Brunswick County sees fewer homes sold, higher prices and quick sales in July



Homes spending less than a month on the market


Brunswick County’s residential real estate market remained competitive in July, with fewer homes sold, fewer new listings, higher prices, an uptick in the absorption rate, and homes continuing to sell quickly and at 99% of list price on average.


“Our market remains highly competitive thanks to strong demand paired with fewer new listings and a historically low inventory of available homes,” said Cynthia Walsh, BCAR CEO. “While we saw fewer homes sold in July compared to last year, we have a healthy number of pending listings, and the absorption rate increased for the first time in months. Buyers would highly benefit from working with one of our professional REALTORS® to navigate this competitive market.”


Brunswick County saw $216,760,000 in total sales volume in July 2022, a 14.3% decrease from last July’s $252,900,000. The average sales price increased 3.9%, from $430,096 to $446,937. New listings were down 14.1%, from 681 to 585. The number of units sold in July dropped 17.5% compared to last year, from 588 to 485, and homes spent an average of 26 days on the market. The absorption rate, which is the amount of time it would take to sell all available inventory, is up to 2 months for the first time since January 2021. Sellers received 99% of their list price in July on average. Brunswick County’s luxury market remained strong in July with 25 sales of $1 million or more, with the highest transaction at $2,550,000.
