image The May 2012 Top Turnaround Town Report from Move.com’s Realtor.com includes one quasi-Virginia location: Washington, D.C., which makes its first appearance on the list since Q1 of 2011.

Sayeth the report: “For the first quarter of 2012, list prices were up 13.18% on a year-over-year quarterly basis, ranking the D.C. market in the top 10 Realtor.com MSAs in terms of price increases.”

Realtor.com also recommends the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival (“a month-long celebration of spring in Washington, D.C. and the friendship of the United States and Japan”) and points out that Washington is “dedicated to preserving the nation’s history with presidential monuments and war memorials.”
