For more than a year now, we have shared with you that the beach real estate market has been extremely strong for sellers with limited inventory leading to rising prices. This trend has continued and as of August 1, there were 35 properties for sale in the Bethany-Fenwick area versus 101 at this time last year.
In the month of July, 37 properties went under contract (versus 67 in July of 2020). During the month, 38 new properties were listed for sale (versus 59 new listings in July of 2020). There continues to be pent up buyer demand as inventory cannot keep pace and many properties are selling within just a few short days!
As we look toward the fall and winter months, we anticipate a rise in new listings and there is no way to predict how long these conditions will last. If you are considering a sale or looking to make a purchase, please give us a call!
