Adorable 1 BR 1BA Coop in U St Corridor!

1440 W St. NW #403 (Click for Google Map)

Open House Sunday, November 23rd, 2-4 PM. Please call Meche to be let inside: 202-779-1173

Come and view this great 1 bedroom 1 bathroom unit conveniently located just blocks from the U Street Corridor and the U Street Metro Station. The Location cannot be beat. With a walk score of 97 it truly is a walker’s paradise – essentially all of your errands can be run on foot. Prefer to bike or take public transportation? This location has excellent transit options and is very bikeable with lots of bike lanes. This coop does have an income restriction. The maximum income one person can earn and still qualify for this unit is $47,950 (annually). Coop fees include underlying mortgage, taxes and some utilities. Way cheaper than paying rent. This unit has updated appliances, a great layout and is in good condition.

What is a coop?  It’s similar to a condo. There is a monthly fee, a mortgage, you live in the unit, share common areas, buy and sell it all the same as a condo. One difference is that you do not actually take the title of the property, the unit is owned by a corporation and you buy a share of the corporation resulting in a proprietary lease to live in the unit as long as you own the share.

Confessions of Home Buyers & Sellers: Michael & Victoria

Michael&Victoria

Check out what our most recent home buyers & sellers, Michael & Victoria, had to say about their experience with DC Home Buzz. Thanks for your contribution and congratulations on your new home!

What was the moment you decided to find a new place?

We have loved living in our Petworth house since 2009 (purchased through Ati and the DC Home Buzz team), but after our son was born, we wanted to move to a more quiet neighborhood and ideally find a house with a larger backyard and more privacy.

Why did you choose the neighborhood you chose?

We loved walking in Crestwood and enjoyed its proximity to downtown, but more serene and quiet feel than our previous place near Georgia Ave. We quickly transitioned from enjoying walking in the neighborhood to envisioning ourselves moving there for the right opportunity.

 

What were some of the complications you encountered during your home search? 

We had a complicated series of ups-and-downs, mostly associated with juggling the timing, financing, and logistics associated with both selling one house and purchasing another with the proceeds. The house we settled on had some additional complications due to a few points of contention associated with financing and inspection contingencies. Then the day of closing, we had some additional last minute hurdles. All in all, the stresses associated with the move itself almost didn’t seem bad by comparison.

How did the DC Home Buzz team help you to overcome those complications?  

Rob and the entire DC Home Buzz team were responsive, level-headed, and knowledgeable throughout the process. They helped us navigate the ups-and-downs and always came through with great counsel, whether about negotiations, finance, or the right fit for our family’s needs.

Did you purchase a fixer upper? Do you plan to do any renovations?

The home we purchased had recently been renovated, but we envision trying to make some progress on landscaping and some exterior upgrades.

Anything you wish you knew before you started the process? 

Despite wanting to approach the process mostly analytically, it’s impossible to not have your emotions about specific properties bleed into your thinking and occasionally seem overwhelming. That’s where the value of a trusted agent comes in handy.

Anything else you’d like to add? 

Our family is grateful to be in our new house and to the DC Home Buzz team for all the hard work on our behalf.

Columbia Heights Day Festival 2014 Wrap Up!

 

CHD-DCHB-Logos2014

Last Saturday, we had a blast at Columbia Heights Day!

The day started out rainy and cold but as the rain cleared the crowds at the festival grew. There were workshops, some great 11th Street food vendors from El Chucho and their yummy Mexican street corn to Red Rocks Pizza and The Coupe ’s pastries, coffee and cider to warm you up. (The cider was delish!) In all of the quirky 11th Street charm that we love there were fun activities including a charity dunk tank, adult tricycle races, pie eating contest and more.

DC Home Buzz was happy to offer a free photo booth for the enjoyment of festival goers which was sponsored by Alex Jaffe of First Home Mortgage. Thanks Alex!

Here’s a fun slideshow from the photo booth:

 

We also had THE BEST face painter Ciara (Gatoot Face Painting) on deck hooking kids (and some adults) up with mostly bee themed designs. Check out these 2 happy little bees here:
