Good spot for moving to OBX questions?




Hey everyone, our family is considering moving to the outer banks and we were hoping to find a space we could ask questions about living in the outer banks (many of which I am sure long time residents will laugh at smiley. Is there a thread or space you would recommend for these questions?

RE: Good spot for moving to OBX questions?




Welcome! This is the right spot. There have been MANY questions over time about various aspects of making a move to OBX so if you have specific questions you might want to start with a search of the forum to see if any recent threads are helpful.


RE: Good spot for moving to OBX questions?




A good place would be the owners forum, but ............ you are not yet.

The folks that mostly hang here rent homes on the OBX, but there are some that own and could answer your questions if you ask. There is no place I know of that meets what you are seeking. You could email .




RE: Good spot for moving to OBX questions?




I would just ask away. There are a lot of year rounders that would respond. I live here full time - feel free to PM me if you'd prefer.


RE: Good spot for moving to OBX questions?




Start with the “search” function. It’s a bit crude but does the job. Questions about relocating to the OBX, as well as a standard set of other topics, get asked a hundred times over. Tons of information to keep you occupied for hours. If you still have questions after that, post away!


RE: Good spot for moving to OBX questions?




I'm a local Kitty Hawk Resident and always ready to give advice/opinions. However, there is so much to say. In addition there are quite a few Vacationers and Rental Property owners on here whose advice might not be as solid or detailed as a longtime full time resident. I would guess that over half of the OBX Connection members are not Residents and have fractional/seasonal info. So many questions that I would ask if I were you. Tim on here is a Real Estate Agent and is always ready to answer questions with factual and detailed answers. So ask some questions and lets see where it goes.

I am a year round native of Hatteras village ask away smiley.

First you need to decide where on the obx you are interested in. Then fire a way with your questions and I'm sure you'll get valuable info. We in Manteo and live it.

Quite a few of the original and early posters moved to the Outer Banks starting about 14 years ago. Susi and I live between the highways in Nags Head. We love it here but it has not been without its challenges. I am not retired but have a business that allows me time flexibility.

Check out Southern Shores. The houses are spaced far enough apart so that you have a lot of privacy between houses.

This ^^^. Living in Frisco or Buxton is quite different from living in Duck or Corolla, and all are very different from living in Manteo. Deciding where to live on the OBX depends on what you're looking for. If you don't know areas well enough to choose your village (or, at least, your island), then I'd recommend some extended rental time to get to know what each village offers. Good luck.
