Ship Bottom Real Estate Market

Ship Bottom Real Estate in the First Quarter of 2014 saw a much lower average sales price than past quarters. While activity was about normal, most of the homes sold were storm damaged homes which drove the average price much lower. Also hurting the situation was the absence of any high end sales. The lower average sales price may seem worrisome, however there is a positive side to the story. These homes were sold as tear downs to mostly cash buyers. They will be torn down and new homes built in their place. This extensive reinvestment in the Ship Bottom real estate market will help home prices rise in the long term.
