This time of year is naturally slower than most so we need to look creatively at what inventory is available. Nationally, increasing inventory levels have become the norm giving buyers additional choices, but in our contrary market we still have few choices, so being creative and resourceful as buyers is a must.
There are only 17 condos on the market with an average asking price of $844K. (Last year at his time there were 8). There are only 9 single family properties on the market with an average asking price of $3.4M*. (Last year there were 5) This average is skewed high because of a couple of very expensive properties.
Instead of just one “Listing of the Week” this week, I thought I would feature a couple of my favorite properties that are on the market.
4 Upper Miller Hill Road #2, is a two bedroom two bath condo with 1,492 square feet. It is being marketed at $999K.
MLS Remarks: This contemporary home was designed and built in 1987 to optimize the 360 degree views from one of the highest elevations in Town. You’ll be inspired by sweeping views of the harbor-front on one side and the back beach and ocean in the National Seashore on the other. The building is a two unit condo and this one occupies the entire top two floors as well as one room on the first floor and exclusive use of the driveway and garage. An outside stairway leads up from the driveway to a 2nd floor deck. Enter the great room with two-story ceilings, a fireplace and decks on both sides. A spacious kitchen is off the great room and the full bath and BR 1 complete this floor. Up on the 3rd floor the primary BR has a half bath and again decks on both sides. The siding, decks and doors and windows are mostly original and and need to be replaced. Listed square footage includes the garage, approximately 337 SF. This listing is one of ours at Beachfront-Realty.com.
