Living In Ballston

Live in Ballston!

As one of the busiest neighborhoods in Arlington, the Ballston real estate market is hyper-competitive.

With an unbeatable location on a metro line, placement right off 395 and close proximity to DC, it’s among the most universally attractive neighborhoods in the DC area. And with such a wide variety of living spaces, there is something available here for everybody. The options are endless, whether you’re a professional looking for a bachelor pad, a single family seeking your first standalone unit, a growing family ready for a new construction, or even if you’re just looking to rent.

But act fast: due to Ballston Commons’ decline, Ballston faced a slight downturn over the past decade compared to the rest of the Orange Line corridor. But with Ballston Quarter projected to be completed within the year, the market is only going to become more and more competitive. Ballston Quarter is going to be a massive boost to the neighborhood.

There is serious potential for the character of New Ballston to resemble a sort of sweet spot between trendy Clarendon and corporate Rosslyn.
