The slowing (non-Manhattan) housing market is hitting America where it hurts?the bank accounts of our public servants. Newsday's real estate blog reports that a Queens congressman just pricechopped his Jamaica Estates home from $1.3 million to $1.25 million (right), and Huntington representative Steve Israel had to pull his house off the market after not finding a buyer. "We both commiserate on the floor of the House that we couldn’t sell our houses," he said. Commiserating ... on our dime?! [Real LI via The Real Deal]
