Guess Who’s One: The Most Popular Post

To celebrate its one year anniversary, the Georgetown Metropolitan is counting down its most popular posts. Today the most popular post, by a long shot: JFK House For Sale.

It’s a bit ironic that this is the most popular post from last year because it was one that took nearly the least amount of effort to write. From walking by, GM had noticed that the house was for sale, knew its history and its current tenant, and one Sunday night couldn’t think of anything else to write about. It goes to show that anytime you put the words JFK and Georgetown together, you’re going to get people interested.

The post was so popular because Politico picked it up (via Citypaper). More titillating was the fact that the house came under contract the exact same day. GM started to wonder whether he had something to do with closing the deal. He got in touch with agent Nancy Taylor Bubes to verify whether his post inspired some Kennedy-lover to jump at the chance for a piece of JFK-lore.

Turns out the deal was pretty much done already. Oh well.

JFK’s first house in Georgetown is currently for sale. From 1947 to 1949, then Congressman John Kennedy lived at 1528 31st. St. with his sister Eunice Kennedy.

Most recently it has been the home of Republican Whip Roy Blunt. He has announced that he’s running for Senate in Missouri next year, so perhaps this sale is part of that effort. It is listed for $1.595 million by neighbor Nancy Taylor Bubes of Washington Fine Properties.

Update: It looks like the house is under contract and has been pulled from Redfin. It’s still here on WFP’s website though. Behold the power of the Georgetown Metropolitan to move real estate.
