What Do You Want In Your Condo In The City Of Alexandria?

I am a well-informed licensed real estate adviser. I work hard every day in and around 22314 in Alexandria, Virginia. I’d like to say that this other in 22314 is a great purchase for $4,495,000 but I can’t. That’s because when one calculates the value of a home the single biggest variable is the buyer. If it’s not the right home for my buyer client, it’s not the right home.
