As the Winter season draws to a close, the demand for residential properties at Orchid Island Realty shows no signs of slowing down. The unprecedented interest has resulted in historic sales volume for all product types including our oceanfront condominiums, single family homes and remaining homesites for new build opportunities. Since the start of the year, we have had over 800 inquiries to our real estate office, averaging more than 45 new inquiries every week. We are now accumulating a “waiting list” of potential homebuyers who desire to become Resident Members at Orchid Island.
In 2021, Orchid Island Realty has sold almost $35 million in real estate, representing 25 individual transactions. With a surge of interest in our oceanfront condominiums, 10 residences sold since January 1st with 2 of these sales representing the highest price paid for 3rd and 2nd floor condos in Orchid Island. This represents a rise of 34.7% year over year, and we predict continued escalation due to the current lack of inventory and high demand. This year to date, Orchid Island has sold its listings at an average of 98% of list price. When it comes to selling Orchid Island listings, we bring the buyer to 2 out of every 3 listings; saving our sellers money on commission dollars.
At the beginning of the year there were 10 homesites available for purchase within Orchid Island. Over the past 4 months, all these homesites have gone under contract, leaving no remaining properties available for sale. Orchid Island Realty recently sold 4 of 5 builder lot/home packages without being listed. Currently there is 1 builder package available for those looking to build and customize their new home.
Single-family homes remain in demand at Orchid Island. 20 properties were sold since January 1st, representing $28 million in sales. Homes are selling very close to asking price and our average days on the market has been significantly reduced. There are currently two available estate homes on the market, and we have buyers eagerly awaiting new listings.
“We are speaking to homebuyers every day who are eagerly awaiting their opportunity to purchase at Orchid Island,” says Anne Torline, Orchid Island Realty’s managing broker. “As new properties become available, we make sure our interested clients are the first to know of their availability.”
Orchid Island Realty exclusively sells and represents homes within our cherished community. We understand the value of our private golf and beach club membership and what differentiates our lifestyle from other competing properties. No one knows Orchid Island like our Orchid Island Realty sales team.
Orchid Island works hard to preserve a way of life not only for the natural neighbors who live in the area, but for our resident as well.

This one-of-a-kind private Club community is committed to providing an extraordinary level of service. Golf is unparalleled on the Arnold Palmer-designed 18-hole course, revered as one of the best in the region and a unique Audubon Certified habitat.

Orchid Island is a place of true beauty and natural wonder. Perfectly situated between the Indian River and the Atlantic Ocean, Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club is a hidden mecca for local wildlife. A variety of natural neighbors call this place home and the members here are committed to protecting the area’s natural beauty. From its status as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary to its pristine private shore, the Club recognizes that its animal neighbors, like turtles, white pelicans, and otters, are as much part of the community as the residents themselves.
One reason why Orchid Island has so many animal visitors is because of its location. Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River, it boasts a mile of private beach and it’s not uncommon to see dolphins swimming in the clear greenish-blue water or sandpipers scouring along while strolling the shoreline. Come May through October, many loggerhead turtles call this beach home and lay their eggs as it’s one of the best places in the world for turtle hatchlings.
The Indian River is known as one of the most bio-diverse ecosystems in the world and this natural neighborhood is home to many different species of fish, birds and so much more. From the red mangroves that hug the shoreline to the seagrass beds that lie under the surface, the wildlife here is unmatched. Rare white pelicans and rosette spoonbills are known to call this place home as well as friendly manatees.
And not to be left out, the golf course at Orchid Island is also home to many varieties of wildlife. From playful otters to birds such as the white pelicans and ospreys, members here enjoy the daily sightings of the unique wildlife. The Club has also installed specialty bird boxes throughout the course and many new “members” are born here each year – including screech owls.
Orchid Island works hard to preserve a way of life not only for the natural neighbors who live in the area but for the people who live here as well. Members and residents enjoy the convenience of a golf cart lifestyle. Traveling the community via golf cart makes getting to any of the amenities a fun and enjoyable experience, including the West Indies, styled private Beach Club, which overlooks a private beach just for residents and their families to take pleasure in.
This private community is committed to providing an extraordinary level of service. Golf here is unparalleled, as the Arnold Palmer-designed, 18-hole course is not only revered as one of the best in the region but also considered a picturesque nature walk throughout this unique habitat.
