does anyone know anything about Belmont Station in MP? The homes all look newer but I don't really know that much about the "good" areas vs the "bad"

I'm sorry but never take advice from someone who can't speak with proper grammar (it's get a reasonably high crime rate?) I'm sorry but where did you go to school. Yes it is working class and there is nothing wrong with it. You seem to be the kind of person who judges a book by it's cover. Have you ever lived there before? If you have then you can talk. Besides last time I checked most places in NOVA has a higher than (U.S. average) Latino population and that includes centreville. Besides what do you have against Latinos anyway? they're just here trying to make a living like you and me.

Oh and one last thing you said drugs are prevalent in manassas park. I would say drugs are more prevalent in the richer areas of NOVA where the people have a higher income to be able to afford the hard core drugs.

Ecko or anyone else that is knowledgable of MP have any details of the Mosby Ridge subdivisions. Both are on the western side of MP and mind you are nice subdivisions, but when you exit the area where Cabbel is, the area gets a little hairy.

...most places in NOVA has [sic] a higher than..?

When critiquing the grammar of others, one should make sure to use proper grammar!

PS: That's why I normally refrain from critiquing the grammar of others....I live in a "glass house"! LOL

I understand why you'd all say bad things about MP because the lower area is pretty rough. But, please be careful with all your stereo-typing!
Very well said. Manassas Park has typically had a very low crime rate as well, not all of the NOVA areas can say that...

Manassas Park has a wide variety of housing options available. The eastern section of the city is newer and has large, single family homes, nice townhouses, and condos. The western part of the city has lower priced housing and is the older section of the city. Right now you can get a lot of house for your money but the houses that are fixed up and in move-in condition sell very fast. There are a lot of houses that need work (mostly foreclosers) and if you don't mind fixing up what you buy, you can probably pick up a great deal.

yes I took advantage of it myself. I bought a single family house in manassas park and received a good deal on it. I was 20 when I bought my first house and it is unfortunate to see all these foreclosures but, if there were not foreclosures than I probably would not be able to afford to buy my first house in NOVA. It has made the housing market around here a lot more affordable.

Manassas has a very low crime rate? Really? I seem to remember a shooting outside a bar in the news only a couple of weeks ago.
