Hello. My husband and I are relocating from Georgia and he will be working at Quantico. What are the best areas closest to Quantico to look for a place to live? We are early 40's and no kids, so schools aren't a concern. Also, we haven't decided yet if we will rent or buy. Just from initial browsing, it seems the housing market is pretty good there, so if we moved in a couple of years, selling may not be an issue? Thanks for any opinions and input!

I would look at Montclair or the many subdivisions along Dumfries Rd (234). Many nice communities here and you could even find a home here with a decent size yard if interested. Some may say Stafford/Fredericksburg but the commute will be tougher going there.

I echo the Montclair suggestion. Easy drive to Quantico, nice community amenities (pool, trails, lake with beach, golf course). Mix of townhomes and detached, depending on your needs. Steady amount of homes for sale, not as many rentals pop up, and when they do they tend to go quick.

A bit further down 234 is both Ashland and Hope Hill communities, two more solid options.

I would add Lake Ridge to the list. When we lived there a neighbor worked at Quantico and loved the commute, they always said they were going against traffic so it was so much easier than others who were heading north. Good luck!
