Ocean City Real Estate: Worcester County Property Sales Report for 2018

If you are in Ocean City this week, you may notice a couple of changes as you drive down Coastal Highway. The speed limit, normally 40 mph through North Ocean City, has been reduced to 30 mph, and Downtown, the speed limit has also been reduced. This is due to the expected, unauthorized H2Oi Pop-Up Rally.  It is reasonable to expect heavier than usual traffic, noise and strict enforcement of vehicle laws during the week and weekend.

For those involved in the Ocean City real estate market in 2018, there was much reason to celebrate: All data indicates the sales market was strong throughout Worcester County in the last year.

The following report takes into consideration all properties sold from January 1 – December 31, 2018 in Worcester County, Maryland.

Ocean City beach properties


Ocean City saw 1093 Condos sold in 2018. The lowest sale price for these properties was $69,900, for a property at 407 St Louis Ave. The property was originally listed for $84,000 and sold after 173 days on the market (DOM) on Sept. 21, 2018.

The highest sale price for condos was $1,525,000. Pyramid’s penthouse brought that sum on Dec. 14, 2018 after 393 DOM at an original list price of $1,850,000.

14 available condos in Worcester County are priced between $99,000-$574,850

There are 336 homes for sale between $12,900-$2,700,000


As you may have noticed, the market is fairly stripped of available properties. For example, 1150 total condos were sold in 2018, yet there are only 475 on the market at the time of this report.

This also holds true for single-family homes: While 889 homes sold in 2018, there are only 336 currently available for purchase.

Similarly, all of Maryland saw higher sales in 2018. Further, there was a marked increase in the sold prices between 2017 and 2018. 

If you are interested in selling your condo or home with less competition, this may be a good time to list your property on the sales market.
