The new administration may not officially take over until early next year, but some have had ties to the DC area for years, including President Elect Joe Biden and Vice President Elect Kamala Harris. While President Elect Biden and his wife once called Number One Observatory Circle home, they didn’t move far when his VP term ended nearly four years ago.

It’s said the Bidens soon began renting a home in McLean. That home offers around 12,000 square feet of living space, with five-bedrooms, a huge driveway, a gym and a sauna.

The Bidens have reportedly been tied to number of different properties in DC and in Delaware. They’ve owned a lakefront property in Wilmington, Delaware since the mid 1990s. They purchased the home around the same time Biden

DC may be home to some of the nation’s priciest real estate, but some neighborhoods continue to attract buyers primarily interested in an all-cash sale. While the percentage of all-cash sales is down slightly overall compared to previous years, it’s still an attractive option for a large number of DC area buyers.

Looking at the first eleven months of 2019 alone, cash buyers made up about 17-percent of all homes purchased in the District. Previously all-cash transactions had been holding around 20-percent or even higher.

In other words, about one in every five homes or even nearly one in every four homes in recent years has sold for cash. Surprisingly, the majority of DC neighborhoods attracting all-cash buyers are some of the priciest.

While DC boasts some great neighborhoods, you’re sure to find a true urban gem when it comes to the neighborhoods of Penn Quarter and the West End. Both locations have their own distinct charm and appeal but are favored in different ways.

Virtually in the middle of it all, the Penn Quarter neighborhood includes most of the Chinatown/downtown area that’s north of Pennsylvania between 5th and 9th streets NW. For years, the vibrant area was filled with restaurants, stores, theaters, offices and streetcar lines.

By the 1950s and 1960s however, many people had already fled to the suburbs, businesses closed, and the streetcar lines went away. While the neighborhood did hit a rough patch for a while, eventually developers came back.

They brought new

For walkability and distinctive architecture in the West End, consider making a move to The Westlight. This newer construction, 10-story building is in a prime location, offering up easy access to Georgetown, Dupont Circle and the Downtown area.

It may be one of the ritziest buildings in the West End today, but The Columbia Condos boasts a much different beginning. The stylish condo development actually began as a hospital and is tied to several famous names.

Constructed around the early 1900s, for years the property was known as The Columbia Hospital for Women. Hundreds of thousands of people were born at Columbia Hospital in its time, including jazz great Duke Ellington, former First Daughter Julie Nixon Eisenhower, actress Katherine Heigl and former Vice President Al Gore.

In fact, for generations the hospital was considered a top site for women’s and infant’s health. It was one of the very first maternity hospitals with a premature nursery and it provided classes for expectant
