December's market performance continued the trend we have been seeing since June - massive seasonally adjusted increases in median price, closed sales, and new listings. Why? Massive seasonally adjusted decreases in inventory - December 2020 saw only 40% of the inventory of 2019. But these numbers are offset somewhat by a large increase (33%) in new listings as well - we are seeing supply come on the market in response to increased demand, leading to a 39% increase in closed sales. So what's the moral? Depends on which side of the table you are on. For buyers, don't lose hope! Surely demand is outstripping supply, but we are seeing historically high numbers of homes come on the market to meet that demand. Make sure your ducks are in a row and you are ready to pounce when the right home comes on. For sellers, there has absolutely never been a better time to sell your home on Cape Cod than this very moment.
