Recently, a study was done, that determined the 10 best counties to live in America.  Loudoun County finished with a resounding #1 ranking.  It’s important to understand the parameters with which this ranking was established.  Six factors were implemented when comparing the various counties across the United States.  Four of the factors used were the average median household income, median rent, median home price and high school graduation rate.  The higher the percentage achieved in each of those four categories, the better the rating would be.  The remaining two factors used in determining the best counties to live in, were based on the local unemployment rate, as well as the percentage of families living below the poverty line.  With these two categories, the objective was to achieve the lowest possible percentage.  Loudoun County hit the mark in all categories.  It was number one in median household income, which means that families can afford to reside in this affluent county.  It was also number one in median rent, which means people are willing to pay the higher rent prices to live within Loudoun County.  Most important, it had the fourth lowest unemployment rate across the country.  Only 2.5% of families were below the poverty line, and over 93% of children graduate from high schools in Loudoun.

This study brings huge advantages to all families living in Loudoun County, and especially in Leesburg, VA.  Being number one means that real estate is a hot commodity!  With that said, the bar is set very high as to what homeowners expect when they purchase their next home.  It can’t be stressed enough, that the demand is for updated kitchens and bathrooms.  The take away from this, is that marble and granite countertops are expected not only in kitchens, but the same applies to vanities in all bathrooms.  Leesburg, and its surrounding neighbors, have numerous communities in need of a facelift.  Fairfax Marble and Granite and United Granite are here to make that transition easy.  Come visit our showroom, and then walk through our warehouse of slabs.  One of our experts will assist you with your design decisions, and have your home updated in no time.
