The pools are officially open and most people are more concerned with planning new traffic routes to the beach than buying real estate.

If you are considering buying a home in 2019, that makes this a great time to find a great home at a great price. I say it often but it’s worth saying, buying a home in summer or winter does get great results even if it doesn’t produce the most inventory. Since smart real estate tips are worth saying multiple times, I brought back a great house this week.

Craftsman style homes are still popular and farmhouse style homes are all the rage right now. The center hall colonial is still a great home despite its waning popularity though. It’s also a great opportunity to find a good deal. New homes in the Town of Vienna are selling for as much as over $3M.

The chances of even finding a sizable detached home in Vienna for less than $1.5M are getting smaller and smaller as more builders bring us the new, shiny homes with all the latest home trends. What if you want to live in Vienna and don’t have that budget? Don’t discount these colonials! The colonial style home is a staple in the D.C. metro area. It’s also a deal right now.

Today there are two colonials featured in Luxury for Less in Vienna. This one is priced below tax assessed value and has a new HVAC and a fully finished basement. Maybe it’s time to fall back in love with a colonial style home.

1003 Cottage Street SW Vienna (Reduced $59,800)
