Amazon has announced the location of its new headquarters! Therefore, you may be wondering what is for sale in Crystal City.  Are there any homes for sale in Crystal City? Are there only condos or are there any townhomes or single family homes for sale in Crystal City.

No doubt Amazon chose Crystal City as one of the two new headquarters locations because it is a well established urban community in Northern Virginia. Located along the Potomac River with dramatic views of Washington, D.C. and walking distance of a Metro station, it has a lot to offer.  There are retail stores, restaurants, a new Whole Foods, high-rise apartment and condo buildings and commercial offices. A unique network of underground shops and walkways makes it pleasant even in Washington’s worst days of summer or the coldest days of February.

Have you just found out you are moving to Northern Virginia? Are you wondering where to look for a new home? What is for sale in Crystal City? While the commute to Crystal City from elsewhere in the DC metro area is not difficult, you might want to choose a neighborhood which is close to Crystal City, like Rosslyn, Arlington, Clarendon, Ballston, Pentagon City, Fairlington and Shirlington.
