Just Listed highlights Arlington properties that just came on the market within the past week. This feature is written and sponsored by Andors Real Estate Group.
Despite the gorgeous, warm weather, things have cooled off a bit this spring in the housing market.
This spring in Arlington is a bit more subdued than last year and years prior — no surprise considering a stay at home order. By no means, however, has the Arlington market to come to a halt. You may have heard showings are down — this is true.
That means buyers look at fewer homes before they actually buy, and that casual “lookie-loos” have probably stopped for the time being. You may also see real estate signs in yards for longer — another product of fewer showings and fewer ratified contracts.
As things cool off, just a bit, inventory is starting to creep upward. With this week’s numbers, we now have 1.57 months of inventory — about double from the lows of early February but still way below the national average. Not to worry sellers, that number would need to quadruple before the market was considered to be in equilibrium — something Arlington hasn’t seen in over a decade.
A lot of conversations are centered on the thought that prices in Arlington will go down. I do not believe this to be likely at all. Sellers are holding off on listing their homes and this will actually keep prices steady — supply would need to increase substantially in order to be in line with, or even outpace, demand.
If that happens, then one could reasonably expect prices to be either holding steady or declining slightly. Unlike the stock market, this does not happen overnight, or even in the period of a few weeks — it’s a gradual trend over the course of months and even years.
There are currently 239 homes for sale in Arlington (204 last week). 128 are detached homes, 26 are townhouses/semi-detached and 76 are condos. Average days on market (DOM) is 51, though median DOM (a much more reliable measure for this data set) is only 23.
Sellers listed some 60 properties for sale this week, one more than last week. Buyers ratified 38 contracts, 25 of which were homes that had been on the market one week or less. Activity this week is down on both the supply and demand sides of the equation.
The median list price of available properties is $1,009,998, while the average is $1,153,264. Last year for the same week, sellers listed 75 homes and buyers ratified 54 contracts.

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.
