The Arlington condo market is really hot!  Condos are selling throughout Arlington with multiple offers and the inventory is very low.  Here's some stats about Arlington Virginia condominium sales and inventory for February 2012.

arlington virginia real estate: How Do They Afford Those Big Homes? - 06/20/11 10:15 AM
The two real estate offices that I manage are located in Arlington and McLean, Virginia, two quite wealthy suburbs of Washington D.C.  When working with buyers in Northern Virginia, no matter what price range we're looking in, we inevitably drive past some very large, very expensive homes.  After all, in McLean, over 2/3 of the homes on the market are priced at over $1 million.  If you drive just down the street to Great Falls, Virginia, most of the large homes are on some acreage -- often 3-5 acres or more
A lot of clients will ask me: "How do 'they' … (6 comments)

What's Happening today in the Arlington, Virginia Real Estate Market?
The chart below details all of the closed home sales activity in Arlington, Virginia for April 2011:

Sales volume for April 2011 was down significantly in terms of number of sales and in total closed dollar volume comparing April 2011 with April 2010.  This is due in large part to the increased 2010 activity due to the federal homebuyer tax credit last year which expired at the end of April 2010 thus driving many buyers to try to purchase their home before the deadline so they could get the $8000 tax credit.

Are you thinking about buying a home?  Perhaps a townhouse, a condo, or a single family home.  You've been watching the market for a while and think now might be the right time.  Tired of writing that rent check each month, with nothing to show for it and not even being able to paint the walls in your apartment?  Maybe you just completed your taxes and realize that you don't have enough tax deductions.
These are just a few of the reasons that now might be the right time for you to buy a home.

arlington virginia real estate: Arlington Virginia is NOT a Foreclosure "Hotspot": Neither is the Rest of Northern Virginia and D.C. - 02/14/11 02:18 PM
Look around real estate these days and you know that foreclosures are a constant hot topic.
You hear about it on the news.  It's discussed almost constantly.  Where are the foreclosures?  How many Americans are underwater on their mortgages?  Is the foreclosure moratorium in effect?  Is it over?  Is their a shadow foreclosure inventory?  What are the problems in the banks' handling of foreclosures?
Today, CNNMoney has an article detailing 10 foreclosure hotspots.  Take a look at this list out of curiosity.
I'm happy to report that neither Arlington, Virginia, nor any area of Northern Virginia or Washington D.C. made this … (2 comments)

arlington virginia real estate: What do these Arlington Virginia stores have in common? An elevator ride away - 11/11/10 03:57 PM
Ship a package, make photocopies, pick up some lunch or dinner, relax your aching back with a massage, buy some fresh milk and grocries, and finally kick back with a cold beer. 
How's that sound?  Like "living the dream", right?
You can do all that and more when you purchase the wonderful condo that I have listed for sale at The Eclipse in Arlington.

arlington virginia real estate: Did Someone Tell You Home Prices Are Still Going Down? They're Obviously Not Talking About Arlington Virginia! - 10/25/10 05:41 PM
Where do you get your real estate information?  From the newspaper?  From your friends & family?  From television?  Internet?  Strangers on the street?  Your 2nd cousin who just bought a house?  When it comes to up-to-date local real estate market information and statistics, you're doing yourself a disfavor if you don't pay attention to your local professional REALTOR. 
You've no doubt heard the commercials:  "Every market is different.  Consult a REALTOR in your local market."  It's not only a marketing slogan for the National Association of REALTORS, but it is good advice!
