Living in the Washington-Arlington-Alexandria Metro Area

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, February 27, 2018

Abberly at Southpoint, Fredericksburg, VAIt would be an understatement to say that the nation’s capital is a unique place. The centrally located National Mall is an urban planning gem, with excellent open spaces, walking paths, and major monuments in a classic architectural style. Lining the mall is the Smithsonian museum complex, probably the best set of museums in the world in a single location. In reality, the whole mall setup is a museum in and of itself and a major destination for locals and visitors alike. Numerous government offices and first class hospitality venues surround the mall.

For most prospective residents, the real story of the D.C. area is the array of residential and commercial corridors surrounding the city on all sides.

The super-suburbs are all very large and mostly new residential suburbs with extensive commercial, residential, and corporate developments. Employment in the greater DC area is strong in general and particularly strong in this zone. Many do commute to the DC area proper but more often commute to other places in the suburbs.

The outlying northern Virginia suburbs in most ways meet the definition of “exurbs,” where people benefit economically from the city and may use its airport, but have little daily connection with it.

The dominance of the U.S. Government and its impact on the local economy and culture cannot be overstated. Not surprisingly, the area has a high percentage of well-educated citizens. Arts, entertainment and cultural assets in total are among the best. The Cost of Living Index is high but not exorbitant for this type of area. Housing options and costs have escalated in recent years, but there are signs of softening. Public transportation works well.

Bottom line - Washington, D.C. and its Virginia suburbs stand alone as a U.S. city and metro area with unique beauty, plenty to see and do, an active and intellectually stimulating lifestyle, and a wide variety of employment and living options. The D.C. area isn’t for everyone, but most who live there are glad they do.

Washington lies at the western edge of the mid-Atlantic Coastal Plain, about 50 miles east of the Blue Ridge Mountains and 35 miles west of Chesapeake Bay. The immediate area is flat with rolling hills starting just outside the city to the northwest and southwest. The climate is coastal continental with a subtropical influence. Summers are warm and humid with occasional hot, sticky spells and thunderstorms. Because of the inland location, summer heat and humidity aren’t offset by sea breezes. Winters are cold but not severe. Precipitation is uniformly distributed throughout the year. Potomac floods can result from heavy rains, sometimes augmented by snowmelt and high tides.

Renting vs. Buying a Home: Which is Right?

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, February 15, 2018

Abberly at Southpoint, Fredericksburg, VAOwning a home is a dream for many Americans. But as the housing market continues to move up and down, does it make more financial sense to rent a house or get a mortgage?

Ultimately, the answer depends on multiple factors, including your finances, your long-term plans and the real estate market in your area.

Renting vs. buying a home: Calculating the costs

The first consideration in deciding whether to rent or buy is often how much each will cost:

If you rent a home, your monthly costs are generally fixed. A fixed, monthly rent rate may or may not include utilities such as electric, gas, and cable or internet. Most leases require the first month’s rent, last month’s rent and a security deposit equal to one month’s rent in advance. For an apartment that costs $1,000 per month, you’d need to pay $3,000 up front.

The good news: When you’re a tenant, your landlord is responsible for paying to fix any issues with the property, whether a leaky roof, a cranky furnace or a burst pipe.

When buying a home, most mortgage lenders require a down payment of between 5 percent and 20 percent of the home’s price. Some loans may have a lower threshold, but down payments below 20 percent will mean paying for private mortgage insurance, or PMI, which is an additional monthly expense. A mortgage calculator can give you a rough estimate of your monthly payments, including your mortgage and other expenses such as property taxes and homeowners insurance.

Keep in mind, however, that your financial responsibility doesn’t end with your monthly mortgage payment. You’ll also need to pay for maintenance and repairs, whether a few bucks to fix a leaky faucet or thousands to replace your roof.

Reasons to buy a home

Buying a home can be a great investment.

Some indications that buying may be right for you:

  • You plan to stay in the same place for more than a few years.
  • You’d be willing to rent out part or all of your home, should your plans or finances change.
  • You’re eligible for a fair mortgage, with payments you can afford.
  • You’re willing to put some “sweat equity” into a fixer-upper, allowing you to buy something more affordable, whose value you can increase with improvements over time.

Reasons to rent a home

Though owning your own home can offer a sense of security, home ownership also has its drawbacks—remember the roof replacement? Getting out of a lease is also much less of an ordeal than selling a house, so if you’re not sure where you’ll be next year, renting instead of buying can save you some headaches.

Some indications that renting may be right for you:

  • You aren’t sure how long you’ll be in the home due to work, changing family circumstances or other reasons.
  • You won’t be able to afford—or don’t want to bother with—the maintenance or repairs a house may need.
  • Your finances are likely to change soon, potentially making it difficult to keep up with mortgage payments.
