Daily MV Real Estate Market Update 5-20-20
The month of May is continuing its stronger-than-April start with another 24 properties coming to market. Even better, there were a dozen offers to purchase, beating the total of the previous two weeks, and giving a total of 22 offers for the month--nearly two and a half times as many offers for all of April. Clearly, the market is on an upward trend.
Sales were down, but that is more indicative of what was happening in March and April when the full force of the coronavirus was hitting the market. Offers to purchase offer a time stamp of what is happening right now. And the signs are positive.
Island agents have been showing up in large numbers to take advantage of virtual showings via Zoom. Held every Tuesday, the showings are helping get the word out about the homes, and buyers are getting educated about the market. The result is increased activity.
Homes are also being shown in person by agents while maintaining strict social distancing guidelines along with the wearing of gloves and masks. Some properties are even being sold sight unseen. Cash deals are prevalant as well. And in some recent sales, homes have only lasted a week before being snatched up. If you're thinking of selling, there's a market waiting for you.
