    Will Austin has managed several of my properties for 7 years and I have absolutely no complaints. While others I know have experienced poor tenants at some point in time, I can thankfully say this has not been my experience thanks to Will and his team’s ability to select high quality tenants. Recently, I sold two of my rental properties with Will and I was even more impressed with his knowledge of the market, candor, ability to quickly find the right buyers and the ease of the entire process. While selling the first property, Will and his team made the process so easy that at one point I actually thought there was an issue because it was going “too smoothly.” Whether you are looking for property management or to sell, you cannot go wrong with Will and his team. I would give six stars if it was an option.

    We have found the best property management company to care for our condo. This is not our first time using a management company for our rentals. However, it is our first time we experienced the best service with RentSimple. Will, Tony and Abby are phenomenal. They are very professional, responsive and quick to answer any questions we have. We are super happy to find such a great company to work with. Looking forward to a long term business relationship with RentSimple. Thank you so much for being so amazing!

    Bottom line up front: I would use RentSimple’s services again and I would recommend their services to those most loved in my life. From 2012 to 2021 my wife and I used RentSimple as the property management company for our home in Prince William County. BOOM! Mic drop. Not enough? Wait, there’s more. I can say that Will Austin and his team treated us very well over the last 9 years. They took great care in putting tenants in our home and even did the hard work of ensuring the home was looked after and maintained during our relationship. They even assisted us in ways that I didn’t expect. And, the value of their service was great. We didn’t pay an arm, leg, family cow, or first born for their services. Many stars to RentSimple!

    We Know Herndon

    Herndon is well established town in Northern Virginia located in the western portion of Fairfax County, just a few minutes from Dulles Airport. Herndon is a one of the oldest incorporated towns in Northern Virginia and is historic main street community that was established in 1879. But Herndon does not rely on its charming history alone, it currently has plans to completely redevelop its downtown area to a mixed use project with 273 apartments and approximately 17,000 square feet of retail space; a 16,265-square feet Arts Center; and a 726-space parking garage. This Project begun in late 2021 and you can see the Architectural Plans here.

    Located just minutes away from Dulles Airport, Herndon is one of the oldest incorporated towns in Northern Virginia. This quaint town is part of the Dulles Technology Corridor, home to many well-known defense and technology centers, including Exelis, Amazon, Northrup Grumman, and Boeing. 

    Once a major rail stop, Herndon has maintained its character and charm, with boutique shops and numerous restaurants. The Herndon Visitors Center, located in the historic train depot, is open every day.

    Location of Herndon

    Herndon is located in Fairfax County and is within the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Area, being just 22 miles from downtown D.C. 

    Geographically, Herndon is a small town, having a total area of 4.2 square miles. Just over two acres of land in Herndon are technically located in Loudoun County.

     

    Population and Demographics

    The population of Herndon is 24,532, per the 2022 United States Census. It is the 23rd largest city in Virginia. The number of Herndon residents is growing at a rate of 0.44% annually, and its population has increased by 7.01% since the most recent census. Herndon has a population density of 5,814 people per square mile.

    The average household income in Herndon is $131,085, and the median age of the town’s residents is 35.6 years.

    Area History

    In 1688, King Charles II of England granted five million acres, known as the Northern Neck, to Thomas Culpeper. A small portion of this immense grant became the land on which Herndon is located. 

    The coming of the railroad in the 1850s spurred Herndon’s development. The village needed a name in order to establish a post office at the new railroad depot, built in 1857. According to legend, a survivor of the wreck of the S.S. Central America was present at a town meeting and recounted the heroism of the ship’s commander, William Lewis Herndon, who had gone down with the ship. The impressed group decided that the new village would be named for Commander Herndon.  

    Herndon was incorporated in 1879. The railroad defined the town, with local dairy farms shipping their milk daily to Washington for processing and distribution. The railroad also transported city dwellers looking for respite in the countryside, with several spacious summer houses appearing in Herndon.  

    In March of 1917, a devastating fire destroyed much of Herndon’s downtown, including 16 businesses and two homes. The downtown was quickly rebuilt with structures made of brick instead of wood. 

    With the advent of cars, trucks, and better roads, the railroad became less of a necessity for Herndon farmers and residents. The last big job for the railway was hauling sand to be used in the concrete mix for the runways at Washington Dulles International Airport. The last train left the Herndon Depot in August 1968.

    Education

    Herndon is located within the Fairfax County Public Schools district.

    Public schools serving students within the Herndon town limits are: 

    • Clearview Elementary School
    • Dranesville Elementary School
    • Herndon Elementary School
    • Hutchison Elementary School
    • Herndon Middle School
    • Herndon High School

    Private school options include Temple Baptist, St Joseph’s Elementary, and several Montessori schools.

     

    Things to Do

    Northern Virginia is full of interesting things to see and do for both visitors and locals. 

    Shenandoah National Park in the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains is just a two-hour drive from Herndon. Visitors can go camping, sightseeing, fishing, hiking, and horseback riding. The park also includes over one hundred miles of the Appalachian Trail.

    The Udvar-Hazy Center is an annex of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. Among the thousands of artifacts visitors can see is the space shuttle Discovery and a NASA Pathfinder, which is a solar-powered aircraft. In addition, there is an observation tower with unobstructed views of Washington Dulles International Airport, which is right next to the museum. 

    Frying Pan Farm Park has a variety of attractions of both a historic and recreational nature. One of the park’s attractions is Kidwell Farm, a working demonstration farm. It recreates a 1930s farm and still has many animals, including cows and horses. The park also hosts many equestrian events throughout the year at the Activities Center, featuring an indoor riding arena and two outside rings.

    Home Prices and Trends

    The median sales price of a home in Herndon is $621,500.

    Is Herndon the Best Place For You?

    Herndon may be the best place for you and your family if:

    You like having housing options: There are many options as far as where to live in Herndon (apartments, townhomes, single-family homes), and you can have a good-sized yard if that’s important to you. The further you get outside of town, the more house and land you’ll get for your dollar. 

    You want to live in a kid-friendly community: There are playgrounds and parks everywhere in Herndon. Kids love walking or riding their bikes to a local playground or going on a nature walk with family in one of the area’s many parks. Herndon Community Center also offers many reasonably priced classes that kids can enjoy.

    You enjoy activities: There are plenty of convenient shopping centers and restaurants to choose from in Herndon. From farmer’s markets and festivals to outdoor movies, concerts, and parades, there is almost always something happening in the community.

    Herndon also is a great place to live and own rental property due to its diverse housing options. All varieties of property ownership are available to Landlords from affordable townhouses, to higher end single family homes. The lasting effects of the pandemic has made rental prices increase drastically over the last few years and Herndon has been a beneficiary of these increases. We believe that with the mainstream viability of remote and hybrid work, Herndon will be a perfect place to own rental property over the long term!
