New, 1 comment

Imagine you have around $800,000 to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two Washington, D.C. listings. 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.

Address: 1300 13th Street NW #605 421 9th Street NE
Price: $799,900 $785,000
Square Footage: 1,260 1,440
Beds, Baths: 3, 2 2, 1.5

↑ At the Solo Piazza condo development at 1300 13th Street NW #605, this listing is on the market with floor-to-ceiling windows, new hardwood flooring, and a gas fireplace. While the condo offers a spacious balcony, homebuyers can also enjoy the development's hidden zen-like interior courtyard with bamboo trees and a waterfall. The kitchen in this listing features Italian granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and Poggenpohl cabinetry. The development offers garage parking. The monthly HOA dues total to $608.

↑ For a little less money and with a little more space, this Capitol Hill row house is on the market with two stories of space, a detached brick garage, and a fenced-in backyard with a landscaped garden. The kitchen has been updated with honed marble countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a subway tile backsplash. Built in 1912, the listing still maintains some original details, including the original hardwood floors, the arts-and-crafts-style staircase, and the exposed brick walls. If you think this listing is a better deal than the former one, be sure to choose 421 9th Street NE in the below poll.
