    Since when are area prices even declining? The website says there's a ~51% risk of a decline, but my guess is that the decline would be led by a large decline in the outer suburbs (you heard me, Loudoun and Prince William), and a smaller increase in the inner burbs and DC proper.

    The SmartMoney map only seemed to be stating that there was about a 50% chance of decline in the near term, not predicting how much it might be. The 1-year and 5-year price changes they list for various cites were the observed price changes over the *past* year and 5 years.
