The city of Alexandria has been fortunate not to have been ravished by foreclosures in the past few years.   This does not mean there are absolutely no foreclosures;  even today, there are a few out there.   By few, I mean 6, ranging  in price from $135,000 to $704,900 and with an average days on...
