Brian ... I like your Norther VA housing market report here with emphasis on what homes over $1 million, a bit down from June as to be expected. I wonder whether homes in that expensive range at VA will pick up again in September and October.

Brian, that's a lot of homes over a million.  Makes me wonder how many we have available in our area.
