What Do These Capitol Hill Listings Have in Common?

We recently sold TWO properties for our seller client, a longtime Hill resident, who held these homes as family investments for more than 20 years.

507 E St NE


  • Homes served as rental properties for 20 years
  • Both contain beautiful original features, including hardwood floors, moldings and trims, and fireplaces, but needed some LOVE and general updates.
  • Both homes boast EXCELLENT locations – one close to Stanton Park / H Street, the other close to Lincoln Park / Eastern Market.
  • Each home presented an INCREDIBLE opportunity for the owner to maximize Return on Investment with the ‘right updates’ to attract today’s buyer.

That’s when Joel Nelson Group stepped in…

After receiving cash offers for each property, the owner set up a consultation with Listing Expert Joel Nelson to talk through the pros and cons of bringing each home to market. Joel conducted a walk through of each property with the owner, highlighting the original details to enhance while suggesting the KEY updates that would generate the maximum return but remain cost-effective.

In the end, each property went to market and generated 30% more on sold price than either original cash offer!

How did Joel Nelson Group generate 30% more on sold price?
