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.
Good morning Arlingtonians, and welcome to JUST LISTED!
As expected, the Arlington real estate took a bit of a nap over the week surrounding the Fourth of July. The fireworks, barbecues, gorgeous weather and maybe even the tornado (!) collectively took people’s minds from real estate briefly. As is typical after a brief pullback, expect next week’s numbers to strengthen a bit, with more ratified contracts than this current week.
Sellers have been consistently doing their part in listing homes and freshening up the inventory weekly. Buyer demand is a bit more tepid, geared more toward the nicest, most updated and move-in ready homes. They are seeking value after such an aggressive spring market, and they are being pickier because they can be.
To prevent your home from being one of those whose days on market figure is creeping up, it needs to be a polished gem! A fresh coat of paint, refinished hardwood floors or brand-new carpet (news flash: no buyer wants to spend their life savings on someone else’s worn out, used carpet). And if something is broken, fix it. This is how you differentiate your product from the others, and you need to now that buyers have a bit more to choose from.
PICK OF THE WEEK: 1114 21st Street S., Arlington, VA 22202 — $1,049,900
