Here’s another thing I heard about the transition from Margot Wilson, of Arnold, Bradley, Sargent, Davy, & Chew, Inc.

“The Republicans tend to frankly live more in the suburbs. A lot of the Bush/Cheney people were living in McLean—-whereas, generally, I would say the democrats tend to live more in-town. You know, neighborhoods like Cleveland Park, Woodley, Wesley Heights, Forest Hills.”

But, here’s why it won’t make much of a difference for the next few months…

Generally speaking, there will be a lot of people coming in town. But, not everyone will be coming to look for something right away. A lot of times people with families will wait until the end of the school year to uproot their families. There will be an immediate crunch of sort of temporary housing.
