    Savopoulos Mansion Up For Sale

    The D.C. mansion where three members of the Savopoulos family and their housekeeper were killed is up for sale. News4's Derrick Ward reports. (Published Sunday, Nov. 1, 2015)

    The mansion where three family members and their housekeeper were brutally killed in Washington, D.C., is on the market for $3.25 million.

    The real estate listing describes the manor home on 3/10 of an acre in upper northwest Washington and says the house will be sold "as-is."

    It is clear there's been a fire. There's also a red crime scene seal on the door.

    Crews uncovered a grisly scene while responding to the fire on May 14. They discovered the bodies of Savvas and Amy Savopoulos, their son, Phillip, and their housekeeper, Vera Figueroa.

    Police said Daron Wint, 34, held the four victims captive for roughly 18 hours on May 13 and 14 inside their multimillion-dollar mansion. Wint was allegedly paid a $40,000 ransom, then killed the family and Figueroa before setting the house on fire, authorities said. Wint's attorney, who was later fired, said he believed his client had been set up.

    The case is still winding through the courts and the investigation continues. The marketplace, however, has gotten ahead of investigators.

    The house itself is still a focal point in the affluent upper-northwest neighborhood. When houses with a history go on the market, they're often referred to as "stigmatized" properties.

    D.C. law says if a potential buyer asks if anyone died in that home, the realtor has to be truthful. But realtors don't have to volunteer the information if they're not asked.

    The five-bedroom, seven-bath home is being sold for $3,250,000. According to a "Zestimate" on Zillow.com, the mansion is worth over $5.5 million.

    The real estate website says its Zestimate is based on public and user-submitted data, and also takes into "account special features, location and market conditions."
