Going, going, gone...
Going, going, gone...
The market remains robust. The biggest factor slowing it down is the lack of inventory, which is also true nationwide. Nantucket inventory is down approximately 20% year over year and 60% from its peak in 2009. According to, national inventory of active listings dropped below 700,000 for first time in its records. What has also become very apparent is rental inventory is way down, too - approximately 20%. Many rental homes were either bought and taken out of the rental pool or the homeowners simply are not renting this summer.

Total yearly sales volume went over $1.5bn in 2020 for the first time in history. And, it almost went over $2bn!!! Total volume for 2020 was an astounding $1.862bn (and, keep in mind the market was basically non-existent for mid-March to June).

Here are total yearly sales volumes since '09:

'09 - $435mm
'10 - $701mm
'11 - $532mm
'12 - $830mm
'13 - $758mm
'14 - $1.002bn
'15 - $858mm
'16 - $971mm
'17 - $1.049bn
'18 - $1.156bn
'19 - $1.005bn
'20 - $1.862bn

Ferry reservations open to the general public on Jan. 12th at 5:00am EST, so don't forget to book your summer rental before they are going, going, gone...

Can't Put a Price on Nantucket!
Such a wonderful time of the year, gearing up to rock and roll the New Year!

With all the unbelievably awesome attributes Nantucket has to offer, many would say that the island is priceless. We at JPFCO are ones that sail to that tune.

Sometimes, in order to make it happen you have to pay full price. Of course, it is our nature as humans to negotiate but when you see a property you want and it's for sale, don't hesitate to pay for it - you won't regret it!

Recently, we had a client that wanted a piece of property and the seller wanted full price. The property had been on the market for 6 months so the buyer was hoping to negotiate. Time to shine and make it happen!

We helped build confidence in the buyer that the value was there and they should move forward at full price. They did and before even signing the purchase and sale agreement, they had an offer to purchase the contract for over 20% of what they were paying!

Here's to a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2021 making it happen on ACK!
