Over-All numbers don’t show localized trends on the Outer Banks

Outer Banks Assocation of RealtorsThe over-all home sales and home prices on the Outer Banks have continually declined over the last two years. HOWEVER, the key word here is “over-all” which includes all areas on the Outer Banks and averages it out. It doesn’t show what individual communities are showing in their home sales and home prices. Even though the median home prices have declined in recent years, several areas have made an extremely healthy come.
