Spotlight: Arlington HOMES of the Week

T-minus one month until the Vernal Equinox! That means equal hours for day and night, with sunrise at 6:01, and sunset at 6:15. So theoretically you can have both your breakfast and dinner during daylight hours.

It's time to shake off the winter cobwebs and get down to the business of finding a home!

According to CNBC, the cost of owning a home is set to spike in 2014 with rising interest rates. But don't despair, according to Zillow's chief economist, Stan Humphries, "As the market shakes off a long winter and gears up for the spring season, we should see buyers gaining a bit more leverage this year than they've had in the past, with more choice and less competition."

Here are two fantastic homes of the week that will shed a little sunshine into your home search!

102 George Street, Arlington 102George

Offered for sale by the original owners this is not your typical Cape-style home. Perfectly situated on a very private lot, this home is located close to the Dallin School.
