Bald Head Island Real Estate Trends – August 2020

Categories: Buying a Vacation Home, Real Estate

As we head into late summer, the real estate market on Bald Head Island remains hot, with more homes under contract on the island than remain in active inventory. If you’re contemplating whether now is a good time to list your island property for sale, we’d suggest that now is actually a great time to list, as buyers are seeking second home getaways in higher numbers than we’ve seen in more than a decade. In greatest demand are homes priced under $1 million, but sellers of homesites and higher priced homes are also are benefiting from this market.

In the last 30 days, Intracoastal Realty has contracted or closed 20 homes and homesites, totaling more than $17 million. Year-over-year to date, our sales unit volume on Bald Head Island has grown 21%, while our sales dollar volume has grown 63% (see graphic below).
