Houses for Sale in Arlington
Arlington has been a high--growth area of Snohomish county for over 10 years now. When searching for real estate in this area, there isn’t a better place to look for real estate, with a good number of homes and condos available. Arlington is conveniently located near large shopping centers and the I-5 interstate, making it an easy commute to both Bellevue and Seattle.
A number of years ago Arlington seemed to be “way out” there, too far beyond the city and far out into the County, with Arlington houses for sale often sitting on the market for a while. However if you have been watching the last 10-12 years in Arlington, this town has grown tremendously and has become one of the new hot spots in Snohomish County. Situated in northern Washington State and near the Cascade Mountain Range, these homes close enough to Seattle for trouble-free commuting but far enough away to also have your peace and quiet.
Think of it as the “New Snohomish,” packed full of restaurants, a brewery, distillery and other activities for the whole family. North of Everett by about 25 minutes, Seattle by about an hour, and at the foothills of the mountains, the location is definitely hard to beat.
It's also a good time to buy in Arlington. Home Appreciation is up 9.8% in the last 12 months, and the median home price is Arlington about $390,000. Since Arlington is north of Seattle, the quality of life around here is easy going. The weather is generally calm throughout the year. A little snow in the winter, some nice summers, usually not too hot, and overall a very comfortable atmosphere.
Anything a person would want to do is available: mountains for skiing; lakes, the sound, and ocean are close by for water sports; cultural pursuits can be found everywhere. Even though the cost of living is higher, it’s part of the culture around Arlington - the roads are taken care of better than most. Also in this day and age, the economy is hanging in there compared to other parts of the country. Arlington’s crime is also low, which is something to consider when purchasing real estate.
