Like much of the Greater Portland area, the median selling price in Yarmouth improved in 2016, rising to record level of $414,750.  Constrained inventory has some impact on this 5.1% increase, as buyers moved to purchase properties as soon as they became available, as homes sold (DOM) in 22 days.

In 2016 there were 40 sales priced above $500,000 compared to 40 in 2015, representing the second consecutive year of growth in this segment. The median price was essentially unchanged at $600,000. Sales of homes priced over $1,000,000 doubled from four to eight in 2016.

The segment of homes priced between $200,000 - $400,000 dropped from 50.4% of the total sales mix in 2015 to 45.6% in 2016.  The median price in this category was $277,500 and time on market was only 8 days – nearly half the time required for the overall Yarmouth market.
Condo sales are an important component of the Yarmouth market, yet sales dropped from 33 in 2015 to only 19 in 2016, reflecting an overall shortage in inventory.  Those that did sell were priced at 3.3% of the original list price.
