Brunswick County’s residential real estate sales totaled $1.2 billion in 2017, crossing the billion-dollar threshold for the first time since 2005, according to a news release Tuesday from the Brunswick County Association of Realtors.

“Brunswick County’s residential real estate market demonstrated strong, steady growth throughout 2017, with total sales volume exceeding $1 billion for the first time since the recession,” said BCAR CEO Cynthia Walsh in the release. “We are in strong shape heading into 2018, and we anticipate continued strong, steady growth.”
 
With more than 1,000 properties sold, the Leland area remained the county’s biggest selling market in 2017, according to the release, with a sales volume totaling $266 million. Southport followed with slightly more than 500 properties sold and a total sales volume of $154 million, the release said.
