Asked by Br, Arlington, VA • Fri Jun 13, 2008
First off let me say that I DO NOT want a real estate agent at this time, I already have 2 really great ones. I have a 40 year old 1 bedroom condo in the Pentagon City area. The exterior is getting renovated and I hope that in about a year when they finish the renovation I will be able to recoop for the price I bought it for in '05. According to Trulia, Arlington 1br units are still selling for an average of almost $500/sq ft which is great, prices have steadily increased based on the number of home sales dating back to 2000, even with this "declining market". I bought this place because of its proximity to DC and walking distance to metrorail.
Having said that, if I rent this out, it may not be for the full cost of my mortgage and condo fees (probably about $200 short), but if I sell the unit for what I got it for in '05 isn't that better?
