But this is a fascinating one folks…

*This is the second above-the-sales-price deal I’ve recently spotted in the general Columbia Heights region, the top of the “gentrification plume” as my boss Erik Wemple would term it. In both cases, the houses were clearly priced correctly, and were whooosh gone within less than two months. This one was a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it flip job. The last sale was for $157,000 in late December 2008. The sale was registered in the real property assessment database in January 2009. Again, it just sold…for $193,000 more. Here’s an old street view shot:
