Highest Year to Date Sales Volume Since 2005 at $1.18 Billion!
Records are being broken in the OBX real estate market. We have surpassed the 2005 record YTD total volume sold, having seen an astronomical $1.18 BILLION. October saw the highest monthly units sold at 456 which is an 104% increase compared to the YTD this time last year. Monthly under contracts were 97% higher than this time last year with 926 under contract.
Inventory is down drastically with total inventory dropping 44% to 1,337 units, of which residential dropped 56% to a mere 656 units available. Even lots and land dropped to 627 compared to this time last year! Speaking of lots and land, sales were up a staggering 163% with 84 units sold. That is an increase of 52 lots!
Another interesting record breaker deals with distressed inventory. Compared to October 2019, distressed inventory was down 95%.
In the town to town comparison, Corolla saw a jaw dropping 126% increase in units sold compared to October 2019. Duck was not far behind as far as percent increase with a rise of 114% compared to October 2019. Nags Head saw the largest increase in median value with a 15% increase equaling an epic $60,100.
