The introduction of the Silver Line Metro stations and the redevelopment of Tysons Corner into a more walkable community has led to some very high-end new condos and apartments in the area. The new transit options and pedestrian-friendly designs benefit older condos in the community, too, which offer the added benefit of more affordable prices in expensive Fairfax County. The average sales price in September in Fairfax County was $561,056, according to the Northern Virginia Association of Realtors.

For example, the condo at 1517 Lincoln Way, #104, in the Tysons Corner area of McLean, is priced at $374,900. The monthly condo fee is $175 and annual property taxes are $3,920. The unit comes with two assigned parking spaces.

Built in 1988, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo is a first-floor unit with two patios. The 1,050-square-foot condo has been renovated with hardwood floors, new kitchen cabinets, stainless-steel appliances, recessed lighting and fresh paint.

The main attraction is the location within walking distance of a Metro station, a grocery store, shops and restaurants. The condo community has a clubhouse, a fitness center and a swimming pool.

Assigned schools are Spring Hill Elementary, Longfellow Middle and McLean High, all rated above-average by based on test scores.
