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.”

Arlington’s real estate market is starting to show the expected signs of a summer slow down, but many buyers didn’t get the memo and kept up the pace this week.

They ratified 63 contracts compared to typically 50-55 sales a week in the summer. By contrast sellers only added another 42 fresh listings to the inventory. Some 20 of those got snatched up in less than seven days, mostly in price points under $750,000.

This has caused the total inventory to shrink to just 250 homes actively for sale. At this week’s pace of sales, all inventory would be sold in just 1 month which is considered very low. Any sellers on the fence about when to put their home on the market should consider listing now.

Mortgage rates continue to hold to near three year lows with this week’s rates at 3.88% for a 30-yr fixed rate with no points.

The summer’s afternoon thunderstorms are causing falling trees or branches to become an issue for many homeowners. The big question we hear: Who is responsible for maintenance, and damages caused?

In Arlington, you have the right to trim any trees or branches that come across your property line. You can trim up to the property line, but not beyond. Any property damage caused should be covered by the hazard insurance of the damaged party regardless of the origin of the tree. There can be exceptions if a property owner serves notice to a neighbor about a risky tree. In such a situation, you are advised to get advice from legal counsel.

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.
