This property is being sold by the District of Columbia Government.  See below for offering instructions:


The DC Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) is pleased to offer two fully renovated properties for sale through listings with Alex Cooper Real Estate.

The two properties, located at 514 3rd Street, NE, and 606 Keefer Place, NW, are single-family residences.  The listings of these properties will be administered by DHCD's Property Acquisition and Disposition Division (PADD). PADD was established at the beginning of fiscal year 2008 and consolidates the Homestead Housing Preservation Program, the Home Again Program, the Land and Housing Development Opportunities Program and other property acquisition and disposition functions into one division. The goal of PADD is to stabilize neighborhoods by (1) decreasing the number of vacant and abandoned properties in the District, and (2) transforming vacant and/or deteriorated properties into homeownership or economic development opportunities for District of Columbia residents at all income levels. The two properties being listed were renovated through a new PADD pilot program called the Residential Turnkey Initiative where the District retains ownership of properties during development. To further the goal of creating homeownership opportunities, entities are barred from participating in the Residential Turnkey Initiative. Offerors must be individuals or couples intending to live in the property as a principal residence for 5 years following purchase. At closing, offerors will be required to sign an affidavit affirming their intent to live in the property as their principal residence for 5 years.

PADD anticipates that the renovation and sale of fully rehabbed properties to homebuyers will contribute to the efforts to eliminate slum and blight from DC neighborhoods.  If you would like more information about DHCD programs please visit http://www.dhcd.dc.gov.
