June 2020 – Outer Banks Market Update

“We are actively seeking new properties to list and reaching out to clients who might consider selling. This market is very different than anything we have seen, demand is through the roof.” — Matt Myatt

We will be posting these market stats as they become available (around the first week of the month) along with any other market information we find helpful.
