We are continuing to see strong sales of distressed homes.  Distressed homes are those that are short sales or bank owned.  (The final phase of foreclosure is the bank taking possession, after they take possession they need to sell.  Often this can lead to great opportunities for those looking to buy a foreclosed home.)  In September we saw distressed homes account for 25% of all sold homes on the Outer Banks.  Of the 95 homes sold, 17 were bank owned and 7 were short sales.   

When we see such a high percentage of distressed home sales, it lets us know there are still significant opportunities available for those who are looking to buy a home in the Outer Banks.  If you are interested in buying a foreclosure or short sale in the Outer Banks, join our…

September on the Outer Banks saw 95 residential homes sold.  This was down 3 from the month of August.  When compared to the month of August we saw less homes sold, but more pieces of land.  The month of September ended up having 2 more sales that August due to the number of closings on vacant land. 

While under 100 homes sold in September it does seem as if there are a number of people interested inpurchasing homes in the Outer Banks.  Hopefully a strong October is to follow to keep the progress of the last 5 months going.  It does seem as if home prices are starting to stabilize along the OBX.
