Arlington, VA

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, here’s the good news — mortgage rates have never been better!

The 30-year fixed has hit a new low, again breaking the record low that’s been established and reestablished numerous times over the past few months. Existing homeowners — you may be able to refinance with a 15-year mortgage close to 2.5% so this can probably save you serious money and you get to stay put!

As Northern Virginia begins to reopen, we’re seeing more and more in-person open houses scheduled, and expecting traffic to be way up in the coming weeks. The market only cooled slightly the past couple months in terms of volume — expect it to heat up faster than it cooled in coming weeks.

Some not-so-good news if you are a buyer — prices have remained remarkably steady!

Abundant speculation that prices would drop as a result of the pandemic has not rung true. There has indeed been an increase in instances of contracts falling through (previously a very rare occurrence in Arlington) and they were very largely due to financing issues. The housing market will always be a supply/demand equation and the years of pent-up demand in Arlington didn’t evaporate over the past couple months, despite global uncertainty.
