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.”

Perhaps last week’s surge of ratified contracts has lured sellers this week to brave the snow and cold and put their properties on the market.

Some 54 new listings just came of the market this week, ranging in price from $212,000 to $2.3 million. Nearly 65 percent of those listings are condos and the remainder are about an even number of townhouses and detached homes. The same number of properties were sold this week. Exactly 54 contracts were ratified, demonstrating the buyers know it’s a good time to buy.

The Federal Reserve chairwoman’s comments this week that short-term rates would stay unchanged surprised the markets, and resulted in mortgage rates remaining steady at about 3.75 percent for a 30-year fixed rate in our area. But, the average days on market this week droped significantly to 35, indicating a hot hot market that will push prices up from bidding wars. For buyers, there’s no time to waste in finding a home.

Listing of the week:  430 N. Jackson St.; and click on the new high tech 3-D virtual tour for a tech treat.

(Updated at 3:10 p.m.) Record-breaking cold may be putting the chill into sellers this week, but there are still homes like a two-bed, two-and-a-half bath condo for $429,000 and a 5-bedroom single-family in Bluemont for $1.45 million to check out this weekend.

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.”

Arlington’s sub-freezing temperatures seem to have kept sellers from listing their properties this week. Only 46 brave sellers put their homes on the market, ranging in price from $159,000 to $1.95 million.

But the weather hasn’t stopped the buyers. They are not waiting for the daffodils and tulips to bloom before coming out to buy. This week buyers ratified contracts on 58 properties of all types up to $1.9 million. The higher end market saw eight homes sell for over $1 million. Of those ratified, the average list price was $652,000 and the average days on market dropped to 50. This is another indication that the spring real estate market is here, even though it doesn’t feel like spring with our freezing weather.

Listing of the week: 114 N. Cleveland Street, already renovated and walk to Clarendon.

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 volume of ratified contracts this week outpaced the volume of fresh new listings. Buyers came out and ratified 61 contracts, while only 50 sellers put their homes on the market this week. Most of those new listings are condos ranging in price from $165,000 to $1.1 million.

Arlington is still struggling with low inventory, but the spring market has certainly started for buyers with multiple offers on many of those transactions this week. Average days on market has dropped to 54, and the average list price of those ratified this week is $599,000. Interest rates have held steady, still hovering at 3.7 percent for a 30-year fixed rate.

Hoo-wee! The inventory has started pouring in this week in Arlington. The spring market has definitely begun.

Some 75 new listings hit the market this week in all price ranges from $165,000 to $3 million, and all types of homes and all locations. The average list price jumped to $752,000.

The buyers have responded with this uptick in choices by ratifying 55 contracts this week with an average list price of $707,000 and 60 days on the market. Many of the sold homes this week were on the market for only a few days. Mortgage interest rates are cooperating, with the average 30-year fixed rate dropping this week to 3.6 percent. It’s a great time to buy!

The cold weather hasn’t kept the buyers away, but it seems to have intimidated the sellers. Only 34 new listings came on the market this week, all but one under $1 million.

Some 80 percent of those listings are condos spread evenly in north and south Arlington. Buyers this week were busy ratifying contracts on 44 properties priced from $129,000 to $2.2 million. The average days on market has dropped slightly to 67, and the average list price of those ratified is $573,000.

The interest rate on a 30-year fixed rate loan remains hovering at 3.7 percent and is expected to stay unchanged for some time even though the Federal Reserve has signaled that it will raise its short term rate starting sometime this year.

The inventory of Arlington homes for sale jumped by 51 this week as owners decided it is time to sell. That’s the biggest weekly increase since last fall. All but four of those new listings are under $1 million.

Buyer activity also surged this week, with 47 properties going under contract ranging in price from $175,000 to $2.2 million. Only five of those sales were over $1 million. The mid to lower price points in Arlington continue to be robust. Buyers right now are taking advantage of the combination of low interest rates — this week at 3.7 percent for 30-year fixed — and the remnants of flat prices left over from the fall-winter market. With this level of renewed activity, keep an eye out for prices to start increasing soon.

Listing of the week: 2008 N. Brandywine Street. Good value, and check out the hottest new super high def 3-D virtual tour “Nubefin.”
