of income, meaning that landlords can't refuse to accept HCVP (Section 8) vouchers. If they treat all applicants consistently, they can decline applicants for other reasons, though - they can require a particular minimum credit score, for example, and they aren't required to accept the conditions that may come with a voucher - if the Housing Authority inspector says that certain improvements have to be made in order to accept a voucher, they can decline to make those improvements (assuming that they're not violating other DC codes), and if the inspector says that the rent price is too high, the landlord could choose to keep the rent above an acceptable HCVP level rather than lower the rent in order to be able to accept an HCVP voucher. But no landlord in the District can legally refuse to accept vouchers. ... more

1824 R Street NW 20009 was an Inn from 2005-2010, it is now a private home, but could potentially be converted back pending zoning approval as it has the required parking.

Good Morning Ramona,

Certainly the question regarding the deductibility of the mortgage interest and other typical and usual deductions is a good one and the answer is, yes you certainly are allowed to deduct the interest from both the primary loan that you may take on and the interest for any underlying mortgage the building may have and a new owner will assume as part of their financing, if one exists.

I would offer that the larger considerations one may want to incorporate when over viewing condo vs. CO-OP Purchases are the following: Building rules and how they affect your goals and expectations, resale fungibility, building and CO-OP trends and how they compare to like condos in same area. Building recognition agreements with lenders and how that may affect your purchase and or when one intends to resell.

Much like many considerations relating to the best Real Estate decisions’, the answer is usually launched from an “It Depends platform”, one that collaborates with the purchaser to best identify your goals, intentions and defined parameters to define the best realistic options.

Kindly contact me if I may provide you with a next step approach to your search.
Thank you for your inquiry

If you haven't finalized the contract there isn't a problem at all. If you have finalized there contract you'll need to ask the builder/developer sales representative if they can move units as requested and check to see if there are additional costs involved.

Yes, I know, but consumers can opine. I was directing this more at tenants and prospects and not agents.

Who are these idiots? $20k to $35k for a parking space in Dupont? HAHA. I'll take all you have for $35k, please. They are worth closer to $40-50k outside and $50-60k inside, sometimes a little less because of restrictive covenants that go with them (i.e., condos). ... more
