South Arlington, VA Homes For Sale

From truly spectacular mansions to highly affordable condos and townhouses for sale, South Arlington, VA presents some true targets of opportunity. Like its neighbor to the north, this part of the county is home to numerous neighborhoods with their own unique characteristics. It’s generally considered to lie south of Route 50 and naturally, west of the Potomac River. 

One of the most frequently discussed components of South Arlington is Columbia Pike—a major east-west roadway as well as a corridor that is home to numerous bordering neighborhoods and part of an ambitious revitalization zone—called, appropriately enough, the Columbia Pike Revitalization Organization (CPRO). Homeowners in this area have waited a long time for new mass transit options and the opportunity to get in on this whole Washington Metro real estate boom. The long wait is over.To get a better glimpse of Arlington South, VA homes for sale, give us a call today!

More About the Arlington South Real Estate Market

First, South Arlington isn’t only about the Pike. But, it’s an obvious talking point so let’s mention those specific neighborhoods—Columbia Heights West, Columbia Forest, Claremont, Arlington Heights, Alcova Heights, Barcroft, Douglas Park, Penrose and the small community of Columbia Pike itself. In a nutshell, this area lacked rail transit for a very long time and finally, an electric streetcar system is coming. There’s a lot more to it than that, but suffice to say that new businesses, condo construction and home values in general are quickly accelerating. 

Also worth noting is Pentagon City—an assortment of high-rise office and residential buildings and mall outlets, immediately adjacent the defense department itself. As you might imagine, condos for sale in this community are very popular with Pentagon workers. And just to the east is Crystal City, a remarkably innovative forerunner to the popular “live, work and play” movement, combining subterranean retail and residential superblocks that are home to over 17,000 people!

Arlington South homes for sale have become one of Washington Metro’s fastest moving marketplaces. Prices start around $140,000 for small condos for sale and rise high into the millions for palatial estates. But it’s the middle territory that has created a real buzz, with smaller and mid-sized single-family homes for sale at very competitive prices. The rise in home values has spiked drastically in this sub-market as bargain-seekers snap up Craftsman bungalows, boxy Colonials and cute Cape Cods for affordable rates.

This part of Arlington seemingly has something for everybody, including high-rise luxury condos for sale, antique farmhouses, World War II-vintage garden apartment complexes that have gone condominium and some ridiculously oversized custom homes. This area south of Route 50 is going through a renaissance and that won’t stop anytime soon.
