The DC area is known for its sports teams. The city has everything to offer, football, baseball, hockey, soccer, and basketball. In recent years the high light of the town has been the Capitols and Nationals, both making runs into the post season. Starting to make a rise in recent years are the Washington Wizards, gaining more attention and brining bigger names to the city. The Washington Wizards will be the team to watch in 2016.
With recent additions to the team and a new mentality on the court the Wizards have been able to begin to make a name for themselves in the Eastern Conference. Returning star point guard, John Wall, has been taking the team in a new direction under the leadership of head coach, Randy Whitman. They have also added stability in the locker room with the presence of veteran players like Drew Gooden and Alan Anderson. The future is also looking bright with three good rookie draft picks including, Bradley Beal, Otto Potter, and most recently Kelly Oubre.
This season will be as competitive and exciting as DC basketball has seen in years. The Wizards have taken the steps needed and should be expected to be seen deep in the post season. The Wizards will soon be the next great team of DC.

What is it about this Northern Virginian county that caused an estimate of 1,015,302 (as of the April 2008 consensus) to make this part of the country their dwelling place?
Formed in 1742 from the northern part of Prince William County, and named after Thomas Fairfax, 6th Lord Fairfax of Cameron, this county is bordered by Potomac River and friendly neighboring regions such as Arlington County, Alexandria, Falls Church, Loudoun County and Prince William County.
Studies conducted have shown that most of the adult citizens, who call Fairfax County their home, are four-year college degree holders and a good number of them have reached even higher educational attainment.
Research has also shown that, aside from being the first county in the US to achieve a median household income of six figures, Fairfax also has the second highest median household income (next to Loudoun County) among counties with 250,000 or more residents.
With those statistics in mind, potential residents can have some level of assurance that they are living among some of the best citizens the nation has to offer. It can also be a plus that they’ll be able to rub elbows with the county’s upper class society.
Aside from that, Fairfax offers people, who are considering the county as their abode, residential areas that will surely fit their unique tastes and preferences. Residential communities like Kingstowne and Burke can give the suburban comfort and security that citizens may be looking for. Meanwhile, areas like Vienna, Huntington or the inner Beltway bustle of Bailey’s Crossroads can offer the convenient accessibility and metropolitan flair required by those more accustomed to a fast-paced, urbanite lifestyle.

The federal government is driving demand for office space, according to Jones Lang LaSalle’s annual report on federal real estate procurement.
In Washington, D.C., the federal government will require more than 5 million square feet of new office space by the end of 2010. That is more than both public and private entities combined will require elsewhere in the United States.
“I’d say it would make sense for brokers to be targeting federal agencies rather than private agencies,” says Scott Homa, senior market research analyst at Jones Lang LaSalle.
