When you want to buy a house in Fairfax County with a maximum budget of $400,000, you’ll need to set very careful priorities. The median sales price of homes there is $497,000, according to the Northern Virginia Association of Realtors, which could mean you’ll need to buy a condo or a townhouse rather than a single-family house. 

If your priority is to live in a community with plenty of on-site amenities, a condo in the Isabella building at 6301 Edsall Rd. in the Alexandria section of Fairfax County could be an option. For example, Unit 308, priced at $280,000, is a one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo with 781 square feet. The monthly condo fee is $366. 

The unit has a balcony, wide-plank flooring, a bonus nook for a home office, crown moldings, a coffered ceiling in the bedroom, a tankless water heater, a marble bathroom and an updated center island kitchen with maple cabinets. The unit also includes one garage parking space and three storage spaces. 

Amenities at the pet-friendly Isabella include an outdoor swimming pool, a fitness center, a residents’ lounge, a dog park, a sport court and shuttle service to Metro. 

Local schools are Bren Mar Park Elementary, Holmes Middle and Thomas A. Edison High, all rated 4, 5 or 6 out of 10 by GreatSchools.org, which is average.
