Of the 18 homes listed for sale last week in Capitol Hill extended, only five are under contract. That’s pretty fast action … in Cleveland, and below par for D.C.

The 13 remaining now have these new listings, plus others to compete with.

Open this weekend:

Of 40 houses listed in broader Capitol Hill last week, all but 11 are GONE! A smaller batch out this week may mean the rush is over, but seems a bit early, so don’t lose hope, buyers. When you least expect it …

Here’s a nice group of open houses for the under $800,000 crowd:

1004 Constitution Ave. NE — Open Sunday, 2-4 p.m. $734,000. 2 BR/1.5 BA up, plus 1BR in-law basement

208 Kentucky Ave. SE — Open Saturday and Sunday, 1-3 p.m. $796,000. 3 BR/1.5 BA, large, warm, right off Lincoln Park

917 E St. SE — Open Sunday 2-4 p.m. $876,500. 3 BR/1 BA up, 1 BA basement-level, aka den, with parking. A stone’s throw to Barracks Row

111 11th St. SE — Open Sunday, 2-4 pm. $689,000. 2 BR/1 BA up, partial basement. Rustic, fireplace, just south of the park

1428 Ames Place NE — Open Saturday and Sunday, 1-4 pm. $725,000. 3 BR/1.5 BA up, in-law suite below, garage

Or, for just a few bucks more, you can live at 906 East Capitol St. NE, in a 6 BR/4.5 BA, priced at only $2.15 million. I guess money can buy you love …

Townhouse inventory is inching up, but sellers still rule. Out of roughly 178 homes listed in Capitol Hill extended this year, only 50 have not sold.

Within Capitol Hill proper, only 15 homes are available out of 57 listed this year, but don’t let that number fool you, five of those have just been listed in the past few days.

I’ve walked through all of these; some will sell fast and others are just fascinating.

Speaking of close in:

  • 608 A St. NE. (Under contract/some sneaky devil/open house cancelled). $1.535 million. Over 2,000 square feet on two floors, plus a massive basement and garage
  • 603 A St. SE. Open Saturday and Sunday, 1-3 p.m. $918,000. 2 BR/1.5 BA up, legal 1 BR apartment down. Four-star block

Just east of Eastern Market:

  • 528 13th St. SE. Open Saturday and Sunday, 1-3 p.m. $898,000. Massive 2 BR (2 suites), plus office, family room, great yard and parking

Close in/Lincoln Park:

  • 1351 A St. NE. Open Sunday, 1-3 p.m. $965,000. 3 BR/1 BA up, in-law apartment below, garage. Airy
  • 1234 C St. NE. Open Saturday and Sunday, 1-3 p.m. $938,500, 3 BR/1.5 BA up, in-law suite below, garage, sleek

Two pop-ups — you tell me:

  • 447 Tennessee Ave. NE. Open Sunday, 1-4 p.m. $947,000, 4 BR/3.5 BA, worth a look even if you’re not cool enough to handle living in it
  • 316 Kentucky Ave. SE. Open Sunday, 1-4 pm. $1,050 million, 4 BR/3.5 BA, tripped on the stairs walking in, but it got better …

A surprising number of homes have hit the market this week, considering how many Capitol Hill buyers might be traveling away from the city. But if mom is visiting, this is a really inexpensive way to spend a Sunday afternoon, on a private house/garden tour.

604 A St. NE — Open Sunday 12-3 p.m. $1.347 million. 4 BR/3.5 BA, 4-star block

548 14th St. SE — Open Sunday 2-4 p.m. $749,900. 3 BR//3 BA, Potomac Avenue Metro station

716 K St. NE — Open Saturday and Sunday 1-3 p.m. $799,900. 3 BR/3.5 BA, heart of H Street corridor

335 11th St. SE — Open Sunday 1-3 p.m. $800,000. 3 BR/2.5 BA, Eastern Market

More than a few competitive listings are out this weekend, with sellers likely wanting to beat the holiday. If there were ever a time in the past two years to pick up a good Capitol Hill house in the $700s, it is now!

1412 K St. SE — Open Sunday 1-3 p.m. Seemed pricey on paper at $749,000 for a two-bedroom, but it is not. I loved it. A really nice surprise by the Potomac Avenue Metro station. Very artsy and really pulled together well.

1429 East Capitol St. SE — Open Sunday 1-4 p.m. A block and a half from Lincoln Park, an incredible buy at its list price, and perfectly nice as is, but could use a little sprucing.

1738 Bay St. SE — Open Sunday 1-3 p.m. Very close to the Stadium Armory Metro station, quiet Congressional Cemetery. Nice renovation and big. Another really good buy at $759,900.

307 E St. NE — Open Sunday 1-3 p.m. Another big (nice) surprise in the mid-$700s. Super clean. Almost sleek. A wonderful little studio/carriage house in the rear.

In my humble opinion, the only reason that each of my picks this week would not perform above their respective list prices is because they are all on the market at the same time. Option paralysis anyone?
