Banks Association of Realtors Report
Single Family Unit Sales Volume Up...10%
Outer Banks Association of Realtors March 2015 Report Summary: "NOTE: Between February and March of this year, the number of listings placed under contract jumped from 128 units to 370 units. This jump can be directly attributed to a change in definition of Under Contract Continue to Show and Under Contract and should NOT be used as a market indicator.
Overall Residential sales – Unit sales for single family homes is running at 7% with 280 units sold in the first quarter as compared with 262 units in the first quarter of 2014 and unit sales volume is up 10%. However, condominium unit sales are down 18%.
Land Sales – Unit sales were up 27% with 99 units sold in 2015 compared with 78 units in 2014. Residential lot sales are up an impressive 29%; however, total sales volume is down 7%. Still a good year for land sales.
Inventory – Overall, total inventory is down 10%. Residential inventory is down 7%, land Inventory is down by 14% and commercial inventory is down by 21%.
Foreclosures – Although the Dare County foreclosure data is not complete for March, it appears that the number of foreclosure filings has been hovering around 12 per month for the first quarter.
Distressed Property sales – The number of short sales for the first quarter of 2014 was up 25% with the total volume sold up 68%. The MLS believes this is primarily because of the sale of two high value listings and is an anomaly and not a long term trend. We will continue to watch this area closely. Bank Owned sales were down 32%." see full report in pdf file format
