  Here in the close-in Northern Virginia market, (which is composed of Fairfax & Arlington Counties and Alexandria, Fairfax & Falls Church Cities), the lack of quality inventory is THE story now.  This is particularly true in the $500K-$300K and <$300K price ranges, where available inventory is d...
~ January 2012 ~   The Shirlington real estate may have limped in with just 9 condos going to settlement in January, which was below the 13 units that sold in January 2011, though it is historically a slow month following the holidays.  What does stand out is the number of units with ratified off...
