Rapid-fire Real Estate in April. Majority of homes in Brunswick County sell in 5 days or less.



Thanks to tight inventory and strong demand, homes sold in rapid-fire fashion in Brunswick County during April. A majority of homes sold spent less than five days on the market last month, and homes spent an average of 25 days on the market.

“Thanks to strong demand and a limited inventory of available homes, Brunswick County once again saw a strong seller’s market in April,” said BCAR CEO Cynthia Walsh. “Homes sold in rapid-fire fashion last month, with a majority spending five days or less on the market. Additionally, a number of homes sold for more than list price, likely a result of sellers receiving multiple offers. The combination of strong demand and limited inventory once again drove prices upward. Our market remains intensely competitive, and serious buyers would benefit from working with a professional REALTOR®.”
