Here's my newsletter recapping the Arlington residential real-estate market for single-family homes and condos, year to date through April 2019. I try to send this recap out quarterly, but real-estate activity in the first quarter in the calendar year is typically quite slow, with limited data from which to identify trends and patterns.

Because activity picks up significantly in April, that month's data are included in this first recap of the year so we can get more insight into what's been going on.

The top-line summary: Arlington single-family prices were up a bit, condos down a bit, other indicators were mixed, but generally showing a leveling off of the market. It still remains very much a seller's market, with inventory tight and prices at or near historical highs.
