Imagine you have around $600,000 to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two Foggy Bottom condos. How do you make up your mind? The answer is simple: you shove them into a metaphorical cage and let them battle it out until one emerges victorious. It's time for Real Estate Deathmatch.
|2475 Virginia Avenue NW Unit 200/201
|700 New Hampshire Avenue NW Unit 816
↑ This Foggy Bottom condo at 2475 Virginia Avenue NW is $1,000 cheaper, almost 350-square-feet larger, and has monthly HOA dues that cost a total of $1,443, which is almost $250 cheaper than the other listing. This corner unit features built-in bookshelves, a private terrace, and hardwood flooring. One major downside to this supposed two-bedroom unit is that one of the bedrooms is located in the family room. So, if you're planning on throwing a party, you'll need to feel comfortable either allowing your guests to sneak a peek at your Batman duvet or feel comfortable sleeping with someone watching TV only a foot or two away from you.
↑ At 700 New Hampshire Avenue NW, some of the amenities you'll find include a pool and a 24-hour front desk. The renovated condo offers floor-to-ceiling windows, a partial balcony, and an updated kitchen with custom cabinets and granite countertops. Another upside to this listing is that it also includes a wet bar.
