Loudoun County

Loudoun County Real Estate

Loudoun County (pronounced “LOUD-un”) is a county located in Northern Virginia, and is part of the Washington Metropolitan Area. As of July 2006, the county is estimated to be home to 268,817 people, a 58% increase over the 2000 figure of 169,599. That increase makes the county the fastest growing in the United States during that period. As of 2007, the town of Leesburg had been county seat for 249 of the last 250 years.

As of 2008, Loudoun County has the highest median household income in the United States at $107,207, beating neighboring Fairfax County at $105,241. The two counties have been trading places as the wealthiest county in the US for the past couple of years.

Economy

Traditionally a rural county, Loudoun’s population has grown dramatically since the 1980s. Having undergone heavy suburbanization in the past few decades, Loudoun has a full-fledged service economy. It is home to world headquarters for several Internet-related and high tech companies, including Verizon Business, Telos Corporation, and Orbital Sciences Corporation. Like Fairfax County’s Dulles Corridor, Loudoun County has economically benefited from the existence of Washington Dulles International Airport, the majority of which is located in the county along its border with Fairfax. Loudoun does retain a strong rural economy in the western part of the county. The Equine Industry has an estimated revenue of $78 Million. It is home to the Morven Park International Equestrian Center which hosts national horse trials. Loudoun has 19 wineries and over 25 active farms. Loudoun has rich soil and was in the late 1800s the fourth-largest wheat producer in the U.S.

Recent development

In recent years, Loudoun has become one of the fastest-growing counties in the nation. The once rural county now has a mecca of industry centered around Washington Dulles International Airport. $1,000,000+ homes are springing up throughout the countryside. In light of this, the county has placed many building restrictions in an attempt to retain the rural feel.
