Hi Scott,

I would have answered your question just as Danilo did, very good Danilo! But there is so much more that one needs to consider when buying a home. No. VA is very family friendly meaning our tax dollars really do go into schools! Some counties have trailers & large classes & some counties limit their class sizes forcing them to built another school when sizes exceed their limits. Each county has their own web site which are filled with a wealth of information. You can search, everything from commute time, schools stats, crime, public transporation, health care, activities etc.

My wed site, http://www.dana.findnorthernVAhomes.com has all that information on it & can assist you, Also please contact me directly @ DanaWright@mris.com 703-405-8302 & I'll be happy to answer any questions & help you find your next home.

Welcome to Virginia you'll love it here!

Hello Scott,

Taxes in Virginia vary depending on which county you reside in. Virginia is actually a Commonwealth meaning that more power is given to the individual counties versus a typical State in the U.S. where the state creates uniform tax rates and laws across the board.

For example...

Loudoun County currently has a residential property tax rate of $1.235 per $100 assessed value. You can find the list of property tax and other tax rates for Loudoun County here- http://www.loudoun.gov/index.aspx?nid=1911

Fairfax County is currently at $1.075 per $100 assessed - http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/dta/tax_rates.htm

Prince William County is currently at $1.2859 per $100 assessed - http://www.pwcgov.org/government/dept/finance/Pages/Real-Est…

Note: I say "currently" because the tax rates changes yearly and it can go up or down. And certain "Districts" within each county have additional real estate and other taxes. A "District" refers to an incorporated city within the county (i.e. Leesburg in Loudoun County, Falls Church City in Fairfax County, etc.)

You clicked Ashburn, VA as your area - are you looking specifically at Ashburn, Loudoun County or are you considering other towns/counties in the area?

What other questions may I answer for you?
