In this week's Above Asking, we highlight two listings that recently sold for premiums above their list price. 


Arlington Four-Bedroom Fetches $70,000 Premium

This four-bedroom Arlington home found a buyer in just 72 hours and closed a few days ago for $70,000 above its original list price. The house features an entry hall, two bedrooms with a Jack and Jill bathroom and an open concept kitchen that expands into a dining/living space with French doors that open to a rear deck. Upstairs, the main suite features a small walk-out patio, a fireplace, a massive walk-in closet and an en-suite bathroom with a double vanity sink and glass tiling accents. An open space on this level would make for a great office, complete with built-in shelving. The backyard includes a garage converted to a gym and a spacious grassy area. An unfinished basement could be renovated into extra living space.
