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.”

As expected the week before a long holiday weekend, we saw fewer new listings, numbering only 45. Not a lot of new inventory for eager buyers.

Most of the just listed properties this week are condos with only a few single family detached. In this last week of the summer, we also saw 50 homes go under contract with seven over $1 million. The average list price of ratified contracts is the exact same as last week at $654,000 and average days on market at 37. Typically we can expect to see a jump in new listings right after Labor Day. So next week should be more promising for buyers.

Listing of the week: 1610 N. Queen Street with private elevator and grand views.

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 Arlington real estate market just keeps chugging along, nothing spectacular but nothing horrible either. It remains steady and consistent with 50 new listings coming on the market this last week, only a few of which were over $1 million.

During that time, 53 properties were ratified with an average sales price of $654,000, which includes condos, townhomes and detached homes. But of those, seven were over $1 million signaling a slight improvement in the high end market over the last several weeks.

Also, this week the days on market jumped to 63. This jump was caused by two outlier sales that had been on the market for 510 and 473 days, both well over $1 million, and both ratified after price adjustments. Check out the cute little cottage as listing of the week: 4502 32nd Road N.

The Arlington real estate market continues to be steady and consistent this summer. The numbers this week track almost identically to last week with 61 new listings and 49 properties going under contract.

Of those ratified, only four were over $1 million. Of the new listings, only seven were above $1 million. The last few weeks of August are typically the second slowest time of the year for real estate activity, the Christmas holiday period being the slowest.

Meanwhile, interest rates have remained virtually unchanged, which is great for buyers and anyone needing to refinance before rates start to move later this year. Two interesting new listings to check out: a $3.775 million townhouse on N. Glebe Road overlooking Washington Golf; and a $1.35 million condo on N. Nash Street in Turnberry Towers with wonderful views.

Of the 48 properties that ratified this week in Arlington, only 2 were above $1 million. The mid-range of $400,000-$700,000 was very active with over 30 properties in that range going under contract.

Some 59 new listings came on the market this week, and only 7 were over $1 million. About 60 percent of new listings are condos. The average sales price and days on market remains steady at $556,000 and 39 days. Listing of the week: 1808 S. Lynn Street.

Of all the great quotes from New York Yankees Hall-of-Famer Yogi Berra, this is a favorite: “It’s déjà vu all over again.” (Need a laugh? Just google his quotes.)

The mid-summer real estate market in Arlington is steady and consistent, and pretty much like the early summer. Only 55 new listings came on the market this last week, while buyers ratified 63 contracts. With buyers outpacing sellers, the inventory of available homes is tightening even more.

The days on market dropped slightly to 37, and the most robust price segment is $450,000 to $700,000. Only four homes above $1 million were ratified. Listing of the week: end townhouse for $1.25 million at 2703 11th Street N. behind Clarendon Mall.

The summer real estate market in Arlington is stable and steady. If anything, it is consistent (i.e., a little boring).

This week, 64 new listings came on the market ranging in price from $125,000 to $1.8 million. During that week, some 59 properties went under contract with a similar price range. Of those 59 ratified, eight were over $1 million; 26 were detached homes; 22 were condos; and 11 were townhomes or duplexes. The average days on market for those ratified this week is 40, a slight increase from previous weeks.

The total current active inventory for Arlington now stands at 600, the highest mark so far this year. We started the summer with about 550 active properties. For those actives, the average DOM is 78. What does this all mean? We are in a normal, healthy, steady, sustainable real estate market in Arlington. For now.

Good news for buyers this week: Arlington got a jolt of new listings.

Some 80 properties went on the market this week, outpacing several previous weeks by about 30 percent. A high percentage of those new listings are condos and townhomes. Meanwhile, only 52 homes went under contract, demonstrating that much of the market is on vacation.

Again, many of those homes that sold had been on the market a long time, over 70 days. The average days on market for those that sold this last week increased slightly to 40. The other good news for buyers this week is mortgage interest rates. They jostled around just before last weekend and then settled this week to a six-month low. Jumbo 30-year fixed rates with up to $1 million loan amount are at 3.875 percent. So if you haven’t refinanced already, it’s not too late.
