In the last century, Will Nesbitt was a leading member of a dotcom technology team. After riding the dot-com wave, Will Nesbitt decided to pursue real estate investing. Initially, Will obtained his real estate license as a means to buy and sell real estate at a discount. Soon enough he found that he enjoyed the real estate business enough that he would not be returning to a technology-based vocation.
In late 2006 Will Nesbitt purchased the office of a retiring broker at River Towers in New Alexandria. Without much fanfare or creativity, the new brokerage was named Will Nesbitt Realty LLC. The office of Nesbitt Realty was in a residential condominium in Alexandria and so we nicknamed the office Condo Alexandria, and registered a trade name to do business as Condo Alexandria.
From the location at Condo Alexandria, Will became aware of the needs of condominium owners and the unique challenges of doing business in and around condos. At the same time, Will began building a web-based hub of real estate information to provide buyers, sellers, renters and landlords an easy and user-friendly way to exchange information. With the addition of family members and experienced agents, Will Nesbitt Realty LLC became Nesbitt Realty.
While the Condo Alexandria team still works with condos all over Northern Virginia, Nesbitt Realty turned its focus to the neighborhoods we know and love best: Fort Hunt, Mount Vernon, Franconia, Arlington and Old Town Alexandria. Our office is strategically located at the boundary between Fairfax County and the City of Alexandria. We live, work and play in the same community. We like to think that positions us to serve both the urban and suburban market along the Potomac River better than many of our competitors.
Today Nesbitt Realty and Condo-Alexandria.com have one of the largest Internet footprints of any real estate brokerage in Northern Virginia. Nesbitt Realty leverages that asset to better serve clients across Northern Virginia. And while our technology is big, our brokerage is a family-based business and together with a few very experienced associates we are here to serve you. We deliver integrity driven results that our clients love.
Some companies understand the power of the Internet for real estate sales. Some companies have experienced agents ready to serve you. Nesbitt Realty has both.
Our brokerage couples experience with technology to provide our clients some of the best service in the business. Our goal at Nesbitt Realty is to provide the highest possible service, with the maximum possible competency while adhering the strictest ethical standards. While we believe these are noble goals, we pursue this strategy because we believe (and we have proven) that the Universe and the market financially reward hard work, good works and love of client.

Renting is a good way to get some firsthand experience with a neighborhood. Renting can let you sign a 1 year lease, say in a Shirlington 2 bedroom condo for example, with the option to continue, if you like the neighborhood. An advantage of this is you can test the waters, to see if you really love the features of this neighborhood or not. If you don’t like where you’re at, say for example, if the 4 bedroom, 2 story home in Lorton is not your style, you can always relocate to another place.
Pay as You Go
Many Americans live pay check to pay check. Upfront, you will have a security deposit, with a rate that depends on your credit score. If you have a good credit score, your property manager might only charge 1 months’ rent, for a security deposit. On the other hand, if you have a poor credit score, your property manager might charge 2 months’ rent, for a security deposit. After this initial fee (which can be refunded if you meet the requirements like passing the move out inspection), it’s nice to know that after a chunk of your paycheck is put into your monthly rent, there’s a good portion left for bills, necessities, and fun expenditures, like neighborhood nightlife or personal hobbies.
Short Term Commitment & Little Investment
Not sure if you want to stay in Northern Virginia, as a Washington DC commuting, GS-5? Do you have plans of living in California and seeing Napa Valley, Los Angeles, and San Francisco firsthand? Are you Active duty military, with upcoming orders for a new assignment, with no interest in the responsibility of becoming a homeowner? If so, these questions might make you lean towards renting, as opposed to buying. It’s nice to know that as a renter, you won’t have to worry about footing the bill for a repair on a roof that is falling apart, paying a monthly a condo fee (that could range anywhere from $150-$700), or paying the bill for a lawn service to pick up the leaves from your $1,000,000 Mount Vernon home, in fall. Overall, renting can be cheaper up front, but it isn’t for everyone. Also, who says you can’t just buy later?
Build Your Credit While You Sock Away Savings for a Down Payment
Paying your bills on time is an excellent way to build your credit score, and to show lenders that you know how to manage your money. If you are frugal, you can take a chip off each pay check, to build up a savings for buying a home in the future. The return on applying your savings to the purchase of the home of your dreams can be exponential. For those with an eye on the future, being a responsible tenant can prepare you financially and teach you the accountability necessary for home ownership.
