Weekly Real Estate Market Report for September 5, 2012

Can you believe it’s September already! I love the Fall here at the beach! We have a lot of exciting events in the coming weeks including the Seafood Blues & Jazz Festival (Gregg Allman!), the Salty Paws Festival, and the Fall Festival in downtown Wilmington!
While sales activity slows a little in the Fall, we are staying  very busy…there is no rest at Coastwalk Real Estate!
Looking back at the year so far, I’m pleased to report that as a company, our sales  (through August 2012) have exceeded what we accomplished in all of 2011.  
As a family-owned business that focus on quality, not quantity…we are very excited to share this with you!
We have accomplished this with the help of great prices, low interest rates and our high impact marketing. At Coastwalk Real Estate, we combine local market expertise, along with aggressive marketing, and good old fashion hard work! Our team of agents just amaze me!
So what does it take to get a home SOLD in this market? 1) Your home should be priced to reflect current comps. There are many variables, so it’s crucial to have an experienced agent on your side. 2) Your home should be in good showing condition, both inside and out. 3) You need maximum, high impact marketing that generates buyer leads for your home.

Year to date on the island, there have been 245 home and condo sales according to MLS. Prices range from $70,000 (for a Cabana Suites condo) to $1,025,000 for a nice waterfront home on the North End. There are also 74 additional homes and condos that are PENDING, or that have contingent contracts.
For the year, this puts the island on track to sell nearly 400 homes!
With regards to land sales, there have been 59 home sites SOLD on the island this year according to MLS, with an additional 17 that are PENDING or that have a contingent contract.
All-in-all, I am very pleased with the signs of progress this year in the real estate market.
