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.
Hello, Arlington, and welcome to JUST LISTED!
Buyers stepped up big this week, ratifying a ton of contracts, but sellers put even more new inventory on the market! The market is moving, but it is not moving at the pace we saw in the spring. Perhaps earlier this year we experienced all or most of the appreciation we would for the year, and now we’re just leveled off for the time being.
There is a big misconception about how slightly lower demand impacts prices. Many ask us if this means prices are going down, but the simple and straightforward answer is “no.” Prices are established by previous sales and what current buyers are willing to pay for them. While they correlate to days on market (DOM), it will take much more than a couple months of slightly lower demand before prices fall.
Reminder — 6 months of inventory is considered a market equilibrium. Right now, we’re still running at around 2.5 months of inventory, so it is a strong seller’s market, especially in the detached and semi-detached/townhome market.Prices haven’t fallen on any type of adjusted basis in Arlington, in over a decade. Of course, we move upward in some fits and spurts, so occasionally the appreciation slows along the way as we work towards new highs each year.
A huge surge in condo inventory over just the past four weeks (about 15%) is adding heavily to our overall inventory, and we have 77 more to choose from than this week last year (and 26 more than last week!)
