What am I missing here? It's Sunday night, close to midnight, and I'm sitting in the Evers & Company office, presumably the only person left in the building. Am I here because I'm writing a contract? Or because I'm putting this awesome listing presentation together for tomorrow morning? Or because I love the mountain of chocolates for "visitors" Billy keeps at the front desk? Oh, no, none of the above. I'm sitting here because my house, like - as of this minute - 211,000 others in Montgomery County and DC, has no power. Why is that? I really don't have (9 comments)
Inside The Beltway, The Homes Are Smiling: Has Washington DC Been Insulated From The Housing Bubble? - 07/23/10 01:18 PM
Aren’t we lucky to live Inside the Beltway? Once again I was reminded of how differently the real estate and even the job market have weathered the crisis in DC when I listened to my broker on NPR yesterday. Donna Evers, together with the Washington Post’s real estate editor, Elizabeth Razzi, and Lisa Sturtevant, a professor from George Mason, was invited to discuss “A Housing Market Recovery” on the Kojo Nnamdi Show. The talk was on “healthy signs of recovery” that we might see here, and even the ever-so-cautious Razzi admitted that this is a great time to buy in the (0 comments)
What Does The Shark Have To Do With The Housing Market In Silver Spring? - 07/23/10 12:36 AM
The shark is back! Heading home from the Beltway and approaching Downtown Silver Spring at the DC Line this afternoon, I could see the tail from far away. I fiddled for my cell phone and was lucky enough to catch a few seconds at a red light. Check out that “dorsal fin”—(thanks, Amanda!)—on the roof! The Discovery Channel headquarters are decked out in celebration of the station’s “Shark Week,” a series of scary programs scheduled to run the first week of August. So, if you live in Silver Spring, or in nearby Shepherd Park/DC and Rock Creek Forest, if you regularly (5 comments)
DC’s “Real” Colonial Homes – A Well-Kept Secret - 07/19/10 04:50 PM
No, I’m not talking about 18th century houses which we don’t have a whole lot of here. (There have been too many termites, fires and riots in the Nation’s Capital.) Nor am I talking about the type of house we have more than enough of—probably 90 percent if you believe the realtors’ classification in the MLS--: the brick “Colonial.” (When in doubt, it’s always a Colonial.) I’m talking about an amazingly beautiful NW Washington DC neighborhood that many of the city’s inhabitants west of Rock Creek Park have barely heard of: the original part of the "Colonial Village" near the northern (2 comments)
