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. Additionally, over 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.”

Brunswick County saw $228,350,000 in total sales in April 2021, a 72.2% spike over last April’s $132,630,000. The number of units sold jumped 54.7%, from 402 to 622. The average sales price increased 11.3%, from $329,935 to $367,127. 154 homes sold for over the listing price and 190 sold at listing price, which accounts for more than 50% of all April sales. The number of pending listings is up 70% compared to April 2020 including one home in Brunswick county pending for $6.2 million and 43 for over $1 million.
