With Amazon building a large Headquarters facility here in Crystal City Virginia, I am getting asked questions regarding home prices in the area.  One thing of interest, is that Crystal City is a predominantly commercial area with a few residential options here and there.  So most newcomers to the area and future Amazon employees may need to consider some nearby communities for their homes.  Pricing in Crystal City proper will range depending upon the size of the unit.  At time of this blog post, there are 3 condominiums available in the Waterford House building.  Pricing ranges from $450,000 for a 1 bedroom 1 bathroom with 935 square feet and a $727 per month condo fee to $1,650,000 for a 3 bedroom 3 bathroom 2817 square foot condo with a $2400 per
