Just Listed highlights Arlington properties that just came on the market within the past week. This feature is written and sponsored by Andors Real Estate Group.
Unlike last year, our fall market is off to a great start, and it really never slowed at the end of summer.
Bolstered by low interest rates and a high level of white-collar jobs that allow remote work during the pandemic, Arlington continues the hustle and bustle. Despite inventory growing slowly and steadily, we’re still a strong seller’s market and I see nothing on the horizon that will change that.
A topic we haven’t talked about much is condo fees, but it makes sense to visit this subject briefly, considering around 60% of our inventory in Arlington has condominium ownership. As a reminder, a condo is a method of ownership, meaning you own your unit and a shared interest in the common spaces such as pools, parking lots, tennis courts, etc., and are bound by the rules, bylaws and covenants established and maintained by unit owners through a condo board — perhaps one of the smallest examples of a local government. You have access to those amenities through your ownership and payment of the association’s fees.
Condos can look like townhomes, high rises, garden style buildings and even appear as semi-detached homes. Monthly fees in Arlington vary widely, with some in the $200 range and not providing much in the way of amenities, to buildings that include all utilities, have 24-hour concierge and a wide variety of amenities and conveniences. The latter can run you towards $1,000+ in Arlington, but the average falls somewhere in the $400-$600 range depending on the amenities included.
Condo fees increase over time, sometimes the result of unexpected maintenance, or increases in costs of contracts and services such as landscaping, lifeguards or snow removal. Fees rarely decrease, and there are often rules contained in the individual organization placing a cap on how much they can increase year to year.
Townhomes are sometimes condo ownership, but more frequently part of a homeowner’s association (HOA) — and HOAs typically have much lower fees than condos. Usually there aren’t many utilities included; they don’t have elevators or other costly systems to maintain and the function of an HOA is more limited in scope, generally to architectural rules, landscaping and perhaps a pool or tennis courts.
We don’t have many examples of single-family homes belonging to HOAs in Arlington, but as you venture farther outside the metro area, this becomes much more prevalent from tract-development housing.

Synetic Theater Camps are a wildly fun, highly accessible choice for young people who love moving, playing games, and making memories. Registration is open now for Summer Camps (sessions June 20-August 25) and there are even a few spots left for Spring Break camp, April 3-7.
Located in National Landing, these performance-based camps are designed for students of all ages – no theater or performance experience required.
Led by professional teaching artists, campers learn acting, movement, and technical theater skills through the lens of Physical Theater. Physical Theater incorporates acting, movement, dance, mime, and acrobatics. If you’ve seen a Cirque du Soleil performance, you’ll find many similarities.
Most first-time campers are new to the performing arts, and teaching artists are well-versed in engaging students at all levels. Parents and campers report that one of the best parts of Synetic is the community, with many families returning year after year because they feel a strong sense of belonging.
