Since Duck NC is located within Dare County, you can utilize the county's website to obtain this public information. Usually, it can be located on the Dare County website under tax information. Here is the current link:

You can then search by buyer, seller, deed book/page, or parcel #. This will give you the land transfer tax amount which was paid when the deed is recorded. By using the following formula, you can determine the amount that the house sold for.

Land Transfer Tax Amt. x 1000 = Amt. House Sold For

I specialize in courthouse research for current and upcoming bank foreclosures. While it maybe a challenge finding a home in Duck under $300k - in the MLS - it maybe possible finding a deal at the courthouse. I often find properties of interest for clients and then assist them in the process of bidding and buying at the courthouse - usually at a more favorable price and always before it hits the open market (on MLS). In performing this service, the buyer and I would engage in a Buyer's Agency relationship and I would search the court records and trustee resources twice a week for a home that meets your Duck real estate criteria. Email me if you would like more information - and feel free to visit my website www.rickobx.xom ... more

You will never find prices any better than they are now. With the short sales and foreclosures of 2nd home and investment properties in this area - they are setting the prices. We are located in Duck in the Waterfront Shops and are seeing a lot of traffic and houses beginning to move. Don' t wait until it is too late.
Call us for a list of available properties.
