Why Buy a Single-Family Home in Fairfax County?

Purchasing a single-family home could be the perfect opportunity for a multitude of different reasons. Whether you’re looking for your forever home, are ready to upgrade to a home with more space, downsize to a cozy little rambler, or are simply hoping to be a homeowner instead of a renter, allowing you to renovate and upgrade as you see fit, purchasing a single-family home can be a great investment.  

What Styles of Single-Family Homes are in the Area?

As with many counties, you can find multiple different housing styles within Fairfax County which is ideal for homebuyers. Due to the large range of housing styles, sizes, and thus, prices, whether you’re a first-time homebuyer, or experienced in real estate, you are sure to find the perfect house to call home. There are primarily 4 styles of homes that are most commonly found in the area: 

  1. Colonial – This is the most commonly found housing style and often boasts brick exteriors, two-story floorplans, matching windows, shutters, wood burning fireplaces and you’ll generally find the bedrooms on the second story of the home. 
  2. Contemporary – These homes are often equipped with wood siding and have a more open flow within the home with great living space. Whether with a loft, or a sunken/raised living room, you can easily go from room to room within a Contemporary home. 
  3. Rambler – Growing wildly in popularity, the single-story floorplans of ramblers are popular with those of all ages, whether young families raising children, those with medical needs where stairs aren’t ideal, or those simply wishing to move around a home where all rooms are on one level. While rare, you can occasionally find a “raised rambler” which is a single-story home with a finished basement. 
  4. Split Foyer – Similar to a split-level home, for a split foyer floorplan you’ll enter through a centrally located foyer, and then either go up or down half a flight of stairs to reach living areas. The kitchen is generally on the higher level, whereas the lower level is usually home to additional living space as well as bedrooms, almost like a daylight basement. 

Regardless of the home style that you’re searching for, our team is experienced in the local market and is ready to work with you to find you the perfect single-family home in Fairfax County.
