Of course, throughout the world, coastal real estate is hands down some of the most expensive. Those with strong ties to the ocean and the driving desire to live within sight of the sea will tell you the high cost is worth it and: “It’s not just a home, it’s a lifestyle”. A quick drive to any one of the area’s beach communities will reveal an impressive number of luxury oceanfront homes. Most were built not as future vacation rentals, but instead, as family compounds with an eye on maximum gratification. In addition to all of the interior extras, many have walls of windows, oceanfront gazebos and widows walks that allow sweeping views of the sea, sounds and inlets. It’s definitely a given that gratification is instant!

In the Cape Fear region, the price of oceanfront real estate is often more affordable than you may think. Yes, there are multi-million dollar showstoppers along every one of our local oceanfront communities. However, where there’s a will, there’s a way-along with alternatives that are more affordable solutions to single-family beach properties. For example, partial ownership is an excellent way to enjoy an oceanfront home for a select number of weeks or months each year. Another route is to buy a place, rent it as a vacation home and then use it at your convenience until the time is right to live there full time. And…each beach town in the greater Wilmington area has its share of oceanfront condos that are much more affordable than a traditional home. Another plus is that those types of properties often have built-in amenities such as swimming pools, marinas, and fitness centers.
