A number of retirees in the Washington DC metropolitan area are selling their homes and looking at other townhomes for sale. Townhomes offer their owners some distinct advantages over owning a home. People who own townhomes often get to enjoy the same investment benefits like value appreciation without having to pay as much in taxes or maintenance fees.

Owning a home, as many of you well know, is a great deal of responsibility. The responsibility increases the more land you have. The more land you have the more problems you can have. The chances of insect infestation increase (termites, roaches, ants) not to mention the invasion of other undesirable creatures like mice and rats.

Townhomes for Sale in Northern Virginia

Northern Virginia seems to be the hot place to buy tonwhomes for sale, especially in cities like Arlington, Vienna and Tyson's Corner. The population in and around Vienna, Virginia, has increased dramatically over the past 100 years. As the population grew so did the number of townhomes for sale. The town of Vienna has access to one of the best hospitals east of the Mississippi River, Fairfax Hospital, and one of the busiest airports, Dulles International Airport.

The opening of Tyson's Corner Center in 1968 prompted another surge in population. High-tech companies began setting up operations in this part of the country and companies like America On Line (AOL) are headquartered in Northern Virginia. The opening of the Vienna Metro-rail station back in 1986 served to better connect this town with the rest of the DC metropolitan area. This then prompted the construction of more townhomes for sale.
