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.

The winter doldrums may have slowed the real estate market, but they haven’t stopped it. There’s still plenty of inventory, like a Courthouse-area condo for less than $350,000 and a four-bedroom Lyon Park home for $1.27 million.

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.

Ho Ho Hum. The Holiday Season is certainly upon us and having its usual impact on the real estate market. This week it is slow.

Only 28 new listings came on the market, and only 19 properties went under contract. This is normally the slowest time of year for real estate. Don’t expect much increased activity until after the New Year. Most of the new listings are condos priced in the low to mid-range ($200,000-$600,000), along with a few townhomes and detached homes.

For those ratified properties, the average days on market has jumped to 70, and the average list price also increased, to $732,000. It’s still a great time to buy while interest rates are low and sellers are willing to negotiate.

For $6,500 a month, Washington Capitals superstar Alexander Ovechkin could be your landlord in Arlington.

Ovechkin’s Arlington house, at 4906 16th Street N, in the Waycroft-Woodlawn neighborhood, is currently listed on the rental market. The four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom single family detached house has been on the market for several weeks, according to Buck & Associates Realtor Billy Buck.

Buck, who confirmed to ARLnow.com that the house is still available as of today, said that length of time on the market is to be expected at this time of year with a lull in the rental market because of the holidays.

The 5,000-square-foot house is described in its listing as having “gleaming hardwood floors” on the main level, a master bedroom with a sitting room and a whirlpool tub and separate shower in the master bath, a rec room with a wet bar and a rear deck. The security deposit is posted as $7,950, and tenants are required to be non-smokers, but pets are allowed.

Ovechkin is listed as the owner of the house, which was built in 2005, on Arlington’s property database. The house and 11,603-square-foot lot was assessed at $1,572,000 by the county last January. Ovechkin purchased a $4.3 million colonial in McLean in 2012.

Happy Thanksgiving! Team Cathell wishes all our readers a joyous and bountiful weekend filled with family, friends, food and fun.

It looks like buyers this week did not get the memo that the Arlington real estate market is supposed to slow down at Thanksgiving. For the second week in a row, buyers have ratified 50 contracts, a significant uptick in activity compared to previous weeks. For whatever reason, there is a heightened sense of urgency now among buyers.

Conditions are optimal right now for buying. Prices have been flat, even weak, since mid-summer. Interest rates continue to bounce at near record lows. Nearly all economic indicators have been trending positively for the last 18 months. And deals can be made out there right now.

The only impediment for buyers is the low inventory. This week just 34 new listings came on the market, which is typical and to be expected at the beginning of the holiday season. Perhaps buyers will step up their shopping for new homes after Black Friday, and sellers will get the memo that it’s a great time to sell.

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.

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.
