Agree with your point about the immigrants in the Skyline area. We are immigrants too but legal and in STEM so didn't get a very good feel about the people in the building but they seemed quiet and keep to oneself kind.

We will be going to see the Oakton houses with our realtor this weekend and should get a better feel for the place and check the neighborhood and demographics visually.
You're welcome. For the record, I didn't point that out to imply they're bad people--my wife is also a legal immigrant, btw--but for someone who's not in one of those ethnic groups, it could be culturally unfamiliar. Also, it's a metric ton of kids who live in those buildings, so for non-parents, that could be annoying.

We have been keeping tabs at the Mclean/Tysons properties and have already ruled out the above properties due to the high condo fees of over $500. I will look into the Capital One development project and see if the residential condos fit in our budget.
True, if you want to save money on condo fees look for a building without an elevator. Make sure that you aren't on the highest floor. Also be sure to compare apples to apples, some of the condo fees include utilities.

Are school scores a big selling point for condos? Its been a long time, but when my wife and I were looking at condos, our plan was to move out by the times any prospective kids were about to start school.

I would look to live somewhere you feel comfortable and where the commute won't be too awful.
