Welcome to my Blog. My name is Jean-Paul Peron. I'm a REALTOR® with The Outer Banks Real Estate Company. My wife and I built our dream home and moved to Carova, a 10 mile stretch of non comercialized beach with no paved roads and home to the Corolla Wild Horses. Carova is an nincorporated community in Cuttituck County in the extreme northeast corner of North Carolina. Its three main neighborhoods of Swan Beach, North Swan Beach, and Carova Beach can only be accessed by four-wheel drive, boat, or (if you want to splurge) by helicopter since there are no paved roads connecting Carova to neighboring Corolla of Virginia. There is actually a fence at the state line to keep the vehicles from crossing into Virginia. Living this far from civilization and this close to the ocean is a blessing that sometimes comes with a price. I will try my best to be share both sides of the coin. J-P

This is another question I am hearing more and more as it appears that the Mid-Currituck Bridge is actually going to become a reality.  Again, my "crystal ball" is far from perfect, but it will be interesting to look at these posts years from now and see just how accurate I was.  As I said in Pa...

  I often get asked to predict when the market will rebound and more precisely "When will my property be worth what I paid for it?"  First let me just point out to you that my “crystal ball” is seldom 100% accurate, but I assure you that given enough time property values will can recover.   What...

  It's moments like this that make driving the beach, even after it has been destroyed by the people with too much air in their tires, worth while.  You can't get views like this driving down Route 12 North. When it comes to living on the Outer Banks, Carova is the place to be.
