NPR treks out to Prince William County to follow a real estate agent and his client as they shop around. Home sales have been up for the last six months, according to the story. “It’s a buyers market, but it’s a competitive buyers market. Good properties—-they come into the market and they last only a couple of days and then they’re gone,” according to the agent.  And the regional expert NPR called in says “Maybe we’ve seen the bottom, or maybe we’re seeing the bottom.” Las Vegas, Miami, Sacramento, San Diego are experiencing similar upticks.
