How much would members of the Washington, D.C., elite be willing to plunk down for an 8,200-square-foot Georgian mansion in McLean, Va., with six bedrooms, eight fireplaces and “jaw-dropping views of the Potomac River”?

Well, not $18 million, as the home’s owners had originally hoped. Or $16 million, price reduction number one. Price reduction two puts the asking price at $12.98 million — which brings the estimated monthly mortgage payment down to a much more palatable $51,022. Source:
