Despite well below normal temperatures for all of January, the Outer Banks real estate market was hot.  We saw an increase of 102% for residential sales, 82 sales in 2010 to 40 sales in January 2009.  Distress sales, bank owned homes and short sales made up 40% of all sales.  If January is any indicator of the coming spring, we are looking at a much improving real estate market.

  • 22 homes sold in the $300,000 - $399,000 price range 
  • $100,000 increase in residential median sold price
