Parade of Homes 2011

For 19 years the Outer Banks Parade of Homes has been a showcase for everything that is best about owning a home on the Outer Banks–true craftsmanship in construction, innovative design and beautiful settings. For the second year in a row, Resort Realty will be teaming up with SAGA Construction to show the outstanding features of a SAGA built home and talk about the advantages of property ownership on the Outer Banks.

“We are pleased to partner with SAGA construction in representing their fine homes to our Parade of Home attendees,” Chris Toolan, Business Development Director for Resort Realty, says. “These superior investment homes and our experienced and dedicated real estate brokers will provide an elevated experience to those who attend the event.”

Brokers for Resort Realty will be showing two oceanfront homes this year–one in Corollaon Lighthouse Drive in Whalehead and the other in South Nags Head on Old Inlet Road.

With their reputation for reasonable pricing, quality construction and a wide variety of floor plans available for homeowners, SAGA is a natural fit to partner with Resort Realty. “It’s a mutually beneficial arrangement,” Julie Short, Realtor/Broker for SAGA, says. “Working with the experienced brokers (from Resort Realty) will help our clients visiualize what their home will look like.”

With lot prices at very affordable prices and mortgages rates at historic lows, there may never be a better time to get into the Outer Banks housing market. Or course, an Outer Banks property is not just an investment–although that rental income is important. We understand that for most of the people we talk to, that house is a home; a place that will be filled with memories of family and friends and may someday be the primary residence for your family.

Because so many of the properties people are buying today will be the family homes of the future, the quality of the construction and understanding the market is more important than every. Resort Realty, with our proven record of property management success seems a natural fit for a partnership with the premier builder on the Outer Banks.

“We are very excited about this year’s Parade of Homes and our involvement with theOuter Banks Home Builders Association and SAGA Construction,” Michael Harrington, CEO of Resort Realty of the Outer Banks, says. “SAGA has consistently supported and won several divisions in the past, and our Brokers are proud to be affiliated with such fine entries that feature the best of the best in home construction on the Outer Banks.”

Tickets can be purchased at Resort Realty offices for $10 (proceeds support the Outer Banks Food pantry.)
