Del Ray, VA Homes For Sale

The Del Ray neighborhood in Alexandria, Virginia has been trending upward for the past few years—to such a degree that the inventory of highly desirable homes for sale is starting to become depleted. What are buyers going to do when there are no more charming Craftsman-style properties left? This is a serious dilemma which is only marginally addressed by the new luxury townhomes that are being built in other Alexandria neighborhoods.

Because what if you don’t want to move to another neighborhood? What if your heart is set on buying a home in Del Ray where all your friends have already bought awesome Victorian bungalows? And all your friends are happily strolling to delightful neighborhood bars and cafes and you’re stuck hanging out by yourself in some four-story townhouse?

More About the Del Ray Real Estate Market

Del Ray was formed in the late 1800s as a small grid of streets and later merged with the adjacent town of Potomac. It is for this reason that you’ll sometimes see it labeled on maps as Potomac West. Do not believe this heresy—Del Ray is its own very cool place with a popular retail spine along Mount Vernon Avenue featuring a stubbornly independent assortment of local mom and pop stores, restaurants and funky boutiques. Old Town with all its upscale eateries, art galleries and other quality attractions is also nearby. And, for those needing the comfort of brand-name retailers, the emerging Potomac Yard uber-community is close at hand.

Despite the tongue-in-cheekery about condos for sale, they actually do exist in Del Ray so there is actually no need to feel left out. You’ll find fun old Federal-style buildings that have converted to living space, along with some garden courtyard complexes and traditional townhouses. 

But it’s the detached single-family homes for sale that attract the most attention, with Colonial, Cape, Victorian and a fairly amazing array of Sears Roebuck “Craftsman” kit homes with all sorts of interesting details and varying rooflines. Homes and condos for sale generally start around $200,000 for studio units and top out at over a million for large houses.

Unfortunately, the part about the decreasing inventory is real. The huge run on homes for sale in Del Ray in recent years has had its predictable effect, both in available listings and rising home values. In other words, you might want to stake a bid on an endangered species before it’s gone. Contact District Partners at Compass to learn more about available properties in Del Ray, at (202) 798-3600.
