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.”
Even in the holiday season, people still need to buy and sell homes. Between shopping and hanging decorations, 34 buyers ratified contracts this week while 28 sellers listed their homes for sale. Arlington’s real estate market just never stops. Of the 34 homes sold, seven sold within a week and six sold for $1 million or more.
Interest rates remained virtually unchanged with just a slight drop by two basis points to 3.98% for a 30-yr fixed rate. The Fed raised its short term rate for only the third time in 2017 to 1.5%. This doesn’t directly affect mortgage rates, but it does affect consumer rates like credit card debt.
The elephant in the room this week effecting the housing market is the latest tax reform plan in Congress. The House and Senate have reached a compromise plan that could be put to a vote next week. Key elements are:
— Allow mortgage interest deduction up to $750,000 debt on owner occupied home
— Double the estate tax exemption up to $11.2 million
— Keep deductions for medical expenses and student loan interest
— Keep deductions for teacher expenses for school supplies

Signature Theatre just released single tickets for all 33rd season productions, which highlights the organization’s long-time relationship with legendary composer Stephen Sondheim. Beginning with the musical adaptation of The Color Purple and irreverent No Place to Go, the season continues with three Sondheim musicals, the DC premieres of Off-Broadway hit Which Way to the Stage and Pulitzer Prize finalist Selling Kabul, the Tony Award®-winning rock musical Passing Strange, and return of Signature’s cabaret series honoring legendary artists.
“Last November, the world lost an icon. The death of Stephen Sondheim was a blow to everyone in the theater community. Signature Theatre would not be the same without Sondheim — he IS Signature’s ‘signature.’ This season, we are honoring the legend with productions of Into the Woods, Pacific Overtures and Sweeney Todd dedicated to his memory. These shows represent the diversity and range of Sondheim,” said Signature’s Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner about the new season.
