HOUSING MARKET

Things you should know about the Outer Banks Real Estate Market:

  • There's no such thing as a national real estate market. If you read the newspapers, it's easy to get the idea that real estate markets are the same everywhere. If conditions are bad in Orlando or Los Angeles or Chicago, they must be bad everywhere, right? Wrong. All real estate is local. When you're looking to buy or sell, pay attention first to sales price trends, volume and inventory in your target market or region, rather than to misleading headlines about national sales trends.

  • Owning a home builds wealth in a way that renting can't. According to the Federal Reserve Board, the average renter's net worth is $4,800. Contrast that to the average homeowner's net worth of $171,000. Clearly, it pays to own a home, as the hard-earned equity you build will pay future dividends.

  • It's a prime time for second homes. Savvy investors and prospective retirees understand how important real estate is to their portfolios. Nationally, about one third of all home sales are second homes or vacation properties; in North Carolina, that figure is nearly 40 percent - largely because of our inventory and desirable locations in the mountains and on the coast.

  • It makes sense to use a North Carolina realtor. If you had a $150,000 legal question, would you deal with it without an attorney's assistance? If you had a $150,000 income tax issue, would you dare risk not consulting a CPA? There are nearly 45,000 realtors in North Carolina who subscribe to a strict code of ethics and are expected to maintain the highest level of knowledge of the process of buying and selling a home.

  • If you're a seller, be patient ... and smart. Price your home correctly - your home's value is what someone is willing to pay for it, not the price that you think it should sell for. Competitive pricing is the single biggest reason that a home sells or does not sell. Realtors know the marketplace and help you determine an optimum sales price.
