The Little City, as it is known here, is a very popular place for Northern Virginia home shoppers. It has all the charm of a small town, has a quieter vibe than the Arlington urban villages, but still offers a great commute to DC, Metro access, walkability and top rated schools.
Falls Church City, along with all of this goodness, has a higher tax rate than the other jurisdictions in NOVA and consistently high real estate prices, pretty similar to Arlington. It is mostly single family homes, with a few condo buildings and townhomes mixed in. Don’t look here if you are looking for a steal on a home, but do look here if you want a pleasant mix of walkability and calm, all in one charming Little City.
