Summer Sales Slow at the Beach, Inventory Begins to Rise
After the strongest start to the year in more than a decade, real estate activity slowed early this summer and the trend carried through August. Sales last month of both single-family homes and condo/townhomes were down considerably compared to August of 2017. Inventory is now on the rise in several areas and we will be monitoring closely to see if this brings more buyers to the area this fall.
On a personal note, September is always a special time for me. It was 29 years ago this month that I started a career in real estate at the beach. I cannot begin to express how fortunate I feel to have earned the trust of so many of you over the years and today, my group is stronger than ever. We continue to work with far more buyers and sellers than any other agent or group at the beach and we are positioned to provide a level of service and marketing to our clients that is unmatched.
Together with the group, Christi and I are here to be your real estate professional long before you need us, and we look forward to continuing to be the industry leader long into the future.
