It is hard to believe that we are more than half of the way through the year and while the beach real estate market as a whole is trending in a positive direction, South Bethany has experienced some slowing in total sales.
As the chart indicates, through July, the number of properties put under contract is down 14% when compared to the first 7 months of last year. Meanwhile, the pace of sales has improved and $1million+ transactions are up considerably, leading to an increase in total sales volume to-date. Inventory is down across most areas of South Bethany which is certainly a factor. This time last year, there were 25 properties for sale versus 18 on the market today.
It’s never too early to begin strategizing. If you are considering a future purchase or sale, please give us a call to discuss your goals: (302) 541-5207.
