We see you flexing there, Arlington.

The American College of Sports Medicine just released its annual American Fitness Index and… Arlington is the fittest city in the nation. That’s right. Number one, numero uno, the best!

A number of factors went into the ranking, including personal aspects (such as the percentage of folks that bike to work, have exercised in the last 30 days or smoke), environmental components (such as the number of parks per 10,000 residents, bike score and air quality index), recreational facilities and policies/funding supporting a healthy lifestyle.

This ranking is icing on the cake (okay, maybe not the healthiest-sounding analogy) for what we know already: Arlington is an amazing place to call home with the amenities to back it up.

When you’re ready to settle in to a home of your own in our No. 1 ranked community, our team is always ready to help you GET MORE out of your transaction.

Some real estate news that’s relatively hot off the local press — real estate taxes in Arlington County are going up.

ARLnow recently reported that homeowners will soon pay an extra two cents per $100 in assessed value, on top of already increasing values. The dough will be used to provide more than $532 million for Arlington County Public Schools.

So, what does that mean for you, the current homeowner? Well, it’s important to know what your assessed value is and to start saving accordingly. Real estate assessments are public record and may be accessed on the Arlington County website.

As for buyers, you’ll still need a strong negotiating team on your side to save you dough up front… especially knowing that a higher tax awaits.

Spring has sprung, folks. (Well, obviously, since we’re hovering in the upper 70s!)

With the sun radiating and the temps pleasant, April is an awesome month to prime your lawn and garden for the months ahead. And, with a little less than a week left in the month, it’s not too late to get moving.

If you’re in to growing your own veggies, The Old Farmer’s Almanac says that now is the time to plant those beans, beets, corn, potatoes and more in Arlington County. On the lawn front, if you didn’t fertilize in the fall, springtime is a great time for it. And, if you’re way behind, there is no time like the present to get raking!

Curb appeal is vital across the entire real estate landscape — whether you (or your neighbor!) are buying or selling, having your greenery in tip-top shape never hurts.

When you’re ready to GET MORE out of your transaction this spring (or beyond), our team is here for you.

As of April 22, there are 150 detached homes, 21 townhouses and 105 condos for sale throughout Arlington County. In total, 21 homes experienced a price reduction in the past week:

A few days ago, an article on MarketWatch dubbed our real estate as currently being “crazy.”

It’s generally a good crazy, if you own property… and the craziness is still being attributed to Amazon’s HQ2 announcement.

Let’s look at some numbers. The average selling price popped 4.3 percent between March and February… of this year. Yowsers. While there are certainly some price fluctuations throughout the year, prices are up nearly 5 percent year-over-year.

Additionally, the number of active listings and homes sold is down, equating to a 23 percent and 10.4 percent drop year-over-year, respectively.

So, if you’re looking to sell, you are absolutely in the driver seat at the moment. It’s time to make the most of your rosy scenario. And, if you’re buying, it has never been more important to navigate the landscape with caution. While the market may be hot, you need to ensure you’re still getting the most bang for your buck.

These are certainly wild and interesting times in Arlington real estate.

The figures continue to roll in that depict just how significant of an impact that the Amazon HQ2 announcement has had on our local market.

According to the Northern Virginia Association of Realtors and a Washington Post piece that posted just last week, the number of homes under contract in January 2019 was 70 percent higher than January 2018. Additionally, the number of homes for sale fell by 20 percent within that same timeframe.

What does this all mean?

The market is hot. Inventory is limited. And now, more than ever, you need to know exactly what you are getting into, regardless of whether you are buying or selling.

Let’s give you another reason to party here in Arlington. In addition to Arlington already being named the No. 1 city to live in America in 2019, let’s zoom in to another accolade that that affects us all.

The 2019 County Health Ranking Report just came out, outlining how healthy residents are and providing a better understanding of what impacts how long residents will live. The report took into account such factors as access to healthy foods, rates of smoking and obesity and high school graduation rates.

Arlington is the No. 2 healthiest county in the Commonwealth in Virginia, with our friends in Loudon taking home No. 1.

So, let’s keep up the healthiness, my fellow Arlingtonians and here’s to good health for all!

This year sure is flying by, isn’t it?

This marks our last Just Reduced column of March and, bam, April will be here in no time. Speaking of April, it’s an awesome month for some home-related bargains. In addition to typically boasting stellar weather for home viewings, a few household items typically reduced this time of year include:

  • Snow shovels and snow maintenance equipment. The snow is gone (hopefully) and now is the time for winter-related bargains!
  • Cleaning supplies. That’s right, it’s “spring cleaning time” and now is the time to load up on the cleaning supplies for the season (and beyond).
  • Easter-themed items. Easter is April 21 this year and shortly thereafter get ready for related items to be discounted upwards of 80 to 90 percent. Sure, you may not want to hang an Easter bunny all year round, but there may be some nice, non-super-Easter-y things you can snag for a steal.

And, of course, when you’re ready to find your home bargain, our team is always ready to help you GET MORE out of your transaction.

As of March 25, there are 152 detached homes, 19 townhouses and 91 condos for sale throughout Arlington County. In total, 7 homes experienced a price reduction in the past week:

What happens at 5:58 p.m. today?

It’s springtime! Adios Old Man Winter and hello to one of my favorite seasons of the year here in Arlington. Okay, so it looks like we’ll be easing into the spring season with temps in the mid-50s, but still. There are warm and sunny days ahead.

Speaking of sunny days ahead, we’re seeing some significantly discounted homes for this week’s edition of Just Reduced, including a couple options reduced more than $100,000. It looks like some homeowners are starting their spring cleaning a bit early and are looking to sell quickly.

If something catches your fancy or if there is a property you’ve had your eye on for some time, let’s get rolling and GET MORE out of your transaction. Before we know it, the pleasant temps will be gone, the kids will be out of school and a good chunk of folks will be looking for a new home before the next school year.

As of March 18, there are 142 detached homes, 22 townhouses and 94 condos for sale throughout Arlington County. In total, 15 homes experienced a price reduction in the past week:
