Happy August Everyone!  Hope you are having a great summer!


If you own a Home in Arlington, August is a very happy time for you. Based on newly released economic data from MLS-PIN with a year-over-year comparison of the 2nd Quarter, home prices are up 32.7%(!!!) in the 02474 zip code and 7.7% in the 02476 zip code. If you have been on the fence about selling now is a great time. If you would like an update on the value of your home just let me know and I will provide you with a complimentary Home Value Analysis.
