Carteret County Market Update as of May 23, 2024

By: Mary Cheatham King / 23 May 2024

804 Ridge Water Boulevard in Morehead City spent just FOUR days on the market before selling for $15,100 OVER asking price. Plus, our sellers get to stay put in their current home until their new home is ready at the end of June! 

What does this mean for you?

  • If you're a seller: homes with a selling strategy in place are selling quickly and often with multiple offers driving up sale prices. Even if you're not quite ready to move like the sellers of 804 Ridge Water Blvd., we can negotiate a sale ideal for YOU.
  • If you're a buyer: it's important to work with an agent to help your offer stand out above the rest. 
  • If you're a property owner in Carteret County and happy where you are: congratulations! Property values on the Crystal Coast remain strong. 

Local stats show that historically April, May and June have the highest number of real estate closings in Carteret County.  Buyers are eager to settle in by the summer to enjoy the warm weather and local events such as the Atlantic Beach Music Festival and The Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament, draw large audiences, including potential buyers.  

If you're considering a sale, there's still time to take action.
