Great chart Brian.  Arlington is an odd bird.  It seems to be different than the rest of the area, but recently perhaps not so substantially.

The activity in  <a href=>self storage Virginia </a>  is experiencing is steady, one indication that the Virginia real estate market is getting stronger.  Does this show Virginia moving out of the real estate downturn?  Too soon to tell.  It may not signal the end but as Winston Churchill once said, “Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”
