Moving and Settling In Fairfax

Fairfax, Virginia is a charming suburb located in the northern part of the state, just a short drive away from Washington D.C. and the stunning Blue Ridge Mountains. Boasting a perfect blend of suburban charm and urban accessibility, it is a great place to live, work, and raise a family, which is why many young professionals and families with children choose to relocate here. It is also ideal for relocating businesses or attending higher education, as there are over 60 colleges and universities throughout the Washington D.C. area, 11 of them with campuses in Fairfax County.

If you are considering moving here, you will find plenty of housing options to choose from, but you must take into account the city's high cost of living. More than 70 percent of Fairfax residents own their homes, even though the median cost of a housing unit is double the state value and 2.4 times the national one. Renting in Fairfax isn't too affordable either, but only about 40 percent more than the median value across Virginia and almost 60 percent higher than the US average.
