The Nantucket Real Estate Market

For a relatively small island 30 miles out to sea, the local market is anything but small.  In fact, for the last few years, annual sales volume has totaled approximately $1 billion through 400-500 transactions.  Single-family home sales range from $400,000 to $25 million+, with the average sale price around $2.5 million.  A market as dynamic as Nantucket’s deserves regular, comprehensive analysis, which you’ll find here on our insights page.  From charts and graphs to our monthly and annual reports, we cover the market from all sides.  Take a look…

The market appears to be settling into a more measured pace due both to continued low inventory but also the headwinds created by rising interest rates.

All told, the 2021 real estate market tallied $2.3 billion in sales through 732 transactions, a respective increase of 25 percent and 16 percent from 2020 and dramatically higher than any previous market in history. Here is Fisher’s Annual Market Report…
