The Ten Least Expensive Properties in Hyattsville

New, 1 comment

Welcome to PG County! Home to large suburban track housing, the Redskins stadium, and always interesting government officials. But PG is a huge county with diversity and interesting neighborhoods to boot. For this week's Least Expensive, we check out what's happening in Hyattsville. With its fashionable Arts District gaining traction, Hyattsville is close to the city, near plenty of transit options, has multitudes of multi- and single-family housing stock, and stellar deals for buyers who want to experience what may become the next "it" destination in the area. But buyers need to come prepared since many of these deals are short sales.

10. 4401 Oliver St
Asking Price: $160,000
Square Feet: 851
Price Per Square Foot: $188
The Lowdown: Our first featured Least Expensive Property is a 1921 3 bedroom, 1 bath home that is a potential short sale. Located on a large corner lot, this deal is ideal for someone who believes the only prefect house is one with a white picket fence.

9. 4303 Oglethorpe St
Asking Price: $153,900
Square Feet: 1,505
Price Per Square Foot: $102
The Lowdown: This 3 bedroom, 1 bath detached Rambler is being billed as an investment property. Last sold in 2011 for $272,788, this foreclosed property must be sold "as is" and without pics of the interior, we're not really sure what "as is" is.

8. 4000 Allison St
Asking Price: $129,900
Square Feet: 988
Price Per Square Foot: $131
The Lowdown: Nothing gets us excited more (well, there are a few things) than colorful listing descriptions. And this 2 bedroom, 2 bath detached Colonial definitely delivers. Small town charm: "Living in Brentwood is like living in a small town from yesteryear". Vacation destination: "Backs to Md watershed and conservation area with walking trail along the water and recreation galore. Never need a car to 'getaway'."

7. 3839 Hamilton St
Asking Price: $120,000
Square Feet: 967
Price Per Square Foot: $124
The Lowdown: Reduced from $135,000, this top-floor, end-unit 2 bedroom, 1 bath condo has a walk-in closet in the master bedroom, reserved parking, and a secure building entrance. And while the carpet is a bit nauseating, because this isn't a short sale, the buying headaches might be kept to a minimum.

6. 6105 41st Ave
Asking Price: $119,900
Square Feet: 900
Price Per Square Foot: $133
The Lowdown: This 2 bedroom, 1 bath semi-detached townhouse last sold in 2008 for around $310,000. This foreclosed property can be yours for as little as 3% down. And while it has an "in-ground swimming pool", we're not sure if it's in the development (our guess) or in the backyard (which would be awesome).

5. 4511 38th Ave
Asking Price: $97,500
Square Feet: 1,132
Price Per Square Foot: $86
The Lowdown: If you think clothing accessories are attractive, then this "cute as a button" 3 bedroom, 1 bath detached Cape Cod is worth your time. The foreclosed property has a fenced rear yard and was last sold in 2011 for nearly twice the current asking price.

4. 3450 Toledo Terrace
Asking Price: $45,000
Square Feet: 744
Price Per Square Foot: $60
The Lowdown: Another potential short sale. This 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo in the Seville development is close to the Prince George's Plaza Metro and has a $470 HOA that includes utilities. Reduced from $59,000, make sure you've got patience in spades before you start acquiring this steal.

3. 3450 Toledo Terrace
Asking Price: $44,000
Square Feet: 813
Price Per Square Foot: $54
The Lowdown: We're liking the stash of liquor on this condo's kitchen. The 1 bedroom, 1 bath "potential short sale" is on the Seville's 5th floor and has "newer kitchen cabinets" and is "open and inviting" so you can share your libations with others.

2. 4410 Oglethorpe St
Asking Price: $43,900
Square Feet: 730
Price Per Square Foot: $60
The Lowdown: Coming to us from the Oglethorpe, this 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo is a short sale. If you're looking at this property as a source of rental income, you'll need to think again since this unit must be owner-occupied. The monthly $449 HOA includes utilities.

1. 4410 Oglethorpe St
Asking Price: $38,000
Square Feet: 720
Price Per Square Foot: $53
The Lowdown: And our least Least Expensive Property in Hyattsville comes from the Oglethorpe. And yes, it's only $53 per square foot. The 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo is (relatively) close to the College Park and Prince George's Plaza Metros, and features a black-and-white tiled kitchen and a nice bathroom. This isn't listed as a short sale, and there's even a "$5,000 grant to buy this condo".
