File this in the you-ain't-seen-it-all file, or the greed-ahead-of-common-sense folder, but a house is listed for sale in Brightwood that has no roof. It's a shell of a house that DCRA put a stop work order on last year for "illegal construction / working without a permit," according to an article from Washingtonian.
They're asking $499,999 for this opposite of a turn-key structure.
Located near Georgia Avenue and a block from the Walter Reed complex, the house at 7110 9th Street NW in Brightwood was previously purchased for $332,168 by someone associated with Taja Investments LLC in 2015 (a company that excellent DC blog Frozen Tropics covered in a series of tweets in 2012), according to Washingtonian.
Is it just greed? Is this what property values are now, a shell of a house can command a half a million dollars asking price? Does this mean my rowhouse is worth a cool mil because I actually have a roof (redone a few years ago, too!)?
Head over to the Washingtonian to read the full article.
