Dumfries VA Homes For SaleDumfries dates back to the late 1600's when it served as a prominent harbor for the tobacco trade and also featured one of the region's earliest major gristmills. The town was also part of an important overland route – during the Revolutionary War, George Washington had a cartway built, extending from Georgetown to Dumfries. Known for many years now as Dyers Road, the onetime “baggage wagon” road comes to an end behind Alexander Henderson Elementary School, named after a prominent merchant and resident from the town's early years.

Despite its enviable waterfront location, homes for sale in Dumfries have an average list price of just $315,000. As modest as that number seems, it's considerably higher than the market's low point in 2009 when Zillow estimated the median value index at $255,000. With 63% single-family detached houses and 36% condos, the question becomes – why are prices so low? It's hard to say – recently built custom homes here rarely crack the $500,000 mark. In fact, a 7-bedroom contemporary Colonial sold last year for just $327,000.

Dumfries is often lumped in with Montclair, its neighbor to the north. Prices are higher in Montclair which may have to do with the popular lake that is its centerpiece. There's also some disparity when it comes to community amenities – Montclair has a private country club, golf course and tennis courts while Dumfries has the Weems-Botts Museum, a historic house that is rumored to be haunted. Regardless of any haves or have-nots, Dumfries is a town with considerable charm and highly competitive real estate prices.
