  • A. Noyd

    Why do realtors always fail to put the “S” in the street name if it’s South Arlington? Who do they think they’re fooling?

    • ARL-VA

      Not all of the “North” designations are included either.

  • Tom

    Because they were trained selling cars before pursuing a career in real estate.
    Deception is in their blood.

  • GenX

    It’s like a dating site guy who lies about his age by 10 years and says his body type is average when he’s obese. They think you won’t notice when you meet.

    • drax

      612 Jackson Street – it’s big-boned, but it has a nice personality.

      • GenX

        The carpets don’t match the drapes, but it makes me feel good.

        • drax

          You are awarded one-fourth FREDTERP.

  • AV

    Two Arlington Village homes for less than $300K? Another 1 BR went for $325K recently. These ones must be in “original” condition.

    I hate when the shiddie ones go on the market and drag down values of those with beautiful kitchens and other upgrades.

    • FrenchyB

      You’re looking at this the wrong way – the units in need of updating aren’t dragging down the actual resale value of updated units (as evidenced by the $325K sale you mentioned). Rather, it’s decreasing the assessed value set by the county for property tax purposes – thus lowering your property taxes.

    • drax

      Live by the free market, die by the free market.

    • CW

      $280k for a 738 sqft 1B/1BA, circa 1940, probably loaded with asbestos and lead pipes, in a less than desirable neighborhood and you’re worring about erosion of property values? Only in Arlington.

      P.S., although I wouldn’t call this one “beautiful”, owing largely to the weird angled island, the kitchen has been reno’d.

      • AV

        AV is a great place to live. People move to AV, and most stay (it gets too small for couples once a baby leads to another baby).

        My lender was astounded at how healthy the association’s finances were, and at the favorable own-to-rent ratio.

  • novasteve

    2 milion for a condo? I didn’t realize that you had status freaks so delusional they think they’re in Park Avenue here.

    • Fuzzy

      That is one sweet condo though

    • Coran

      Seems okay to grow up and buy something nice.

    • Turnberry Resident

      Don’t hate because you can’t afford a place. BTW, that condo on Park Ave would probably be $10 million, not 2.

      • AL

        The average price per SF in Manhattan is something like $1300/SF. This condo is practically $1000/SF. Why do they think they can command those sorts of prices? It doesn’t even look that great! Look at those horrific toilets and purple rooms!

        • AV

          I think it’s hideous. Definitely Kardashian-worthy.

  • Ryan

    AV, when the lower priced, “original” units go on the market, they are often upgraded by the new buyers. This increases their resale value and and boosts the overall quality of the Village. The inverse of your statement is in fact true. It’s the upgraded units that bring UP the price of units needing upgrades. So, I blame my high rent on your fancy countertops.

    • AV

      You’re right–I couldn’t get much more in rent than the shitebox rental next door.

  • JHelen

    One reason the direction may not be here is because in the MLS it’s done for Realtors. Laziness my guess!

    • FrenchyB

      A perfectly rational explanation. Unfortunately, those are against the rules here on the interwebs 😉

    • Ben Olson

      That’s the first time I heard of it!
