5914 Cedar Landing Road Hewlett’s Creek Gorgeous Southern-style sound front home overlooking Hewlett’s Creek with over 120 feet of water frontage.  Boat slip at community dock located in front of the property for enjoying the coastal lifestyle. $1,085,000 TEE WOODBURY Broker/REALTOR®, GRI 910-617-5561 800-533-1840 [email protected] Course. Allison Bernhart, Broker at Landfall Realty who ranked 45 in New Hanover County with 19 sales totaling $8.6 million, says the home, built in 1990, with more than 6,000sf, is an exquisite house. “The sellers of that property had purchased a prop-erty only about five houses away and razed the house,” she says. “They went from the golf course side to the waterfront.” Trending “It was the best of all worlds if you were a Realtor,” Young says. “My least favorite market was back in 2005 and ’06 when things were running up so quickly. It was really hard to counsel people on how to price a home or what was a fair price to pay for a home, as it was going up, exponentially month to month. So 2014 was one of those years when everything was in perfect harmony. It was much easier to put the pieces of the puzzle together.” Intracoastal’s Keith Beatty, who ranked No. 2 in New Hanover County and No. 3 in Wrightsville Beach with a prolific volume of 229 sales totaling just under $71 million, says, “I felt it was a breakout year when a lot of people who had been sitting on the fence from all over the place came in and got a lot more consumer con-fidence and started to buy. Consequently, the inventory, the listing inventory, is being reduced substantially, and prices have started to rise at a historically average price.” Days on market, the number of days a house remains on the market before selling, decreased everywhere except at Figure Eight Island. County-wide the decrease was 4.6 percent, with Wrightsville posting the highest decrease of 26.5 percent in the amount of time it took to sell a property. “It was a continuation of gaining ground, it continues to creep up in some form or fashion, as a market, as a whole,” says Jessica Edwards, Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Realty Broker, ranked No. 10 in New Hanover County, with 69 sales and a combined list and sold volume of $18 million for the county.
