Do people actually read D outside of a supermarket checkout line or a doctor's office?

I'm confused by your message. There are a number of new homes on this list:

#2 Gerald Ford- built 2006
#3 John Muse- built 2001
#15 Malone Mitchell - built 2010 (according to DCAD, but in reality it was just completed in Fall 2012- gorgeous home!)
#18 Doug Barnes - built 2005

That is just out of the top 20 houses and doesn't include the half dozen others that are relatively new (1990's) that the Cubans, Troutts, etc live in.

New homes can be as beautiful as the graceful older ones when they are built in a classic architectural style (classic absolutely includes modern, not the faux turret *** Tudor / Austin Stone McMansion "architecture") and on an appropriate sized lot for the footprint of the home.

We all live in USED houses and drive USED cars. Once they are built and sold they are no longer new.

At least a new home's value doesn't plummet 40% the second your movers cross the threshold
