GROUND NOTES FROM DALTON
|And We're Off|
|The 2021 Nantucket real estate market made history with $2.33 bn in total volume - most ever by a long shot. The next highest years were $1.86bn and $1.16bn in '20 and '19, respectively. There's currently approx. $200mm in the pipeline, which is almost equivalent to last year, but there are only 57 active listings compared to 211 at the same point last year! Should be interesting to see if the sellers come out to play.
One of the highlights of the 2021 market were the big commercial deals. There were a handful of tired, but A-rated, properties that traded. The crown jewel of them all - The Beachside in the heart of Brant Point - 3.5 acres, 94 keys, pool, parking, event space, liquor license - spicy...Then there was the Nantucket Inn, The Pearl and Boarding House, The Brotherhood, and the downtown Summer House collection. It will be exciting to see their transformations as fresh capital gets pumped into them.
LET'S MAKE IT HAPPEN WITH PEPPER II
|Happy New Year! We are ready to rock and roll and make it happen at JPFCO.
Unfortunately, COVID is a reality that we must face but it will not stop JPFCO from selling houses! To make it smooth and easy for Buyers to view properties from the comfort and safety of their own space, we have equipped JPFCO with latest and greatest video and iGuide/3D Tour technology. It's going to take digital application and a bit of creativity to create the life!
Recently, a Buyer became interested in one of our listings from a short video. The Broker did a FaceTime call with the prospective Buyer. The Buyer was ready to come to the Island to view the property, but the Broker had just tested positive for COVID.
Time to make it happen!
We opened up the house, turned on all the lights and disinfected the property 4 hrs before the Buyer arrived. Mid-way through the showing, the Broker reaches out to the Buyer via speaker phone. A few questions are answered, an offer is written up and a deal is inked!
Looking forward to a healthy, happy and prosperous 2022!!!
