Year after year the demand for single level living rises in Northern Virginia. This is particularly true in 55+/Active Adult communities. The population is aging and with age, many people find it difficult to get up and down stairs but they can do just fine on their own otherwise. There is also the population of 55+ people who simply like the resort style living (golf, indoor and outdoor pools, activities, exercise classes) offered in many of these communities. The problem is, rental housing that allows for single level living is hard to come by in Fairfax County and Prince William County. I know this because I'm a Seniors Real Estate Specialist and the number of calls I receive from people looking for rental housing in 55+ / active adult communities has skyrocketed. Communities such as Spring Hill in Lorton, River Ridge near Occoquan, Four Seasons in Dumfries and Regency at Dominion Valley in Haymarket are just a few of the spectacular 55+/Active Adult communities in which you could find a good investment property to buy, Rent Quickly and hold.

A larger model recently sold for $530,000.  Spring Hill resides in Lorton, Virginia which is in Southern Fairfax County.  Please note, Spring Hill also has apartment style condominiums.

Fredericksburg in Stafford County boasts two 55+ / Active Adult Communities- Falls Run and Celebrate. Falls Run patio and villa home prices range from $220,000 to $400,000.  The Celebrate community is still in development therefore there is an opportunity to buy new build construction if that is your preference.
