Rental Performance: Choose rental performance and your results will return with the highest returning properties showing first and with a big red rental performance percentage right on every listing. This is stored as part of the Outer Banks MLS for properties in a vacation rental program.

Water Location: Choose water location and the search will return the properties closest to the ocean showing first. This function will still show you all the properties with active listings on the Outer Banks MLS that fit your search criteria, but the order they appear will be changed.

The Right Search Criteria

Click ‘More Options’ to show the advanced fields. We studied all the information available within the outer banks mls to find the specific fields uniquely interesting to buyers in our region.

Oceanfront Location: Many of our buyers are looking specifically for oceanfront property or property between the highways. Now you can search by ocean location. Just choose the water location and your search results will be narrowed to those locations and sorted by how close they are to the ocean.

Income Property: Our search tool allows you to search properties that are already in a rental program or it will exclude vacation rental properties if you like. If you choose to search for homes in a rental program, the results will be grouped by rental performance with the highest performing properties displayed first.

Use this search field to show beach properties within flood Zone X (where flood insurance is typically not required by lenders). The flood zone is a required piece of data within the Outer Banks MLS so this is a great filtering opportunity.
