'Deep Throat' Apartment Hits the Market

deep throat

Watergate history buffs, take note: The infamous D.C. apartment where journalist Bob Woodward met with undercover informant "Deep Throat" (later revealed to be FBI associate director Mark Felt) is now listed for $215,000. Just think -- even when the novelty of living in the space where Nixon's presidency died wears off, you'll have a great balcony to store your potted plants. Curbed has the full story.

curbedThe 500-square-foot studio now known as the Deep Throat apartment is on the market for a mere $215K, The Washingtonian has reported.

It was here where Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward put a flowerpot on his balcony to signify his meetings with "Deep Throat," the informant (later revealed as FBI associate director Mark Felt) whose intel led directly to the Watergate scandal.

"I would love for someone who's come to Washington early in their career to buy it and fix it up," current owner Chris Blandamer said. "If you're interested in politics or journalism, what better apartment?"

Careful, though, this slice of Nixonian history comes without kitchen appliances or cabinetry: "This is a shell and ready for your creativity," boasts the listing.

Seller financing can be a great way to get a house sold without slashing the price. By recognizing the millions of people who can't get traditional financing as potential buyers, resourceful property sellers (and their real estate agents) can minimize their time investment in getting a property sold. Even better, sellers who offer financing can usually get a higher asking price for their property, even in the slowest markets. Clearly this is a win-win situation.

Most home sellers never consider financing the buyer directly because they are not aware of the benefits or don't fully understand how creating a note works. Let's take a closer look at the advantages of owner finance.
