Remember the recession? The economic collapse of 2009, caused by rapidly deflating housing prices? Since that time, housing prices have yet to stabilize — except in the D.C. area. Yay us.


If you needed more proof that the Beltway is completely insulated from the rest of the United States, ponder this: While the rest of America saw housing prices fall by 4.5 percent compared to last year, Washington-area housing prices rose 1.3 percent.
