High-income millennials use their buying power on luxury homes

A surprisingly high number of millennials around the country and in the Washington region earn a high enough income to afford a $1 million residence. According to research by Zillow, Arlington has more millennials with a household income of $350,000 or more than any other jurisdiction in the country, with 8.7 percent of millennials among that wealthy cohort.

The District is also on the list, tied at eighth place with New York City, both places where 2.8 percent of millennials have a household income of $350,000 or more.

“Most of the millennials we see who have the money to buy a $1 million home are households with two lawyers,” said Daryl Judy, an associate broker with Washington Fine Properties. “Some also work for tech companies or are associated with bio-tech research. A surprising number of people in their early 30s that we’ve worked with are taking over their parents’ businesses.”

Award-winning contemporary home in Arlington is on the market

By binding together cubes of various sizes and shapes, renowned D.C.-based architect David Jameson transformed an unremarkable ranch-style house into a striking contemporary home in the Arlington Ridge community. Although the footprint of the 1946 house remains, its shape and size have been dramatically altered.

Jameson did more than open a few walls and plop a second-story addition on the low-slung house. He created a Jengalike structure with boxes positioned next to and on top of one another.

Luxury penthouse emerges from remodeled 1890 D.C. rowhouse

Shaw is among the District’s hottest neighborhoods for dining and shopping, so it’s no wonder that builders have targeted it for upscale developments.Lock7 Development recently restored and remodeled a circa 1890 Federal-style rowhouse into two contemporary condominiums, each with three or four outdoor spaces along with a parking space and luxurious interior finishes. Known as the Burlingham, the condo is at 919 R St. NW, four blocks from the Shaw-Howard U Metro station.

One unit has been sold, but the penthouse unit, at 1,674 square feet, is priced at $1,299,990. This two-level unit has an open floor plan on the first level with a living area with a bay window alcove, an open kitchen and an open dining room with a balcony. At the back of this level is a bedroom with a wall of closets, a full bathroom and a private balcony. On the second level are a roof deck, a den or office, another full bathroom and a second bedroom with a private balcony and a wall of closets.

Logan Circle: A Tale of Two Eras

One of the neighborhood’s signature draws is the historic Victorian-style townhomes that fan out from the circle itself, as well as the smaller townhomes along the neighborhood’s quiet side streets. In 2016, the average price for a house in Logan Circle was $1.34 million (a steady increase from $1.25 million in 2014). The average sale price for a condo in the neighborhood last year came in at almost $680,000.

“I don’t think prices are going to go up exponentially in the future, but growth will remain steady” said Daryl Judy, an associate broker with Washington Fine Properties and 15-year Logan Circle resident. “In a sense, we’re a little insulated here from larger market changes.”

The Best Listing of the Year (For a Well-Paid Lobbyist)

12-21-2016

DC is now a town replete with high-end, luxurious homes that appeal to the city’s growing, well-heeled clientele. So, finding a listing that should be highlighted above all others for a given year is not an easy task. Here is our favorite for 2016.

The owners of 1516 Kingman Place NW purchased the rowhouse in May 2014, and then immediately embarked on a renovation with AllenBuilt and architect Jon Hensley that not only revamped the interior, but almost doubled the home’s footprint.

The back of the home was extended twelve feet to make way for a living space, a Pedini-designed kitchen with a massive Cesarstone island and a 16-foot wide glass and steel system that opens to the renovated back deck.

“We recognized the house had good bones but we wanted to enhance it with a large indoor/outdoor space for entertaining,” the owners told UrbanTurf. “We made the kitchen the heart of the house, as that is where everyone naturally congregates.”

The second level was renovated to be completely open, except for a pocket door that closes off the master suite. The lower level was made into a family room with space for another bedroom.

Unfortunately, the owners didn’t have very long to enjoy the renovation. Shortly after it was complete, the couple relocated to Florida for work. The home went on the market in February, but didn’t stay there very long, as it was under contract in less than a week.

Waiting in line for a luxury condo paid off for 20 lucky and wealthy buyers

11-16-2016-1

Daryl Judy of Washington Fine Properties was one of the real estate agents who hired someone to stand in line for him last week to snag one of the coveted appointments with the sales staff of Westlight, a 71-unit luxury condo building under construction in the West End neighborhood of Northwest Washington.

On Monday night, Judy learned his preparation and foresight were rewarded. Not only did he get an appointment, but also the contract he submitted on behalf of his clients was accepted by the developer.

All 20 units released by the developer were put under contract, according to Mei-Mei Watts Venners, director of sales at Westlight. Every unit went under contract at full list price or higher. Prices for the units start at $625,000 for 631 square feet and run upward of $4.4 million for a 3,051-square-foot three-bedroom residence. One unit received four offers. Venners declined to say how much above the asking price that unit went for.

Because D.C. law gives buyers 15 days to change their mind, Venners and her staff were in the process of writing back-up contracts with those buyers who lost out in the first round.

“We’re thrilled,” Venners said. “Everybody seems very pleased.”

Knowing the demand would be great, Judy hired someone to stand in line starting at 5 a.m., even though no appointments would be taken until noon.

“We had a plan A, plan B and plan C,” said Judy who wound up No. 15 in line. “This is the one we wanted, but we were fearful. Of the 20, I didn’t know if anyone was going to get mine or not.”

Judy was given an appointment on Thursday. Because he was out of the country that day, he had his business partner submit the contract.

“We wrote a really good offer they couldn’t say no to,” Judy said.

Where will Trump administration officials live in Washington?

11-9-2016-1

Here come the swamp-drainers!

The Republican folks scattered all over the country (as far away as Wasilla, Alaska?) who will be answering President-elect Donald Trump’s calls to serve in his administration will soon be moving in. They’ll be buying condominiums and mini-mansions and tooling around the streets in those dark sedans and taking the private tables in the city’s steakhouses.

They will, of course, given their anti-establishment mandate, take pains to avoid the appearance that they’re actually happy to be in Washington, a town they’ve derided as a cesspool of bureaucratic bog-rot. Potomac fever is to be avoided at all costs.

But they have to live somewhere. So where to look?

Daryl Judy, an associate broker at Washington Fine Properties, notes that Washington has changed since the days that an election meant a housing shake-up. “D.C. is not a one-industry town anymore,” he says.

And what about a movement the other way — as in all those people who swore they’d leave the country if Trump was elected? Judy isn’t expecting a migration. “People are staying — they have PTA meetings and kickball teams, and schools that are improving and great restaurants … and a city we love.”

The “O” House in Logan Circle Hits the Market

There were two things that made the new residence — dubbed “The O House” after the original lot owner John O’Hagan — stand out. For one, it was the first major brick structure constructed on the 1500 block of P Street NW. Second, the home was built detached and set back from the street, two reasons that it differentiates itself from the attached rowhomes on the central Logan Circle street.

From the inside out, this Chevy Chase single-family home has undergone a complete makeover with new paint, hardwood flooring, and an expansion that includes a two-car garage.

Just walking to the front porch is a completely different experience than it was before. The landscaping has been redone, and the facade features an all grey color. Inside, the residence comes with an open floor plan, recessed lighting, and an all-white color scheme. The kitchen also boasts a tile backsplash, island, and stainless steel appliances.

This property had been a large house with three levels of living space above grade and an unfinished basement. You can see the condition from when it was tenant occupied and transferred in 2014 for $896,000. here. As have many residentially zoned rowhomes throughout DC in recent years, it was converted to two substantially sized duplex condo units. The original Good Deal or Not (GDoN) post drew over 100 comments, many debating the value of a condo conversion versus a house. listing reported that, at that time, the home “needs significant updating”.

Mount Pleasant has been and is a very competitive market for buyers shopping for single family houses. To date, since the beginning of 2016, 43 fee simple houses have transferred ownership. Not surprisingly, with extremely limited available inventory, these places move fast with median days on market at one week. Basically, that’s enough time for it to be listed, shown and held open over the weekend, then a few days for pre-inspections and agents to get offers together, and finally, offer review. On average, homes are selling for nearly 2 percent over asking and average settled price this year in Mount Pleasant for houses is $1,051,810.

Although there have previously been seven figure condo sales in the legal subdivision of Mount Pleasant, these tend to be in the neighborhood that most consider Adams Morgan, south of Columbia Road. This is the first seven figure condo sale in the neighborhood bounded by Rock Creek Park to the west and north, Harvard Street to the south, and 16th Street to the east. The next highest condo sale in the immediate neighborhood in 2016, which was also a converted rowhome, with a total of 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, settled at a net of $740,000. in late July.

The listing agents for this sale were Daryl Judy and Kimberly Casey with Washington Fine Properties.

Kingman Place House

Adam Unger and James Nozar were knowledgeable about contemporary design and well equipped to take on the total renovation of a tired row house in the historic Logan Circle neighborhood. Nozar, a senior real estate development and design executive who was also then serving on the Building Committee of the Studio Theatre’s Board of Directors, first met Jon Hensley, AIA, LEED, AP, and admired the architect’s work when he was designing two residential projects for the theater. Nozar and Hensley soon signed up Hensley for their Logan Circle project. In addition, the homeowners brought into the team John Allen of Allen Built, Inc, a constriction/build firm, who had worked with them on a previous home renovation in the city and who was also the contractor on the Studio Theatre projects. “Right from the started we knew we all shared the same aesthetic and were confident it would be a great team” recalled Unger.

Those experiences, combined with lots of other sales in the neighborhood, mean “we know what people want,” said Judy. Hence the custom work and top-of-the-line finishes throughout this property. The yield is modern but not trendy, he notes — a “transitional look” that “is going to appeal to many more buyers.” Case in point: the four bids that came in yesterday for the penthouse.”

Real-Estate ‘Pocket Listings’ Go Mainstream

Pocket listings—also known as “whisper” and “coming soon” listings—have been popular for years among celebrities and the wealthy seeking to shield their privacy. But they increasingly are used by a broader segment as the housing market heats up and inventory remains tight.

“We’re very much in a seller’s market,” said Daryl Judy, who notes that “buyers really love” access to houses that aren’t publicly listed, while sellers have greater control over the process.

In 1975, not many years after riots decimated parts of the District, Jackie and Charles Reed found this Logan Circle Victorian that was less than a block from 14th Street NW, one of the hardest-hit areas.

Even though most people would have walked away given the daunting project, the Reeds saw the enormous potential, not the pitfalls involved in renovating the 1887 house that had been designed by noted architect Harvey L. Page.

“We walked in, we saw the staircase and that was it,” Jackie Reed said. “We just fell in love with the architecture, and we thought there’s no way [the neighborhood] wouldn’t get renovated because it was so close to everything.”

Even with that markup, the penthouse earlier this month received multiple offers and went under contract, significantly above the asking price.” The condo was listed by associate brokers Daryl Judy and Kimberly Casey of Washington Fine Properties.

Power Brokers: A Brisk Business

“National real estate figures only recently have started to creep back up from the recession that began in 2008, but Washington’s high-end real estate market has been bullish for years, and local experts project that it will remain strong in 2013.”

Several factors are contributing to this luxury home boom. Foremost, many buyers see the area’s stable real estate market as a safer way to protect their wealth than the stock market. “We maintained our values better than any other city [throughout the recession]. People are starting to see real estate bottom out,” explains Daryl Judy, an associate broker with Washington Fine Properties.

Kimberly Casey & Daryl Judy Sell Another Significant Historic Georgetown Home

“Those go-to agents from Washington Fine Properties have done it again. Kimberly Casey and Daryl Judy just sold another world-class property with Presidential provenance and more than a dollop of Georgetown history: the former Georgetown home of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy’s parents, Hugh D. and Janet Lee Auchincloss.”

This is what Casey told The Georgetown Dish, “The search for a home of this scale, provenance and grandeur in a prime location takes time as they are so rare and most of these properties never make it to the market publicly. The buyers could not be happier and it has been my sincere privilege to help them in the process to make their dream a reality. Further, the fact that there have been three sales in Georgetown over $7 million this year, where there were only two all of last year, says a lot about the confidence in our market.”

Nick Churton Considers the Importance of a Very Fine House in Georgetown

“Some houses, like the White House, are built for greatness whilst others, like the Laird-Dunlop Coach House, have greatness thrust upon them through their owners. Like fine art and antiques a good provenance is no bad thing for any house and this one has a provenance like few others. In this part of the world the sales these very fine houses are invariably handled by Washington Fine Properties. They handled both ends of this transaction. Eileen McGrath and Jamie Peva represented the seller, while Kimberly Casey and Daryl Judy represented the purchaser. All were honored to represent a property with such significant history.”

Washington Fine Properties Sells Historic Laird-Dunlop Coach House

“John Laird, a wealthy tobacco tycoon, built the detached brick house in 1799 as a carriage house to the Laird-Dunlop estate. Since then, it has been host to several prominent owners including James Dunlop, a law partner of Francis Scott Key and former chief justice of the D.C. Circuit Court, Robert Todd Lincoln, the eldest son of Abraham Lincoln, Arnold Sagalyn, one of Eliot Ness’ “Untouchables,” and Helen Burgess, the granddaughter of J.P. Morgan. It was Burgess who separated the coach house from the rest of the property, retaining much of the land for herself and adding a ballroom for proper entertaining.”

“I am so excited for the purchasers,” added Casey. “The best part of being a real estate agent is making our clients happy and the purchasers of 30th Street could not be more thrilled!”

Historic Washington DC Coach House Sells for $7.6 Million

“Now known as the Laird-Dunlop Coach House, the five-bedroom, eight-bathroom home is one of the most prominent properties in Georgetown. In 1915, the home was bought by Abraham Lincoln’s son, Robert Todd Lincoln, who served as Secretary of War and as Ambassador to the United Kingdom. Mr. Lincoln lived there until his death in 1926. The wide, two-story structure—unusual in a neighborhood of narrow row houses rife with steep stairs –has a grand ballroom with 14-foot ceilings and a wall of French doors that open onto a large garden. In the backyard, steps from the pool, stands a weathered pillar that’s one of the four cornerstones that bound Georgetown when it was formed in 1751.”

The buyer, who was represented by Kimberly Casey and Daryl Judy, couldn’t be identified. Private equity executive Rick Rickertsen was the owner of the Georgetown home.
