The Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) team has continued to put in place the plan for moving over 21,000 military and civilian jobs to Fort Belvoir by 2011. Popular neighborhoods close to Ft Belvoir including Kingstowne, Lorton and Springfield are already beginning to see some of the changes to the infrastructure that will help accommodate the huge influx of new personnel.
For buyers who are part of the relocation the opportunity to purchase homes in popular neighborhoods close to the base has never been better. With lower prices and the VA home loan program being one of the few 100% financing programs available, military and eligible civilians are finding good buys throughout the area.
Recently one of my clients decided this was a great time to buy an investment property close to Fort Belvoir and found tenants who were relocating to the area as part of the BRAC program. With the wide variety of homes available including foreclosures, new and resale homes there is a home to meet the needs of just about anyone.
With plenty of shopping nearby, highly rated schools, wonderful parks, historical landmarks and easy access to DC the area is posed to take off when the new personnel arrive.
If you have orders to Fort Belvoir as part of the BRAC program give me a call at 703-346-2213 to discuss your needs.
