Is there some magic 50 percent threshold that listing prices need to come down to in order to sell? Georgetown’s Evermay estate recently went for $25.9 million, after first being priced at $49 million. Now the D.C. Guesthouse, which has been in operation since 2003 and went on the market at this time last year for $4 million, has tumbled to $1.999 million. Which is a steal for a nine-bedroom Victorian mansion in Shaw, even if its owners only bought it for $392,000 in 1999 (that was 1999, after all).
