Despite the buyer's market of the past few years, we are seeing encouraging signs that a new cycle of growth in the Island's real estate may be forming. Research reports point to a significant increase in sales as the baby boom generation matures and focuses its buying power on vacation property. In addition, a recent survey by the National Association of Realtors® reflected a very positive change in sentiment concerning the percentage of second-home owners who plan to purchase additional property in the next two years. This is great news for Hatteras Island!
If you are a property owner, our sales staff would like to talk with you concerning the probable sale price of your home or lot and your interest in selling. You will find that our comprehensive marketing plan is designed to produce results.
Consider the benefits of listing your property through Outer Beaches Realty:
Successful marketing requires the exposure of your property to large numbers of prospective buyers. Outer Beaches is in touch with a vast number of people and each one is a potential buyer. Outer Beaches Realty is among the largest rental programs on Hatteras Island - over 500 cottages. Over 10,000 reservations each year are taken and 40,000 rental brochures are distributed annually.
Wherever a prospective buyer is located on the island, Outer Beaches has an office to serve their needs. Having an office close to your cottage enhances marketing results because most people tend to look for properties in the vicinity of the office they contact.
