Hunting for Apartments in Fairfax, DC, and Northern Virginia

Searching for affordable apartments in Fairfax, VA? If you are, you know how frustrating the rental market can be. Throughout Northern Virginia and, in fact, the entire Washington, DC metro area, apartments are at a premium and rents are high. What’s happening in the rental market for Fairfax apartments? How can you find a great, safe and affordable apartment for you and your family in this current environment?

Affordable Fairfax Apartments

Option A is to go Upmarket

The market for luxury apartments has exploded in our area. Whether new construction or renovated older buildings, these are in the most desirable neighborhoods, often close to urban conveniences such as shopping and restaurants. More and more, apartments feature high-end amenities such as concierges, well-appointed gyms, and even movie theaters and designer party rooms.

It’s easy to be impressed by these fun features. But for young professionals seeking 1 bedroom apartments in Northern Virginia or DC or families seeking 3 or 4 bedroom apartments, the rent for these apartments, more often than not, is out of reach. Not everyone can afford these luxury amenities; many would rather put their money toward savings, tuition, or other important expenses instead of concierges or movie theaters. In addition, some of these apartments are not really geared toward families with children. 

 

Option B is to go Further Away

Faced with this reality, many people looking for apartments in the Fairfax, Virginia area are forced into Option B: they rent in less-than-desirable neighborhoods or locations further out into Virginia. Far from conveniences like shopping, public transportation, and decent schools, these apartments might be more affordable. But the trade-off comes with a longer commute to their jobs in Northern Virginia or Washington, DC. Plus, these apartments are often bare-bones, without places for children to play, summertime pools—or even dishwashers. Then there’s the reality that the neighborhood that may be affordable isn’t very safe.

If neither Option A nor Option B are viable for you, there’s fortunately an Option C that offers the best of both worlds: Fairfax Circle Villa.

Our garden apartments, set in park-like grounds, are in the heart of Fairfax. Close to public transportation like bus stops and major thoroughfares, the convenient location can’t be beat. We’re only a mile away from the Vienna Metro station as well. Stores, restaurants, and schools are a quick walk or drive away.
