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.

Good morning Arlington — it’s hot these days but at least there is a tiny bit of relief when this column comes out, at 5:30 a.m. in the morning!

The August slump is here, and I sense a huge opportunity for buyers, as well as strategic positioning for sellers.

Transactional volume slows way down this time of year — so many people are at the beach squeezing in one last vacation before settling back into the routine of the school year, and even housing takes a breather.

While there are fewer new homes being listed for sale, there are also fewer homes being taken under contract by purchasers. Couple this with mortgage rates that have just dipped below 5% for the first time since mid-April and a decrease in overall levels of competition, and purchasers may find it easier to snag the home of their choice.

Sellers are likely waiting until September to list their home, as this strategy seems to work year over year. Though kids now go back a week before Labor Day, as opposed to always just after, the mentality and objective match up — purchasers get back on track and start shopping again in September and this shows up in an uptick in showing activity, mortgage pre-approval letters, open house visitors and ratified contracts.

This week in Arlington, sellers listed 51 homes for sale while buyers ratified 50 contracts, 12 of which were on homes just listed in the last seven days. This near equilibrium for the week is not something we experience very often in Arlington — for the majority of the year sellers have way outpaced buyers — a flip from last year where buyers frequently ratified more offers.

Of the 425 homes currently available for sale, 136 are detached homes, 59 are semi-detached/town houses and 230 are condos.

Of those currently available properties, the average asking price is $890,497 and the median is $660,000. These properties have been sitting on the market for 52 days on average, while the median is 33.

Quick note — there was a time back in January and February where the median was 12 days, so while 33 doesn’t seem like much, this is a substantially different market and the dynamics continue to change rapidly, and from week to week.

This week last year, there were 497 properties available for sale, sellers listed 63 homes and buyers ratified 67 contracts. Mortgage rates were 2.77%!

It is the decision of the United States Department of Defense (DoD) Washington Headquarters Services (WHS) to implement the Proposed Action: the 2024 Pentagon Reservation Master Plan Update (Pentagon Master Plan) as the framework to guide future decisions regarding land use and infrastructure at the Pentagon site and Mark Center. The Pentagon Master Plan aims to provide an update to the existing conditions at the Pentagon and Mark Center and presents projects and revisions to land use categorizations that will address the specific needs to reduce the Pentagon’s environmental impacts and advance sustainability, security, and resilience. The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review has been completed through preparation of a Final Environmental Assessment (EA) to evaluate environmental impacts arising from implementation of the projects. WHS has concluded that no significant impacts to the human or natural environment will result from implementation of any projects, and recognized negative effects will be reduced by adherence to standard best management practices, applicable permit and consultation conditions, and standard operating procedures. This decision is further documented in the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) signed on March 20, 2024.

This notice announces the availability of the FONSI to implement the 2024 Pentagon Reservation Master Plan Update.

For further information and to request a copy of the Final EA or FONSI, please contact Brian King, Environmental and Sustainability Program Manager, WHS/Facilities Services Directorate/Standards and Compliance Division/Environmental and Sustainability Branch; (703-614-3658 or [email protected]).
