Wilmington NC Real Estate

It seems that the nationwide numbers in this week were not so good for the real estate market in May. The tax credit offered by Uncle Sam expired at the end of April and new home sales plummeted nationwide. But, Wilmington NC real estate is still ticking along pretty good. Our numbers for pending sales in May were up over April this year. We still have our fair share of foreclosures and short sales that are weighing heavily on prices, but overall we seem to be better off than most.

If you are a home seller in the Wilmington NC area, please keep in mind that you are competing with all the short sales and foreclosures in the marketplace. Buyers are out there, but they are looking for the best deal possible. And, they have choices. So, they will move on if they don’t get what they want.

And, if you are looking to purchase a home, now is the most perfect time in many years. Interest rates are at an all time low and everything is on sale! Start your search right here at www.cbbaker.com. You can search Wilmington, NC real estate by price, neighborhood, maps and more. We can also send you a detailed list of foreclosures and short sales .

2 Comments | Leave A Comment

Good news for Wilmington NC real estate home buyers today. The Senate has extended the closing deadline for home buyers that signed contracts by the April 30th deadline. The closing date deadline is now Sept 30, 2010 instead of June 30th. That is good news for many home buyers that are having difficulty with loan completion by June 30th. Many lenders are backlogged with the volume of loan applications right now.
