  • yo yo ma

    artificially inflated prices

    • Henry

      What’s artificially inflating them?

  • SomeGuy

    No “promotion” tag on this one?

    • The open houses highlighted today were selected at random. We’re not getting paid for listing them here.

      • Clarendon

        In the full list, I don’t see a house on Ivy that is open this Sunday


        Is the full list only a subset (people that paid to be listed or something) ?

  • sam

    $214,000 for a tiny condo surrounded by illegals and filled with IKEA furniture? lol

    • Roycroft

      I would have been thrilled to have a place like that when I was starting out.

      • Good Grief


  • South Side Chris

    I never feel as poor as when I look at the Arlington Real Estate Listings. Looking at my checking account this morning I’m all like, “Woooooo I got paid!” Then I look at this and a fat lot of good the paycheck did.

    • South Side Chris

      Or for the love of snot, kitchen at 213 N. Fillmore Street North is the size of my entire home. That’s just wrong.

      • mjw703

        That house at 213 N. Fillmore has been on the market for 476 days according to franklymls.com. That seems even more wrong.

        • Joehoya

          It’s an overpriced Ron Cathell special.

          • TuesdaysChild

            Only “8 blocks” to Clarendon metro!!


          • Win-Win-Win

            Are those ‘regular’ blocks or ‘Josh Ess’ blocks?

  • South Awwlington

    I have to agree that this is an expensive place to live. And seeing houses like this that I want and that I would like to live in drives me to work harder, finish grad school and SAVE MY MONEY. What’s so wrong with that? Is there a shortcut to wealth that my parents didn’t teach me?

    Work hard. Buy what you want. Easy.

    • Corey

      You don’t think there are real structural factors that make it much harder for you to achieve such dreams than your parents did?

      • South Awwlington

        I think the world is a different place now than it was when I was a kid. I also still think dependent on your chosen career path, you have a certain income expectation.

        • Fan tan

          I think Corey’s kids have someplace to be

    • dk

      good luck with that.

      • South Awwlington

        lol – and the alternative would be?

    • drax

      Son, you don’t get it. You’re going to work hard, finish grad school, save your money, and STILL not afford anything close to what you want.

      • South Awwlington

        I’m a daughter. Sexist.

      • dk


  • Kim Kardashian

    There are lots of shortcuts to wealth. Look at me.

  • Tabs

    How does one pronounce “Bichlan”?

    • CW

      I believe it is “bick-lawn”.

    • Richard Cranium

      It’s spelled “Bichlan” but it’s pronounced “Throat Warbler Mangrove.”

      • nom de guerre

        I thought it was spelled “Raymond Luxury Yacht.”

        • Richard Cranium

          +1. And I thought that was a pretty deep geek reference. Not sure who that says more about!

          • nom de guerre

            Sad, but true brah.

  • CW

    Scary that I’ve been immersed in the Arlington bubble long enough that I look at the Key Blvd one and think “Wow, that is a great deal” at $1.075M. But seriously, considering that a 2BR condo an equal distance from the Clarendon metro still runs you $500k plus condo fees that are about the cost of the mortgage on an extra $100k of principal per month.

    I still feel poor though.

  • soarlslacker

    No matter how expensive real estate is in Arl Cty, it is so much better living here then out past the beltway where there is usually no sidewalk to walk on, no bike lane to ride in and metro train to ride on–the car is the only mode of transportation. I can’t understand why folks live out there in the wilderness. Arlington is so very convenient.

    • drax

      Not just better – when you add the cost of transportation out there, it can sometimes be MORE expensive, not less.

  • Cry Cry Cry

    I’m the only one of my friends without a designer handbag or a pair of shoes that cost $1200 just because the soles are red. I buy things on sale. I save money. I own my own home and have since I was 27 by borrowing against my TSP account. If you priorities your spending habits, one can own a home. It might not be the home of your dreams at first, but if you built the equity correctly, you will eventually have it.

  • D’oh

    I’m entitled to a 9-bedroom estate in Beverly Hills, but I don’t make enough money to afford one. I really think I should be able to get one for $100,000, just because that seems subjectively reasonable.

    Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go haggle for an Aston Martin One-77. Dr. Bez is nuts if he thinks he’s getting more than $3,500 from me for it.

  • Douglas Park

    Interesting that the randomly selected properties are all in north Arlington. South Arlington isn’t cheap, but there are more affordable options.

  • Arlingtonian

    Are people going to want to purchase million-dollar homes overlooking henhouses? I suppose someone will!
    Arlington Egg Project … you can’t make this stuff up!

  • tom smart

    I have a couple of homes in Arlington that I’d like to sell. And I would be willing to finance part of the loan if you have a 10-20% down payment. If interested, and serious, with good job and credit let me know. One is on N. Glebe and N. Woodrow ($700s, 5br/3bth with basement rental of probably $800+/mth, http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/2001-N-Glebe-Rd-Arlington-VA-22207/12065682_zpid/) and the other is on N. Pershing near Washington Blvd. (has 4br/3.5bths, 2 car garage and a pool with jacuzzi, walking distance to Clarendon nightlife) ($1.2k). (http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/2619-N-Pershing-Dr-Arlington-VA-22201/12085705_zpid/) We can use your buyer’s agent if you like. But would prefer to avoid using Agents. ([email protected])

    • Win-Win-Win

      Dude – I’ll give you full asking price in cash right now for the one on N. Pershing. Let me know soon because I have to go to the bank to pull out the other $900 – I only have ~$300 on hand at any given moment. But don’t tell Corey – he’ll think that house prices are now affordable.

  • ODCASteve

    I don’t think we need to be taking space on the “homepage” for this. Leave it on the Real Estate page please

  • Elmer

    My buddies and I have a single wide trailer (excuse me, in Arlington Speak that’s a “learning cottage”) that we would like offer. For the right price, we’ll throw in our leaky bass boat, a case of PBR and a rusty ’66 Ford F-100 pick me up truck to tow the boat and haul the soon to be empty beer cans.
