Ryan Haley with Atlantic Shores Sotheby’s International Realty is with the real estate market report for Delmarva for the first week of June.
This week, all three counties saw more properties sell than came on the market, so we’re out-selling what is currently coming on the market. And actually, we’ve seen that as well.
We had a little bit of a lull, it felt like there for about two weeks. It could have coincided there with Memorial Day, kids graduating, people being busy, and then we had rates that jumped up over seven percent. Now they’ve settled back down under seven percent. People are getting into summer mode, and we’ve seen an uptick in activity. Even in our office, it’s definitely been more busy here over the last seven days.
