Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean and the Currituck Sound, Duck is a small town that stretches north from Southern Shores to the Dare County/Currituck County line, a distance of only 7 miles. Along that stretch are miles of wide, clean Atlantic beaches, thousands of vacation homes, numerous shopping and dining areas and plenty of recreational opportunities. It’s a very appealing place, so it’s easy to see why Duck real estate is popular. Within the context of the entire Outer Banks real estate scene, Duck’s trends are on the upturn. Perhaps that’s due to the strong Duck vacation rental market; with only one bed and breakfast inn and one resort, the vast majority of visitors to this area must rent a home for their vacation, creating an appealing market return for those who have bought Duck, NC, real estate as an investment.
It’s just as feasible that the popularity of Duck’s real estate has to do with the variety and quality of properties on the market. A quick scan of the Outer Banks real estate’s Multiple Listing Service will show you properties that range from $3 million oceanfront estates to much less pricey condominiums. In between, there are brand-new homes along the sound or in new developments and older but still very nice houses in neighborhoods established more than 25 years ago. Overall, the Duck real estate market offers sufficient choices that if you want to find the perfect Outer Banks vacation home or your dream home to live here year round, you will.
Southern Shores real estate set the standard many years ago for environmentally friendly development. Here, you can choose from the classic flat top (if you’re lucky enough to be looking when one of these jewels comes on the market) to an oceanfront mega-house to one of the many lovely homes that line the meandering, tree-lined streets.
