DuPont Has Us Spinning in Circles
snowballfight3

Are you missing the snowball fights of last winter? Looking for information about Dupont Circle? Listings? History of the city? Best restaurants and shops? The Lise Howe Team is here with all that and more! Did you know that the history of Dupont Circle is not as old as the rest of the city? and that it wasn’t even called Dupont Circle originally? It was supposed to be called Pacific Circle! The intersection of Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New Hampshire Avenues with Nineteenth and P Streets was there on Pierre L’Enfant’s 1791 plan for the city, but the land that is Dupont Circle today was not part of the original purchase of land by George Washington for the Federal City.

AN OPEN LETTER TO A FICTIONAL SELLER
roofview

In listing a home for sale, it is crucial to be realistic. The most important decision a seller has to make in listing a property is the asking price. The market doesn’t care what the seller needs and will only pay what the home is worth. If you want to sell your home, you need to be realistic. Price your home in harmony with the rest of the market. No one is going to give you more than what your home is worth. The buyer can’t care what you need.
