Real Estate in the Time of Coronavirus

Our dear friend and colleague, David Bediz, recently authored an article in The Blade on the current state of the market in the time of Coronavirus. Kara was quoted about her recent listing on Capitol Hill that just sold for $51,000 above list price. Check it out here.

“Some properties, like the recent listing at 142 Kentucky Ave., S.E. in Capitol Hill, listed by my colleague Kara Johnson, received three offers and sold in just 4 days.

Kara, a long-time agent at Keller Williams Capital Properties, attributes her success to the character of the property, its price and the desirability of the location. “It just fits for so many buyers out there. It was a great price and it was move-in ready,” she said.”
