A recent study has concluded that 39% of buyers prefer to rent out their last residence rather than sell it when purchasing their next home.

The study cites that many homeowners were able to refinance and “locked in a very low mortgage rate in recent years. That low rate, combined with a strong rental market, means they can charge more in rent than they pay in mortgage each month, so they are going for it.”

The academy would serve as a performing arts magnet school for the county.

School board members voted to approve the program as one of their action items by a 7 to 2 vote, with Chairman Eric Hornberger (Ashburn) and Brenda Sheridan (Sterling) dissenting.
