No matter where you look in the D.C. metro area, you are likely to find high home prices. The median sales price in the region rose to $526,000 in February, a 10.6 percent increase over February 2021, according to Bright MLS. Many buyers who need to cap their purchase price at $400,000 find themselves looking at townhouses and condos instead of single-family houses, especially when the priority is to live close to a Metro station.
For example, the condo at 2451 Midtown Ave. #509 in the Alexandria section of Fairfax County, Va., is priced at $375,000. The median sales price of a home was $615,000 in Fairfax County in February, according to Bright MLS. The monthly condo fee for this unit is $471 and annual property taxes are $4,022.
The condo fee includes water, trash and snow removal, a community insurance policy, and common-area maintenance. Building amenities include a swimming pool, a fitness center, a party room and concierge services. Pets are allowed in the building.
