I've decided the First Friday's from last year aren't relevant.  Instead, let's take a gander at what's been happening this year.  

I featured 1841 12th St, NW in January.  From the sold price, there were definitely multiple offers.  Anytime a house sells for 31K over the list price is a good day for the seller.   It also an indication of the low inventory level that's plauging the DC market. 

The three level Victorian was built in 1870.  Although it has been updated, the home retains many original architectural details like wide plank hardwood floors, pocket doors between the living and dining rooms, plaster moldings, and a wood burning fireplace.  It also features a renovated kitchen with open shelving, a lower level au-pair suite, a roof deck, a large master bedroom where the washer/dryer is located (love that!), a garden and two car parking.  The location is also fantastic:  one block to the Metro and minutes to U St. or Logan Circle.
