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.”

Hellooooo inventory! This week unleashed a torrent of fresh new inventory totaling 105 new properties on the market ranging in price from $130,000 to nearly $4 million.

About 40 percent of that inventory is single family detached homes, and the rest is condos and townhomes. Buyers should be thrilled that finally there is fresh product to review. The market typically jumps just after Labor Day, and this year is no exception.

Buyer activity also surged this week with 65 ratified contracts with an average days on market of 36 and average sales price of $657,000. Only three of those ratified contracts were over $1 million indicating the market is still soft in the higher price brackets.

Adding to buyers’ delight is the fact that mortgage interest rates either held steady, or with some types of loans dipped just a little bit. Also good news, lenders are reporting more new loan products are now available for buyers with low down payments. The conditions appear favorable so far this fall for strong buyer activity.

Buyers will be delighted this weekend to see a nice burst of fresh new inventory come on the market. Typically the market gets fresh inventory right after Labor Day weekend, and this year is no exception.

Some 70 new listings came on the market with most in the price range of $350,000–$900,000, and most of those are condos and townhouses. Only six new listings are over $1 million. Also, good news for buyers: interest rates have remained steady, and some types of loans have slightly improved rates.

Meanwhile, this last week following the holiday, only 30 properties went under contract. Not surprising since so many buyers were at the beach or on the river enjoying the last days of summer break. Of those sold this week, only eight were single family homes. All others were condos and townhomes. Next week we are likely to see a spike in ratified contracts, so watch for it.

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.

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 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.
