This headline is racist. Its just as likely due to the Biden's moving in. Actually, it reminds me of The Odd Couple. Can these two couples get along?

Hasn't all real estate in 'merikuh dropped by 5.1% (minimum)? Face it - it's jumped the shark and sliding downhill like a well-oiled bobsleigh.
(Winter Olympics are in a few days, folks!)

Headline FTA: White House, like a lot of U.S. real estate, lost value in '09

oldfarthenry: Hasn't all real estate in 'merikuh dropped by 5.1% (minimum)?

No, just the White House. Why do you ask?

Those people always drive down property values in the neighbourhood. Our prices here in Canada dropped about 5% after they moved in. We're thinking of severing the country off, floating it east, and creating a gated community with Norway and Sweden.

Yeah, because the White House will ever be "on" the market.

People have been buying the white house for the last century.

...and the year much of the GOP moved out of Washington.

Block-busting.

The White House is worth almost three hundred million dollars? Damn. I wonder how much Congress or the Pentagon would be worth.
 
2010-01-21 09:52:03 AM  
As soon as the Obamas moved in, all the other houses on the block had 'for sale' signs up within a week!
 
2010-01-21 09:53:30 AM  
There goes the neighborhood.

The Pentagon is probably worth a few hundred million like any giant office building. Congress is worth less.

Hell, would YOU want to live in it after Dubya spent 8 years there? Of COURSE it went down!

FTFY. Or did you mean the building?

The Bidens don't live at the White House, that would be the Number One Observatory Circle.

I thought the VP lived at Blair House.

But it's definitely due to Biden white trashing up the neighborhood.

The VP and his family don't live in the White House.

On the plus side I hear they have a great sound system now and all the grape soda you can drink.

On this, I agree. However...

Its just as likely due to the Biden's moving in.

Biden didn't move in, at least not there. The Vice President lives at the Naval Observatory, not the White House.

Whoops. I thought that was called Blair House, but now I see that Blair House is the WH guest house.

I still blame Biden for hanging out in front of the WH, washing his TA and blasting his Billy Squier tapes.

Thought it would go up in value when changing from a nutward to a gov. building.

The downside though is the state of the art pit bull fighting ring on the East Lawn, and the drastic increase in window sill pie theft throughout the neighborhood...

Yeah, but Rahm Emanuel is jewish, so that's like...+2 to property values..or something.

2010-01-21 10:05:07 AM  
So do they actually evaluate the white house in any way, or do they just say "Well, the average % is this, so the white house increased/dropped by that too"

2010-01-21 10:14:17 AM  
Sweet! I was thinking about picking up one of the Smithsonians or maybe making a bungee jump base out of the Washington monument. Now that blacks have moved in and lowered the price if the neighborhood, maybe all of my dreams can come true!

I knew an old man who claimed he "knew it was time to move out" when a black surgeon purchased a house in his neighborhood. This old white guy, when he worked at something other than redline renting slums to poor blacks and gambling, had been a truck driver. He was convinced that the black surgeon was inferior.

yes, but lower value means.... lower property taxes!
 
2010-01-21 10:25:42 AM  
For the record...all real estate is local. This national market people keep referring to...does not exist. You may be noticing a large trend occuring in different markets across the U.S., but in some cities the market is still booming.

atomic-age: I knew an old man who claimed he "knew it was time to move out" when a black surgeon purchased a house in his neighborhood. This old white guy, when he worked at something other than redline renting slums to poor blacks and gambling, had been a truck driver. He was convinced that the black surgeon was inferior.

Maybe that's because he went up to the guy and said "Hello doctor, a pleasure to meet you."

And the surgeon responded "Yo, wat up dawg. You see my new crib? It's all fly like a mother farker. Yo, you hear dat I do da op'ratin' and shiat?"
 
2010-01-21 10:29:16 AM  
It was the result of 'White flight' in the neighborhood.
