Maine Real Estate (January 23, 2017) – Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty, with offices in Portland, Kennebunk, Brunswick, Damariscotta, and Camden, announced today that it again retained the #1 Ranking for 2016 Luxury Property sales in Maine. The company reported that it topped its own record for single family home sales priced over $1 million. According to Maine Listings statistics, Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty closed 90 transaction sides totaling $139.5 million in property value. The statistics also show that the company held a very substantial lead over the #2 participant in this highly competitive market segment. With nearly triple the number of transaction sides and in excess of 40% more dollar volume than the next closest competitor, the company continues its leadership role in both listing and selling high value homes in Maine.
Maine Listings statistics show that 218 homes sold for $1 million or more in 2016. Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty reported that it participated as buyer agent, listing agent, and/or both on 72 homes of the 218 sold representing a 33% market share with respect to homes sold in the Luxury segment of the Maine Real Estate market.
“This is an extraordinary result. It is so rewarding to see all of our hard work in developing an incredible global marketing plan and unique property presentation which has really propelled us to a new level” said Chris Lynch, President. “While we have held the top ranking in the Luxury Property market for several years, this is our best result ever!”
Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty is also proud to report that it connected local, regional, national, and international buyers to its own listing portfolio with nearly 25% of its Luxury market listings selling to one of its own sourced buyers. “Our market reach and the quality of our listings have been critical in bringing the best buyers to our listings statewide” adds Lynch. “Our affiliation with Sotheby’s International Realty offers us access to a network of buyers that continues to feed our growth, but it doesn’t stop there. We launched several major advertising initiatives this past year which were reflective of our growth in terms of both the quantity and the quality of the homes themselves.”
Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty attributes its success to offering its clients a very strong package of marketing services including critical professional photography, 3D Virtual Tours, glossy print advertising, global property distribution through its exclusive network of agents, and luxury branding through its affiliation with Sotheby’s International Realty.
“I can’t underestimate the impact of our new state of the art property buyer tools which provide our clients with a rich visual experience and a real sense of familiarity with our listings,” Lynch concludes. “It is pretty clear that we are seeing more well qualified buyers coming into the market and we are so fortunate that so many have selected us to represent them in their purchase decisions.”
