Ocean View Sales Slow Mid-Year, Rebound in Fall
After a late Spring and Summer slow-down, the Ocean View Real Estate market experienced a nice rebound this fall. There was a significant 54% rise in sales during the months of September and October when compared to 2017. Buyers benefited from a nice jump in September inventory!
As the chart illustrates, the market is trending in a positive direction when compared to last year. Additionally, properties are going under contract more quickly (109 average days to contract vs. 134 last year).
New construction single family home sales are fueling Ocean View’s increase. Existing single family and townhome sales match 2017 while new construction homes have more than doubled (80 through October versus 56 during this same time last year). These are encouraging trends and over-all, we are optimistic about the market as we head into 2019!
We wish you and your loved ones a very joyful holiday season!
