July continued the strong resurgence of the real estate markets since those dismal years starting back in 2008. 2017 is the third consecutive year of very impressive sales and increasing values for the Door and Kewaunee markets.
Year to date (Jan-July) vitals are very strong. The number of sales increased from 498 in 2016 to 538 this year for a nice increase of 8%. This is especially encouraging since inventory of available properties typically decreases as we move through improving economic conditions.
Everybody’s favorite real estate statistic is median price. Thus far in 2017 we have seen a very solid increase of 10% moving from $136,000 in 2016 to $154,500 this year.
Another positive sign of a good market is the decrease of “days on the market”. Here we see a rather substantial improvement. In 2016 the average time it took for a property to sell was 405 days. In 2017, year to date, that number has dropped to 325 days, down 25%. We find the demand segment of the market realizes it is a bit of a seller’s market so they must act fast if they want to secure a specific property.
We are seeing multiple offers on many properties.
So, how are things for residential waterfront properties year to date? Here’s the lowdown:
