Market Alert: The Colonies in McLean VA

Picture this: You head home after a long day at the office. As you pull your car up to the gate, punch in your keycode, and enter the tree-lined drive toward your condo, you breathe a sigh of relief. You can hear the laughter of families splashing in the pool in the distance, and hear the steady tap tap, tap tap of a tennis ball from the court that is only a few steps from your front door. You exit your car and stroll up to your 1395 square foot 3 bedroom condo (The Colonies “F Model”), you breathe in the fresh air and feel the same feeling you felt when you first walked up to that door– this is home.

The Colonies: A Great Place to Live

Located in the heart of McLean VA, the condominiums at The Colonies aren’t considered new. They are regularly updated and maintained, but they’ve managed to keep something that those new condos don’t seem to have– the thing many call charm. These condos have known and housed many people, and have been a crucial part of many life’s stories.

Featuring 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom dwellings with many different layouts, it’s easy to find the one that will fit you. Each unit features its own laundry area, living room, dining room and a good sized kitchen. Whether it’s just you living there, or you and several others, there is more than enough room to grow. You’ll also be most relieved and excited to note that there is plenty of parking for everyone at The Colonies.

You’ll love the commute, too. With the Silver Line Metro station less than a half mile away, it’s easy to hop a ride into work without worrying about the busy roads and lengthy travel time.

Calling All Investors

The Colonies are a lovely place to live. Those who have lived there leave reviews such as “Great place to live and raise children.  With all the high rises coming to Tysons, the community remains a quiet park amidst all the new development. And whenever things feel too quiet, the excitement of the new expanding city is just a short walk away.”

But it’s not just a great place to live, it’s also the optimal place to invest. Why, you ask? Because of the transformation of Tysons. As new developments taking place, you can expect to see an increase in growth in the area, plenty of jobs, and a healthy economy.


It is projected that 100,000 new residents will come as a result of Tysons expansion. All these people are going to need great places to live, and The Colonies is a prime home base. The Colonies are a comfortable distance away, making it a convenient place to call home. The rise in residents will almost certainly bring a surge in house prices as well, making The Colonies an investor’s dream come true.


The development of the Tysons also means plenty of jobs. And by plenty, I mean 200,000 new jobs by the year 2050. There will be shops to run, classes to teach, and offices to attend to. Don’t think it’ll be all buildings, either.

From the Fairfax County website, it declares that “Parks, open spaces and places for recreation are critical to Tysons. A comprehensive urban park system supports a high quality of life for residents and provides social, economic and health benefits. These spaces are even more critical in the high-density, urban neighborhoods planned for Tysons, as private yards or recreation facilities may not be available for many residents.”

With new jobs come more people, and you can bet the condos and The Colonies will be among the first to be snatched up.

Healthy Economy

What do you get when you find an increase in jobs and population? The perfect breeding ground for a healthy economy. Healthy economies benefit investors especially because it means the value of the condos goes up as well.

The Time to Buy is Now

With all the growth that is about to take place, it’s clear that if you are going to get into this one-of-a-kind condominium complex, now’s your chance. If you’re itching for a place to escape city life, raise your family, or enjoy a sense of community, you won’t find one better than The Colonies. Buy while the market is still low enough to guarantee a fair price– regardless of if you plan to hold onto it or make some money on it in the future. This gem of a place won’t last at the prices listed for much longer, and the longer you wait, the longer you’ll miss enjoying the view from your new living room.
