Prince William County Makes National News

Unfortunately, not in a good way; in fact, if ever there was a time ripe for voters to throw the bums out, this election season is the year.

You see, contrary to what folks of a certain political persuasion (i.e., RID -- Republicans In Denial) want everyone to believe this fall, GOP immigrant bashing in Prince William County directly ushered the huge real estate meltdown that was disproportionate to other areas in the region; and indeed, even national media has finally taken notice.

CBS writes:

Manassas...only 35 miles from DC and...served by regional rail...a commuter's haven [has] almost 3,000 houses currently on the market and at least 60 percent of them are foreclosures.

Nothing to see behind those foreclosure signs; move on.

Susan Jacobs is a real estate agent in Manassas County, Virginia with more than 20 years experience.

Most of the houses she's showing these days belong to banks - foreclosure properties on the market for bargain basement prices.

She shows a large house that she plans to put on the market for somewhere between $60,000 and $70,000.

The price of that same house a few years ago?

"In '05 or '06 this property could have sold for $300 [thousand]," Jacobs

Now how is that quality of life working out, Scottie, Corey and Jackson, the howler's favoritest three amigos??

With the universal law of the third time being the charm, Jeanette Rishell has happily informed Howling Latina that she'll be doing duty again this year against Jackson Miller -- only this time she's got names and data showing that a win is definitely in the cards.

Jeanette is in the 50th District (Jackson Miller). John Bell of South Riding is running against Bob Marshall.
My bad; they're so alike, it's hard to tell the difference.
I lived in South Riding for a very brief time; nice community.
Interesting post! Would you like a Link Exchange with our new blog COMMON CENTS where we blog about the issues of the day??
