Your one-stop site for everything Outer Banks. OBX Advisor currently provides helpful information on almost 1,800 locations and area businesses. Everything from Outer Banks attractions, activities, beaches, dining and more. We offer information on area regulations and services, from leash laws, to tow trucks as well. Further we are developing content for locals and those looking to relocate to the Outer Banks, having recently added businesses that provide repair and conveniences to homeowners and residents. OBXadvisor is mobile friendly for your convenience. In fact, a number of our provided standard links are best suited to mobile. For instance rather than showing Google Maps on our site, we have linked to Google Maps, meaning the link in a mobile environment will open in the Google Map App. This link will then provide driving directions for your convenience.
Created and maintained by Outer Banks locals. Our philosophy is to bring you the critical information you need to choose a particular location. Each of our listings is researched and frequently updated in order to maintain accuracy. Our standard business listings provide a phone number, address and website link, at minimum. But we are more than a phone book, we research review sites to provide you with better information and provide Google map links as well.
We feel that review sites provide excellent insights into a business. Not every review is valid. Some people have an axe to grind. Consider the overall tone of the reviews. Generally speaking, review sites present a decent snapshot of a business. TripAdvisor and Yelp provide the review site backbone for the majority of our business listings. However, some business industries just are not addressed by them. We use The Knot and WeddingWire for some industries, like photographers and caterers. Most recently we have added vendors
available to supply goods and services for your Outer Banks home. We researched these vendors on Angie’s List and HomeAdvisor. Further we have researched Real Estate for you including Sales agents, agencies and all the companies that you will need to close a real estate transaction. For these we used Realtor.com, Trulia and Zillow. And we will be using additional review sites for the different industries we intend to add to our content. We want you to get the most value for your time and money. After all, if you enjoy your time on the Outer Banks, you may decide to return.
In addition to review site links we provide a link to Google Maps as well for each location. We decided to link to Google maps rather than including a map. This makes the site more functional for you in a mobile environment so that you can get directions from your location.
Thank you for visiting and we hope you find OBXadvisor useful.
