2017 was a great rebuilding year for real estate sales on the Eastern Shore of Virginia and Maryland.  Starting around June of 2017…it was documented that agents across the shore of both states were reporting increased sales, higher sale prices, and shorter days on market times.

Improved sales were especially noted in the heart of Dockside Properties service around of Chincoteague Island and the surrounding communities of Trails End & Captain’s Cove.  Personally, I had my best individual year in 2017.  I had the highest sales figures I have ever reported in a single year as an agent and I personally had over 200 “transaction side” unit sales.  I am very humbled by these statistics.  And also recognized that the trust my clients and customers have in me is what makes me successful.  My success is their success.

As mentioned earlier…the number of sales were up and the time on the market has started to go down.  And whereas our area tends to see a decrease in activity after Columbus Day for the off season…sales did not drop off as nearly much as it normally does.  In my thirteen year career…this was the most active November and December I have ever been involved in.  And we saw signs of multiple buyers near the end of the year which should lead to higher sale prices in the future.  We are optimistic that this trend will continue in 2018.  If you have questions about statistics in a particular town or area…let me know.
