Remembering 9/11 at the Pentagon — President Obama attended a memorial service at the Pentagon Sunday morning. Some 800 friends and family members of victims of the Pentagon attacks were in attendance at the private 15th anniversary event. [Los Angeles Times, NBC 4]

Arlington Remembers 9/11 — Local remembrance ceremonies were held in Arlington for the 9/11 anniversary, including an annual wreath-laying ceremony outside county government headquarters at Courthouse Square and, on Saturday, an event at Fire Station No. 5, the closest Arlington County fire station to the Pentagon — whose firefighters were among the first to arrive on scene at the burning Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001. The latter event featured crew members of the USS Arlington. [Facebook, InsideNova]

Note About Morning Notes — You might notice that the URL of this post is /morning-notes-1500/, reflecting that this is the 1,500th post published with the headline “Morning Notes.” Technically, however, this is Morning Notes post No. 1,515. About 1 percent of the time we either press publish before filling out the headline or have a slight misspelling (it’s the first post we publish in the morning, c’mon) — even though the error is quickly corrected, the erroneous URL has to stay as-is.

Just Listed banner

Just Listed highlights Arlington properties that just came on the market within the past week. This feature is written and sponsored by Team Cathell, “Your Orange Line Specialists.”

It’s no surprise that new listings were down this week in Arlington.

Only 48 sellers braved the last week of summer before Labor Day weekend to put their homes on the market. But sales were brisk, with 60 homes going under contract. Many of those had been on the market 5 months or longer.

Historically low interest rates didn’t move this week. But watch out for possible Fed action to raise rates at its meeting in September. If Friday’s jobs report is strong, the Fed could nudge rates upward.

Just Listed banner

Just Listed highlights Arlington properties that just came on the market within the past week. This feature is written and sponsored by Team Cathell, “Your Orange Line Specialists.”

Fresh new listings this week outpaced sales in Arlington.

Some 63 homes were listed this week, while 48 homes were sold, helping to balance the low inventory problem we have in Arlington. It’s a national problem as well. Last month, existing home sales dropped 3.2% from last year because inventory levels are so low nationwide. That has helped new home sales which spiked last month about 30% to their highest level since 2007.

The robust price point is about $300,000 for first time home buyers taking advantage of record low interest rates.

Rates remained unchanged this week in all categories. It’s still a great time to refinance or buy if you can find the right home.

Click to see all the fresh new inventory in MRIS and call Team Cathell (703-975-2500) when you find a home you like.
