June statistics are out but don't be deceived.

Statistical information can be deceiving.Comparingone month to another month, although interesting, is not an accurate measure of trends. For example when comparingJune of 2010 to June of 2011 we findfewer homes were available for sale in 2011although the months of available inventory increased in June 2011 from 9.5 in 2010to 11.9 in June 2011.

Average asking priceswere down inJune 2011by about 2.6% and average sold priceswere down by 9.6%. The average days on market had increased by 5.5%in June 2011. Whereas, the listing to sold price remained the same.

However, if we look at the same statistics over a 15 month period , April 2010 through June 2011,the average asking price is down by an insignificant 0.6% and average sold price is up by a more significant11.8%. Additionally, the average days on market has decreased by 5.6%.

It is important to view statistical trends over an extended period of time to get an accurate picture of the market. Ultimately, when viewed over time,the real estate market isslowlyimproving on the Cape.

Client Testimonials

We feel absolutely blessed to have been referred to Agnes and Ed Chatelain. As brokers for the estate sale of my mother’s home following her death, they took on two stressed out co-executors, both of whom lived out of state. My brother and I had little knowledge of the area or of local regulations and resources. The Chatelain’s level of expertise, energy, and willingness to go the extra mile for us was incomparable. Agnes responded to every question or concern almost instantaneously, kept us informed of every detail, reassured as needed, and deftly brought us through inspections, sale and closing with efficiency and ease. The combination of professionalism, practicality, and warmth made the working relationship an absolute joy.
