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.

"The Butters Team was excellent to work with. Holly, Ellen, Dianna, and the rest of the team are genuinely caring and knowledgeable. They strongly, strategically, and tactful advocated and represented my wife and I. They were very wise in their judgment and understood the hidden subtleties and dynamics that make all the difference. They are wonderful people and were there for us from the beginning to the end. Not only do I highly recommend them, but we will also use them in the future."
