Number of homes sold in Brunswick County skyrockets in April

SHALLOTTE, NC (WWAY) — Brunswick County’s residential real estate market continued its hot streak in April, with substantial jumps in both units sold and new listings compared to last year. That’s according to the Brunswick County Association of Realtors.

More than half of homes sold were at or above their listing price, and the average number of days on the market hit an all-time low of just 50 days.

“Our market’s amazing hot streak continued in April,” said BCAR CEO Cynthia Walsh. “Prices are up, homes are selling at a record pace, and sellers are receiving nearly all of their asking price. I see absolutely no signs of a cooldown as we move into summer.”
