Right now in Blooms Crossing we are seeing amazing buying opportunities. I've been showing homes to several buyers in the area. That said, the taxes run much higher in Manassas Park compared with the of a home just a mile away, that falls into the Prince William County tax codes.
Centerville is good as well. Buying a home is so much more than finding the best priced house. It's about what type of home fits into your lifestyle. What services are important to you? VRE Station? Community Pool? Shopping right around the corner? If a neighborhood appeals to you visually, that's a great sign you'll be happy there.
Blooms Crossing is the hidden gem most people don't even know is there. Read this post I wrote a few weeks ago, this may help..
