  1. David,

    I enjoy your blog and thank you and all your participants for the good information available to me a another wanna be first time buyer patiently waiting to see if prices will fall to a level I can afford.

    This may not be the right forum to ask ths question..but do you know anything about the Dakota Crossing development which is supposed to be build right off of South Dakota Avenue in NE near Fort Lincoln? The Pulte development has been advertised for about 9 months, but prices have not been set and the sales date continues to be pushed back. I can't get any information from Pulte, no straight answers.


  2. hey! I read it too...why isn't mine on there. Oh, wait I see it: Department of Justice. Thanks for the mention,

    Alberto Gonzalez.

  3. Crap. I've been uncovered! Now everyone will know that I base all my decisions on the analysis of anonymous armchair economists on this site. Crap!

  4. I also work for the fed gov't and look here (lunch and breaks, of course). My concern is the economy and how to get through this storm with my hide intact. Gov't people have to be concerned about retirement too because our retirement is now 401k based and we do not have very good choices ov investment vehicles.

    I am an engineer and work hard getting paid to find ways to save money and reduce inefficiency. That is my job. I get good results.

  5. And here I thought only porn shop jizz moppers like me posted to these blogs.

    Long after the last of the realtors is laid off, yours will still be an honorable and lucrative profession, sir. Huzzah!

  6. Some good names on your list.
    Don't forget these places employ
    people like us who like to surf and blog.

  7. anon,

    don't know about that project on s. Dakota. I'll talk to my sources.

  8. I've noticed US DOJ browsing my blog as well. Big Brother is watching!


  9. Those townhouses look just like the townhouse I rented in northern Virginia in 2005. Horrible place. The garages were so narrow no one on my block put their car away. My Accord would fit with about 6 inches on both sides and the rear. The first floor is much colder than the top floor so the place is never really comfortable year round. Only one- zone heating and cooling, and the heating is often a heat pump. Shallow closets. No overhead light fixtures in any room. Speaking of rooms—they’re small. Sometimes I thought I was living in a dollhouse. Yet these places were selling for nearly $600,000 in the summer of 2005 in the Fairfax-Oakton-Vienna area.

  10. Add University of California, Davis to the list >; )
