Homes for sale in Fairfax, Virginia, vary widely, from grand homes with rich histories to a brisk foreclosure market. You’ll find houses in long-established neighborhoods and in areas on the verge of renewal. There are lovely walkable neighborhoods with breathtaking landscaping as well as sweet starter homes for those who are new to the market. All are a short hop from the nation’s capital and everything it has to offer. Significant square footage is offered, too, with many 4-bedroom homes listed.

Fairfax is a scant 16 miles from Washington, D.C., meaning an easy commute to work or all of the cultural opportunities available in the nation’s capital. The median income in the area is close to six figures, and the schools are highly rated. Forbes magazine listed Fairfax in the top three on their "Places to Live Well" list in 2009, noting strong growth in the small business sector that ensures community resilience even when the overall economy is slow. The Neighborhood Renaissance program in Fairfax was designed to help sort out the intricacies of making upgrades and repairs to properties. The program acts as a liaison between homeowners and licensing and zoning boards. As a result, your home can change as your life progresses, so your investment will have lasting value.

With seven locations on the National Register of Historic Places, Fairfax offers opportunities to learn U.S. history at every turn. Many local sites figured heavily in the Civil War, and the records kept from the time of the village’s founding promise endless discoveries. An annual Civil War reenactment draws scholars and participants from around the country and the world; performing on the actual sites brings the past to life. Fairfax is a small city with just over 22,000 people, according to the last recorded census. It’s a county seat with the feel of a small town, but because it’s located near Washington, D.C., and is considered part of the D.C. Metro area, there is easy access to public transportation by both bus and train. Go to work or enjoy the nation’s best museums and other attractions, then come home to local events like National Trails Day, the Fall for the Book Festival, the Irish Festival, or the Chocolate Lover’s Festival. When you consider all the things that Fairfax has working in its favor, you’ll see why you can’t go wrong when you buy a home here.
