This whole area is overinflated. Take the gov. spending out (HUGE buffer) and Tysons will be like Manassas. For those who bought 2 counties away thinking you're "saving" money, you might wanna check your math. Unless you place little value in your 3-hour daily commute, the added stress, wear/tear on car, pollution and increased accident probability. The market needs to drop another 60%....

We wouldn't be commuting. 2nd home and eventual retirement home. I know what you mean about traffic and development in the area. Our second choice is down in western North Carolina.

That's like wishing the sun won't come up tomorrow. Never gonna happen. I will say gas prices are probably having some impact on home values in the outer burbs.

If there was ever any possibility of your dream becoming a reality, it should have happened in the last 3 years.

I don't see this happening anytime in future unless this country completely converts itself into a EU nation

AFAIK, the difficult times have been eased out (or easing) and looks like this area is going to rock again with home prices etc.

PS: Though I am hoping home prices drop further so we can buy a home for living (and not for flipping)

Maybe. That is what the stock experts thought in 2001 and the economists and real estate folks said in 2006.

What recently happened will no doubt happen again. The housing market is cyclical. But for this area to drop 60% like the previous poster wished would require some pretty incredible things to happen, and if it did I doubt you'd really care about the dirt cheap houses.
