              Historically Low Inventory Creates a Perfect Storm for Home Sellers

              Marilyn Moses, Realtor, Ocean Park RealtyThe recent Housing Shortage Report from Realtor.com suggests the U.S. is experiencing the worst inventory shortage in two decades. This presents a definite challenge for people looking to buy a home. At the same time, it creates the perfect storm of opportunity for sellers.

              According to Realtor.com’s research, the housing shortage is a result of the baby boomer generation being unwilling to sell in the current market. In fact:

              • 72% of existing homeowners over the age of 55 feel their current home fits their needs.
              • 85% of those baby boomers don’t plan to sell their home in the next 12 months.
              • Baby boomers are keeping about 33 million properties off the market, a huge contributor to the historically low inventory the U.S. is experiencing.

              This historically low inventory means there couldn’t be a better time to sell. Low inventory means more competition, and more competition typically means higher offers and better deals for sellers, especially if you’re selling a starter home.

              Thanks to millennials entering the home buying market for the first time, starter homes are the most in demand selling point on the market. Since they experienced a 17% decrease in supply from 2016 to 2017, a great starter home will be an even hotter commodity in 2018.

              Key Takeaway

              For buyers, low inventory can be a problem. Low inventory is good news for sellers. It means there has never been a better time to put your property on the market!

              Available Inventory on Martha's Vineyard

              Approximately 275 properties available on the island include:

              • Vacation weeks in condo, condo, single family, multi family, and commercial in the 6 island towns
              • Under $500,000 total 33 properties
              • $500,000 - $700,000 total 47 properties
              • $700,000 - $1,000,000 total 59 properties
              • Over $1 million total 145 properties
              • Over $2 million total 83 properties

                What is Your Favorite Winter Activity on Martha's Vineyard?

                One of the most frequently asked questions from friends off island is what do you do in the winter.  I respond that most of us year-round residents enjoy the solitude and beauty of quiet winter days.  We love going to one of the many restaurants that remain open without worrying about crowds (www.mvchowdercompany.com) and finding a parking space with ease and getting our shopping done without waiting in long lines.  The Martha’s Vineyard Film Society has been a welcomed winter activity bringing not only Oscar-nominated films to the Island but streaming in opera on Sundays from January to April.

                When I am not in the office or taking an off-Island excursion I love to have family and friends over for cozy dinners of eggplant parmesan, lemon 

                pasta, stuffed pork chops or a yummy meatloaf.  As my daughter, son-in-law and two grandson’s live on Island it is great to be available for after school pick up’s and activities and a dinner in front of the fire. 

                There are also many options for staying in shape if you can’t get outdoors.  I like the pool-ates on Tuesday and Thursday mornings in the pool at the Mansion House in Vineyard Haven.  That all being said I will be happy to see Spring arrive soon.

                My favorite thing to do on Martha’s Vineyard is to enjoy and take advantage of the simple luxuries of Island living in the offseason.   The Island is serene, beautiful and lures me outside to enjoy the natural wonderland at my doorstep.  On a cold sunny day, I love to go hiking on the many Land Bank trails that meander around the countryside Up Island with striking views over the Sound.  In the evenings, I like to have good friends over to enjoy drinks by the roaring fireplace 

                and making a comfort meal for them from one of my grandmother’s Hungarian recipes…!

                By Alan Schweikert


                Every Sunday morning I look forward to picking a new island trail to hike and explore.  Typical morning involves meeting a couple of friends at the Black Dog Restaurant on Vineyard Haven Harbor.  Sitting by the window looking out over the Vineyard Haven Harbor sipping a coffee and eating a plate of loaded blueberry pancakes. Winter time on the Vineyard is magical! The air is fresh and crisp..The salty smells of the ocean and the bright full moons are memorable all year long!

                My favorite activity in the winter is to hike the various island Land Bank Trails. My favorite thing to do is public skating at the MV Ice Arena.  It's a healthy and fun family activity!
