What’s Motivating Your Move in Oak Island or the Southport NC Area?

Thinking about selling your house in Oak Island or the Southport North Carolina area? As you make your decision, consider what’s pushing you to think about moving around this beautiful area or to leave this area. A recent survey from looked into why people want to sell their homes this year. Here are the top two reasons that we found are motivating home sellers in Brunswick County North Carolina:

Let’s take a closer look and see if the reasons above are motivating you to make a change too.

1. To Make a Profit off of your North Carolina Beach Home

If you’re thinking about selling your North Carolina Beach house, you probably have a lot of questions on your mind. Well, here’s some good news – the latest data shows most sellers get a great return on their investment when they sell in Southport and Oak Island North Carolina. ATTOM, a property data provider, explains:

“. . . home sellers made a $121,000 profit on the typical sale in 2023, generating a 56.5 percent return on investment.”

That’s significant by anyone’s definition of ROI. Here’s one contributing factor of the huge return on real estate investment right now. During the pandemic, home prices skyrocketed, more than ever seen on the record books. There was more buyer demand than homes available for sale in the Brunswick COunty North Carolina, specifically the seaside towns of Oak Island, NC and Southport, NC; that combination pushed prices up to where they are now.

Now, home prices are still rising, just not as fast. That ongoing appreciation is good news for your bottom line. Any profit you make can help offset some of today’s affordability challenges when you buy your next home whether it be in Brunswick County North Carolina or elsewhere.

If you want to know how much your house is worth now and what’s going on with prices in your area, talk to a local real estate agent at Southport Oak Island Realty Group or simply fill this form out and we would be more than happy to meet with you and provide that information to you!

2. For Family Reasons

A trend, not so new to our Coastal North Carolina area is home sellers want or need to be near relatives to have more support nearby or just to see the grand babies more often! Or maybe you’re just eager to spend time together on special occasions like birthdays and holidays.

Selling a house and moving closer to the people who matter the most to you helps keep you connected. If the distance is making you miss out on some big milestones in their lives, it might be time to talk to a local Southport, NC real estate agent at Southport Oak Island Realy Group to find a place close by. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) says:

“A great real estate agent will guide you through the home search with an unbiased eye, helping you meet your buying objectives while staying within your budget.”

If you’re thinking about selling your house, we know there’s probably a good reason for it. Let’s talk so you have help making the right move to reach your goals this year.
