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 Andors Real Estate Group.

Buyers and sellers both did their parts this week; new listings and ratified contracts are up!

We’re still way behind the numbers from this time last year, but this is a healthy pace for Arlington. We’re hanging just above 1 month of inventory, still an extremely strong seller’s market.

About half of new homes in Arlington go under contract within the first week of marketing. Nearly 25% of the homes go under contract the second week. After that, the market has passed you by and days on market are extremely likely to continue accumulating without a substantial price reduction. The market is specifically interested in new properties.

While Northern Virginia is taking a delayed approach to resuming normal business practices in relation to COVID-19, that has not slowed house-hungry buyers. We may be right around the corner where inventory will start to drop again, as soon as Northern Virginia starts to lift restrictions. This will be an interesting and unprecedented thing to observe in the real estate market. I look forward to keeping you closely informed as to how we see that playing out in the coming weeks.
