Nantucket Real Estate | The Year in Review

Another Billion-Dollar Year in Nantucket Real Estate!

Nantucket Real Estate Home Value It's official... Nantucket is still the place to buy real estate.

Every year Nantucket exhibits a new real estate trend and it's our job here at Jordan Real Estate to track Nantucket Real Estate trends so we can better serve our clients.  There have been years where antique homes on Nantucket were a trend, then other years there was a hot neighborhood on island that people were really interested in. What was 2019's real estate trend on Nantucket? It was turn-key with a pool.  (That doesn't mean that there isn't a buyer for your antique home.)

2019 was the first year of the short-term rental tax on Nantucket Rental properties. We did see a slight effect on the rental market as a result.  Most homeowners were wise to not raise rents, as the 11.7% tax was enough of an extra expense for rental clients.

Nantucket got some press in Barron's this past year which is good news for sellers on the island. Nantucket has the highest value for any vacation-home destination in the country. Nantucket county is made up of 55.5% vacation seasonal/vacation homes. A vacation home county is one described by Barron's as a county with 20% or more of its residential property being seasonal.
