Kirk Pugh, with Real Estate state-of-the-market observations, at the end of the third quarter for 2021:
Let's talk about this crazy housing market some. I'd like to run through some statistics because I'm kind of a numbers nerd. And then we'll talk about something a little less quantifiable, although still supported by some of the numbers that the research analysts at Morgan Stanley have put together.
There's been a little bit of chatter, and there have been some rumblings in some of the mastermind groups that I'm a part of, that the market has slowed some, and the numbers kind of support that. So I'd like to talk about the numbers and then talk about why I think the numbers are what they are.
Let's just look at numbers again. These are through July because Morgan Stanley's research always runs about a month behind.

Odgen is the first suburb north of Wilmington, North Carolina, and a separate census-designated place. Referred to as "The 28411" by locals, Ogden is one of the fastest growing areas in greater Wilmington, as well as in New Hanover County.

Historic Downtown Wilmington is an area designated by both local historic district boundaries and a National Register of Historic Places. It is considered to be the blocks between Castle Street on the south and the Isabel Holmes Bridge on the north, and 8th Street to the Cape Fear River.
Historic Downtown Wilmington flows into surrounding neighborhoods that have seen gentrification and significant property rehabilitation in the past decade, including the Castle Street Arts & Antiques District, Brooklyn Arts District, and Carolina Place. Other areas of Wilmington, like Midtown, Monkey Junction, Ogden, Landfall, and Forest Hills, are less than 20 minutes from downtown with the option of taking any number of routes that include Oleander Drive, Market Street, Wrightsville Avenue, Carolina Beach Road, and MLK Parkway.

Located right across the Cape Fear River and just west of Historic Downtown Wilmington, Leland has the fastest increasing population in southeastern North Carolina. Leland has the feel of all these: a small town, a booming suburb, and a bustling metropolitan area.
Located in Brunswick County, the 2010 census population was 13,527, and annual statistics indicate a fast growth rate, with many new residents finding affordable real estate and easy access to both the beaches and either Wilmington North Carolina or Myrtle Beach South Carolina. Leland is actually part of the Myrtle Beach Metropolitan Statistical Area.
Leland covers 19.9 square miles, the majority of which is land. One of the most rapidly growing towns in southeastern Coastal North Carolina, Leland includes non-contiguous parcels that are forested land and parks. Leland wraps around the tiny town of Belville on its north, west, and south sides ...
