Alexandria City, VA Homes and Condos For Sale

Homes for sale in Alexandria City are those in the city itself and not the portion that extends into Fairfax County. This large independent city covers 15.4 square miles and is home to around 150,000 residents. The population continues to expand and that brings up the obvious need of housing. There’s a bountiful inventory available, but that also depends on just where you want to live in the city.

At issue is the plethora of individual neighborhoods. Some have tons of available properties while others are starting to get fished out. Luckily, this part of the Commonwealth of Virginia is teeming with enterprising developers who are happily building luxury condos and townhouses for sale—just for you!

The historical seat of the city is Old Town Alexandria, located right on the Potomac River and once a bustling shipping port. These days it’s teeming with amazing shops and restaurants, and is one of Washington Metro’s most popular destinations for homes for sale. From Colonial row houses to modernistic condos repurposed from old commercial buildings, this is the city’s hottest marketplace.

More About the Alexandria City Real Estate Market 

Also very much in vogue right now is the community of Del Ray with its amazing Sears Roebuck “Craftsman” bungalows and eclectic independent businesses—a classic “small town” right in the middle of a busy city.

There are too many other intriguing neighborhoods to list, but a sampling would include the extremely ambitious Potomac Yard multi-use redevelopment; Cameron Station which is a former Army base that was redeveloped into a planned residential community with retro-architecture; the Landmark Mall redevelopment which will include luxury condos for sale and Old Town Commons with its rash of new upscale multistory townhomes.
