Fewer listings for sale, less days on the market, and higher sale prices in just about every property category were the result that seems to starting off 2022.

Year End Market Trends – Residential Condominium Year Ended 12/31/2021

This set of statistics, for residential condominium homes is a bit misleading, in my professional opinion. The average sale price definitely increased, and I saw many sales over the listing price.  The total number sold is lower than the prior year and I see that as a result of fewer condominium homes coming to market through the year.  The increase in listings was greater as of 12/31/2021 and, again in my opinion and review of the market, that is a result of many “new to-be-built” options being brought to market.

2020                                                  2021
Residential Condo                           Residential Condo

Heritage Lake is a recreational condominium, and the only one in Northern Door County.  People have always found Heritage Lake to be a great entry into the Door County home experience, and that continued to a new level in 2021 with a dramatic increase in the average sale price and decrease in the days on market.

A Note About Days on Market

Generally properties were under contract with a few days and at the most two weeks.  The Days on Market as shown in the charts above appear longer because our  Multiple Listing Service does not feed out the under contract and pending sales, so the properties will remain showing as “active” until they are sold and marked so.

As of 12/31/2021 in the Northern Door County market there were 109 listings under contract or pending.
