About New Homes in Alexandria, Va - Townhomes, Condominiums and Builders in Alexandria, Virginia
Alexandria New Home
Alexandria, Virginia has always been a great place to invest in housing. From 225 year old colonial townhomes in Old Town to the eclectic neighborhoods of Rosemont and Del Ray including new homes in Cameron Station, real estate appreciation in Alexandria is one of the strongest in the Washington metropolitan area. New single family homes, townhomes and condominiums in Old Town Alexandria are a rarity. Built from time to time pending availability of infill sites, they usually command lofty premiums. Despite the higher cost of living in Old Town, the reminiscence of 18th century colonial architecture with its boutiques, cafes and Potomac River views, makes this location a residential favorite. Best of all, it is located just a few miles south of Washington D.C.
