As Inventory Plummets in Arlington, Home Sales Follow Suit

In June, closed home sales in Arlington fell 27 percent. This drop was likely caused by two metrics. First, the supply of homes for sale plummeted by 55 percent year-over-year, resulting in paltry inventory in June. Second, home prices continued to rise, increasing by 8 percent year-over-year to $565,310.
Lastly, buyers may be getting fatigued with the competition, which remains high based on the monthly contract ratio. For every active listing in June, 1.23 contracts were submitted, the second highest contract ratio ever for the county.
