Take a Look Around, See What's New!

sanfranme

I'm always working on improving things here at LoCoMusings, trying to add features that I think would benefit my readers. It's been a little while since I've given a 'tour' around the site, so I thought I'd point a few things out that you may or may not have noticed here... If you look in the right sidebar, we now have some dynamic charts … [Read more...]

Holding Steady Again

Spring in Ashburn

We are still in the swing of the busiest part of the year for real estate in Loudoun County, and our median price for both single family homes and the combined condo/townhome market appears to be stable again. We saw a momentary jump up in price driven by the low inventory and high demand as the first time homebuyer tax credit was ending, but … [Read more...]

Take a Deep Breath…

Spring in Ashburn

The last time I looked at inventory levels in LoCo was on May 4th, right after the first time homebuyer tax credit ended, and found the HUGE jump in homes available for sale. Looking at what has happened since then, it appears to have leveled off a bit (and absorbed a tiny amount of the condo/townhome inventory).  Anyone that tells you they … [Read more...]

KB Home is Back in Ashburn

Martin's Chase in Ashburn

In April of 2008, I wrote a post detailing how the new home builders were bailing out of our area as the market weakened, and pointed out the KB Home community at Martin's Chase in Ashburn specifically.  We've seen builders coming back into the county over the course of the last year.  Lennar reopened in Martin's Chase last summer, and has … [Read more...]

Back to Normal Now?

Spring in Ashburn

Another byproduct of the first time homebuyer tax credit...a temporary upward blip in prices. Looks like the market has already corrected itself, huh? (Condo median price includes townhomes, too.) Cheers, Heather … [Read more...]

Dry Mill Road Closed…

timesmirror

Just a heads up that beginning today, Dry Mill Road in Leesburg will be closed from Route 9 to Woodburn Road so that Dominion Virginia Power can bury a transmission line under the road, and then fix it all back up again.  This is not great news for those of us that commute from Purcellville to Leesburg, using this beautiful back way to get … [Read more...]

LoCo Inventory Goes Rollercoaster..

Spring in Ashburn

Well, I've been really apprehensive of what our real estate market would look like in Loudoun County after the first time homebuyer tax credit expired. (which happened last Friday, so you can go ahead and exhale now) Look at what our inventory levels did in the last couple of weeks...a lot of homes on the market all of a sudden. And … [Read more...]

Not Quite Ready to Buy?

709 Pipers Brook Drive

This fantastic home is listed for rent in Purcellville, starting toward the end of June, for $2650 a month. It is in the Village Case neighborhood, just off Maple Avenue.   If you know anyone that might be interested, please forward this along to them; it's available for showing now. More photos, floorplans, and information can be found at … [Read more...]

Towers Appearing in Western LoCo

Dominion Power lines

Well, we've been watching Dominion Virginia Power do their site work across Western Loudoun since before the blizzards (which slowed progress for sure). The time has finally come for the towers to go up, to carry the transmission lines from the new substation south of Leesburg to another new substation near Purcellville. The expectation is … [Read more...]
