In with the NEW!  That's what a new year promises....A fresh start, new goals and dreams for good things to come.  For the Hawkins family, we are thankful for an awesome 2023.   Grateful for good health, our new graduate of Liberty University who will be getting married in May, our youngest son who is working diligently to finish his Junior year at ECU with goals on traveling as much as possible. Of course, we are super happy that our 11 year old lab "Wally" is doing well and was perky enough to play and enjoy the holidays with the boys. 

All the hustle and bustle of the holidays has passed and we are back to focusing on our business, clients and learning all we can to best serve our real estate peeps in 2024.  

All signs point to lower interest rates as we move towards Spring. The speculation is that will lead to additional homes entering the market and allow some of our buyers that have been on the hunt an opportunity to scoop up their new beach house.  For anyone considering a sale, inventory is still rather low and thus positioning is still strong to achieve a favorable sales price. 

Since every buyer and seller has a unique goal and set of circumstances, there are no one size fits all answers to " Should I Buy or sell right now?"  We love to consult with everyone individually and be sure that we are providing the proper guidance based on the information you provide.

One thing is for values on the Outer Banks have continued to climb and we continue to be a destination for folks from all over the world for vacations, weddings, fishing, bird watching , historical exploration and more! The Outer Banks , Dare and Currituck County offer so much to such a diverse range of people.
