The race begins at 8:30 and snakes through the streets adjacent to the Wright Brothers Memorial in the beautiful Outer Banks.

(Hatteras Island, N.C.) Buyers today are primarily looking for location, condition, and price in the properties that they purchase. Since the location is fixed, and rental homes are usually in good condition, the variable over which a seller has the most control when listing their home for sale is the asking price. Traditionally, the best measures of a home's value are the price at which comparable properties have been sold and those that are under contract. We also study the prices at which similar properties are presently being offered for sale to get some feel for the competition. Despite the market indicators that lead us to a determination of the probable sale price for the home that is being evaluated, some homeowners choose to "overprice" their properties.

(Rodanthe, N.C.) Last August, when Hurricane Irene sliced across the Outer Banks, it cut Highway 12, Hatteras Island’s lifeline, in two places. Engineers rushed to repair the damage, filling and repaving a washed-out stretch of roadway here and building a bridge over a newly formed inlet a few miles to the north. The road reopened on Oct. 11, to the cheers of anglers, would-be vacationers and the innkeepers, restaurateurs and merchants whose livelihoods had taken a huge blow. But the winds and waves that shape the coast were already gnawing at the new bridge. By January, engineers were reinforcing its southern approach with sandbags and rock trucked in from the mainland, in hopes of keeping the road open until a more permanent fix could be designed and built. >> Read More
