Your friend is right that the housing market is very favorable for buyers these days, right now the prices of homes are not at the bottom as they have started to increase but still it's a good time to buy given the fact the interest rates are historically low. Renting any house near DC is not difficult if you have a good Realtor by your side. Also the rental market is very hot in this area these days, so if you plan on owning a home in future after retirement then buying now and renting it until you move to VA would be the best option.
My team does manage properties for our clients in other states and overseas if you need more information on that please feel free to call/email me.
What type of house?? Well, Jing it all depends in what kind of house you would like to live after you move to Virginia, any house which is well kept can be rented by you Realtor and managed by your property manager who will make sure that it is kept in good condition and the dues are paid on time.
Which area: Rentals are in high demand in all areas - all the way from Woodbridge to DC it all depends how much you would like to spend and which kind of property you will be looking in to, I will be more than happy to discuss the options with you over the phone or in person and help you with your real estate needs.
Hope this information is helpful to you!!
