That's not quite what this Bloomberg article says, but that's the gist of it.
The wealthiest presidential administration in modern history has Washington’s high-end real estate brokers busy courting prospective clients and readying homes for a new audience of buyers. Advance teams for Trump cabinet nominees and senior officials are already fanning out across the region, doing the legwork for their bosses, surveying kitchens, bathrooms and possible security configurations for new residences.
And in a city known for its political divides, partisan boundaries are cast aside.
“Hey, I was a Hillary person,” said Tom Daley, associate broker at TTR Sotheby’s International Realty in Georgetown. “But from a real estate perspective: Thank you very much. Come in folks. Let’s get you a nice new house.”
Even in the belly of the beast, that sort of welcoming pragmatism makes sense:
Those who are buying high-end houses are entering a tepid market. In the third quarter, the average sale price of a Washington luxury home, defined as the priciest 5 percent of sales, fell 0.9 percent from a year earlier to $2.38 million, according to brokerage Redfin. Prices in the rest of the market were up 5.1 percent to an average of $582,000.
