Previous sale price (2001): $37,495

Eckington is hot right now, as this renovated 1895 four-bedroom brick Victorian row house attests. With new hardwood floors, exposed brick, and a downstairs rental unit, this is “city living, dc style!” at its most urban. Unlike the neighbors’, the wrought-iron-fenced back yard—er, cement parking pad—has nary a crack, and there’s plenty of discount shopping nearby, with Sunset Liquors right across Florida Avenue and a Lowest Price cash-only filling station around the corner. As the listing asks, “What mroe [sic] could you want?????” Perhaps a sales price that hews more closely to the preliminary 2005 taxable assessment: $106,340. —Mike DeBonis
