Competition remains in the Brunswick County real estate market

Updated: Aug 28, 2023

Homes still selling for more than list price

Brunswick County’s residential real estate market saw a slight increase in new listings in February, while the average sales price decreased for the first time in over a year. While there were fewer sales, a number of homes sold for more than list price.

“Our market is still inching toward normal pace, we’re not quite there yet,” said Cynthia Walsh, BCAR CEO. “While average sale prices were down slightly in February, they’re still substantially higher than they were a couple of years ago. The bottom line is that our market is still highly competitive, with homes continuing to sell for more than the original list price.”

Brunswick County saw $141,490,000 in total sales volume in February, a 19.2% decrease from last year’s $175,080,000. The average sales price decreased 4.2%, from $457,130 to $437,933. New listings were up 12.8%, from 438 to 494. The number of units sold decreased 17.8%, from 383 to 315. Homes spent an average of 60 days on the market, and sellers received 95% of the original list price on average. There were 36 sales over original list price in February. Brunswick County’s luxury market remained strong, with 12 sales in excess of $1 million and two sales over $2 million on Bald Head Island.

Year-to-date sales volume through February totaled $263,300,000, down 21.9% from last year’s $336,980,000. Average sales price for the year is down 1.2% over 2022, decreasing from $437,742 to $432,672.
