Outer Banks real estate market update

It's been a while since I've posted.  Outer Banks real estate has been really busy and kind to me.  This year on the Outer Banks is no exception.  Vacationers and Investment seekers are still searching for their dream vacation home with which they can enjoy in the off-season and rent out during the peak season to help subsidize the mortgage payments.  Prices are still climbing.  This year's average price for an oceanfront investment is $1.6M compared to last year's average of $1.2M.  That's quite a jump.  However, last year's average days on the market was 150 and there were only 91 listings.  This year's average days on the market is 179 and there are 149.  So, although prices are climbing, inventory is also increasing, which is good for the buyer.  More inventory means more competition and the sellers out there are going to have to pull the reigns on their asking prices if they want to sell their Outer Banks investment home.  For more information on the Outer Banks real estate market or investments or second homes or even if you are relocating, call me, Wende Pritchard at All About OBX real estate.  I can help.  I've been in the business for 17 years, I've the owner of All About OBX Real Estate and I give personal service and help you through the process every step of the way.  Look on my website or Zillow for testimonies and reviews!  Testimonies from buyers and sellers and Buyer and seller reviews on Zillow.  Call or text Wende Pritchard at 252-207-1147 or email me.

2014 has been an amazing year for real estate on the Outer Banks-  Buyers are buying the deals still available and the sellers are enjoying a slight increase in market values -  Although the number of available foreclosures has decreased drastically here on the Outer Banks, it is said that the number of foreclosures are starting to spike again-  Additionally, with the updated city appraisals a couple of years ago, sellers have been forced to reevaluate the value of their home so prices are still very affordable and sellers are still selling.  If you've been sitting on the fence, call me and I will find you a deal PLUS, with All About OBX Real Estate, you get a credit at closing for closing costs.  No other company on the Outer Banks can match that!
