Outer Banks Real Estate Report:Condominium
Sales Up 33%, Residential Sales Decline 4%;
See July 2014 MLS Statistical Report PDF
Outer Banks Association of Realtors July 2014 MLS Statistical Report Year to Date Summary: "Overall, the year has been relatively uneventful; however, a few things really stand out:
Commercial property
- With sales volume is up 64% and unit sales up 89% one might consider this a sales “boom”; however, while this is an interesting statistic, the MLS does not expect this “boom” to be long term.
Condominium sales
- So far this year, condominium sales have exceeded expectations with unit sales up 33% and sales volume up 45%.
Residential - Unit sales have been lackluster showing a decline of 4%; however, total sales volume is up by 3% and average sale price is up by 7%.
Lots / Land – For the first six months of the year, lot / land sales appeared to be on the decline; however, in July Lot / Land sales rebounded bring the total unit sales and total sales volume up to par with 2013 sales figures.
Active Inventory – Since February, overall inventory has been declining – most likely due to sales and the seasonal decline; however, it is expected that inventory will start to rise again in the next couple of months in anticipation of the fall selling season.
Distressed Sales / Foreclosures – The number of properties entering foreclosures has held steady for the last two months. Sales, when compared with 2013 are down 44%. Not much to talk about here." See

Vote 5 No to Reject Resolution to Turn Away Illegal
Unaccompanied Minors or Adults from Dare County
The resolution was proposed by Dare Commissioner Wally Overman who had warned fellow commissioners of a coming crisis because of the federal government's refusal to control the borders and reported that 1,200 illegal aliens have already been sent to North Carolina.
Full Resolution: "Be it resolved, that the Dare County Board of Commissioners welcomes legal immigration that contributes to the social and economic wellbeing of all our communities and acknowledges that legal immigration has been a cornerstone of our county, state, and nation. Be it further resolved, that the Dare County Board of Commissioners hereby urges the federal government to uphold the laws of the land, cease any practices that would encourage minors or adults fleeing to this country illegally, and for the reasons stated above refrain from housing any illegal unaccompanied minors or adults in Dare County."

Suspect; Dare Community Crimeline

Suspect; Dare Community Crimeline
"Suspicious Person : In the early morning hours (around 2 am) of the fourth during the hurricane, Southern Shores police officers on patrol found a white male approximately 5’09”-6’00” tall medium build wearing a dark rain coat with green, blue and grey shorts and black tennis shoes and white socks creeping around Pelican watch which is just to the north of the Hilton Garden Inn at 5353 N Virginia Dare Trail. When confronted, the male ran off and eluded the officers. During his escape he shed his rain coat as well as a pry bar and several other B&E tools. Officers discovered he was in Wal-Mart just shortly before encountering them. He was driving what looks like a gold in color older Ford Explorer.
