As a former resident of the Atlanta area, housing prices (purchase & rentals) in Virginia are higher as compared to ATL.
Location plays a role in housing prices in both ATL & Virginia, however generally speaking you are able to purchase larger homes for less in ATL. It relates to what the market will bear in both areas.
All other costs are about the same. I found that are car insurance here is much less than ATL.
I will be glad to assist you with any further questions.

Typically you will find Loudoun County to be more expensive than most in the area. You need to look further west or south to find a lower cost of living, however that savings is typically offset by the increased travel time to work. I'd be happy to answer any other questions you have, just send me an email at Mike@LoCoMusings.com.
