The "booming" around Washington DC is NOT a "1%" issue - it's a libbie socialist "grow government at the expense of the private sector" issue.
Individuals with expensive homes across the country have seen their property values crater. Have you looked at Florida, and Nevada, and the like? People who bought very expensive homes (i.e., the 1% ers, to use liberals' class-warfare terminology), have lost a great deal of the value of their homes.
This is NOT a class issue - it's a BIG GOVERNMENT issue.
Demonizing the successful in this country has only one result - it leads to policies whereby ALL will have less. One need only look at the huge economic successes of socialist countries..... (crickets).
