Martha’s Vineyard, New England’s largest island, is located seven miles off Cape Cod, accessible by ferries or airplane. Whether you are visiting the ‘down-Island’ (Tisbury, Oak Bluffs and Edgartown) or pastoral ‘up-Island (Chilmark, Aquinnah and West Tisbury), Martha’s Vineyard is sure to enchant you.
Vineyard lighthouses, ports and maritime history all contribute to the charm of the island. Most visitors arrive at beautiful Vineyard Haven harbor, welcomed by East and West Chop Lights, two of the island’s five distinctive lighthouses, others at Edgartown, Aquinnah, and Cape Poge.
Martha’s Vineyard offers restaurants, shops and galleries and vibrancy. The perfect island destination.
Martha’s Vineyard Q2 experienced significant decline in year over year property trades, from 100 sales in 2019 to only 63 in 2020. A 5 year Q2 low. Specific to submarkets, Edgartown had 25 out of the 63 Single Family sales showing the largest volume of trades. COVID19 is solely to blame for buyers inactivity to get to the island to see property and the fact that there was not enough inventory on the market for buyers to choose from.
The most encouraging news for Martha’s Vineyard was that the average selling price was up 28% from Q2 2019. This increase shows that there is lack of availability and displays the underlying strength of the Martha’s Vineyard market.
Q3 is off to a strong start as people have been able to travel to the island as travel ban and stay at home orders have been lifted. Martha’s Vineyard follows the trend of similar vacation destinations in New England such as the Cape and Nantucket.
