How much would you pay for a single family home at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC?  Hint – it is not on the market.  This large home has over 100 rooms on 18 acres, 16 family-guest rooms, three kitchens  – one perfect for a professional chef, three elevators, 28 fireplaces, and an underground bunker.  Oh, and of course, this home has never been sold since it was built over 200 years ago, but the residents come and go, generally every four to eight years.

Of course, it is the White House.  Like other homes in the metro area, the White House reflects the changes in the housing market. According to Zillow, 1600 Pennsylvania Avedropped in value by 5.1 percent—from $308 million to $292.5 million in 2009 and by 7.2 percent in 2008.
