How the Outer Banks Real Estate Market Has Changed

Below is some historical data on residential sold properties. Looking at this information, I think 2018 will not reach the 2017 number of residential units sold but it will be fairly close. That seems to be a trend as our market recovers – a dip here and there and an increase here and there.  I wouldn’t put too much weight into the median price statistic.  Median price increases and decreases are impacted by a lot of factors. 

There have been 3 sales over the $3 million dollar mark this year, and two of those closed in May.  Last year, in the same time period, there was one sale over $3 million.  More high-end sales will cause that figure to rise but it doesn’t necessarily mean prices are increasing across the board.   All and all, our market activity is a refreshing change from seven years ago.
