This beautiful coastal and golf area is and always has been an incredible and fun place to vacation and it is also a terrific environment in which to own property. Whether you envision a second home on the Island or at one of the area signature golf courses, the fun factor and the investment potential for you remains strong.
You might be amazed at the rental income one of these homes can generate while you get to vacation here also.
Some of you may have witnessed drops in your own home equity values or may be nervous because you have heard so much, for so long, about soft real estate markets – and you are understandably concerned.
While the market here has slowed it has held up much better than in some areas of the country. What this means is that as the economy improves nationwide the market in this area is apt to rebound much quicker. This could mean a great opportunity for those looking for a great investment.
Knowing the market where you plan to buy and determining the true value of any property under consideration (based on past sales and not necessarily the current asking price) will assure that you make the right decision and make your purchase at the right price.
Selling real estate at Ocean Isle Beach and this entire gorgeous area for the last almost 30 years has just been a wonderful life and I am truly grateful to have ended up here! If you are looking to invest in real estate in this area I would love to sit down with you and share my knowledge and expertise as an Accredited Buyer Representative of the National Association of Realtors with you.
We can discuss the boundaries of the market, locate the best property for you, purchase it at the best price possible, and finally help you put the correct financing in place by relentless comparison shopping!
