Welcome to my monthly real estate newsletter
Greetings! I put out this free emailed newsletter once a month to keep people up to date on the local real estate market. My data focuses on the sales and inventory of homes in New Hanover County, with additional numbers on the region our MLS covers.
To see the full review of real estate sales in the region for 2016, click here.


Last month Sales ----------
Home sales last month in New Hanover were up a whopping 19% over March 2016. You would have to go back to 2005 to find a better March for sales. Year to date, home sales are up 9% over last year.

Last month Prices ----------
More evidence that prices have finally started to respond to low inventory and high demand. The average sales price of a sold home was just shy of $296k, up 12% over last year. The $157 per square foot is 15% over last year, and well above last year's average of $142. Year to date, prices and prices per sq ft are up 10% over last year. Volume is up 20%.

Current Inventory ----------
Inventory was up this month vs. last month, but not by a lot, and compared to last year this time it was down 18%.

Distressed properties were up, but the 22 foreclosure or short sales on the market is at just 1% of the market.

The only zip code where inventory rose compared to the average for last year was the 28429 Castle Hayne area. Biggest drops were in Kure Beach down 30%, 28409 down 20%, Carolina Beach down 17%, and 28405 down 17%.

Inventory was down the most in lower price ranges, down 39% under 100k and down 32% in the 100-200k range. The 800-899 range saw a 37% increase, while 500-599 saw a 22% increase.

Sales in the region surged 28% over last year. Average sale prices were up 4%, average sales price per square foot was up 6%. Year to date, sales are up 24%, and prices are up 3 and 4%. Total volume is up 27%.

Lots of options out there for the high dollar buyer. The top priced home in New Hanover County is 7422 Sea Lilly Lane in Inlet Point, priced at $8.2 million. Includes a main house, guest house, pool house, 6 car garage, pier, dock, gazebo, heated pool, tennis court, basketball court, infrared sauna, all on 11 acres on the waterway.
