What’s Sold on Island so far in 2019?

It’s April! Our “peak” season is just starting to slow now that everyone has taken Spring Break and Easter is around the corner. The island has been hopping with sun-bathed tourists and seasonal residents peddling along the shared use bike path – which is always great to see!

So, How are Real Estate Sales?

Good question! Actually, sales are a bit slower than last year. So far we’ve seen 35 total single family home sales on island and 38 total condo sales in the months of January, February and March. 

It’s unusual that condo sales surpass the number of single family homes sales. Actually, the  number of condo sales year-to-date isn’t too far off from the number of condos sold this time last year and in 2017.
