City GuideFairfax

A history dating back to the 18th century gives the city of Fairfax, Virginia a “sense of place,” even though it is located within one of the most heavily populated areas in the east.

Considered separate from Fairfax County, the city nevertheless serves as the county seat. With Washington, D.C. just a short drive away, Fairfax offers a combination of opportunity and growth while retaining its historical charm. The Fairfax Museum and Visitor’s Center showcases the city’s Civil War-era heritage and provides a doorway to other sites in the region, including Manassas and Skyline Drive. Civil War re-enactments, historical sites, art shows, theatrical performances, and various festivals ensure that there's always plenty to do in Fairfax.

Finding an Apartment in Fairfax

Being prepared well in advance of starting your search for places to rent in Fairfax will make the process go much more smoothly. Try going to meet with a landlord empty-handed, and you won't be signing any apartment lease. Instead, have a recent credit report, rental history, references, and proof of income available for prospective landlords. While housing in this region is more expensive than in most, the benefits of life in the productive and charming city of Fairfax is worth the price.

Property rentals here come in all shapes and sizes, including townhouses, condominiums, single homes, and apartments. You'll find everything from basic studio dwellings to premier apartments that come complete with furnishings and on-site swimming pools. This is a popular place to live and work, so start the search for a new home early. It's also not for the faint of wallet, with real estate being among the most expensive in the country. If you do find a suitable place within your budget, have all your papers and money in order--you may have to pounce!
