One of the hottest neighborhoods for home sales — After crunching the numbers and ranking subdivisions by the increase in median sales prices, the increase in price per square foot, and other measures, the top areas were ranked. The 2018 median sales price for Reston was $515,000 and homes remained on the market for nine days, with sale price percentage increasing by 8.4 percent. [The Washington Business Journal]

Dog days of summer — The last dog paddle of the season will take place tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Bring your dog for a dip in the pool. Registration is $6 for Reston Association members and $8 for all others. [Reston Association]

Adapted teen tour, ride and dance today — Young adults with special needs and their buddies can take a tour of Frying Pan Farm Park, ride on a wagon and learn how to do “social dancing” at the farm.  Registration is $12. [Fairfax County Government]

    This is a joke about housing prices in Reston. Our townhouse adjacent to South Lakes high school was appraised by Fairfax County for LESS this year than in 2006.

    That’s dead money for a half million dollars. Literally not a penny of appreciation in 12 years.

    It is no wonder that so few homes and condos are being built. And, the 30 year is approaching 5%!
