Our latest listing made the Washingtonian!

We love it when our listings make the news! This affordable, charming, and bright unit at The Clydesdale was featured in the Washingtonian‘s list of Best Open Houses! We like to get creative with our marketing to showcase when a Condo or Coop listing we have is pet-friendly and, in this case, we asked the photographer to take a photo of our clients’ adorable Yorkie pup to include in the virtual tour and marketing materials. Sorry, Manchego does not convey with the property.

Client Success Story: Insane Equity in 1 Year

Josh Zimmerman, an engineer who works for the U.S. Patent Office, is a savvy investor whose sweat equity paid off big time. Josh purchased his purple 2-unit rowhouse in Shaw in October 2014 for $625,000. He used a 203K renovation loan to help finance the critical renovations (mold remediation, gutting the lower level unit, structural and roof repairs) and he put a lot of sweat equity into the kitchens, master bath, and cosmetic updates. In August 2015, he refinanced and his new and greatly improved home appraised at $925,000. That’s almost a 50% increase in value in less than 1 year and $300K in equity! Way to go, Josh!
