August Sales Higher in Ocean View

Posted by Leslie Kopp & Christi Arndt on Monday, September 11th, 2023 at 11:10am

For a number of months, we have been reporting that sales are down when compared to the same month last year. This trend broke in August!   During the month, 25 properties went under contract vs. 20 in August of 2022. Meanwhile, inventory has remained relatively stable with 77 properties for sale versus 73 at this same time last year. We don’t know how long this little flurry of activity will last, but it feels as though buyers are tired of waiting for better buying conditions and they are motivated to move on the right property.

As the chart illustrates, total sales year-to-date in Ocean View are down 12% while the median sales price is down 2%. Properties tend to sell in just under a month with 25 days being the median amount of time to go under contract.  

On a personal note, September is a special month for me. This month marks 34 years since starting a career in real estate at the beach. I am extremely grateful to have earned the trust of so many of you over the years and together with Christi Arndt and the group, we look forward to continuing to offer you a high level of guidance and expertise in real estate well into the future!
