I may have a job opportunity at Quantico MCB, would it be better to live North or South of the base as far as the commute goes. I would think with all the traffic going into D.C. it would be better to live North of the base so I'd be traveling South or opposite the heavy traffic in the morning, and then opposite in the evening, is this a safe assumption?

You got it!!! Always better to go against the traffic. Traffic coming out of Fredericksburg is early and heavy so I would avoid it if possible. However, housing is going to be cheaper the farther south you go.

It varies. There can be some very dumpy areas on Dumfries/Triangle but also some new construction. Home prices will be a tad cheaper than Woodbridge area homes and a bit more rural.

There are some excellent new/newer developments in Triangle which will put you very close to Quantico. Also, if you head to 234/Dumfries Road there are some great developments here as well. Staying north of Q-town is the only way to go.
