We hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend! The weather has finally cooled off here in the Outer Banks, and the summer crowds have thinned out a bit. There are still quite a few people visiting the beaches and taking advantage of the near perfect fall weather. We did see some rainstorms right before the holiday weekend, but they were short-lived. Other parts of the country have not been so lucky. Our thoughts go out to anyone who has been affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Unfortunately, there is another named storm in the Atlantic that we are keeping our eye on. It is still too soon to tell if it will head this way.
On a more positive note, we are excited that the activity levels in real estate has picked up a good amount in the past few weeks. There have been more inquiries about properties, and many people making trips down to look at what is available on the market. This indicates a strong fall for OBX sales. In addition to the inquiries, we have also witnessed quite a few properties come on the market and go under contract quicker than normal, which is great news for all sellers. And for potential buyers, the good news is that the inventory has increased since the end of the rental season, giving more opportunities to find the perfect property. Overall, the market has come back to life after the summer season, and we are happy to help anyone who has any real estate needs.
As always, please don’t hesitate to call or email with any questions, or if you need anything. If you’ve been thinking about selling, we are happy to assist you with a free market analysis of your property. If you or anyone you know is interested in buying a property, we would love to help find the perfect home on the Outer Banks. Please feel free to stop by our office in Duck to say hello if you’re in the area. We hope everyone has a great fall!
