You might remember that the Brunswick County Residential Real Estate Market Update in June blew me away.
But July's stats took it to historic levels.
Let's just start with this stat right here...
Brunswick County real estate sales increase 86% in July compared to 2019, highest single-month sales total on record. What!!!!!
Total Sales Volume
● July 2020: $243,350,000 ● July 2019: $130,800,000 ● Increase +86% 🆙
“Last month I had to do a double-take to make sure I was reading the numbers correctly,” said BCAR CEO Cynthia Walsh. “This month I had to do a triple-take. While we can expect to see some impact from Hurricane Isaias in next month’s numbers, overall our market continues to be on fire.”
