I am very excited to showcase 2314 Shannon Place SE as a COMING SOON listing, expected to hit the market on July 19, 2018. Just two doors down from my first home (purchased many moons ago), this little row home that could (and would) was in very, very bad shape when purchased by the property’s owner in 2017. See below for some photos of the property’s condition back then.
Fast forward to now, July 2018, and the property’s restoration and transformation are complete and merit a visit. Please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org should you not already have a buyer’s agent. (Redfin/Trulia/Zillow, etc. Browsers: COMING SOON properties are not publicly listed until they are live. If you want a head start, reach out now!)
The seller wants you (the occasional blog reader and/or potential buyer) to know the following:
(1) “The property that greets you today did not look so good in 2017. Its rehabilitation has been a true labor of love. Ask K questions about materials used, or anything else that might come to mind.
(2) #Anacostiarocks. Leaving the DMV was unexpected. Work obligations required a move … very, very far away. There is a vibrant community in Anacostia. From ListServs to group runs to community outings … it’s all pretty awe-inspiring. Home.
(3) UrbanLand Company (ULC) hosts great Happy Hour Opens, with the first at 2314 Shannon Place SE on July 19th!”
While still one of the most affordable neighborhoods in Washington, DC, Anacostia home prices have risen 19 percent! Online data shows that sixty percent of sales in Anacostia were on the market for ten days or less, and that the median days on market for homes in the neighborhood during the first quarter of 2018 came in at just ten days — the lowest total on record for Anacostia.
Some more highlights, according to the Washingtonian’s Best of Washington:
— Waterfront City … Navy Yard, the Wharf, the Anacostia River
— Summer Venue … Nationals Stadium (one metro stop away from Anacostia station!)
And, it if I still have your attention. Beyond the up-and-coming, new development glitz and glam, Anacostia is about community and grit. We do an annual Nip & Sip Event to get to know our neighbors. Residents open their doors and prepare meals and drinks to share with each other. The 11th Street Bridge Park project continues to gain momentum, aiming to do more than connect disparate neighborhoods; the community-led process hopes to spur inclusive development. And, residents continue to hold the Mayor accountable, whether through the Historic Preservation of Derelict District Property Act of 2016, which bestowed four derelict homes that have sat vacant for years in the Historic Anacostia neighborhood to the L’Enfant Trust for rehabilitation, or the Big K project, and ensuring its special merit designation meet both the affordable housing and Class A retail needs residents deserve.
Buy 2314 Shannon Place SE and join our crew? I sure hope so!
