Overall, inventory is up with Commercial properties having the highest percentage at 17%. Lots/Land inventory is up for the third month in a row at 12%. This may indicate a great time to build! However, Residential inventory is down 2% which still indicates that it may be harder to to buy a a house now.

"Michelle sent us listing for months before we came to nc to look. We made a list of favorites from nags head to corolla. Michelle helped us decide on corolla based on our needs and the amenities of corolla. We spent a week looking and ended up finding a house in crown point. Michelle arranged for a home inspection which identified some issues and helped us negotiate a price reduction. Additionally she gave us an excellent recommendation for a contractor who we used for several remodeling projects. She was a pleasure to work with and I would gladly recommend her to anyone needing a realtor in OBX."
