About Fairfax County

Fairfax County was formed in 1742. The once rural and agricultural county began to become increasingly suburban after World War II. With Fairfax's close proximity to Washington, DC the county benefited from a post-war economy driven by the Federal Government.

From the 1960's and through today, large businesses and corporations continue to settle in Fairfax County and the 1969 opening of Tysons Corner Center spurred the development of Tysons Corner as the county's economic engine. The technology boom and a steady government-driven economy also created rapid population growth. The thriving economy has made Fairfax County one of the wealthiest counties in the nation. 

The growth of business spread from Tysons Corner in all directions and was a primary factor in the creations of the Dulles Technology Corridor from Tysons and through Reston and Herndon out to Dulles International Airport. Today there is also a Beltway Corridor, an I-66 Corridor and a Rt. 28 Corridor. 

The county is divided into nine supervisor districts: Braddock, Dranesville, Hunter Mill, Lee, Mason, Mount Vernon, Providence, Springfield, and Sully. There is also a Chairman elected by the county at-large.

Fairfax VA has a wide variety of real estate to choose from with condos, coops, duplexes, high rise, mid rise, garden style, town houses, row houses, detached homes, patio homes, executive estates, equestrian estates, mcmansions, farmettes and working farms. With most of the inside the beltway properties built prior to 1970 we have traditional colonials, salt boxes, ramblers, ranchers, split levels, split foyers and cape cods closer-in to Washington DC. The further out you explore for your new home the more modern the architectural designs, styles and floor plans and (typically) the newer the real estate properties.

Whenever you consider a real estate sale or real estate purchase you should familiarize yourself with the local real estate market. Of course you should be able to count on an experience real estate professional for advice and market trends. Are we in a Buyer's Market or a Seller's Market? What about the real estate boom of 2000-2005 or the Northern VA Real Estate Bubble that burst in 2006-2007? Does the market really matter? Are there always opportunities in every real estate market? As an experience real estate agent I would say "definitely YES!" As we are about to enter 2008, there is a lot of good real estate for sale in Fairfax County Virginia including: residential homes for sale, new home construction, investment property and even some raw land and lots for sale. The residential resale homes market has been very stable in the more affluent Fairfax VA communities. Short Sales, Pre-Foreclosures and Foreclosures have been more concentrated in lower valued single family, town home and condo neighborhoods.
