South Bethany Real Estate Sales

After significant strengthening from 2014 to 2016, the South Bethany market remained robust in 2017. Activity was on pace to end the year with even more impressive numbers, but the uncertainty of impending tax reform and limited inventory in many areas contributed to a temporary slow down late in the year.

We are pleased that the final tax bill is significantly better for homeowners than early versions. The continuation of low inventory in most areas at the beach is positive for property owners and makes it extremely important for buyers to work with an experienced agent.

North Bethany Real Estate Market Report 2017

After solid strengthening from 2015 to 2016, the year-end report for North Bethany tells us that the market softened significantly in 2017, but we disagree. The numbers do not tell the whole story.

Limited inventory was a big factor in 2017, particularly for homes one-off the ocean and mid-beach block. What appeared to be sufficient inventory to meet buyer demand throughout the year was simply not. Indicative of this is the fact that nearly half of the properties sold in 2017 went under contract within 5 weeks from being listed for sale. Buyers have been very patient but do move quickly when the right property becomes available.

Sea Colony Year End Numbers

After the market experienced some softening in SC East from 2015 to 2016, sales surged on the East in 2017. Sales held steady on the West in 2017 while prices declined some. This is the result of the types of properties sold, not necessarily an over all softening of values. 

Activity was on pace to end the year with even more impressive numbers, but the active hurricane with the uncertainty of impending tax reform and limited inventory contributed to a temporary slow down late in the year.  We are pleased that the final tax bill is significantly better for homeowners than early versions. We have already felt an increase in activity in early 2018. 

On a personal note, the Leslie Kopp Group hit a big milestone in 2017, having surpassed $150
