The Outer Banks real estate market shattered every sales record in the book for 2021!! To say the market is hot is an understatement, it has gone nuclear!! It seems for every listing hitting the market many are getting multiple offers. The median days on market for a new listing in 2021 was an astounding 12!! The average sale price was up 24.5% from 2020 and 36.5% since 2019. The number of houses sold has increased 37% since 2019 and with no slowdown in sight. Inventory is at an all-time low with less than 300 houses currently on the market. For comparison typically we see approximately 750 to 1000 active listings. It's the best time to sell a house since I have been in the business. If you have a house to sell or know anyone that wants to sell now is the time. The 2021 rental season was a record year for rentals and 2022 is shaping up to be just as good if not better. More and more people are discovering the Outer Banks and finding out how much cheaper it is to own a property compared to other vacation/resort destinations.
 

Below is how each town ended up for 2021:

Corolla                         +30%
Duck                            +25%
Southern Shores         +28%
Kitty Hawk                   +27%
Kill Devil Hills              +24%
Colington                    +20%
Nags Head                   +30%
Hatteras Island           +39%

 

Mortgage rates are starting to climb, and my lenders are telling me this will continue into 2022. Rates have moved to the mid 3% range in the last 3 weeks and are forecasted to go higher as the year goes on. As rates go up buying power is decreased. Historically rates are still very low and if you are looking to buy now is the time to jump in before they get higher. There are more lending options now than in the past few years with loan programs with 10% and 20% down. Even though home prices have gone up rental income has also increased. With rental income up, tourist demand up, and low mortgage rates home affordability on the Outer Banks is the best it has been in years. Whether you are looking for a 2nd home, investment, primary, or retirement property now is a great time to own on the Outer Banks.

I have sold all my listings and looking for more. Please let me know if you or someone you know is interested in selling. You may be surprised at what you can get for your property, and it does not cost you anything to list. Find out what I can sell your property for!!

Over the last 18yrs I rank in the top 10% of all Realtors on the Outer Banks in total sales volume and number of houses sold. Contact me today to get the process started to find your Outer Banks property.
