Washington real estate mixed in 2010

Although the local housing market was one of the best performers in the nation during 2010, sales volume was still down from 2009 in most jurisdictions. Prices recorded gains in much of the area, especially Prince William County, which was hit early—and severely—by foreclosures. Maryland counties, especially Prince George’s, felt the downturn later and are slower to recover.
