There’s no better place to be for July 4 than Arlington, perched above Washington D.C., celebrating America alongside the burial sites of the brave soldiers who gave their lives for our independence.

Enjoy watching the fireworks from your favorite lawn, balcony, rooftop, bridge, or wherever you may find yourself. I’m taking my adorable 3-year-old niece to Iwo Jima to see her first fireworks show, which should be a hit considering how much she loved visiting Gravelly Point to watch the planes land!

I imagine very few people will spend time this afternoon reading about real estate, so I’ll leave you with a reminder that this column is built on questions from you about how the Arlington/D.C. /Northern Virginia real estate market operates. Don’t hesitate to send me your real estate questions and I’ll do my best to offer an honest and informative response.

Happy Fourth of July, friends!
