We’re reporting that 2108 ended up being the second best year for OBX real estate sales since the boom years of the early 2000’s. The number of transactions in the local MLS was down just slightly compared to 2017. Poor weather and higher interest rates may have had an effect on sales. A great piece of news is that the average and median sales prices went up in just about every area. The sold price per square foot also continues to climb as sellers are able to demand more for their properties.
