Hi There. Well being a local person in this neighborhood and knowing most of the homes around here I have to tell you that those are fun to look at, but you can get something just as nice also near the water, and without the noise from the Beltway and the Wilson Bridge ruining your outdoor senses. Also, most of the homes there don't have any kind of yards or outdoor space except a small 3' wide bacony and space behind your garage. But, it is a nice walking neighborhood and an easy walk along the river and to King St.

There are some nice places in Old Town closer to your price range that are similar size and also near or by the river. I'd be happy to let you know about them. And yes, Ford's Landing has HOA fees.

Fords Landing is truly a wonderful neighborhood and easy access to all of the restaurants and shops of Old Town! To give you some perspective the web link below shows what is currently for sale in the neighborhood and also what has sold there in the last 6 months. If $700K is your desired price point there are other nearby homes that would offer many of the luxuries of Ford's and keep you on budget. Please feel free to contact me for some insight into Old Town!
