David Hendrick at the DP wrote a good article for this past Sunday’s paper regarding the slowing Central VA market. He takes a reasonable tact that describes the market rather than attempt to instill fear about the market – another reason why I like reading his stuff in the DP.

Experts gain a lot, I believe, by giving away bits of their expertise in this format. It creates a new customer base, it gives something of value to the community, and it is bound to help forge ties between unlikely groups of people, which is always great.
