Getting here and finding a place to stay is much easier this time of year. In recent years many homeowners have opened their properties to rent in the fall and we have a great rental selection to choose from. Connect with an agent today to talk to someone who lives and breathes Nantucket, we would love to help plan your fall getaway.

Summer may be our favorite season, but fall is not far behind offering fewer crowds and great weather. You may need more sweaters and less swimwear but it’s a small price to pay for the extra elbow room. We have some great rentals available in the shoulder seasons and if you are looking for something more permanent, we have added a wide range of properties for sale in the past weeks.

There is a lot to love about fall on Nantucket. The nights are cool enough for the fireplace and the days can still bring beach weather. The summer crowds have gone and the island is just busy enough where restaurants and shops are still open but slow enough where you can find parking downtown.

Two favorite fall events, the Cranberry Festival and the Nantucket Island Fair, are joining forces to create the Nantucket Harvest Fair. The inaugural Nantucket Harvest Fair strives to continue the family friendly spirit of both events which were island favorites during the fall season.

With the end of August approaching we once again start to mentally prepare ourselves to say goodbye to summer. It's always bittersweet. While we will miss the weather, beaches and restaurants we welcome the sense of calm that returns to the island as the crowds leave.

With the first half of 2022 behind us we can say with confidence that we are looking at another great year.  That being said, compared to the first half of 2021 transactions for this year are down 40% and dollar volume is down 23%. Are we going to say the market is cooling off? Not a chance. Apart from 2021, Nantucket had the strongest first half of the year on record. In fact, average and median home sale prices are up 29% and 16% respectively. Inventory is a lower than last year with 22% fewer homes coming on the market which may be the only thing preventing a repeat of 2021.
