In September of 2011, 4 homes sold in Sewalls Point. No change from August. This includes one $4,000,000 plus, sale for a beautiful waterfront home. September showed a marked increase in inventory which turned around a long trend of decreasing inventory.  The extra supply will have a negative effect on this local hypermarket and will most likely depress prices for the coming months, unless there is enough demand to reduce the inventory.  As our winter season approaches, we may very well have more increased inventory as the season for snowbirds (seasonal residents) and retirees becomes more active.

This increase in inventory is also attributable to many sellers trying to time the market as well as a reaction from recent relatively good sales for the past spring and summer season.  Most efforts to time the market, especially when made in relatively large numbers become self defeating as in this trying market, this increase in inventory may just drive the market a bit lower.

However, for buyers, especially for those who can obtain financing, there hasn’t been a more attractive real estate market in decades.  There are some savvy buyers getting excellent deals for homes at prices equivalent to 10 or 11 years ago.

This will be an interesting season to watch!
