My first Ask Eli column was published on November 10 2015 (I introduced myself and explained the Escalation Addendum), exactly five years ago! Since then I’ve accumulated 416 pages in Microsoft Word, nearly 170,000 words, and over 840,000 characters typed!
I want to take a moment to express my appreciation for Scott (Founder), Jordan, Lene, Turquiose and everybody else on the ALRnow/Local New Now team for creating and maintaining such an incredible platform for local news and community discussion. Thank you!
I also want to thank all of the amazing readers and commenters who have made the last five years of writing about Arlington/DMV real estate so rewarding for me. Your feedback, comments, critiques, and questions let me know that I’m not talking into an online abyss Please continue sending me topics or ideas that you’d like me to cover!
For those of you who may have missed my post last week because it was Election Day, I shared a cool interactive chart showing how Arlington real estate has appreciated in value since 2010. You can check out that chart here.
Thank you everybody for following along. Hopefully I’ll get to write a similar ten-year post in November 2025!
