Dewey Market Watch 3/23/19 to 4/23/19

The market has been a little slow for this time of the year. During the last month there were four new fee simple single family homes listed and only two new condo listings. The alarming number of only two pending condo contracts and zero sales in single family for an entire month is of concern. Typically this time of the year the market will observe two sales per week during the peak spring selling season. The inventory for single family homes is comfortable but inventory for condos is down. I expect the month of May to be a strong month for sales. Presently interest rates are 4.00% for a 30 year fixed. Jumbo rates are the same at 4%. Super rates to purchase an investment! Everybody loves bacon!!! This weekend 4?26-4/28 is baconfest in Dewey. A springtime favorite event so be sure to stop by and sample some extravagant bacon treats!!

It’s been a mild winter here at the shore! The spring selling season is upon us. Sales have been a little on the slow side coming out of the winter months. Inventory has increased considerably since the 1st of the year so the spring selling season offers a variety of properties to choose from. Interest rates are very good. A 30 year fixed with 20% down is at 4.370%. A 15 year fixed with 20% down is 3.99% and a 30 year jumbo with 25% down is at 4.25%. Everybody in Dewey knows this for sure:) Bring on ST.

These two new listings on Terrace and Fisher bring the inventory up to five listings in the Forgotten Mile. There are two homes for sale in Dodds Addition and three homes in Silver Lake Manor. That’s a pretty nice start for inventory in the Forgotten Mile for the upcoming spring season. Presently there’s 16 fee simple single family homes on the market in Dewey. The average amount of listings recently have been nine to eleven properties so the inventory is looking pretty good for the spring selling season. There are six leased land properties on the market. The inventory of six is slightly above average so the inventory for single family homes on leased land is pretty stable at the moment. Bring on spring!!

Someone bought themselves a Christmas gift which many would consider one of the nicest homes in the resorts area. This beautiful home boasts 8,400 sq’ on 1/3 acre ocean front lot. It doesn’t get any better than this!!!

The closing at 103 Jersey in Reho. By The Sea actually is the magic sale that has Reho. By The Sea properties out selling fee simple properties in 2018! There were seven closed transactions in RBTS to date this year vs six closings for the fee simple homes in 2018. The price for single family homes is sharply increasing due to the lack of inventory in both areas of the market.

There were two nice price reductions in the Forgotten Mile. The baby McMansion on Blackstone is to die for. The home that sits on a 1/4 acre. Blackstone is a very desirable and private location. I expect this home to sell once the holidays are over and the market resumes to normal. The 2nd home on Terrace is a 5bd/4.5ba, 2,348sq’ home in another great location. Both of these fine homes are an easy walk to Dewey or Rehoboth. Appreciation is surely being realized in the Forgotten Mile!

Deal or no deal?? The Sunspot had some recent structural issues that are presently being resolved. Heavy assessments were issued to each home owner. The last that I read future assessments were upcoming and the price wasn’t determined at that time. Even with heavy and undetermined assessments, the purchase price of $320K for an ocean front unit leaves plenty of room to re group the assessments that were levied to each owner. Surely once all of the assessments are complete the value for this building will appreciate back up to present market values.Deal or no deal??

Dewey Market Watch 11/16/18 to 12/5/18

Happy Holidays!!!!

      It’s that time of the year when families gather to celebrate the holidays. It’s a time of the year that we all reflect on this year’s blessings and to celebrate the new year ahead. The real estate market slows to a snails pace from Thanksgiving to the 1st of the new year. Typically the market would pick up just after the super bowl or Valentines weekend but not anymore. Activity increases just after the new year if the weather permits. That’s a big IF!!! Two and half hours to the north and the west puts you in the mountain ranges of PA and VA which means snow! Many times our resort area will experience rain but customers abroad are grounded in their local states due to the winter weather. Sit back and gather with family and friends and enjoy the holiday season!!!

There are four new listings for the previous 2 weeks. Three of the homes were previously listed on the market. My top pick would be 16 New Orleans.  The mid ocean block home has 5 beds and 3.5 baths. I have clients that I’ve sold to that have similar sized homes in similar locations that have turned them into rental machines. If properly managed you could realize $80K to $100K for a home similar to this. Ocean block inventory is extremely low so I don’t expect this home to last through the end of the year. Looking for a leased land property? The new water front listing on Chesapeake St. has an older (hard to come by) 30 year lease @ $3,967. annually. The water front home sits on an over sized lot that sure to afford tons of privacy. Please contact me for further information on any of these homes.

There were two very nice closings last week. I was the listing agent for the 1st St property. I sold the home before it even hit the market. The property is at the end of a very short street just under the water tower. The location is very private and no traffic. The 2nd closing at 103 Chicago was another nice investment. The home is a Reho. By The Sea property that had 16 years remaining on the lease @ $12K a year. Due to the location to the beach if properly managed this could easily be a positive cash flow investment.

Dewey Market Watch 10/6/18 to11/14/18

 

 

The Autumn selling season has been very good! There’s 10 new listings for the previous month which is average to good for this time of the year. The number of days on the market has been very low. If a property is accurately priced then a quick sale has been the result. I don’t believe that we’ll have an “off season” this year. There are tons of buyers out there and the minimal inventory that should keep purchasers busy throughout the year. We’ll experience a slight slow down during the holidays but expect the market to remain very active. Buyers who are serious had their Realtors set up auto searches so that their clients are alerted for every new listing. Buyers use websites like Realtor.com, Zillow… to set up similar automated searches that enable them to follow the market right up to date.

      There’s been eight pending contracts for the 4-5 weeks. Eight sales are good for this time of the year. The pending contracts have covered all areas of the market. Contracts that were ratified contained single family homes, single family homes on leased land, new condo construction and several resales. This further proves that active buyers are out there in all areas of the market. The interest rates are hovering around 5% for a 30 year fixed and still remains to be a good rate for a home purchase. The market surely needs inventory! You may be surprised to see how much your home is worth in “today’s” present market. Wondering? Please give me a call to set up a free, no sales pressure market analysis that will educate you with the value of your home

My new listing at 21180 1st St. that sits at the end of a dead end street (quiet cul de sac) went to contract within the hour of listing the home. The quaint home at 16 Jersey went to contract. Jersey street is a high demand area in Dewey and reflects the quieter side of Dewey.

I expect these prices to increase due to supply and demand. 107 Carolina is a wonderful home in RBTS that comes with a newer 57 year lease. Closing prices continue to appreciate in this area of the market. 120 Rodney didn’t last long! On the market for only 2 days this water view home is a true oasis.

Dewey Market Watch 6/6/18 to 9/14/18

Welcome to my newly revised website!! I’ve recently updated my website with many new and exciting features, all geared up to be more user friendly:) Interested in a property below? Just click on the address and the full details as listed in our MLS system will appear. On June 1st we joined a new operating system that combines a multiple state membership. The new MLS information sheet on properties has changed and offers more detailed information on a given property. This weekly Market watch contains all of the activity for the summer of 2018. My weekly market Watch will resume on a bi weekly update every other weds. At that time I’ll have the ability to educate you with each new listing… in a much more detailed manner.

     To all of my 1st time users this section labeled Weekly Market Watch is a short editorial containing all transactions within the previous two weeks. The areas that are included are Dewey Beach, Indian Beach (South Dewey), Forgotten Mile to include Silver Lake Manor, Dodds Addition, Killens Addition on the east side of Ocean Hwy and Ann Acres and Poynters Addition on the west side of Ocean Hwy. This week’s update contains all of the transactions from 6/6/2018 to present, basically the whole summer. Transaction numbers are down in just about every corner of the market. Low inventory is to blame. The problem not only exists in Dewey but the who resort area has been effected. The low inventory has been reported on the front page of just about every newspaper in the state. Interest rates have risen sharply and was nearing the 5% mark but have recently dropped back down to 4.6250% for a 30 year fixed. These interest rates are still historically low and aren’t effecting the purchases of properties within our area. The autumn selling season is now in full gear. Many people consider listing their home after summer rental incomes are realized. Thinking of listing or wondering what the value of your home is? Please call me for a free market analysis

Four of the closings have been in the Forgotten Mile just north of Dewey and two of the closings were in Indian Beach. The Forgotten Mile on the east side of Ocean Highway has been selling well. Naturally when inventory is critically low then surrounding areas appreciate and increase in activity.

Low inventory continues to plague the condo market similar to the low inventory in the single family home market. Presently there’s only 27 active condos on the market. Nine of the listings are new construction at the Lighthouse Cove leaving the remaining 18 units all resales. Typical inventory is about 30 resales and a dozen new construction thus proving the numbers are way off of previous years inventories. There’s only been 14 closings for the YTD figures with five of the sales coming from the new construction at Lighthouse Cove.

Market Watch for 5/18/18 to 6/4/18

Here is the weekly update for real estate market activity in Dewey Beach for the week starting on 5/18/18 to 6/4/18

HAPPY SUMMER!!! Gosh I never get tired of saying that:) Lots of activity in the Dewey market in the last two weeks. There were five new listings entered in areas that were in desperate need of new inventory. My top pick this week is the HUGE price reduction at 38399 George St. The single family home that’s zoned commercial had a previous asking price of $795K. The new asking price is $599,999 which is more in line with present market value.The new listing at 315 Dutch Rd in Sea Breeze is another fine new offering. The 3bd/3ba home sits on a gracious .27ac lot. Sea Breeze is a very much sought after community that offers the quiet side of Dewey:) The next listing is the future Dewey. This 6bd/4.5 ba, 3,515sq’ is adorable inside and out. Located on Ann St just a few blocks away from the beach. This beautiful home sets the standard as Dewey transitions from summer bungalows to 3 level McMansions. We have a new listing in Reho. By The Sea. This quaint summer cottage located at 100 West is being offered with a 54 year lease @ $16,628. The entry level asking price for a single family home is $424,000. A new listing in the Opal was added to the inventory. This 2bd/2ba, 925sq’ unit offers a slight ocean view and conveys turn key ready.

There were six pending transactions in the last two weeks. There were three closings in the new Lighthouse Cove complex. The property at 120 Read went to contract. The property had two grandfathered homes on one lot. Rehoboth By The Sea got in on the action as they had two sales. Both of the sales were in the ocean block. My condo listing at 15B Saulsbury (Mariners Surfside) and 21 Saulsbury rounded out a very active couple of weeks.

My website will be be down 6/5/18 as our MLS system transitions into a 7 state membership that includes a whole new operating system. My down time has been extended to allow time for a few upgrades within my own website. The down time should be approximately two weeks for updates to be applied. Stay tuned for some nicely added features!!

DELMARVA SCENES Memorial weekend has gifted us with a new summer:) It was good to see lots of happy, smiling faces. Summer is in full gear as the beaches over flow with happy sunworshippers. All species of warm weather fish have arrived in our local waters.  All of our summer wildlife has returned to spend a relaxing summer with us. It’s a great time to live at the beach!!!!! Happy summer!

I have a new app that allows you to access information on any property that’s listed in Sussex County. Have you ever been driving around, see a home that you like and was wondering the price of the home? Just a simple click on my app and the first item on the menu is NEARBY properties. A list will populate all of the immediate nearby listings. Click on the property of interest and the app automatically pulls that property listing information directly from our MLS operating system. Lots of other cool features as well!
