With the goal of distinguishing Loudoun County as more than just a suburb of Washington D.C. the county planners are working to integrate the mixed-use concept into the county plans.  Mixed-use development is an increasingly popular style that combines single family homes, townhomes and apartment style units that integrate into a downtown area with a commercial center full of shopping, eateries and office space providing a more urban like environment.  Loudoun Station and One Loudoun are examples
of this style.

According to the Dulles Area Association of Realtors (DARR) home prices in Loudoun County have risen an
average of 3.3% since last year.  Though this area has gotten use to larger annual increases, it is typical for home
prices to only outpace inflation by a few percentage points and inflation has been reported to be 1.7% for the year.

National forecasts for home prices indicate values will increase 3 - 6% annually over the next 5 years. 
Which isn't too bad considering the average savings account is earning about one tenth of 1% (.10%).

Now that the FED has stated that it will likely begin to raise interest
rates in 2015 many are concern that higher rates will mean lower home
prices since buying power will be reduced.  To some degree that is true
but exactly what happens depends a lot on the overall health of the
economy.  If people are employed and have job stability they will buy
homes.  The increased demand will subsequently increase prices as
inventories drop. It becomes a function of supply and demand.

There have been many times in recent history where the interest rate has
increased significantly with home prices following them.

Given that we are in one of the most resilient economies in the country it
is very unlikely that a slow rise of rates will have little impact on home
prices.

Have you noticed how much people talk about real estate these days?  It's probably a good bet that you have been involved in a conversation (or have heard someone talking) about the real estate market, buying or selling a home or interest rates within the past 10 days.  Ever since the house boom and then crash people can't get enough of it.  Maybe it's just me because I am tuned into it but everywhere I go I hear, "Have home prices recovered?"  "Are prices going to continue to go up?"  "What's going to happen to interest rates and how will that impact the values?"  "I want to buy a new house." etc.  The conversations goes on and on.  Sometimes I
hear a lot of good information but many times I hear misinformation.  If you want to be one of those with the good information keep an eye on my blog.  I'll keep you updated on the latest so you can be the one answering all of the question in the next conversation.
