Haus Schwatz: Cati's DC Real Estate


Spanish Style The DC Way

Spanish-style home in DC's Shepherd Park neighborhoodSurely, this type of picture overload must be a familiar scenario for many of you agents.

I look at houses all the time, every day. And I take photos of them all the time. So, it's no wonder that the iPhoto library where those from my cell phone get automatically uploaded is bursting. There are thousands of house pictures. Literally.

Since this is DC, most of them were — by American standards — old houses. But there weren't only boxy red brick colonials (one of the main staples of DC real estate), but many other distinct styles that were the last cry in their day: Tudors, Georgians, Arts & Crafts-type bungalows or Italianate villas.

Suggestions on what should be next?
