How's the Market?


When I think about what is driving the market, one thing stands out above all the others — demographics.  Baby boomers, who account for 53% of the wealth in the US, continue to move here in high percentages and also are transferring wealth to their children (Gen X and Millennials) who are buying homes here. Despite the staggering costs for home owner’s insurance and high interest rates, demographics plays the key role in driving the pace of sales and it shows no signs of letting up.




The first week of March was lively with activity, especially for the right properties. This week, we saw 5 New Listings, 1 Closed Sale, and 4 Pending Sales. What stood out was the speed at which newly listed properties found buyers. Three out of the five new pending sales entered escrow within 17 days of hitting the market. Highlighting the continued desire for luxury and convenience to the beach and lower villages, a Spanish Colonial estate in the Hedgerow's neighborhood sold for its full price of $16.5M within just 26 days on the market (1530 Mimosa Lane). Notably, it previously sold in 2021 for $11.7M - that is a 41% increase.
