Real Estate topics concerning Northern Virginia, D.C. and the nation.
We are talking local D.C. area here. Prices vary from community to community like they vary from market to market. This morning in the Washington Post Real Estate section there were "Ten Tips for Today's Market." If you are planning to sell, you may want to take a look at this article. For exampl...
For the last two days, the Washington Post (WP) has used prime real estate to bring us this life changing case against Baxter the pooch in Fairfax County, Virginia. Yesterday his mug shot was on the front page of the WP and today it is on the front of the "Metro" section. It is the most discussed...
The other evening I was driving home when I heard an analyst was being interviewed on a local news station about the market. Her comment was that it is a buyer's market.

Not to be too easy that we get complacent. Over the last few months, it has been concerning to me where things might ...
