2016 Year Report
The full report on New Hanover County Real Estate Sales. Go here


My name is Wade Wilson, I am a Realtor with Coldwell Banker Sea Coast.

We periodically put together a report showing real estate activity in different neighborhoods that are undergoing interesting trends, and Ardmore in recent years has met that profile. The neighborhood has been transitioning up for a number of years, but it seems like recently it has really taken off. The number of homes sold this year is already above the number sold last year, and it could be the best in ten years if a few more sales happen in coming months.

The average price of a sold home in Ardmore shot way up in 2016. The average sale price in 2015 was around 154k, the average sale price in 2016 was over $216k. Year to date in 2017 that number is down slightly, but still above 200k.

County Outlook
The number of home sales was up strongly again in 2016. There were close to 5000 homes sold in New Hanover County in 2016, around 9% more than in 2015, which was up 16% from 2014. The last time the numbers were this high was back in 2006, when 4933 homes were sold, and 2005, when 6500 homes were sold. My prediction at the beginning of 2016 was for a 7-11% increase, and while I hate to brag, I nailed that pretty good.

My prediction for 2017 will be another solid increase in home sales, I will say 8 - 12%. The economy appears to be moving ahead strongly, and this area continues to be a popular place for people relocating or retiring.

Signs are good that 2017 will be better in home sales and prices. The economy is growing, consumer confidence is high, unemployment is low and mortgage rates are great.

For the last several years it has getting easier and easier to sell a house. Low inventory and a steady number of buyers has put sellers in the driver's seat.

Buyers are definitely still looking in the neighborhood. Carolina Place is one of my favorite neighborhoods to recommend, because it has such historic charm and great neighborhood feel.
