Market Update-May 2020

 

The Outer Banks market started 2020 with a bang with sales ahead of 2019 and the average sale price at its highest point in 12 years then Covid-19 hit. Our market was on hold for April and May as visitors were restricted from visiting the Outer Banks. Since the restrictions were lifted the market has been on fire! Houses are flying off the market in days and the average sold price is up 4.5% so far in 2020.  Mortgage rates are amazingly in the low 3% range making borrowing money ridiculously cheap. Rates are forecasted to stay that way for most of 2020.  With a hot market the average days on market from the time a property is listed to closing is at the lowest point it is been since 2006 and quality homes are starting to run low. The average out of pocket expense for owning a property is approx. $500 to $1000 a month. The rental income takes care of paying for the utilities, taxes, insurance, management fees, and part of your mortgage. As stated, above mortgage rates have plunged to low 3% and good news is that lenders are loosening up requirements. Lenders are now offering loans up to $650,000 with only 10% down and loans over that up to $1M with 15% down with no Private Mortgage Insurance to qualified buyers. That is huge for anyone looking to get into a beach house with a minimal down payment. The loan limit for conventional loans was raised for 2020 from $484,350 to $510,000 allowing more people to qualify for conventional financing.  

 

Fill out the Property Valuation Form to find out what your beach house, condo, townhouse, or lot is worth.

 

Over the last 16yrs I rank in the top 10% of all Realtors on the Outer Banks in number of total sales and total volume sold. Contact me today to get the process started.
