Built with outdoor living in mind, you'll enjoy the covered wrap around decks, the screened in porch, and the rear sun deck.  Underneath the house, there's a large one car garage with tons of storage, a carport tall enough to accomodate your boat, and an extra concrete area to enjoy cookouts.

Only used as a second home, this Hatteras Island home for sale is truly better than a new construction Outer Banks home as the sellers have added so many extras - such as hurricane shutters, a fully floored attic that could easily be converted into a wonderful game room, custom closets, and much more. 

Inside, you'll find a gourmet chef's kitchen, with beautiful granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances.  The island is perfect for preparing your meals, and provides additional seating at the bar.  The dining area enjoys panoramic ocean views, and the living room boasts a soaring, beamed  cathedral ceiling.  Wood-patterned ceramic tile completes the look.

Outer Banks Real Estate Agents Should Be Present For Every Inspection

Showing property is the easy part of an Outer Banks real estate agents job; the heavy lifting doesn’t begin until the offer on an Outer Banks home for sale is accepted.  Once we are under contract, the real work begins.  I order every inspection on the property, which typically includes an Obx home inspection, a septic inspection and a pest inspection.  Once the home inspection is completed, I may then need to have other inspections performed, which may include a fireplace inspection, an elevator inspection, an hvac inspection, and a pool/hot tub inspection.  Depending on the results of the home inspection, a licensed Outer Banks builder may be needed to quote repair costs for electrical, plumbing, and roofing.  A new survey must also be ordered.

During the time we are under contract, I am at the property at least a half dozen times, to meet every inspector and to watch as the inspections take place.  I want to be present because more often than not, my Outer Banks buyers cannot be, as they live out of state and their schedules will not permit another trip down. During the inspections, as issues arise, I am on site and can ask questions to gain more clarity about the situation.  Because I’m present, I can ask the inspector’s advice on how best to proceed with the next step if there's an unusual situation.  And I almost always learn something new during each transaction.

Viewing the property multiple times also allows me to notice things about the neighborhood that my buyers and I may not have noticed while showing the home.  As an example, if there are any dogs that bark incessantly, or loose dogs running through the neighborhood, I may run across them.  My frequent trips to the property allow me to see which neighbors are home during the day, and which are not.  All of these things I then report back to my buyers.

It’s pretty rare to find an Obx real estate agent who is willing to go to these lengths for their clients.  Most don’t want to take the time, as it’s not a ‘money-making’ activity.  But as I see it, it’s my job to be my buyer’s eyes and ears.

So when you’re searching for the right Outer Banks real estate agent, be sure to find one who is willing to be present at EVERY inspection.  I am.

Holleay Parcker Awarded 2014 Best of Trulia Top Agent Award

Holleay Parcker Awarded 2014 Best of Trulia Top Agent Award

On January 29, 2015 I received the 2014 Best of Trulia TOP AGENT Award. Trulia began recognizing the most successful agents using Trulia last year. This recognition will now become an annual event. 

The factors Trulia used in its calculations were a combination of the number of reviews from past clients; the highest rankings those past clients gave their agents; and the number of buyer and seller side transactions that were completed in 2014 and added to the agent’s profile.

Less than 2% of all agents using Trulia across the nation qualified for this award.

I am honored to be recognized with the 2014 Best of Trulia Top Agent Award.

But real estate is much more than awards and recognition.  My career is really about helping people achieve their Outer Banks real estate dreams.  My job is to assist buyers and sellers with moving forward in their lives – sometimes the next step forward is purchasing an Outer Banks home, and sometimes the next step is to sell the home they have treasured for many years.

Whether beginning a dream or ending one, it is my privilege to meet so many wonderful clients and to walk beside them as they complete their transaction.  At the end of the day, the positive reviews I receive mean far more to me than any award.

So while I appreciate being honored by Trulia, my greatest accomplishments are the reviews from my satisfied clients, because I am fortunate to have the BEST. CLIENTS.  EVER.    


Why Now is an Excellent Time to Buy Outer Banks Real Estate

Why Now is an Excellent Time to Buy Outer Banks Real Estate

Perhaps you’ve heard the saying: “A rising tide lifts all boats.” The opposite of that statement is also true, as we have all seen since 2005 with falling market values. But many buyers and sellers don’t realize that whether the market is rising or falling, the tide isn’t lifting or lowering all boats equally.  And this provides you with an excellent opportunity, if you're considering purchasing Outer Banks real estate.

Near the market peak in late 2005 and early 2006, buyers of Outer Banks investment properties found themselves pushed further and further from the ocean, due to high market values. Many buyers were purchasing homes nearly a quarter mile from the beach, because these were the only homes that were within their budget.  

With the fall in values that our market has experienced during the last 8 years, buyers’ purchasing power has significantly increased. Many are finding that homes that are just a few lots off the ocean are now within their reach.

Property values have fallen most for Outer Banks oceanfront homes. (Think ‘the bigger they are, the harder they fall’) and then semi-oceanfront, two off the ocean, and so on. When the market begins to appreciate once more, the ‘tide’ of rising market values will raise oceanfront homes and those closest to the ocean higher than those that sit many lots away from the beach.

In other words, there hasn’t been a better opportunity for buyers to purchase this close to the ocean in many, many years. By purchasing now, you are poised for your Obx investment property or second home to enjoy the rising tide of price appreciation in the future. 

In the meantime, there is an additional benefit for you to enjoy: higher rental income. Outer Banks homes that sit closest to the ocean not only rent for more money, due to their proximity to the beach; they also rent first.  So, your income stream begins sooner in the year than for those property owners whose homes sit many lots further back. 

And so the conversation today about rising and falling tides is just another way of illustrating that lot location is the single most critical factor in your purchase.
