June Final Report – Market Update 7-1-20
The month of June has ended with a surprising statistic: 104 properties came to market (90 new listings and 14 returns to market) and 104 properties either received offers or closed/sold. Is that a hot market? It certainly feels like it.
Thirty-seven more properties came to market in June over 2019 (104 vs 67), a 55% increase.
And the offers/closed total is up more than 37%.
And the lag in the market in March-April has actually suppressed the number of closings in June.
And the more than double offers-to-purchase in June (up 216% over 2019) will show up later in the summer as a jump in closings.
So, is the real estate market rushing to make up for the time lost between March and mid-April?
The activity is certainly real, but it remains to be seen whether it will continue and will the final results be equal to, or greater than, last year.
In-person showings in which buyer and seller agents and buyers come to look through a home are continuing at a quick pace, according to recent activity and the experience of Vineyard Open House Real Estate.
All agents are respecting the need for masks and gloves and are maintaining social distances while counseling their clients to follow these safety protocols.
