Winchester, Va. -- less than two hours from D.C.-- is the home of country music superstar Patsy Cline. It's also the setting of "Homeplace: A Southern Town, a Country Legend, and the Last Days of a Mountaintop Honky-Tonk."
Home values are steadily rising in D.C., especially in emerging neighborhoods like Petworth, Bloomingdale and Columbia Heights. The city’s hot real estate market has brought with it an influx of house flippers, or developers who buy homes, fix them up, then re-sell them for a quick profit. Too often, though, the renovations mask illegal or unsafe construction hidden beneath. We explore D.C.’s thriving market for renovated homes and the city’s efforts to regulate it.
