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 buyers were treated this week to a record rush of inventory with 95 listed properties at all price points and locations. It’s the most new listings in a single week so far this year.

The current inventory of available homes in Arlington is the best so far this year with 643 choices for buyers. But the pace of sales slacked off considerably this week, with only 68 homes going under contract. The average days on market dropped to 32, and the average list price of ratified homes stands at $629,000.

The bigger news this week is the sharp uptick in mortgage rates, jumping from an average of 3.8 percent last week for a 30-year fixed rate, to 3.92 percent this week. Creeping rates slowly erode buyers’ purchasing power. If you are a fence-sitter about whether to buy, get off! Buy now!

Arlington buyers continue to rack up a high volume of sales, but sellers appear a little shyer about putting their homes on the market this week.

The pace of ratified contracts remains hot with 83 properties going under contract this week ranging in price from $140,000 to $1.35 million. Only nine of those were over $1 million indicating a softening in the higher-end market. The average days on market this week jumped to 52 due primarily to two outliers, one on the market for a year and another for nearly three years.

Meanwhile, 74 fresh new listings came on the market this week, priced $155,000 to $1.9 million. Interest rates inched up a few basis points as well, now at about 3.8 percent for a 30-year fixed rate.

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.
