With a continuing, strong, upward trend through January in local real estate sales statistics, it’s becoming a good bet that underlying market dynamics are strong and might well continue. The current, powerful seller’s market could be with us for some time.
Covid has caused great interest in owning property in less congested areas, and the fact many folks can now work remotely makes the decision to buy easier than ever. Although many in the workforce are seriously hurting as a result of the Covid-inspired recession, it is also true that those still working in high paying jobs or with selected investments, have done well financially over the past twelve months. The latter group are the primary buyers of resort real estate.
