Nantucket Real Estate Market Update

The Nantucket real estate market slowdown, prevalent for 2022, continued through the first two months of 2023. Although we hesitate to make year-over-year comparisons after just two months of activity, the decline in sales is very noticeable. The 23 house sales are the lowest since 2010, and house dollar volume is the lowest since 2013. Land sales show a similar pattern, with just $4.6 million in sales on 3 transactions. However, it is important to note that total dollar volume is skewed due to the sale of a storage center for $42 million earlier this month, from Go Store It Nantucket LLC to Go Store It Nantucket Storage DST on Tomahawk Road. The 0.95-acre property and business triggered a land bank fee of $840,000, the second largest transfer fee received in its 40+ year history.
