Buy a Home or Find a Date for Saturday Night!

Homebuyers should carefully consider and research different neighborhoods and select those that they prefer before setting out to find the right home.  

Saturday Night dateMany factors are weighed in choosing the right neighborhood for your lifestyle, including the school system, commuting time, parks, pricing, etc.  Do you want to be close to public transportation? Close to shopping? Do you love the nightlife? Do you want to live around people in your age group? Are you married? Single? Looking?

 

People relocating to Northern Virginia or D.C. from other areas of the country usually require an orientation to the region and the different communities before even previewing a single home.

 

Northern Virginia homebuyers are always interested in finding out the demographics about different neighborhoods. Now with the online tool, ZipCodeStats, people can research neighborhood statistics and information by zip code, city, or county.

ZipCodeStats

I compared three Northern Virginia zip codes on several criteria. Here’s what I turned up:

Clarendon (zip code 22201):   31% of the population is married. 51.25% of the population is male, 48.75% female. 58.27% of the residents have bachelor degrees or higher education. The median age is 32 years and the median household income is $86,552.

Kingstowne (zip code 22315):   46.29% of the population is married. 48.19% male, 51.81% female population. The median age is 35 and the median household income in Kingstowne is $97,965.

McLean (zip code 22101):   54.11% of the population is married. 48.05% male, 51.95% female population. Median age of 44 years old and median household income of $150,467 in McLean.

Whitlow's on Wilson

On a serious note, ZipCodeStats also provides statistics and information on other demographics including total population, ethnicity, housing values, owner occupied housing versus rental units, and additional social and economic data.

 

 

Try it on some of the Golden Zip Codes or zip codes in your area.
