Top 5 Best Value Homes for Sale in Arlington Right Now

Last week we took a look at the top five condos in Arlington that provided the best value for purchasers. Today we’re going to be looking at the top five houses in Arlington that offer the best value for those looking to purchase a single-family home.

These houses are in order from five to one, but if they’ve made this list out of the 300+ homes for sale in Arlington, you can bet that they’re all pretty good deal.

Let’s start with number five:

5. 2632 Sycamore St – 4 Bed 2 Bath – $645,900

2632 Sycamore st exterior

Normally, it’s best to avoid homes that are on a busy street. However, when a home is located in a neighborhood with lots of new construction and the location is walkable to Metro, you are allowed to make exceptions. 2632 Sycamore Street has 4 beds, 2 baths and a large fully fenced-in backyard with multiple gardening areas, a yard, and a storage shed.

The inside, while on the smaller side at 1,092 square feet plus the basement, features an updated kitchen, covered screen porch, and hardwood floors throughout. The home even includes a 1 bedroom 1 bathroom rental in the basement for an owner who is looking to help offset the mortgage payment.

4. 1701 S Monroe St – 4 Bed 2 Bath – $699,000

The Douglas Park neighborhood has risen dramatically in popularity over the past few years and there are no signs of that trend slowing down anytime soon. This home has a great location within the neighborhood as it is located on the corner of 17th Street South and Monroe Street and the house is just a short walk to the shops and restaurants along Columbia Pike.

The home features over 2,000 square feet of finished living space that includes a gourmet kitchen, a large living space, and a wet bar in the finished basement. With all the upgrades that have been done throughout the years, not much work needs to be done to this move-in ready 4 bedroom 3 bathroom residence.

3. 5400 10th St N – 3 Bed 3 Bath – $699,900

5400 10th St

Location always wins. This 3 bedroom rambler in Lacey Forest has an excellent location just west of George Mason Drive and a few blocks from Lacey Woods Park. The home features a fully-renovated kitchen, hardwood floors and great usable space in the basement which is mostly above-ground.

The home also has a nice yard off to the side (and in front) of the home. One downside is that home is along Harrison Street, which is notorious for cut-through traffic. There are a handful of trees and shrubs that will help with noise, but you may still hear more traffic than you would like.

2. 3931 Chesterbrook Road – 4 Bed 3.5 Bath – $849,000

3931 Chesterbrook

This home will have just about the best lot you can ask for at this price point. There is a large front lawn, driveway, garage, back patio, and finally a large back yard that is fully fenced-in.

The home is not perfect and it will need some immediate upgrades. 3931 Chesterbrook is located in Golf Club Manor which is full of homes priced at $1.5M and higher. It should be expected that a home priced at almost half that will need some work.

Never buy the best house in the neighborhood. Buy a mediocre house on a nice lot that needs work. You’re going to want to update the kitchen. You’re going to want to renovate the bathroom. You’re going to want to throw up when you see the dining room wallpaper. But nothing can duplicate a great location. Put in the work.

1. 5106 25th Pl N – 4 Bed 3.5 Bath – $900,000

5106 25th Pl

The home that tops our list is a nicely updated cape cod on a quiet cul-de-sac in north Arlington. Walkable to Yorktown High School and the Lee Harrison Shopping Center, this Garden City four-bedroom residence is in a highly-sought after location.

The home features an open kitchen, a formal dining room, a large master bedroom, and hardwood floors throughout. The outdoor area has a patio, a yard, and a fully fenced-in backyard.

This home has just the right amount of upgrades in an A+ location at a price that is still reasonable for the area, schools, and walkable neighborhood amenities.
