This time of year on Orcas we usually see a winding down of visitors to the island. The island again becomes about community and renewing friendships that can wane during our busy summers. We can reconnect over kids sports or community events. This year everything has changed due to Covid. Sadly we can no longer enjoy kids sports or attend community events. We have seen an exponential growth in the Real Estate Market here on Orcas. Visitors are still coming, lines form out the doors of local restaurants and the number below reflect what happened here in October. Crazy numbers: Year over Year for Single Family Homes:
166% pending sales, 120% new listings and 72.2% in closed sales for the month of October. Year to date:  up 56% in closed sales and 54% in pending sales. Please give me a call to help you with your Orcas Island Real Estate needs.
