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.”

This week has been one of the most quiet weeks of the year for real estate activity in Arlington.

The summer doldrums finally kicked in. Sellers did their part listing 43 properties, but buyers ratified only 31 contracts. They must still be at the beach.

There’s only 10 more days before the fall market begins right after Labor Day. That will usher in lots of fresh new inventory, but also many more buyers so we will likely start to see competitive bidding again.

Interest rates dropped another 1/8th% to 3.5% this week, the lowest rates since 2011. So buyers have a window of opportunity over the next 10 days to ratify and lock in a great rate before the buyer frenzy starts and they lose their negotiating power.

With these low interest rates, you may consider refinancing your existing loan. If you can lower your rate by 5/8th% or more, it’s definitely worth talking to a reputable lender who can help you analyze your cost/benefit and breakeven point.

A home safety travel trip: If you’re going to be gone more than four days for vacation, turn off your water main valve. Water appliances like refrigerators or dishwashers seem to always time their failures when the owner is away. The owner returns to a watery mess costing thousands in repairs and hours of hassle.

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.
