Ocean Village in Summer Beach

In 2023 there were only a total of three sales in Ocean Village. Of those Gary & Fran Farnsworth had 2 listings & 2 sales and were the only Amelia Island agents to list two homes. One listing sold for a then record Ocean Village sale price and the other listing sold in 2 days, for full price with multiple offers.

Summer Beach residents Gary & Fran Farnsworth have more than a dozen sales in Ocean Village and neighboring Sea Chase.

Amelia Island Oceanfront Sales

Or a more appropriate headline would be....Lack of Sales!

The majority of Amelia Island's oceanfront homes are located along South Fletcher Avenue and currently there are now more homes for sale than there have been in years and they are not selling.  Why is that? Taxes? Are the homes overvalued? Is lack of privacy an issue on S. Fletcher relative to the price point? Has the oceanfront luxury demand here waned? Since January 2023 the highest sale price on S. Fletcher has only been $1.8 million.

In past years on Amelia Island when there has been a glut of similar properties for sale, an anxious seller often will lower their price substantially and other sellers have little choice but to follow suit or come off the market. We shall see what happens since the oceanfront "buyer market" is definitely showing it's resistance.

More answers and clarity will come before May 2024 when the prime annual Amelia Island buying season ends.
