Let’s take a look at the Portsmouth real estate market for the period June 1, 2011 through June 23, 2011. Currently there are 209 Active listings in the 03801 zip code and 25 Pending (sold but not closed yet).
The moon was full last night which was a good reason to join Portsmouth radio station WXQR and their monthly Portsmouth Harbor Cruise. This is a very cool two and half hour boat ride from the Isles of Shoals Steamship Company dock on Market Street near downtown Portsmouth to out past the harbor entrance and into the Atlantic Ocean.
The second Saturday in June is traditionally Market Square Day in Portsmouth. MSD is a huge street festival with arts, crafts, music, a 10K road race, and lots of other great things for visitors and residents alike.
It’s early June 2011 and the first 5 months of real estate sales is past so let’s take a look and see how we did and what the current market looks like.
The chart below compares the first 5 months of sales, listings, and pending activity with the same time periods for the past 9 years.
