Like much of the Washington DC Metropolitan Area, Alexandria VA real estate has gone through an extended gentrification trend over the past decade. The term has become a buzzword, encompassing both architectural revitalization and economic development. There has been substantial debate among those seeing the benefits of a continued boom in revenues and those who worry that affordable housing will soon be priced out. The larger picture however, is that real estate values are continuing to grow at a modest yet sustainable level.
