June Mid-Month Report – Market Update 6-17-20
All anxiety that the spring real estate activity was going to be pandemically challenged has been erased by a charging market.
Fueled by cash buyers flush with capital that needs to be invested, former fence sitters, urban dwellers fleeing the city and pent-up demand, the Vineyard real estate market, like markets across the U.S., is flourishing.
For the first 15 days of June, 45 new listings have come on the market, a 55% increase over the same period last year. Even more encouraging, 30 offers to purchase have been accepted, nearly double that of the same period in 2019.
Sold properties, which mostly reflect offers made 30 to 60 days prior during the worst of the current outbreak, are down by two at 20. Those numbers will surely rise as closings are registered in the coming weeks.
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.
