Outer Banks (OBX) Real Estate for Investment or Retirement (Part 1)

Investing in the Outer Banks (OBX) of North Carolina is a dream that many have made into a reality.

In this new regular feature of Real Estate in Chantilly we launch our first episode in a series on how to start thinking about and planning for investment and/or retirement in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We interview our strategic partner in the OBX, Barb Connery of REMAX Ocean Realty.  Barb has been helping investors and others achieve their OBX real estate goals for over two decades.  She knows the “ins and out” of OBX property from top to bottom.  In this series she shares what prospective buyers need to know about the actual realities of owning property in this area.


What has the real estate downturn done to property in the Outer Banks?  What are the opportunities?  How much have prices fallen off?  What are the two very different real estate markets in the OBX?

This series of opening shows for “Outer Banks Focus” builds a good foundation for anyone who has considered investing in an OBX property for rental income or retirement, or both.  We cover a set of key issues that investors and future OBX property owners will need to be keenly aware of before they begin their property search.

What is the special charm of this unique stretch of shore line?  Why does it enchant visitors and cause some to act on their dreams?  What does it take to move from dream to reality when it comes to owning a piece of the OBX magic?   Listen and get subscribed to Real Estate in Chantilly so you don’t miss a single episode or blog post on your personal source for OBX information!
