Dumfries, VA Homes For Sale

Nestled up against the mouth of Quantico Creek is a small community that tends to fly under the Washington Metro radar. Dumfries is the oldest chartered town in the Commonwealth of Virginia, and features beautiful homes for sale. Plus, the prices are surprisingly competitive. What’s more, there is a large inventory of available properties in a town that is home to only 5,000 residents. You can also toss in affordable condos and townhouses for sale—some with waterfront views!

This adorable community is part of Prince Williams County, and located about 25 miles from Washington, DC. During the late 1600s it served as a prominent harbor for the tobacco trade—Quantico Creek feeds into the Potomac River. The town also featured a large grist mill as well as an important cartway built by George Washington during the Revolutionary War. Now known as Dyers Road, the onetime “baggage wagon” road ends behind the local elementary school. For more information about Dumfries, VA homes for sale, contact us today!

More About the Dumfries Real Estate Market

Despite its amazing waterfront location, home values in Dumfries took a steep plunge during the national real estate downturn that began in the mid-2000s. And while list prices have been climbing in recent years, they are still relatively modest. Condos for sale start around $150,000 while detached single-family homes for sale can be purchased for less than $300,000. The word is finally starting to get out, however, with high end prices now climbing to over a million dollars. 

The town is sometimes associated with Montclair to the north. Each community is different however—homes for sale in Montclair are more expensive, perhaps owing to amenities like a popular lake, private country club, golf course and tennis facilities. But Dumfries has a historic house that is rumored to be haunted plus a Pizza Hut and a Harley Davidson outlet! Oh, you didn’t need to know that last part? Sorry. But it still has lots of great homes and condos for sale—all in the little town of Dumfries.
