WILMINGTON, NC –   Seven homes with sales prices in excess of $1 million sold in New Hanover, Brunswick and Pender Counties during the month of October.  The dollar volume totaled $9.07 million.

The numbers were up slightly from September, when six luxury homes totaling $8.5 million sold.

Despite steady numbers, Kathleen Baylies, Just For Buyers Realty’s Broker-in-Charge expresses a little disappointment.  “Last year (2015), October was a surprisingly strong month.  We were hopeful we might see that kind of bump again this October.  Even so, this past month’s numbers are in line with general expectations.”

The most expensive home to sell in October was 2324 Ocean Point Drive in Landfall.  Listed for $2,195,000, it closed on October 5th for $2,000,000.  The 4,266 sq. ft. antebellum style home has four bedrooms, four bathrooms and sits on almost half an acre overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway.  Features include 100 year old heart of pine floors throughout the home and large upper and lower back porches to enjoy the million-dollar water views.

There are currently 234 luxury homes on the market in New Hanover, Brunswick and Pender counties.  At the current rate of sales, there is a 2.8 year supply of luxury properties available, giving high-end buyers plenty of choices and a negotiating edge.
