How interesting Heather. It is a small world sometimes. I love the Southwest in many ways -- I'm just outside Albuquerque but heading back to the DC area in the next year and looking to locate somewhere around the Reston area. My son and future daughter-in-law just bought a house in Warrenton and they really like the area and I'm looking forward to seeing it.

My only issue with Warrenton is just too far from DC -- I'm not willing to move out 40 miles -- I'm a bit more of a city girl and prefer to be closer to work and amenities. But if I was a young couple or married with kids I would think it would be a very nice place and that seems to be the case from several reports I've read.

And even 40 miles out in Warrenton, an older house is $300K whereas my brand new, 2200 sq ft., semi-custom home on 1/4 acre with beautiful mountain views just north of Albuquerque was $240K. Real estate issues are really the main drawback for the entire DC Metro area. The prices, even in the so-called buyer's market are just frankly outrageous IMNSHO. But I've lived in the area 3 times now and moving back for a 4th so I must like it! :-)
