Actually the house in question was a multiple family home with 3 separate
homes in one. We found a multiple family for whom the house was a good fit.
We did have 5 houses come up for sale all at once at one point a couple
years ago and they all did eventually sell, the previously mentioned one
sold last.

Rob, you were having problems a few years ago with houses that had been
"over-built" (my term) with lot of expensive features that were not common
in your area so the prices were too high to sell them. They were being
rented.

Did that resolve itself?

And in DC we sell at market rates very quickly. 3 hours is the record using
Craig's List.

We also keep a list of interested people and email them as soon as a unit
becomes available but the prices are very high now and I don't think the
people on the list expected the prices.
