April’s activity in the local luxury market mirrored that of March as the supply of million dollar plus homes continues to exceed demand.

New Hanover and Brunswick Counties saw a decline in the combined number of closed sales, from ten in April 2015 to six in 2016.  Total volume was down from $17.4 million to $7.15 million.  April marks the second month in a row with total sales volume of high-end homes down more than $10 million compared to the same month last year.

There were no luxury home sales in Pender County during April this year or last year.

There are currently 259 homes on the market with asking prices at or above $1 million in New Hanover, Brunswick and Pender counties.  At the current rate of sales, there is a 3.6 year supply of luxury properties available.  That’s good news for high end buyers who continue to have plenty of choices and a definite advantage at the negotiating table.
