So what is going on with Waterfront Sales?

First the good news. Average sales price is up a little over .5%. Not much, however it is heading in the right direction for the first time in years. The above $500,000 price range is still tough. Just not as many buyers in that price range and plenty of inventory, 30 to be exact. If you are selling in that price range you will need to be patient.

The old adage that time heals all wounds will ultimately prove true with waterfront home sales. Unless we have another meltdown in the economy  waterfront home sales should continue to improve. The rate of improvement for high end waterfront will be very slow. Seems like waterfront buyers have downsized their price points. That said, Eastern NC is really starting to become a destination for retirees, and they ain't making anymore waterfront.
