The holiday Labor Day weekend drew more buyer attention than the negotiating table. Buyers ratified only 41 contracts this week, the fewest since New Year’s week. But sellers braved the market and listed 71 homes with a nice selection of mid-priced single family properties. Check out what could be the narrowest home in Arlington (12-ft wide) at 711 N. Barton Street.

Interest rates remained virtually unchanged this week, dropping just two basis points to about 3.97% for a 30-yr fixed rate with no points. It seems homeowners got the memo with a spike in refinancing in the last two weeks. Good for them. A promising sign for the fall market is that purchase mortgage applications are up 5% over this time last year.

Finally we have some inventory!

This past week more properties came on the market than went under contract. Looks like the spring inventory is prying loose. Some 63 new listings came on the market ranging from $140,000 to a new home in Lyon Village priced at $2.2 million.

Meanwhile, 46 properties sold at a remarkably low average days on market of only 21. So buyer activity is holding steady. It’s still a strong sellers market as we enter prime spring season, but it appears that fresh inventory is finally coming onto market to delight the buyers.

Here are just a few of the new home listings this week:

The Arlington market is crazy, and getting worse for buyers.

Since last week, only 33 new listings have come on the market ranging in price from $199k to $2.2m, while 44 properties went under contract. The average days on market is now only 19. The total available inventory right now is only 323 properties, of which 94 are over $1 million. The snowy weather may be holding back sellers from putting their homes on the market, but it doesn’t seem to be slowing down the buyers.

The only good news this week for buyers is that mortgage interest rates have NOT gone up much but held steady at about 4.25% for 30-yr fixed.

Some good news… inventory has started to creep up in Arlington.

But now the bad news …. buyers ratified more contracts this past week than the number of new listings, so the inventory pool has shrunk about 4%.

Weather permitting, we should start to see more new listings come on the market in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, mortgage rates have held steady but most mortgage analysts expect rates to edge up slightly in the next few weeks. Should you consider refinancing? It’s not too late. If your current rate is 5/8% to 3/4% higher than a current rate available to you, and you expect to keep your property more than 40 months, then it may make sense and save you money to refinance now before rates increase.

Some 43 new properties came on the market in Arlington this past week, ranging in price from $238k to $1.974m. Meanwhile, 45 properties went under contract further shrinking the already low inventory to a total of 324 active properties for sale in Arlington. According to MRIS, there is a 3 month supply of inventory beginning this new year. The industry considers a 5.5 month supply of inventory as market equilibrium. As buyers already know, we are now in a sellers’ market that will push prices up while interest rates will also rise.

Housing inventory remains very low which is typical this time of year.

In the last week, Arlington saw only 41 new listings come on the market ranging in price from $69k to $3.5m. During that period, 43 properties went under contract with an average days on market of 43. Also this last week, the Federal Reserve indicated it will ease back further on purchases of 10-yr Treasury notes and mortgage backed securities. It will drop purchases from current rate of $75 billion per month to $65 billion. The impact will be gradual increases in the long-term interest rates such as mortgages. So if you plan on buying real estate this year, don’t delay. Lock in lower prices and lower interest rates before they start climbing.

You don’t normally think of January as the spring, but the spring real estate market is already upon us.

Buyer activity has picked significantly and after a lean 2013 with low inventories the entire year, we are now starting to see more properties coming on the market.  With both property values and interest rates rising in Arlington, we can expect to see heightened buyer demand early this year as consumers hurry to lock in prices and mortgage rates before they go up.

Here are just a few of the new listings.
