Legacy Properties Sotheby's International Realty Reports Record Results in 2020 for Maine Home Sales(Sales Rise 45% Despite Complex Market Conditions)

Maine Real Estate (January 2021) – ​Legacy Properties Sotheby's International Realty​ , Maine's leading luxury property company, with offices in ​Portland​, ​Kennebunk​, ​Brunswick, ​Damariscotta​, and ​Camden​, announced today that it achieved record sales in 2020. The company reported annual property sales of $755 million as well as a record number of transactions totaling 1,034 sides. ​Legacy Properties Sotheby's International Realty ​ continues a long running string of record annual performance results.

"There has never been a more complex operating environment than 2020," said Chris Lynch, President. "There was an extended period of time where homes were nearly impossible to show followed by the inability for many out of state buyers to come to Maine to see properties for sale. We were so fortunate that we had made the largest investment in Maine in Matterport 3D Virtual Tours and Virtual Reality Tools allowing buyers to have an in depth and immersive tour without leaving their homes."

Legacy Properties Sotheby's International Realty is also proud to report that it ranks as the #4 real estate company in Maine for all sales statewide. ”We are very pleased with this result. The agencies ahead of us have many more agents than we do, but our productivity per agent is extraordinarily high and makes up the difference.” adds Lynch. "Our average sale price for all properties increased to more than $730,000 per property. We have excelled in our ability to put our buyer clients in a position to succeed in such a competitive market environment while also securing many of the most attractive listings in Maine."

Legacy Properties Sotheby's International Realty attributes its success to offering its listing clients a very strong package of marketing services including critical professional photography, ​Matterport 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​. "We continue to heavily invest in new marketing platforms and office efficiency systems to ensure that we can get the maximum exposure for homes in our network," states Chris Fortunato, Chief Operating Officer. "Our expanded relationship with the Wall Street Journal and Boston Globe are a couple of great examples of the many exciting marketing venues we offer."

“There is no doubt that there was a flight to quality when it comes to consumers selecting a real estate agent to help them,” Lynch concludes. “In 2020, both buyers and sellers migrated to more experienced agents with a long track record of success. Once again, we sold more homes for more money than any real estate company in the state.”
