Exorbitant House of the Week, Garage Edition

"Do not get confused by addresses," warns the listing. "Record shows 1657 31st St. BUT it is way behind that address and is on the Alley off of Avon Place."

At $97,000, this week's exorbitant house is the most inexpensive one to date. Are the days of buying D.C. real estate for $100,000 back? Not quite; this listing isn't a house but a garage—despite its claim that it has 24 bedrooms and 24 bathrooms.

But before you jump to the conclusion that a 254-square-foot garage isn't worth your hard-earned $97,000, perhaps a bit more information will cause you to reconsider. "It is a garage," boasts the listing, "and it is lined with padding."
