SAN JUAN ISLAND

SAN JUAN ISLAND REAL ESTATE MARKET SUMMARY

Photo Credit Kellyephotographee

In reviewing the year-end results for 2018, the sales dollar volume for the real estate market in San Juan County per the Northwest Multiple Listing Service was $305,674,278 which reflects a tiny increase in volume of 1.5% over 2017 when the volume was $300,622,909. The percentage of growth this year was pretty flat which was evidenced in all preceding quarter end numbers. The County closed an average of 45 transactions per month which is 9% below last year.

Inventory levels on San Juan Island are very similar to last year at this time. The notable difference is in the amount of escrow transactions which reflects a 48% decrease.

Total volume on San Juan Island in 2018 was $126,419,356 as compared to $147,981,053 in 2017. The decrease was 14.5%. Of all the islands, Orcas performed the best with a volume increase of 13% but with a transaction decrease of 7%. The top 3 production agents in 2018 in the County, all work on Orcas and rocked their year.

Inventory did have an impact on our sales volume this year in some categories.The inventory for affordably priced homes is very low. Currently, a buyer needs to spend at least $375,000 to purchase a single family dwelling that isn’t a remodel. There are some condominium listings slightly under $300,000. The lowest water view home is priced at $559,000 with the lowest waterfront cabin at $460,000, but it has tidal conditions.
