Mortgage interest rates held steady showing only a tiny drop this week, currently at about 3.65 percent for a 30-year fixed rate. So it’s still a great time to buy in Arlington.

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 pace of Arlington’s real estate market slowed this week, perhaps because spring break has lured many people out of town. Some 68 new listings came on the market this week, compared to 75 last week. And only 64 contracts were ratified this week, compared to 83 last week.

But the average list price of a ratified property increased to $695,000 from $675,000 last week.  Also, the average days on market dropped this week to 38, compared to 45 last week.  Meanwhile, mortgage interest rates nudged slightly higher this week with the 30-year fixed rate at about 3.75 percent.

It’s been a great week for buyers in the Arlington real estate market. Another fresh wave of new inventory has hit the market with 75 new listings ranging in price from $175,000 to $1.6 million. The additional choices inspired buyers to ratify 83 contracts this week, the highest number so far this year.

The average list price of ratified contracts is $675,000 and the average days on market is 45. At this pace, Arlington has only 2.2 months of inventory. Buyers also took advantage this week of a dip in interest rates sparked by Fed comments and the continuous flow of capital from riskier Euro markets to the U.S. and the 10-year Treasury bonds. The 30-year fixed rate dropped this week from 3.75 to 3.7 percent.  It’s a great time to buy property in Arlington.

Is this déjà vu all over again? Didn’t we go through an endless winter last year? This week’s snow storm hasn’t stopped the real estate market in Arlington.

Sellers this week put more properties on the market than any week so far this year with 65 new listings ranging in price from $120,000 to $1.9 million. Buyers should be thrilled with lots of new inventory, mostly condos. With spring officially just two weeks away, buyers this week are not waiting for the cherry blossoms.

They ratified 59 contracts this week ranging from $180,000 to $3.9 million, a glitzy Turnberry Tower condo in Rosslyn. The average list price of ratified contracts was $587,000 and the average days on market was 46.

Interest rates edged a tiny bit lower this week but still hovering right at 3.75 percent for a 30-yearr fixed rate. The mortgage industry has recently seen some new products, and return of some old products as well, such as no-doc loans. If you are a buyer, be sure to ask your lender about new products that might be just right for you.
