The purpose of OBXWhere application (app) is to allow for anyone to search for properties for sale on and near the Outer Banks of NC. OBXWhere is a web app that runs in almost any web browser. Formatted for a smartphone, it also runs on computers. So, you do not need to download anything from an app store to start using it. You can bookmark it and/or save to your mobile device's home screen to quickly access it.
OBXWhere is used by many agents, belonging to Outer Banks of Association Realtors® (OBAR), to provide easy access to information on properties for sale. It is free for anyone to use to look up property for sale and to contact the agent. There is also an evolving "Area Info" section where you can find information about areas as well as events.
When using the "Find Outer Banks Properties Near Me" button (Get there from the "Search" button), you do not need to select any other choices, just click the search button immediately below it. Remember, it only works when you are in Currituck or Dare counties. If you are not on the Outer Banks or you have a week GPS signal, scroll down the "Search" screen and you will see where you can search by area and other criteria.
Your results can be displayed in either a list or on a map. If you are in a list view, you can sort the list of found properties with the "Sort" drop down menu above the list, for example, to find the rental homes with the best rental performance.
Maps will show green circles where listings are located. They have white letters on them;
H = House
L = Lot/Land
C = Commercial/Industrial
When you tap a disc, you get a pop up with a brief data set. You can have as many pop ups showing as you need for reference. Tapping on the black arrow or "view more details" takes you to the Listing Detail Page for that listing.
If you want to save favorite listings and make notes on them, tap on the agent's name in the upper left of any page to return to the front page. Here you can create an account so we can remember the properties you save for next time. Your notes cannot be saved between uses without having an account.
