Home sales in Brunswick County recently hit the $1 billion mark, according to statistics released Monday.
"Although Brunswick County saw record numbers in 2020, total year-to-date sales reached $1 billion in June of this year, which is two months sooner than last year’s record of August," stated a report from the Brunswick County Association of Realtors.
The inventory of available homes is at an all-time low, according to the report, and the average days on the market (DOM) is at about 30 days.
BCAR CEO Cynthia Walsh said in the report, “Each month I think I can’t be surprised again, and then I look at the numbers. Homes are selling, and they’re selling fast. Brunswick County’s market is as hot as our weather, and I see no signs of it cooling down in the near future.”
