It’s no secret that the DMV real estate market is absolutely bonkers. Homes that might go for $400,000 in other big cities can sometimes reach almost double that figure here. So when it comes to highest-selling real estate lists, DC has some of the best properties to ogle in the nation. Here are the 10 most expensive houses sold in the greater Washington area last year. Warning: Your bank account may deplete just by looking at them.
