These two words sum up real estate in the Outer Banks as we head into the busy spring selling season. Because we were looking at a bleak future in March 2020 due to COVID and the shutdown, we knew that the statistics for last month would be drastically different from the year before. And they were!

Under Contract homes jumped 100% with 441 more homes under contract for a total of 883. As of today there are a total of 928 homes under contract.
