    Arlington real estate market rebounds!

    Arlington Real Estate Market Report

    Here’s a snapshot of what’s going on in the real estate market in Arlington VA as of April 28, 2010.  The median price of homes sold increased sharply after March and at the same time the average number of days on the market decreased. This is a strong indicator that the market is recovering.  As we approach the end of the first-time homebuyer’s tax credit, we’ll see if this is a trend or if this is capturing sales that would have occurred in June anyway.
