You got to be kidding me…

Original Listing Price: $600,000 (Aug. 10, 2008)

Current Listing Price: $600,000

This pea green three-bedroom house has a great view of America’s most famously shabby hospital, Walter Reed. The listing boasts that it is “perfect for home, office, or prof. business,” since the area is zoned for commercial use. Unfortunately, the listing also states that “this diamond in the rough is in need of a total makeover.”


That’s more like it…

6105 4th St. NW

Neighborhood: Manor Park

Original Listing Price:$390,900 (June 30, 2008)

Current Listing Price:$359,900

Grassy fields and a recreation center up the street. A Safeway a few blocks away. A porch fit for lemonade-drinking. Shrubbery to spare. This simple three-bedroom might as well be in upper Silver Spring or Rockville, though it is actually tucked away in a quiet corner of the District. Apparently, the house is very quiet these days as well. According to the listing, it is being sold as an estate sale.
