Living close to Washington D.C., but not too close can be a good thing. First off there is a discount living farther out. The cost of land, houses and taxes can be less than living in the capitol or its neighboring counties. But it is more than the money. Commuting can be more fun. I recently spoke with commuters in the area about how the long drive feels. “I don’t really notice it. I listen to books on tape.” Another commuter mentioned that podcasts can really help the time go by faster. One commuter learned a new language using an instructional cd. There are a lot of really beneficial uses of time.
Additionally, you can branch out socially and join a commuter pool. Having a companion to chat with on the ride in can really help the time pass by. You can also take turns putting the mileage on your cars.
Another perk to living in a commuter town is the town. Small town communities in the area have lots of charm. Nothing beats the views of the mountains and wide open spaces. There are wineries, shops, battlefields and so much more.

"John first provided us with an honest assessment of our home and an extensive presentation about the process he and EXIT Cornerstone use to market homes. He further provided pricing comps and a detailed explanation of the price he suggested we list at. John was flexible and responsive to our requests, meeting on our schedule on short notice. When we moved out-of-state after listing, John took care of every detail above and beyond what we could have imagined. He held open houses, met with inspectors, and arranged for a contractor to complete repairs. We sold our home at close to our initial asking price in a short period of time. We would highly recommend his services to anyone.
