How much: $2,592,000
When: Saturday, June 16 from 2 to 4 PM
Why: Saying this spot has plenty of room is an understatement. There are six bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms, a rec room, a wrap-around porch, and a patio. It’s new construction, so you don’t need to worry about any fixing-up here—just enjoy the walk-in closets, three garages, soaking tub, custom-cabinetry, and new appliances.

How much: $1,325,000

Why: This end-unit townhouse in Arlington’s Hillcrest neighborhood has four bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, and gets plenty of sunlight. An open floorpan leads you to a high-gloss white kitchen with a breakfast bar, and upstairs, the master bath has a fireplace and walk-in closets.

Brightwood Park

Bonus: There’s a fully-finished basement with an outside entrance, so you could rent it out.

Logan Circle

How much: $799,000
When: Sunday, June 17 from 1 to 4 PM
