Forbes Names DC Top Area to Buy Real Estate in the World!

Washington DC Area Names Tops by ForbesWow that is a pretty big reputation to live up to.  Most of us who have lived and worked through the up and down markets in our area know real estate in the DC and Northern Virginia areas has always recovered faster than other parts of the county.  Now Forbes magazine has recognized the opportunities in our area as well.

The news over the last few months has also been positive regarding new jobs coming to our area including Hilton Hotels moving its headquarters from Beverly Hills CA to Fairfax County, VA.   In addition the Base Realignment and Closures (BRAC) movement is underway with 19,000 jobs shifting to the Fort Belvoir and Alexandria areas. 

Parts of our market have shown a significant upturn in sales volume in the last few months.  Prices are at or below 2004 levels in some neighborhoods and with lower interest rate loans available it has made more buyers seriously take a look at getting into a new home.  With the tax benefits of homeownership and rising rents it makes buying a home in our area a proposition worth considering in 2009.


If you are thinking of exploring the option of buying a home in Northern Virginia this year give me a call.  Let's prove Forbes Magazine is right and put you in a new home in the top real estate area in the world!  Give the Cindy Jones team a call at 703-346-2213 to talk about a new home.  No hassle, no pressure just straight talk about buying a new home in 2009.

Cindy, I hadn't heard about the Hilton thing.  That's good news!

Posted by Patricia Kennedy, Home in the Capital (RLAH Real Estate) almost 10 years ago

Yeah, Fairfax has Hilton but Montgomery County - across the river - has Marriott. So there. 

I hope the word gets out this is the place to buy real estate....and people start buying!

Pat-looks like they are heading to the Tysons Corner area.

Ken-Bill Mariott vs Paris Hilton...come on it isn't even a contest :-)  Hopefully good news about the growth of our area will help the buyers get a better understanding of our local market.

With what's going on in Washington, perhaps all those foreign journalists, not to mention all the lobbyists, need some houses -- LOL

Jim-you are right.  Need to keep those lobbyists in nice digs in case a member of congress needs a place to sleep.

This IS a good time and a good PLACE to buy!  I think Maryland didn't do a very good job at woo'ing Hilton into their state - so VA wins!

Excellent news, Cindy!  This deserves a feature.  Congratulations!

James-did Marriott have a non compete in their deal with the state to keep Hilton out?  Who knows?

Posted by Cindy Jones, Pentagon, Fort Belvoir & Quantico Real Estate News (Integrity Real Estate Group) over 9 years ago

Tchaka-Virginia and Northern Virginia in particular are happy to have Hilton coming our way.

Posted by Cindy Jones, Pentagon, Fort Belvoir & Quantico Real Estate News (Integrity Real Estate Group) over 9 years ago

Great news!  I have noticed a definite increase in activity. The open house I held yesterday yielded the biggest turnout I have ever had (although I have to give the beautiful weather and lake front location some of the credit).

Posted by Holly Weatherwax, A Great Real Estate Experience ( Associate Broker, Momentum Realty) over 9 years ago

Holly - Where was your open house?

Cindy - I am delighted to have Hilton too!!  (hopefully just the company and not the brat)

Posted by Tchaka Owen (Galleria International Realty) over 9 years ago

Cindy- it's about time huh? I'm hoping you guys start seeing the uptick we are experiencing in Richmond. It's nothing to write home about- but exapansion is definitely a good thing.

Posted by Mike Hogan, MBA (The Hogan Group at Keller Williams Realty) about 9 years ago

Mike-our numbers are up for the last few months.  The prices and inventory are down.  Bidding wars are back in some areas.  We will take any positive signs that the market will provide us!
