Happy spring everyone! We think it finally arrived anyway, after a roller coaster ride of weather the last few weeks which included 80 degree days, 30 degree days, and a very unusual 3-day wind storm that caused a lot of sound-side flooding. Whew! We are ready for lots of calm, sunny beach days here soon.
On the real estate front, things are HOT. The market has been very active, to say the least. We are seeing properties go under contract at a steady pace, and new listings continue to come up daily. Rental bookings for the summer appear to be strong, and we are expecting another busy summer of visitors. It will be interesting to see if the sales activity slows down, as it usually does in the summer, or if we are in for a full year of active sales. It’s been awhile since we’ve seen that, but the spring market certainly has indicated a rebound. Let’s hope it keeps up.
We are expecting lots of folks in the weeks around Easter and spring break, so we’re anticipating seeing even more properties go under contract as buyers try to close on something before the rental season begins.
Some fun news, the new waterpark located just over the bridge on the Currituck Mainland will be open for business this summer, and they are expecting big crowds for sure. This is something totally new for our area, and lots of folks are really excited about it. Check out the website for the park at h2obxwaterpark.com.
As always, please don’t hesitate to call/email us if you need anything. If you’ve been thinking about selling, we are happy to provide you with a free market analysis of your property. If you know anyone who is interested in buying, we’d love to help them find a beach home! Hope everyone has a great spring break and look forward to seeing some of you in Duck very soon.
