What this Price Will Get You in 4 Areas of Alexandria

As a buyer, there are many ways to approach the search for a new home. You can narrow it down by neighborhood or zip code, by specific features such as proximity to a Metro or number of bedrooms, or, if you’ve met with a lender and have a good idea of what you’ll be able to afford, you can search by price point.

If you go by the last option, you’ll often find yourself surprised at how widely the style of homes and amenities range just within Alexandria. The prices of homes in different parts of the area vary as much as the neighborhoods themselves, so we thought a comparison of what a certain price point will get you in four different parts of Alexandria would be worthwhile.
