Market Conditions Remain Strong for Ocean View Sellers in Q1

Posted by Leslie Kopp & Christi Arndt on Wednesday, April 12th, 2023 at 12:30pm

During the first quarter of the year, we continued to experience high buyer demand as we navigate historically low inventory.


As the chart illustrates, total sales are down 30% when compared to last year while sales volume is down 26%. The chart shows some slowing in the pace of sales with the average days-to-contract at about 2 months, however, there was a noticeable increase in the pace of sales during the month of March. Property values were up 4% through the first quarter when compared to last year with the median sale price at $533K vs. $509K in 2022.

If you are considering a sale or purchase, our experience and market knowledge is unmatched. Please give us a call (302) 541-5207.
