Setting Realistic Real Estate Objectives For Your 1-BR 1 BA [Home In Fairfax County

My name is Will Nesbitt. I'm a local licensed real estate adviser and I work hard everyday in and around units in 22044 in Fairfax County. 3101 S Manchester St #119 is a unique and interesting modest condo in Northern Virginia, but it's not for every buyer.

My desire with this commentary is to help you decide yourdesires, so that you can move forward in your real estate search in Fairfax County. You have a lot of unit options in Falls Church.

In general, these are not particularly difficult decisions, but they are decisions that only you can make. For example:

  • Do you need a garage? None of the condominiums in this home community have a garage.
  • What type of heating system do you prefer? Electric? Maybe you like natural gas or the warmth of an oil furnace? The most typical heating system in this area is forced air.
  • How many bedrooms do you need? 3101 S Manchester St #119 is a 1-bedroom unit.
  • How much space do you need? How much space do you want? The average sized home in Woodlake Towers is 906.
