Outer Banks (OBX) Real Estate for Investment or Retirement (Part 3)

Owning a rental property, second home or even retiring in North Carolina’s Outer Banks is a dream many have, but it does take knowledge and planning to make it a reality.

If you have vacationed here and come under the spell of OBX magic, you may think you know it pretty well.  But, you may not know it as well as you think.  Barb Connery of REMAX Ocean Realty takes us on the insider’s tour of the real Outer Banks…the one you will need to know about to be a successful investor.   We go beyond the spectacular coastal beauty of this “addicting” vacationland and into the hard core insights that will assist you in making a set of smart moves, should you be considering buying property in the OBX.


We don’t cover everything, but we’ll give you a heck of a good foundation and you will have contacts you have some familiarity with should you be making plans and want more information.

If you have ever dreamed of investing in your own little piece of Outer Banks magic, this series of shows is just for you!

What is your most important foundational consideration?  What are the current entry level price points?  How have foreclosure and short sale properties impacted the OBX market?  What should you know about owning vacation property so that you avoid unpleasant surprises after your investment?  What kinds of time frames are realistic for most investors?

We exam these and other important considerations for anyone thinking about owning property in the Outer Banks.

Stay updated on investment and retirement insights through our new blog feature, “Outer Banks Focus.” We invite you to listen and get subscribed to Real Estate in Chantilly so you don’t miss a single information packed show.
