Skipping Town

Apartment on Connecticut

Everyone leaves DC eventualy. It’s something that happens, like the coming of the seasons, traffic on K St., and the sucking of the Capitals, y’know, it’s just a given. Well, my friend Joann is heading out west to be with her fiancĂ©e, and she’s doing something crazy: she’s selling her condo herself. Take a look at that sweet little place up on Connecticut.

Yeah, I know, I sound like my own little agency, but really I’m just trying to help a friend escape. We all have that escape fantasy, picking up stakes and heading for someplace less political, someplace a bit less insane. Of course, she got lucky and is heading out west to my home state of California. Of all the dames with good luck…

Take a peek at her swank pad, and tell me that’s not a deal!

    Wait, someone is aiming for someplace less insane… and going to California? Is that like trying to find a more sober man to date by going to a Kennedy family reunion?

    Looks nice but a few thoughts come to mind….bubble market…condo glut…190K.

    Yeah, and I’d say your certifiable, Rich.

    Richwise is absolutely correct. I write only to ensure that no one gets suckered by this advertisement. The current market in the DC area does not support the asking price (or even *half* of it) and has been described as a real estate dead zone by Forbes. A savvy buyer can get a place that is twice the size with parking in an even better location for the asking price. Please do your research, people!

    *shrug* I think it’s nuts to pay those kind of prices but nobody is being ‘suckered’ by buying things at the market-determined price for something. Places to live are not pure investments like a stock you never physically touch; There’s a lot of subjective issues relating to appearance and location. If someone strongly wants to live in the city, in that area of town, that’s what things are closing for.
