Martha's Vineyard real estate

The Martha’s Vineyard Show

Martha’s Vineyard has a reputation for being a popular and affluent summer community with fabulous beaches and authentic New England charm. Who is coming to Martha’s Vineyard, and why? And how has that changed? As New York area realtors we want to know why Martha’s Vineyard is not like other affluent beachy communities like the Hamptons or its island neighbors Nantucket and Block Island.
– Martha’s Vineyard is 96 square miles, compared to 70 in East Hampton (including east to Montauk). Block Island is only 9.7 square miles (and 40% of that is protected land conservation.) Nantucket island is 47 square miles.
– 17,000 people call the Vineyard home, but the populations swells to 200,000 in-season. Compare that to 28,000 in East Hampton, and 14,000 in Nantucket swelling to 50,000.
– the median listing on Nantucket is $3.9 million, and so much more affordable on the Vineyard at only $1.9 million in Edgartown and $1.3 million in Vineyard Haven. In East Hampton the median listing is $2.3 million.
– in 1974 Steven Spielberg filmed the movie Jaws on Martha’s Vineyard and the island now celebrates with an annual “Jawsfest”
– there are 19 beaches on the island. What percentage of them are public versus private?
​​​​​​​- President Bill Clinton, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton have been coming to Martha’s Vineyard since the 1990’s.
– President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama used to vacation here at Blue Heron Farm and decided to settle here permanently when they purchased 30 acres in 2019.​​​​​​​Who are the people who come for the summer, and what do they find there in summer?
How does the community change in the off-season?
How has the pandemic changed the community, and what is predicted?
Tell us about the luxury and exclusive neighborhoods of Martha’s Vineyard, and do they attract anyone besides ex-Presidents?
