We're not obsessed with Passive Houses, we swear. It's just that writing about the one going up in Arlington made us think to check back in on the one in Bethesda and, lo and behold, it has come down in price. It started out at $1,578,000 and now it is $1,488,000. Such a tentative first step down the price ladder, but who knows it could go for that. There are a few million dollar homes in the vicinity.
