It's actually $150 cheaper than the spot that I"m at now, add in the lower amount of gas I'm pumping into my SUV and there's a recipe for substational savings.

Of course there's a catch it's much smaller and honestly not as aesthetically pleasing as the spot in Oakton. But the owner agreed to let me use the shed for storage. I can't put my finger on it but I left with a good feeling about the people (and the cute dogs) despite the size of the house. The fact that the price is so low for Arlington was def a selling point.

One day I will indeed have my cake, eat it, and still have room for seconds. I'll have that brand new townhouse inside the beltway at a price I can afford. Not today though but looks like 2010 will get off to a good start. Thanks y'all.
Thanks for the update! I hope your prospective landlord follows through with their renovation plans. Congrats and best of luck to you!
