Loudoun County

Share by Email
Loudoun County has been one of the fastest growing areas in the DC region over the past decade. This growth has led to higher rents and price points in the County’s housing market. While Loudoun County remains one of the most affluent jurisdictions in the Country with a median household income exceeding $130,000, many families in the County are feeling the effects of the rising cost of housing. This is especially true for renter households. About 38% of all renter household in Loudoun County paid 30% or more of their income on housing related expenses in 2019. At $1,788, the median gross rent in the County has climbed more than $120 in just 3 years. To address the affordability challenges the County has prioritized housing in their recently adopted Comprehensive Plan and is developing an Unmet Housing needs Strategic Plan. The County is also utilizing programs and policies like inclusionary zoning and a housing trust fund to provide a wider range of housing options for County residents all along the income spectrum.
