After an unseasonably frigid week, temperatures are expected to warm up to almost 60 degrees on Sunday. That makes this weekend perhaps the last time in 2014 that going house hunting won’t require several layers to survive.

Just Listed highlights Arlington properties that just came on the market within the past week. This feature is written and sponsored by Team Cathell, “Your Orange Line Specialists.”

The cold weather this week may have discouraged sellers from putting their homes on the market, but it didn’t stop buyers.

Some 51 properties went under contract this week, which demonstrates a healthy market considering it’s the week before Thanksgiving Holiday. The average list price of ratified homes dropped significantly from previous weeks to only $504,000. And the average days on market jumped to 60.

Of the 51 sales, all but one were priced under $1 million. The higher end market continues to be sluggish. But 41 brave sellers listed their homes this week ranging in prices from $145,000 to $1.9 million. Only three of those are priced over $1 million. Check out the listing of the week at 2138 N. Stafford Street, a freshly renovated 1910 farmhouse.

Somehow, the weather went from 70 degrees and gorgeous on Tuesday to a smattering of snowflakes last night. Winter weather appears here to stay, but the real estate market hasn’t slowed at all, meaning there are plenty of chances to see some open houses this weekend.

It seems buyers got the memo that these great interest rates won’t last forever. This week buyers ratified 65 contracts in prices ranging from $113,000 to $2.45 million. That’s three straight weeks of ratified contracts numbering above 60.

Interest rates did tick up slightly, which may have prompted some fence-sitting buyers to commit and sign contracts. Interest rates for 30-year fixed loans are running 4-4.15 percent, up from the 3.97 percent rate of just two weeks ago.

Buyers are also realizing that there are some really good values in the market right now and that they can negotiate on price. Meanwhile, only 48 new listings came on the market this week in Arlington. Some 41 of those are priced below $900,000, most of them condos.

Halloween did not slow down the buyers from finding their new homes this week.

Sixty-seven contracts were ratified, exceeding last week’s 64 (which was a 50 percent increase from the week before). Only three were over $1 million, down from 11 last report. The average list price was $589,093 and average days on market was 51.

It is interesting to note that of the 64 properties, 31 had list price reductions. With rates as low as they are and sellers willing to come down to meet the market, this is an excellent time to buy a home!

Two notable listings are the one at 307 N. Barton Street at $769,900 and 6321 36th Street N. at $1,795,000.

Just Listed highlights Arlington properties that just came on the market within the past week. This feature is written and sponsored by Team Cathell, “Your Orange Line Specialists.”

Clearly buyers got the memo about the recently reduced interest rates and went out this week and ratified 64 contracts, nearly a 50 percent increase over last week. Some 11 of those were priced over $1 million.

That’s a healthy bump for Halloween. Lenders are reporting that jumbo rates (loans over $625,000) are lower than conforming rates for the first time in memory. Meanwhile, home sellers were shy to put their properties on the market this week with only 50 new listings ranging up to $3.6 million.

Two notable picks: check out 612 N. Garfield Street, the new 3-D virtual tour technology; and the $1.3 million condo at 1530 Key Blvd.

Arlington saw only 48 new listings come on the market this week, ranging in price from $155,000 to $2.275 million. The drop in interest rates last week has not inspired buyers this week as only 44 properties went under contract, one sale less than last week’s figure.

Mortgage interest rates have held steady at 4 percent for a 30-year fixed rate loan. Of those properties that sold this week, the average list price was $612,851 and the average days on market jumped to 68. Economists and real estate professionals are scratching their heads wondering why markets across the U.S. and here are so sluggish when interest rates and other economic indicators are trending well.

The big news this week is mortgage interest rates. Buyers will love to hear that the 30-year fixed rate dropped below 4 percent to a national average of 3.97 percent. Turmoil abroad is credited with lowering the rates as scares about Ebola, the Middle East, and economic weakness in Europe have prompted flight of capital to the safety of 10-year US Treasury bonds.

Watch for a spike in buyer activity starting to show up in next week’s data. For those who already own property, this could be a good time to consider refinancing.

Meanwhile, Arlington enjoyed a rush of 79 active new listings this week with a broad variety of types and prices that should give buyers lots to choose from and take advantage of those low rates. Also this week, 45 properties went under contract ranging in price from $180,000 to $2.4 million. The average list price of those ratified is $693,000 and average days on market is 43, an increase prompted by four outlier properties that had been on the market for 10 months. It’s good to see that sellers are listing, and buyers are buying in this busy fall market.

The pace of the Arlington real estate market remains steady, with buyers again this week busily ratifying 56 contracts while 73 home owners put their properties up for sale.

Of the 56 ratified deals, some 38 were condos and townhomes and only seven homes were priced over $1 million. The high ratio of condo sales pulled the average list price of ratified contracts down to $512,000 from the previous week’s average of $766,000. Of those ratified, the average days on market was 42, almost identical to last week’s average DOM.

The total inventory in Arlington of actively available homes stands at 667, providing a good variety of choices for buyers. Mortgage interest rates also dropped this week with a conventional 30-year fixed rate moving from 4.25 percent last week to 4.15 percent this week.
