Do you find yourself asking, is the timing right to put my house in Kill Devil Hills on the market right here in the middle of winter? The answer is simple, yes. Unlike other areas, where home sales peak and fall with the ebb and flow of the school system, home sales in Kill Devil Hills are not restricted by families looking to relocate. Often, busy professionals find it more convenient to shop for an investment property during the winter when traffic and vacationers do not get in the way. Winter shopping for homes is restricted by the weather back home which sometimes keeps the buyers trapped up north.The first graph below shows the number of homes sold in each month in Kill Devil Hills on the Oceanside of Rt12 from July 2014 thru July 2015. The houses in this location are primarily in...

The annual flyover celebrating the anniversary of the first time powered flight was achieved will be on Thursday, Dec17, 2015 at the Wright Brothers National Memorial in Kill Devil Hills. On this day back in 1903, the Wright brothers, Wilbur & Orville, made history in their airplane. To pay tribute to this achievement, the National Park Service will hold a formal ceremony starting at 9am and there are activities throughout the day. The real fun starts at 10:35am when the military flys in. What they will be flying is always a surprise but if you like watching military planes fly low and slow, this will be the place to be. They make a pass directly over top of the memorial and into the wind with a line on the runway, so find a seat accordingly.

One of the best things about living on the Outer Banks is enjoying the beach in the off-season.  Walking on the beach after work, is always a great way to unwind.  Here's a quick picture from Monday's walk.

Outer Banks Restaurants for Great Seafood Of course tourists and frequent visitors go to Outer Banks restaurants for great seafood. Great seafood, after all, is expected here. So where do the locals go when they want the best?   Don't tell anyone. Unfortunately, I think the secret is out though. Here it is. Awful Arthur's Oyster Bar, one of the best Outer Banks restaurants for great seafood. It's in Kill Devil Hills on the beach road and milepost 6 across from Avalon Pier.   Can't say that I like oysters (slimy little rascals), but you just gotta try their spiced shrimp - perfect with the house salad. If you like clams or snow crab legs, they are steamed right before your eyes if you sit at the bar. There are also tables but often there is a line waiting for seating. Don't let that stop...
