My Eastham September Snapshot

Here is the September, 2019, snapshot of the Eastham real estate market (single family homes). We had 11 sales for August, up 1 from July, and down 1 from last August, bringing the year-to-date sales number to 83, just 1 ahead of 2018.  Inventory levels continue to be good, but both the average and median prices for the listed homes continue to be way up compared with what's actually selling.  

Fall has arrived, the summer is over, the best time of the year is upon us. Enjoy!  (Click on table to enlarge it for easier reading).
