There were 3 additional closings in the month of October, which brings the total number of market rate units sold to 20 for the year, though as of November 1st there aren't any more units fully under contract.  This appears to be the result of buyers trying to meet the deadline to qualify for the $8,000 First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit and after early October it is doubtful that a contract would make it all the way to settlement by the  11/30/09 deadline.  Accordingly, the inventory of fully available units has grown from 2 in September to 6 of the 2Bed/1Bath configurations today.

An extension of the tax credit through April 30, 2010, with an expansion to include owners that have owned their current home for at least 5 years, is working it's way through Congress as an attachment to extending unemployment benefits.  It appears to have a good chance of surviving intact with a vote anticipated sometime in the next few weeks.  This would be a boost to the market during the holiday season, which is generally a very slow period for new contracts.  Time will tell and we look forward to keeping you up to date on the happenings in The Arlington.

Looks like some great local information...and this just drives home my point, "All Real Estate is Local and Your REALTOR Should be Too!"

John - Thanks for the comment and we couldn't agree with you more on the need for a local agent that knows the area cold.  Best of luck to you out in California.
