[This market recap on the Northern Virginia from MLS data is compiled by Butch Hicks, a former president of RAC (Relocation Appraisers and Consultants) (that I am a member of), a friend and an experienced appraiser in Northern Virginia. The results of his efforts are published on his web site as a series of charts, each with a brief summary. (As a kid growing up in the Washing DC area, I was barraged by "Virginia is for Lovers" tourism ads, and of course "DC is for US, by George")] -Jonathan Miller
