Parking space rental information

Parking spaces are usually rented by the month, but some owners will rent weekly. Payment details and parking space numbers are available from each owner. The Eclipse Facebook page and bulletin boards will occasionally have additional parking information.

Other options

Retail parking on P1 (not Harris Teeter) has been free (no towing) to Eclipse residents weekdays from 7pm to 7am and 7pm Fridays until 7am Mondays. This is likely still correct, but it bears checking occasionally with the Rock Crest Group who manage our retail areas: 703 502 9797. Ask for Sue Wisdom.

Commercial parking is available at the Colonial Parking garage through the entrance on 35th Street. When last checked, the monthly charge was $125. Click for a photo of their sign.

$elling an Eclipse Condo?

Let 10,000 Realtors know
that you really DO have a garage!

Here's an important tip for Eclipse sellers: Be sure to ask your Realtor to search for a unit at your address twice and . . .

  1. Enter a 1+ in the "Total Garage Spaces" search criteria box.
  2. In a separate, new search, enter a 1+ in the "# Assigned Parking Spaces" search criteria box.

Your listing should appear in both searches.

Entering a garage into the MLS is so tricky that up to 85% of our condos for sale with an existing garage, do not have it entered correctly. So, someone searching for a condo with a garage (a must-have item for many) will not even see your listing in their search results.

This can be a major problem even if your garage was "entered" into the MLS and might appear elsewhere in some MLS reports or third-party websites. Since well over 95% of homes are sold through the MLS, and all third-party sites (Zillow, Redfin, etcetera, etcetera) get their information from the MLS, showing your garage correctly there is critical. Only a Realtor can check this; you cannot do it online!

A BIG advantage: Parking space flexibility

If you have only one parking space, it will be an advantage if you can offer two spaces to prospective buyers. I have an extra parking space that could be offered to buyers who need two spaces.

If you have two parking spaces it could be to your advantage to offer only one. This could be especially important in negotiating with a buyer who does not want to pay your full asking price. In this event, I would buy your second space, and you could reduce your price accordingly.

Please note that I have experience transferring parking spaces from one Eclipse unit to another.
