Jon Goode Market Report April 2024

PROVINCETOWN, TRURO AND WELLFLEET 1Q2024 FIGURES

MARKET ACTIVITY REMAINS SLOW BUT STEADY WITH A PERSISTENT LACK OF INVENTORY BUT NEW CONSTRUCTION CONTINUES FULL FORCE.

Spring in Provincetown. Restaurants and shops are beginning to open and Commercial Street is getting its annual reset with businesses everywhere, renovating and simply freshening up. This year’s mild winter allowed for an inordinate amount of new construction and renovations to continue throughout Provincetown. Most of these construction projects are private renovations, but there are several projects that will eventually add to the available sales inventory over the next few months. We are looking closely at market developments in April which will help detect the overall direction of the market this spring.

First quarter results are becoming even more difficult to analyze because of the smaller number of sales. Not surprisingly, demand remains consistently high and inventory remains consistently low. This market dynamic will continue to impact sales in most categories. First quarter results are all over the board. Sales are down in Provincetown and up in Truro and Wellfleet. Single-family prices are down in Provincetown and Wellfleet, but up in Truro. Condo prices are up in Provincetown and Truro.

Lower sales provide less of a sample from which to derive trends. Only three single-family properties sold in Provincetown in the first quarter of 2024, and only five sold in Truro! There is not a lot of data to analyze, but I will do my best to provide insights as well as provide all the empirical data which is in the charts below.

PROVINCETOWN

Condominium sales in Provincetown were down 22% to only 18 from 23 for the first quarter of the year. The average sale price increased 11% to $940K from $848K. There are 25 condos on the market as of April 13 with an average listing price of $1.4M. For some interesting context: 10 years ago in 2014, there were 112 condos on the market!

Single-family home sales were down 25% to only 3 from 4 this first quarter. The average sale price decreased 13% to $1.98M from $2.3M. There are 21 single-family homes on the market as of April 13 with an average listing price of $3.5M. 10 years ago, there were 49 single-family properties on the market!

TRURO AND WELFLEET

In Truro there were only five single-family home sales, up from four last year. These five sales included one $4M+ and two $2M sales skewing the average sale price up 118% to $2.01M from $920K last year. The median price was up substantially as well to $1.97M from $915K. As of April 13, as we “go to press” there are eight single-family properties on the market for sale in Truro with an average listing price of $2.2M.

There were six condominium sales in Truro – an increase of 50% from four last year. The average sales price was up 22% to $474K from $389K. There are only 5 on the market with an average listing priced of $711K!

In Wellfleet, the average price of single-family homes was down 21% from $1.15M to $911K. Sales were up 36% from 7 to 10. There are only 11 single-family homes available for sale with an average listing price of $3.5M.

FROM “STUDS TO SHINGLES” – NEW CONSTRUCTION AND RENOVATIONS EVERYWHERE SHOW REAL CONFIDENCE IN OUR LOCAL REAL ESTATE MARKET

With Spring in full bloom, sounds of construction can be heard all around Town along with the wonderful Spring songs of the returning birds. Inventory, like the number of warmer days is increasing slowly. Hopefully, this will drive a healthier real estate market in the coming months. Regardless, it looks to be a slow adjustment over the next several quarters. With interest rates hovering in the 6% range, fundamentals still need to change in order to return to a more balanced market between buyers and sellers.

Prepared buyers are still finding their dream homes though, and sellers are taking advantage of the still historically strong seller’s market. Patience, knowledge, preparedness and flexibility are key – whether buying or selling in these truly unusual times.

My goal is to keep you engaged in this unprecedented Outer Cape Real Estate market by providing you with news and market developments as they happen. Watch for interesting stories in your email and on social media at jon.goode.com. I hope to see you on the streets soon. Stay well.

The Jon Goode Market Report – January 2024

4Q2023 MARKET REPORT

FOR BOTH BUYERS AND SELLERS – PATIENCE IS THE OPERATIVE WORD

The Provincetown and the Outer Cape real estate markets had mixed results in 2023 as stubborn, lower levels of inventory continue to lead to lower sales. But, patient and determined buyers are still finding their dream homes even as demand continues to influence the market and sales prices continue to increase in all categories here on the Outer Cape. Interestingly enough though, of Provincetown, Truro and Wellfleet, it is Wellfleet that had the most balanced, all-around market, with both higher sales and higher prices.

This classic lower inventory and high demand dynamic is also exacerbated by a profound lack of ability to construct additional dwelling units, especially here in Provincetown where there is almost no place to expand. Limited availability, along with continued higher interest rates – currently around 7% – continues to put additional strains on the market.

Even with these less-than-optimal conditions, our Provincetown and Outer Cape real estate market ALWAYS seems to outperform the rest. I believe that will not change going into 2024.

PROVINCETOWN

In Provincetown, sales were down in every category, but sale prices were up! Condominium sales were down 26% from 135 to 100. Sale prices were up 5% from $868K to $937K. 28% of all those sales sold over the asking price. This does mean though, that 72 units (72% of total sales) did sell at or below asking. This provides some comfort to buyers as many mid-market properties are selling at or below asking prices.

There are only 19 condominiums on the market listed in MLS as of January 3rd. The average asking price for these condominiums is $1.036M ($1,583 per square foot).

Single-family home sales were down 39% from 31 sales last year to 19 sales this year. The average sales price increased 10% to $2.4M from $2.19M.

Currently, there are only 15 single-family properties on the market with an average asking price of $4.1M ($1,523 per square foot).

TRURO AND WELLFLEET

Both Truro and Wellfleet performed generally even with last year, as inventory levels more commensurate with demand, provided a better balance between buyers and sellers.

The average single-family sales price in Truro was flat at $1.6M. Sales were up 9% to 36 from 33. Currently, there are only 10 single-family properties on the market with an average asking price of $1.873M ($982 per square foot).

Truro condominium sales also decreased – down by 5% to 24 from 25 last year. The average sale price decreased 13% to $495K from $570K. There are only 5 condominiums on the market with an average asking price of $676K ($1,145 per square foot).

In Wellfleet, the average sales price of single-family homes was up 17% to $1.2M from $1.02M. Sales were up 6% to 66 from 62. There are currently only 13 single-family properties on the market in Wellfleet withan average asking price is $2.514M ($896 per square foot).

AS WE WELCOME THE NEW YEAR, WE WILL CONTINUE TO SEE STRONG MARKET ACTIVITY AS BUYERS SEARCH FOR THEIR VERY SPECIAL HOME HERE ON THE OUTER CAPE

Most importantly, as we begin the New Year, we are all hoping that 2024 brings peace and a much-needed respite from all the drama and the uncertainty occurring throughout the world.

Closer to home, as we close out the real estate market for 2023 on the Outer Cape, I believe we will continue to see higher average sales prices along with an extremely vigorous, buyer demand for Outer Cape property. The upward pressure on prices caused by this ongoing high demand and sustained lack of inventory will undoubtedly have a strong effect on sales throughout all of 2024. And patient buyers, who are actively searching for a new home here on the Outer Cape, will hopefully find just what they are looking for in the new year.

Even as some of these, and other outside forces effect our beloved Provincetown and Outer Cape real estate market, we can still take comfort in knowing we will continue outperform most other markets.

How lucky are we!

I am committed to providing you with the safest means to view, purchase and sell real estate on the Outer Cape. I have learned to do business safely and comfortably during Covid, while still providing the expected high level of service and attention you require. My business philosophy has always been that the best-informed buyers and sellers are the most satisfied with their results.

Watch for interesting stories in your email and on social media here at jon.goode.com. I look forward to seeing you soon. And leave it to me to keep you informed.
