What may be a well-kept secret isn’t anymore — one of the hottest neighborhoods in the state, no, the entire U.S. is in Arlington. 

Seriously.

A recent Realtor.com report looked at the most sought-after neighborhoods in the U.S., and — surprise — Arlington’s 76018 zip code was the eighth-most sought-after neighborhood in the country. 

“These are the kind of places where the average buyers don’t need to auction off their first-born child to have enough money to become a homeowner,” Realtor.com said. “Most offer median prices well below the national median list price of $316,000. But buyers had better be quick, because homes in these ZIP codes are selling much faster than the national median of 56 days on the market.”

And that’s true of 76018, too. We took a gander at how many homes were available in the median price for the zip of $215,050, and found a mere 41 listings in the $200,000 to $300,000 range — and several were already under contract.  (more…)
