Just Listed in Arlington

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.”

Some great inventory came on the market this week in Arlington, and ready buyers didn’t hesitate to snatch it up.

Seventy-five homes were listed, 54 were sold and half of those (26) sold within a week on the market. Amazing! That robust activity dropped Arlington’s average days on market to just 12!

It’s a brutal market out there for buyers right now. There were more stories told this week in the hallways of realtor offices of bidding wars, each agent seeming to have an even more incredible story. The houses attracting bidding wars fall into two recurring categories — total fixer uppers priced low and properly priced homes that have been updated and show in pristine condition.

Today’s buyers are highly discerning. They want a home that appears to have just come out of a new wrapper, regardless of its real age. After pushing their maximum buying power, they don’t have any cash left for improvements, and they are anxious about taking on projects for which they know nothing about.

Interest rates bounced higher this week after hitting 18-month lows last week. Rates climbed nearly 1/4% to 4.125%-4.375% for a 30-yr fixed rate. Poor buyers just can’t get a break.

Arlington home owners should feel lucky as their values continue to climb. Far better than Londoners. The average sales price of a home in London has dropped 3.8% in the last three months. Surveys indicate that Londoners are very concerned about how the U.K. will exit the European Union and how that will effect their economy. Now is not a good time to swap for a home in Chelsea.

Validating one’s emotions has the power to heal, transform, and empower. What Is Validation? Every human being has feelings. We all have emotions that change over time, sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. The question isn’t whether we feel; it’s how we handle feelings once they arise.

Building strategies to understand emotions is essential to positive mental health, and validation is one effective skill to practice.

Emotional validation is the process of understanding, embracing, and actively listening to another person’s feelings (or your own).

Understanding someone’s emotions doesn’t necessarily mean you approve of how they are feeling or reacting to something. You can be supportive in acknowledging and validating an emotional experience without agreeing or diminishing it. Validation is a skill to learn and improve over time. It may take practice, but the effort is most certainly worth it. Emotional validation has the power to enhance interpersonal communication and foster strong relationships.
