The National Association of Realtors (NAR) recently published a new study detailing the performance of metropolitan areas across the country.  The good news was welcomed by many professionals and real estate experts alike.  In the fourth quarter of last year, home sales in over 70% of metro areas showed astounding growth.

But what’s even more exciting to hear are the promising figures coming from the Washington, D.C. metro housing market.  In January, homes-sales volume remained above the billion-dollar mark, reassuring many that 2014 could be a good year in real estate. While actual sales numbers fluctuated from December, the median home price rose, continuing the growth in the housing market.  In fact, home prices reached an 8-year high last month!

More importantly, these new figures are especially encouraging to homebuyers – and they should be!  This is an extraordinary time to buy a new home and many interested home shoppers are wasting no time.  In Prince William County, home to our Marina Landing townhomes, the median sale price has risen 3% over the past year and days on the market has fallen by 5%.

Marina Landing offers an extraordinary community lifestyle unlike any other.  Homeowners can live in water view, luxury townhomes that overlook the Occoquan River.  And, these homes utilize the ‘townhome over retail’ concept for a truly unique and convenient living experience.  Floor plans vary from two to three bedroom with two and one-half baths over three levels.  With expansive windows and plenty of natural sunlight, the townhomes at Marina Landing are sure to be the most popular in Prince William County!

Tucked away in the waterfront community of Belmont Bay, residents in Marina Landing townhomes have access to the amenities offered, including walking trails and a pool.  The nearby Osprey’s Golf Course and clubhouse is a draw to many homeowners as well.  Additionally, residents are close to the VRE station that will conveniently bring them to and from Washington D.C. Interested residents can also opt to join the private Belmont Bay Marina featuring 158 slips for boaters. Who knew homeowners could have all of this just a short distance from the nation’s capital?

The new townhomes for sale at Marina Landing are bound to sell quickly!  With only 12 available homes, supplies are limited and smart homebuyers are moving quickly to find the right one for their families!  For more information and to view floor plans, visit the Marina Landing page on the Christopher Companies website.
