Residential Real Estate Sales and Foreclosures

The chart immediately below shows sales at Stockbridge, the most successful single-family development since the financial crisis, with 99 new home sales, 5 resales and 1 forclosure through Q1 2016. Prices range from $171,900 to $227,900.

All charts are interactive. Mouse-over to see the exact numbers for any given month.

Source: Pasquotank County Register of Deeds

How this data was compiled:
  • Includes all "deed" transactions and Notices of Foreclosure from the Pasquotank County Register of Deeds, sorted by date and counted
  • Extrapolates aggregate sales price from monthly transaction-tax revenues reported by Pasquotank County and divides by the number of transactions.
This methodology doesn't distinguish between arms-length and family/inheritance-related transactions, so the number of transactions is slightly overstated and the average transaction price slightly skewed to the low side. But this is probably as good as it gets for data in a community of our size.
