As we head into the holiday season and the end of another fantastic year for real estate on Nantucket low inventory continues to play a major role in the market. Fewer new listings and high demand have kept available listings at about the same level as they were this time last year. That being said there are fewer sold and under contract properties in October compared to last year with almost twice as many price drops.

The 48th Annual Christmas Stroll will take place December 2-4, 2022. While some events are still being finalized, now is a great time to contact us to book a rental for Stroll Weekend.

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.

To help navigate the ever changing Nantucket restaurant scene the team at Sourcebook Productions has created an all inclusive dining guide that uses the power of Flowcode technology.

Cancer has touched us all in different ways; it is what unites us and drives our community to make a difference.
