We speak to Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) as he prepares to leave office after four years at the helm.
With home values rising, the latest trend among D.C.’s real estate developers is house flipping: buying “fixer-uppers,” renovating them and reselling them for a quick profit. After years of flipping homes in the District, a Northern Virginia couple has agreed to an unprecedented $1.3 million settlement with D.C. after an investigation found that their renovation work skirted the law and put homeowners at risk. Kojo discusses the case with WAMU 88.5’s Martin Austermuhle, who reported on the couple last year, and Jimmy Rock, a D.C. prosecutor who helped resolve the case.
