Arlington Ridge Road traces the crest of Arlington Ridge, a steep rise of land that parallels the Potomac in Virginia. This the same geographic feature that creates the bluffs in Mclean and the rise of land through Arlington National Cemetery. Throughout Northern Virginia, this rise of land is home to some of the most desirable land in the Metro area and the neighborhood around Arlington Ridge Road is no exception.
Residences here have easy access to DC, Arlington and Alexandria because of both the road network and the neighborhood itself. In addition to easy access to thoroughfares like Rt. 1, I-395 and Army Navy Drive, this old neighborhood has plenty of back streets and cross-streets to help avoid trouble when things back up. In addition because this is an older neighborhood, it’s generally very low density.
The homes in this neighborhood often have sweeping lawns with mature and towering hardwoods. Many of these homes were built as summer get-aways for old-time Washington DC. Some were not much more than simple cottages. Some are spacious lodges. Many of these homes have had extensive renovations and additions. A good many have been replaced entirely by stately manor homes that speak to the affluence and prestige of this community.
The real estate here is among the priciest in Northern Virginia, but if you’re seeking convenience, elegance and a quiet neighborhood, it’s really tough to beat Arlington Ridge.
When I’m talking to clients about real estate, I find that the biggest difference between a house and a home—or a condo and a home—is that a home is where you live or where you will live.
A house (or condo) is where the other guy lives. When a potential client refers to a property as a home, there is a good chance that the client is considering buying the property. When a client refers to his own home as a home, he indicates an emotional attachment to the property that may make it hard to think rationally when considering all factors regarding the sale of this marketable commodity. If you think of your home as a house or just a condo, then you’re already emotionally ready to move on to the next place.

Real estate investors worldwide are convinced the market is at or near bottom and about to shoot up, according the Colliers International’s first survey of global investor sentiment.
Investors from Asia, Canada, Latin America, and Western European say financing is increasingly available, while investors in the Middle East and Eastern Europe make the opposite observation.
While there was considerable disagreement about what “normal” is, the majority of respondents say their respective markets will return to “normal” within 18 months.
Globally, rents are anticipated to hit bottom this year – the first quarter of 2010 for the office sector was the most frequently offered response, followed by the second quarter of 2010 for industrial, and the third or fourth quarter of 2010 for retail.
