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.

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.

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.
