Bearings South Condos: Prices, Pictures, Facts and Map

Garden Style Condos for Sale at Old Town's Southside

We love helping our clients achieve their real estate goals.

Built in 1941 as garden-style apartments and originally called Boulevard of Old Town apartments, these seven buildings were converted into a condominium community in 2006. The 158 units combine solid, red-brick construction with contemporary finishes such as granite countertops, Brazilian hardwood floors, crown molding, and stainless-steel kitchen appliances.

Studios, 1 bedroom, 2-bedroom and loft units are available, with both traditional and open floor plans. The Bearings condos feature galley kitchens, walk-in closets and ceiling fans supplemented by individual air-conditioning units.

Located in the 800 block of South Washington Street, the Bearings opens to the brick sidewalks and shade trees of Old Town, the oldest part of Alexandria — originally laid out in 1749 — and a nationally designated historic district. Immediately to the south is St. Mary’s
Catholic Church Cemetery, the oldest public Catholic cemetery in Virginia and the oldest active cemetery in all of Alexandria.

Six blocks east is the Potomac River—a pleasant stroll for Bearings residents and their dogs. Nearby are parks, the gourmet grocer Balducci’s and several restaurants. Cyclists have easy access to the bicycle path to Mount Vernon.

The Bearings condominium association provides:

  • Maintenance of a common laundry room
  • Maintenance of the grounds
  • Maintenance of the exteriors
  • Salaries of management staff
  • A master insurance policy
  • A reserve fund
  • Snow removal
  • Trash removal

Each condo is assigned a space in the complex parking lot, and on-street parking is available as well

    What Does a Realtor Do?

    Realtors are required by law to:

    • perform necessary and customary acts to assist in the purchase or sale of real estate.
    • perform these acts in good faith and with reasonable care.
    • properly account for money or other property placed in his or her care.
    • disclose “adverse material facts” which are, or should be, within the agent’s knowledge.

    Realtors can help buyers pre-qualify for mortgages and keep abreast of the latest home listings. They can assist sellers in preparing their homes and screening potential buyers. They can show investors the properties that fit their risk profiles and long-term investment strategies.

    Nesbitt Realty can quickly locate the perfect home for you. Our agents can efficiently organize and coordinate meetings with potential buyers and sellers.

    A Nesbitt Realty Realtor will be well acquainted with the important things you’ll want to know about the neighborhood you may be considering:

    • the quality of schools,
    • the safety of the community,
    • traffic volume,
    • price,
    • Metro accessibility
    • nearby parks and attractions

    Our agents have immediate access to homes as soon as they are put on the market, saving you hours of wasted drive-around time. When you’re ready to make an offer on a house, our Realtor will help structure the deal to save you money. He or she will explain the advantages and disadvantages of different types of mortgages and guide you through the mounds of paperwork.

    Rental hunting can be very daunting for some potential renters. Often the variety of options available to these renters is a source of overwhelming frustration for the renters. With so many appealing options it can be difficult to choose just one. However, there are some tips which can help to ease the process of apartment hunting. The process of finding the perfect apartment can be broken down into three simple steps.

    • The first step is to set a budget.
    • Talk to an agent who will research all available options.
    • Your agent can help you comparison shop to determine which option is the best.

How does a Realtor determine list price?

Nesbitt Realty
We love selling property because we’re good at selling property.

When it comes to buying a home, most potential buyers will use the listing price to as the number one factor to determine the homes that they look at. Even though you and your Realtor may determine the asking price, the buyer will determine the selling price. If the price is too high, most buyers won’t visit the property and won’t consider buying the property – which is why you want to determine the listing price carefully.

At Nesbitt Realty we use our experience, our local knowledge and a software resource called Realtors Property Resource®. Our agents can very accurately predict the sales price of any home, townhouse or condominium in Northern Virginia. We can show you the data points we use and let you see our assumptions, tweaking them when you disagree so that you’ll understand the science of how we make our recommendation. Knowing the value of your property is one of the most important parts of selling your home.
