The last five years have brought a lot of changes to the Northern Virginia landscape. If you live near Fort Belvoir, the old Fort Belvoir Engineering Proving Grounds or the Marc Center in Alexandria you can't help but notice all of the new buildings. The movement of new people into the area and realignment of work centers has been going on for sometime and still continues with moves that could take until 2015 in some areas.
Recently the Washington Examiner interviewed me for an article; "Local resources offer help for BRAC Families" regarding some of the assistance I've provided to families moving to or within the area. Over the last month two Army physicians relocating from Walter Reed to the new Fort Belvoir Community Hospital contacted me about rental properties close to Fort Belvoir and both are now living in the Belmont Bay community in Woodbridge. Another family contacted me with only two weeks to find a home to rent. I did the leg work, they never made a house hunting trip and when they arrived the home in Reston was ready for them.
Though the number of civilians and military families who ultimately need to or will relocate to the area is not equal to the number of civilian and military jobs estimated as part of BRAC moves, there are still people making a housing shift. For many working at Fort Belvoir the shift has been to move south of the base to communities in nearby Prince William County VA. For those who are looking to buy a home the incentives offered by new home builders has been attractive and for those who don't have time to wait Prince William County offers a wide selection of neighborhoods with reasonably priced resale homes.
If you have discovered you need to make a move as part of BRAC 05 to any of the new work centers including the National Geospatial Agency (NGA) in Springfield, the Fort Belvoir Community Hospital or the Marc Center (BRAC 133) give Cindy Jones and CJ Realty Group a call at 703-346-2213. We've helped multiple families making the transition as a result of BRAC 05, both locally and from out of the area, over the last few years. Let our experience and knowledge of the local area work for you.
