North Carolina is well-known for having the sixth longest coastline in the United States, which includes New Hanover, Pender and Brunswick County Beaches. The value of real estate in this area is showing a steady increase but solid investments can still be found with the help of experienced and knowledgeable real estate professionals.

Wrightsville Beach:

Wrightsville Beach, near the southern tip of the North Carolina coast is considered a part of the larger metropolitan area of Wilmington. It is one of the most unique beach towns in the state. It has a 5 mile long stretch of beach which is nestled between the Atlantic Ocean, Banks Channel, and the Intracoastal Waterway.

Wrightsville Beach has relatively high number of newly constructed homes and condos for purchase.  From the beaches to the tidal creeks, Wrightsville Beach NC is paradise for those who choose to call it home. Owning property here is relatively inexpensive compared to the higher per square foot costs in areas such as Long Island or South Florida.

Carolina Beach:

Carolina Beach is a slice of coastal Americana. Located on the north end of Pleasure Island between the Cape Fear River and the Atlantic Ocean, and just 30 minutes by boat from the Gulf Stream, Carolina Beach is a magnet for fishing and water sports enthusiasts and includes some of the best surfing on the coast.

The town of Carolina Beach features a wonderful marina, beach cottages, small motels and conveniently located condos. It has everything one could expect from an oceanfront community – events on the boardwalk, quaint shops and restaurants lining the beach which feature locally caught seafood.

Kure Beach:

Kure Beach is a small, family oriented community, named for its founder Hans Kure. Dominated by vacation cottages, mom-and-pop motels and restaurants, this quiet resort area boasts miles of public beaches and in many places, twisted live oaks still grow behind the dunes.
