Hi George

as others have already mentioned it is under contract, but it is a short sale, so the terms could change and the buyer backs out, but we have no way of knowing that at this time. There is anoter 2br unit under contract as well. Please let me know if you would like any assistance finding another unit in this building or in another building.

George: I own a one bedroom unit at 1931 N. Cleveland St. and the tenant is moving toward the middle of April. It is on the third floor, has a recently renovated kitchen and bathroom and is in good condition. I would be willing to sell it if you are interested. Betsy Twigg

As others have noted, it is already under contract. Don't lose hope though -- it's a short sale and frequently short sales get 'boomeranged' back on to the market when frustrated buyers lose patience and back out of the contract. You may end up seeing it back on the market someday soon. Many short sales don't close because the bank won't approve the offer price. Unfortunately there's no way for us to tell whether this one is likely to close or not. Just keep an eye on it though, and as many have offered, you can set up an automated search at any number of websites to look at that building and others nearby. Finding a 2br in that price range in that part of Arlington may be difficult, and you should get your financing lined up to move quickly if you haven't already.

Sorry George - that property is no longer available. Would you like for me to set up an auto search for you in the same building/neighborhood.

Afraid it's not, George. It's currently under contract and nothing else is available in the building as of right now. If this is the type of property you're looking for, however, I can forward similar listings to you if you'd like. You may contact me via my web site link:

HI George,
This one is gone, but there are others that offer similar features and might fit your needs.
I wish that websites would be updated more frequently , so that homes you were interested in, were really available. I'd suggest working with an agent, so you can learn about what's new- in a more direct fashion.
If we can be of help, feel free to email :

Good evening, George:

I'm sorry to tell you that the property in Cleveland House about which you inquired went under contract Feb. 17. At the moment, there are no other units for sale in that building. Are you looking for something to occupy or as an investor? If you're not already working with an agent, I'd be glad to speak with you about how I might be able to help you with a purchase here in Arlington or elsewhere in northern Virginia or D.C.
