Building Your Own Hatteras Island Home?


Our Builder Referral Program makes it easy!

If your dream is to build a home of your own design at the beach, let us help you. Outer Beaches Realty has a “Builder Referral Program” which gives you the option of working through a Realtor® you know and trust. We have builders whom we are comfortable recommending. We have worked with them, and – most importantly – we have satisfied homeowners in our rental program who have used them. Call us for information at 866-627-6627. We think you might be surprised at how much fun building your beach house can be!

Let Outer Beaches Realty represent you!


There are various ways in which real estate agents may represent buyers and sellers in a transaction. When you purchase a cottage or a home site, you may want the agent to work exclusively for you. This is known as Buyer Agency. The Outer Beaches sales staff is knowledgeable about the forms of representation, and our sales representatives will take the time to help you make the choice that is best for your personal circumstances. Regardless of whom the agent represents, you can be assured that Outer Beaches agents will always be honest and disclose to you all material facts which the agent knows about the property you are considering for purchase.


SELLER INFORMATION


Good News for Sellers!

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. A 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.


The biggest advantage of listing your home with Outer Beaches?
We provide the highest visibility with three key assets:

Our Reach

Outer Beaches reaches hundreds of thousands of travelers every year, and each is a potential buyer. Combining the highest quality of cottages and rentals with the broadest rental brochure distribution of any Hatteras Island real estate company, Outer Beaches can offer your home or property an unparalleled level of exposure.

Our Team

With a team of dedicated, full-time sales agents and office locations in Waves, Avon, and Hatteras Village, we are able to canvass all of Hatteras Island and cater to potential buyers. Having an office close to your cottage provides a strategic advantage, as buyers tend to look for properties first in the vicinity of the office they contact.

This service enables us to cross-promote your property with more than 800 agents and affiliates in a network from Corolla to Hatteras Village.
