Stan White Realty offers a myriad of services to help you understand the value of your home. You can be assured that your Outer Banks real estate agent has the skills and the tools necessary to get you the best possible offers. Services like Comparative Market Analysis and Rental Income Projection will help to ensure that you get the most for your property. With a Comparative Market Analysis, our agents will determine the market value of your obx home based on recent transactions of similar Outer Banks listings in the same community, while Rental Income Projection will then estimate the potential earnings based on weekly rental rates of comparable rental homes in the same community. Potential buyers will be able to see the profitability of their purchase, giving them an added incentive to make an offer on your property.

Just as important as equipping you with the information needed to sell, is making sure that your property is fully marketed to Outer Banks buyers. At Stan White Realty, we utilize digital marketing techniques as well as print media so that you can have confidence in knowing that your property is being seen by as many potential buyers as possible. With a detailed listing on our Website,, as well as email campaigns to buyers agents, your property will be easily viewed over the internet for both out of town buyers and local residents. And with a listing on Outer Banks Association of Realtors MLS, Direct Mail campaigns, quality signage and flyers, and of course a fully staged Open House your property will be given every advantage with the anticipation of multiple offers and a quick sell.

Making a Seller's life even easier, our real estate agents coordinate with every office needed to make your experience a seamless one. From contacting other agents, to setting up inspections and appraisals, our office will handle all of the details. Once the ball is rolling, we will coordinate with lenders, attorneys, warranty providers, and insurance companies so that you don't have to.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I do not currently live on the Outer Banks? Will selling be more difficult?

Although a valid concern, we have a wealth of experience in working with out-of-town homeowners. With your real estate agent, you can decide on a preferred method of communication so that you can be as involved in the process as if you were here and provided timely updates with all things concerning your property.

Do I need a pre-appraisal and/or pre-inspection before listing my house for sale?

Though it is not a requirement, there are lucrative benefits to having your home appraised and inspected prior to putting it on the market. You and your obx real estate agent may learn valuable information about your home that is not apparent without a pre-appraisal. Having this extra knowledge will assist in establishing the value of your home as well as the best marketing strategies to use, thus avoiding any potential pitfalls in the selling process.

Do I need a Home Warranty to sell my house?

While it is not necessary, a home protection plan can give potential buyers added confidence in purchasing your home. On average, listings with protection plans sell 60% faster according to the National Home Warranty Association.

What if my home is currently in a rental program?

Outer Banks vacation rental companies are very much accustomed to working with both buyers and sellers agents from other companies. Since both parties have your best interest in mind, working together to ensure flexibility and cooperation amongst all parties is a top priority. A simple Property Disclosure form provided to the rental company allows our Sellers agent to obtain the necessary information to market and sell your home while still taking part in the rental program.
