Nine of the top-25 housing markets are in Virginia

Nine Virginia cities — all in Northern Virginia — are among the top 25 housing markets in the country according to Bloomberg Businessweek. In “The Obama Effect,” it looked at which parts of the country have seen the greatest value increase since Obama took office. Virginia was by far the most-represented state on the list.

Here’s what made the list:

  • Leesburg (#24 best housing market since 2009)
  • Sterling (19)
  • McLean (13)
  • Chantilly (11)
  • Reston (9)
  • Ashburn (8)
  • Herndon (6)
  • Vienna (5)
  • Burke (4)

(No Virginia city made the list of 25 worst markets since 2009 — Florida pretty much owns that.)
