Metro Stop Real Estate at 30% Premium in Arlington

December 11, 2013

It’s no surprise that real estate closer to Metro stops is more valuable, but what may be surprising is for how high a price such properties can be sold. Looking at the five stations along the Orange Line’s Rosslyn-Ballston corridor — which is deemed one of the hot areas for development — researchers found that properties one-twentieth of a mile from a station (264 feet) can fetch more than a 30 percent premium over those just a quarter mile away.
