What kind of house can you get for a half million bucks in Petworth?

Take a look at this link about a guy who’s thinking about buying a house in Petworth. It is a pretty funny post where you can click on a link where he gives a video tour of the house. It looks like a nice house. Half a million bucks though that is wild. It got me thinking, which I know can be a dangerous thing. But as I’ve been interviewing prospective ward 4 councilmembers, many of them have brought up the affordable housing issue. I have to admit I haven’t given it too much thought as I already live here. So I’m just wondering: number one is there still affordable housing left in Petworth and number two aren’t we supposed to be happy when property values increase?
