Fairfax Real Estate Listings and Information


Fairfax is located just southwest of Cedar Rapids at the crook of two of the area’s most traveled thoroughfares, Highway 151 and Highway 30. This up and coming community is home to a broad range of living styles, creating a perfect place to relocate.

An easily accessed movie theatre, and mall are also located just off the main drag of Williams Blvd (running with Highway 151) offering shopping and nightlife activities.

Education in Fairfax is of highest importance. With the education level of its citizens higher than average, it’s no wonder Fairfax students attend schools in one of the best school districts in Iowa. The College Community School district partners closely with Kirkwood Community College located a stone’s throw away from the k-12 Prairie School complex, to promote a higher degree of education to students throughout their years. Prairie High School participates in the Advanced Placement program letting high school students earn college credits through advanced classes.

Fairfax offers a central location perfect for commuters to Cedar Rapids or Iowa City, with easy access to Highway 30 as well as Interstate 380. Neighborhood access is quick with many homes located close to Williams Blvd (Highway 151) or in sub-developments nearby.
