Holden Beach, NC January Real Estate Market
I spent a lot of time in January on Holden Beach with buyers looking for their next purchase. With preparing to see their potential properties and seeing how fast several of the homes went under contract, I decided to dive a little deeper into the Holden Beach market and I think you'll find these stats interesting, I sure did!
As of January 31, there are currently 13 homes under contract/pending on Holden Beach, 8 of these homes were on the market for one month or less!
Of the 13 currently pending, 5 of the homes were on the market for one week or less! 38% OF THEM UNDER CONTRACT WITHIN 7 DAYS!
The average list price of these 13 homes under contract is $1,107,077.
As you can see from the statistics above, the homes that are priced well are moving fast! Buyers have to be ready to act fast when they see a home they love here.
Inventory is low - if you have been thinking about selling your Holden Beach home, now may be the right time. Let's chat and see what your home is worth!
