I first want to wish everyone a safe, healthy and Happy 4th of July! There are lots of things happening around town, so get out and enjoy. Of course if you want to look at homes, we are available to assist!
This week I wanted to provide a snapshot of year-to-date activity.
In 2014, through June 24th, 217 properties have SOLD on the Island. 182 of these are home/condo sales, and 35 are land sales.
Of the 182, 75 of these are single family homes, and 107 are condos or townhomes. The average sales price for single family homes is $354,939, and the average sales price per square foot is $176.
The age of a home, its location and its condition can all substantially affect the price per square foot.
New homes in the $300,000 - $450,000 price range remain a hot commodity. Resale homes in the $200,000 - $400,000 price range are in demand. Ocean Front home sales have slowed, but activity is starting to pick-up. “Investors” are also scooping up homes and condos with solid rental histories.
In 2013, during the same period, 220 properties SOLD on the Island. 187 of these were homes/condos, and 33 were land sales.
Of the 187, 78 of these were single family homes, and 109 were condos or town homes. The average sales price for single family homes was $338,082, and the average sales price per square foot was $176.
As you can tell, there is a high level of consistency between 2013 and 2014. I believe this is healthy for the market, and good for both buyers and sellers!
Now here is a snap shot of a few homes we have recently SOLD:
