My August 1st Eastham Real Estate Snapshot

Here is the August 1st, 2020, snapshot of the Eastham real estate market (single family homes). We had 24 sales for July, Up 12 from June. Wow!  Inventory levels are seriously down from this time last year. Looking forward,  I see sales limited by inventory in what is clearly a Sellers' market. Although the Buyers have arrived, the Sellers have been holding back. We'll need to hold our breath until the market stabilizes.

We had only 12 sales for June, Up 5 from May and down 5 from June 2019.  Inventory levels are seriously down from this time last year.

We'll see.  .

Eastham Real Estate Snapshot - June 1st

Here is the June 1st, 2020, snapshot of the Eastham real estate market (single family homes). We had only 7 sales for May, Up 4 from April and down 7 from May 2019.  Inventory levels are up modestly from last month, but down dramatically from this time last year.

Expect these down results to continue for at least another 2-3 more months, even assuming we come out of this by July. That said, I've observed an up-tick in Buyer traffic. The shortage, now, is in listings.

I Am MOVE SAFE ™ Certified

I Am MOVE SAFE ™ Certified

I am Move Safe certified by HomeLight, a real estate referral company. What's important to you is that I am able (and willing) to take you through the entire Buying or Selling process without any face-to-face meetings. Certainly not the preferred scenario but very necessary in this time of Coronavirus.

For Sellers, it means that we would meet online (Zoom or Facetime), sign documents online (ZipLogix or DocuSign), prepare the property for photos (and virtual tours) and for sale, all without you actually having to be present. After the accepted offer, I would manage the Buyer's home inspection, the septic and water testing, and the smoke/CO inspection. Over the last few years I've sold a few homes this way, having never had a face-to-face meeting with the Sellers.

For Buyers, much the same way, but the shopping experience would be via photos and virtual tours. I would do video walkthroughs, take measurements, manage the home inspection, work with the attorneys, etc.

For both Buyers and Sellers - my job is to get it done, smoothly, and with no surprises. Call me.

My April 1st Eastham Real Estate Snapshot

Here is the April 1st, 2020, snapshot of the Eastham real estate market (single family homes). We had 11 sales for March, up 6 from February. February is normally our slowest month. Inventory levels are down modestly from last month (and last year at this time). What a difference a month makes. Any comparisons to last year (or any other year) will not be for guidance as to how 2020 will go. COVID-19 took care of that!  Let's hope (and pray) that the economy recovers quickly once the 'all clear' is sounded.  The March results may be the last 'normal' month for a while.
