    Hey Ghosts of DC — the house in the ad at 13th and Fairmont has had a “for sale” sign out for a while, and it just sold, for $990,000 — probably about 100 times the original price!

    I also really love the ad here for Virginia Highlands — “Want to vote? Move to Virginia”… I hope Arlington will reintroduce that slogan.
