The Amazon Effect: House Hunting in the DC Area’s Hottest Zip Code

The hottest zipcode in the  DMV just might be 22202, the soon-to-be site of Amazon’s HQ2 at National Landing.

Amazon’s move into Arlington County is a big deal for both buyers and sellers in the housing market. Amazon says it will hire 25,000 employees over the next decade. And while demand for housing in that area is high, inventory is low. The day we went looking, there were just 11 listings on Bright MLS.

We went house-hunting in the area, viewing a condo, a townhouse and a single-family home, to see just what’s available and at what price point. Here’s what we found.

Condo: 2BD, 2BA: $650,000

First up is a condo at 3600 S. Glebe Road. With two bedrooms, two bathrooms and just over 1,000 square feet, it’s listed at $650,000. It comes with 24-hour concierge service, a gym, a pool and sweeping city views.  Ashleigh Wehmeyer with Compass realty is the listing agent on this property. She says the seller now has a long-term renter and thinks it would be great for an investor.

Single-Family Home: 4BD, 3.5BA: $1.2 Million

The largest property and the most recently renovated is a home at 2710 S. Arlington Ridge Road, in the coveted Arlington Ridge area. The home includes four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms and a finished basement. It’s decked out with the most current trends and is priced just under $1.2 million. Justin Powers of Rosemont Real Estate is both the developer and the listing agent on the property.
