First Friday-Did they sell?

In the Shepherd Park edition of First Friday, I featured two houses.  Let's explore how long they were on the market and the final sale price.

1121 Kalmia St, NW was a renovated, semi-attached townhouse with three bedrooms, two full baths and two half baths.  The kitchen has been renovated with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances.  The property featured hardwood floors, new windows, and a slate patio.
It's 1391 square feet and was initially listed for $475,000.  It had several price reductions.  It sold for $399,000 with a $11,900 seller subsidy in 27 days.
