The Story Behind an $8.8M, Two-Home, All-Cash D.C. Sale
At first blush, the record that showed up Thursday in D.C.'s Recorder of Deeds suggested an epic bidding war for a below-mansion-sized home in Wesley Heights, with the buyer paying nearly $2 million over asking price. But, it turns out, the buyer, a Delaware LLC called Ava's Creek, acquired two home simultaneously, paying nearly $9 million for 3000 and 3010 44th Place NW. Just your typical simultaneous two-home, all-cash luxury real estate transaction in the nation's capital. The larger of the two homes, 3000 44th Place, hit the market in February for $6.995 million, according to Realtor.com. The 6,000-square-foot, seven-bedroom and seven-bath home, owned by John and Suzanne King, was listed by Ted Gossett of Washington Fine Properties. The Colonial-style home sits on a 9,200-square foot lot. Next door, the 2,600-square-foot 3010 44th Place was also owned by the Kings - at one time, Gossett said, they intended to knock it down to expand their garden - and listed for sale separately in February for $1.8 million.

This DC House Sold for $800,000 Over Asking Price
When Muffin Lynham, an agent with Washington Fine Properties, arrived to her open house in American University Park last month, she was amazed to find people snaked down the sidewalk even though it was snowing. True, the white-washed brick Colonial checked a lot of the right boxes for the typical well-to-do pandemic buyer: It was a single-family detached house, in a leafy pocket of Upper Northwest, with a pool and a yard. But still. Even with the crummy weather, the listing had a packed weekend of showings and pre-inspections. At the end of it, Lynham got 16 offers. The house, originally listed for $1,850,000, closed this week for $2,650,000 - an eye-popping $800,000 above its asking price.
