March home sales in Brunswick County saw a significant jump over those in February, according to an announcement
Monday from the Brunswick County Association of Realtors.
The number of units sold jumped 87%, and total sales volume increased 74% compared to totals for the previous month.
“Real estate sales in Brunswick County skyrocketed in March compared to February,” BCAR CEO Cynthia Walsh said in a news release. “Spring fever is setting in, with more people listing homes and those homes selling quickly. If our recent days-on-market stats continue to hold true, homes being listed now will sell in less than 100 days. All signs point to a continued strong market as summer approaches.”
Despite the increase over the previous month, Brunswick County’s March numbers dropped a bit from those of the same month in 2018.
“The number of new listings decreased slightly in March 2019 compared to last year, dropping from 704 to 673, a 4.4% decrease," BCAR's release stated. "The number of units sold also dipped slightly from 450 in March 2018 to 437 last month, a 2.9% decrease. The average sale price decreased from $283,911 to $280,933, while total sales volume dropped 3.9%, from $127.76 million to $122.77 million."
