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 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.”

Special Note: Team Cathell and Intercoastal Mortgage Company are pleased to invite you to a home buyers seminar on Monday, Jan. 26, 7:00-7:45 p.m. at the Lyon Village Community Center (1920 N. Highland Street). We will cover the home buying process from start to finish, and how to prepare for the biggest financial decision of your life. Please RSVP via email or on our Facebook page to ensure we have enough materials.

A top-floor Turnberry Tower apartment, Arlington’s tallest current residential building and one of its most expensive, has been named one of the 10 “most impressive penthouses of the year” by CNBC.

“This penthouse in Turnberry Tower is in easy commuting distance to D.C. but away from the bustle of the city with views of the Virginia countryside,” CNBC writes in its post. “It has high-end touches like hickory floors, Snaidero cabinetry and electronic shades and draperies. A private elevator and wrap around balcony complete the luxurious picture.”

The penthouse is available for rent for $10,000 a month, according to real estate listing service MRIS Homes. Turnberry Tower is a condominium building, and it’s sold out, according to its website. A penthouse apartment in the building sold for $4.2 million in 2012.

The apartment has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and covers 2,039-square-feet. Whoever rents the apartment also gets access to Turnberry’s rooftop patio, indoor pool, theater and party room.

The Arlington market is starting out the New Year with promise. Some 27 new listings hit the market this week ranging in price from $200,000 to $2.2 million.

Buyers were active as well ratifying 25 contracts. That’s a pretty good start for 2015. The market remains favorable to buyers with interest rates still sitting at near record lows. It’s still a great time to buy.

Happy New Year! Team Cathell wishes you a happy and prosperous 2015.

It was a very slow real estate market this week in Arlington, as should be expected for the week between Christmas and New Years. Only two new listings came on the market and 16 properties went under contract. We have listed below eight recent listings that came on the market within the last 15 days. Best wishes for the New Year.

Arlington median home price chart (image via MRIS)The median cost of a home in Arlington hit $590,000 in November, the highest on record according to a real estate data firm.

The median price of a home is up 18.4 percent over last year, according to MRIS, signally Arlington’s strong housing market is only getting stronger.

“All the numbers suggest that the already-strong interest in Arlington has grown substantially, even in just the past year or two,” MRIS says on its blog. “Which means this spring should have even more momentum for buyers moving into the area.”

November’s record high price came from 182 sales. There are 2.4 months of housing supply on the market — more signs that it’s better to be a seller than a buyer in the county — and, as of earlier this month, 536 homes for sale.

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.”

In this week before Christmas, there were very few new listings. In all of Arlington, only 19 sellers put their properties on the market this week with nearly all of them being condos.

But surprisingly buyers were active and ratified 27 contracts, four of which were over $1 million. The window of opportunity for buyers may not last too much longer as Federal Reserve policy is expected to change slightly in the coming months, and Russia’s move to bolster the ruble by raising interest rates will have a ripple effect in Europe.

Home buyers proved ’tis the season for shopping this week by ratifying 33 contracts. That is a very healthy and robust number for the holiday season.

Buyers clearly outpaced sellers this week with only 25 new listings going on the market, most of them being condos. The market right now still favors buyers with low interest rates and opportunities for negotiating great deals. The listing of the week:  309 N. Fillmore Street in Clarendon, an ultra-contemporary spec sale.
