“Last year was a crazy year,” says Laura Anderson, president of the Mid-Shore Board of Realtors. “When COVID first hit, honestly, I thought I’d be claiming bankruptcy. I think most agents felt the same way. We never would have imagined that the market would take off the way it did.”
The residential real estate boom has been good for the Talbot County economy, helping to support not just realtors, but construction workers, landscapers, home interiors stores, and even antiques shops. Still, prices are on the rise and competition for houses has gotten fierce.
“A lot of sellers are not accepting contingencies,” Anderson explains. “Some people are buying houses without seeing them and some are putting in offers with ‘coming soon’ status.”
