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, Arlingtonians, and welcome to JUST LISTED!

Well, the negative economic news continues to weigh heavily on interest rates, and Wednesday’s Fed rate hike marks three in a row at 75 basis points, or ¾%. The reality is that we are approaching, and in some regards have already hit, an affordability ceiling. The 30 year fixed rate mortgage averages 6.29% over the past week according to Freddie Mac, the highest it’s been since October of 2008.

Many like to point out that these rates are reasonable, at least historically. While that’s true, what that sentiment does not take into account is that home prices were hundreds of thousands of dollars lower, and it also does not factor in that incomes haven’t kept up with house prices. So, we do in fact have an affordability problem now that interest makes up such a large share of a monthly mortgage payment.

This is impacting the local real estate market. Sellers feel it, agents feel it, and buyers are, well, missing. Sure, there is some activity, but it is massively impacted by the things I mention above, and transactional volume is down while inventory is rising. The supply and demand equation that drives real estate is shifting, and it is taking longer to sell a home, even in a highly desirable area such as Arlington.

Right now, there are 30 properties in “Coming Soon” status. This does not account for all of the new and upcoming inventory we’ll see hit the market in coming weeks, but it does show that sellers still plan to sell homes this fall, potentially adding to the rising inventory we’ve seen for the past five weeks.

This week in Arlington, sellers listed 61 homes for sale (21 less than last week), while buyers ratified 14 contracts (15 less than last week), just 10 of which were on homes just listed in the last seven days.

Of the 414 homes currently available for sale (20 more than last week), 140 are detached homes, 59 are semi-detached/town houses, and 215 are condos.

Of those currently available properties, the average asking price is $916,448 and the median is $699,950. These properties have been sitting on the market for 52 days on average, while the median is 30.

This week last year, there were 555 properties available for sale, sellers listed 77 homes and buyers ratified 77 contracts. Mortgage rates were 2.88%!

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.
