As per Bureau of Labor Statistics the unemployment rates(data from Nov. 2009) in the Virginia rate is signification lower than the rest of the country. Washington-Arlington-Alexandria, DC-VA-MD-WV Metropolitan Statistical Area where the unemployment rate is 6.1 and overall Virginia unemployment rate is at 6.9 (Dec 2009).

The numbers show the strong local economy. With the $8000 first time home buyer tax credit / $6500 for existing home buyer has created once again a multiple bid housing market for our area.

Are you still on fence about purchasing your home?

Ritu- Love your name.  My wife's name is Satu...

Jobs are the key! 

Housing is still hurting and the economy won't rise until housing is settled. Housing won't be settled with terrible underemployment. Go Jobs Go!

Here is a 2012 update on UNemployment and UNDERemployment:

I hope your N-VA market is seeing some turnaround. We're not feeling the "dropping" unemployment rate yet here in Oregon.
