This Outer Banks real estate market report is a monthly feature for my soundfronts OBX page and soundfronts.com website, intended to keep you informed of the local real estate market. •  Before we get started, I need to preface the report with some s,pula,ons and provide some context.

First - OBAR’s disclosure. It is printed on all of OBAR’s sta,s,cal reports and reads as follows: “This representa,on is based in whole or in part on data supplied by, and to the Subscribers of the Outer Banks Associa,on of REALTORS® Mul,ple Lis,ng Service.

Clearly, sales take place through FSBO’s, Agents who are not Realtors and therefore don’t have MLS access, etc. Personally, I don’t believe that’s a significant amount.

The Outer Banks market covered by OBAR is a bit unique. It’s a mixed market but it’s primarily a vaca,on/rental home market. Coverage stretches from lower Currituck County and the Dare County mainland, all along the beaches from Carova through Ocracoke.

Now for the numbers…

Our market con,nues to be strong! It remains a stable but rising Buyer’s market but by all counts, we had a banner year. Why? A Buyer’s market is when supply exceeds demand. With 10 and 16 months supply available, it’s clear that supply s,ll exceeds demand. We can’t begin to talk about a Seller’s market un,l there is less than 6 months supply/inventory available. That said, 2017 was the best year since 2005! Inventory con,nues to drop and prices are increasing. Both of these factors are indica,ve of a rising market.
