Cameron Station Real Estate in 2008

Prediction:  Cameron Station sales are going to start heating up in the Spring.

Cameron Station -- Alexandria, VAShaking off the Winter doldrums, the real estate market is starting to get busy in Alexandria, Virginia and notably in the Cameron Station neighborhood, a premier community of townhouses, condos, and a smattering of single family homes.  Last night, after an early evening walk around the lake at Ben Brenman Park, a large city park adjacent to Cameron Station, my wife and I saw the first signs of Spring.  Flowers were budding, neighbors walking their dogs, and parents out in force with their babies in strollers and their bouncing toddlers.

Spring is on its waySo what's happening in the way of real estate?  One thing's for certain -- the For Sale signs are popping up faster than the daffodils.



Here's an overview of the current market in Cameron Station:

It looks like a very beautiful neighbourhood......daffodils, oh my, we're still buried under 2 feet of snow here. Usually the crocuses are out about now.

CHRIS:  Lots of available inventory right now and with the flowers just starting to bloom, it's a great time to go take a look.

JO:  Yes, it really is a beautiful neighborhood and a beautiful park right next to it.  The daffodils are starting to bloom.  Sorry to hear about your snow.

BARBARA JO & BILL:  Not current.  If you hover over the photo, you'll see that I tagged the picture with this "doesn't look like this now, but will soon."  I took this photo last Summer.

I was in Cameron Station on Friday with clients.  Love the free metro shuttle for folks headed to DC.

CINDY:  The free shuttle bus to Van Dorn metro is a great perk of the Cameron Station community.
