Median Household Income
Quiet, traffic is good locally, less expensive compared to Fairfax county, good shops, the region is getting better, buying a house may be affordable with median or above median income. I was able to buy a home with $65k income. The schools are average. My daughter goes to private school. I afford private school because I have one daughter. The traffic is horrible if you have to comute to Fairfax or Washington DC and your schedule is fixed 9-5. otherwise the traffic is ok but it gets worse and worse every year because more people are moving to the area. The further you go from Washington DC, the more houses are affordable and the bad traffic you have to face. The key is to find a good job away from Washington DC metro area in order to buy a good house and maybe good schools as well
While overall, the Woodbridge area is ok, it has some great homes, apartments, but even with my income I had to live in lower cost apartments.... There is no 'affordable' middle of the road places to live. You either need to make a ton of money, or live in lower cost areas. The main issue I feel, is the cost of homes/apartments. If you have to spend a paycheck or more to afford a not great or even nice apartment, that lend little left to cover the rest of personal expenses, not to mention any disposable income.. I see the cost on living in this area only increasing. In relation to other states/ cities I've lived in.. It's astronomical. Where I lived, there were kids jumping fences, smoking pot, general loitering. I lived in a large minority (Hispanic) area, where I couldn't understand much of what was being said to me. At this point, no, I would not live here again.
This area is really nice. It is close to middle school, high school, and even college (NVCC). The area is really safe; I have never heard of crime or anything. It is also close to the mall and grocery stores.
