Buyers looking at waterfront property are often motivated by the convenience and caché of owning private, direct access to water. In southeastern coastal North Carolina, this could be property with frontage on the Cape Fear River, Intracoastal Waterway, or the Atlantic Ocean.
Buyers considering purchasing a home on the water need to consider how they intend to enjoy their new waterfront home.
If the view is your primary motivation for living on the water, the direction that the home faces is important. An east-facing home will provide views of the sunrise, and over the Atlantic Ocean, those early morning vistas can be spectacular. For sunsets, west-facing windows and decks will give the optimal perch to enjoy the waning day. Homes that face south often have light all day, and can provide a view of both sunrise and sunset.
Views of the water can be impacted by easements or a community’s covenants, conditions, and restrictions. Waterfront property should be evaluated f ...

Kirk Pugh, Broker/Realtor with KBT Realty Group - Keller Williams, in Wilmington North Carolina, reflects on 2020, a year which is in now in hindsight.
Eight days into 2021, and Kirk sees that the new year has started with a bang.
2020 was a challenging year for everybody on many different levels, although in real estate not one, Kirk reflects. Instead of talking about numbers, success, and patting the KBT Realty Group team on the back, suffice it to say, Kirk notes, that Wilmington North Carolina has a fast-paced, rapidly growing, dynamic real estate market that is extremely beneficial for sellers right now.
Certainly we can sell a house for top-dollar, in this market, in Wilmington, today, Kirk says. The challenge is, where does that seller go? Are they trading laterally, are they downsizing either from a location standpoint or a pricing standpoint?
For sellers today making a decision about selling, is the value of the sale great enough to buy you out of the pain-in-the- ...

Teri Moylan is a Broker/Realtor with KBT Realty Group - Keller Williams, in Wilmington North Carolina. Teri grew up on North Carolina, about two hours from Wilmington.
As a child, one of her favorite things was the family packing up for the day and heading to the beach with beach toys, rafts, and sunblock to make a great family day out. After college at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, she ended up on the West Coast. In seven years, she found herself having moved four times working in entertainment marketing for the casino industry. She loved what the work she was doing, but after four moves, she realized that there is an art to relocation, and decided to take that personal experience and put it to work helping other people who were buying and selling real estate.
Teri Moylan has been an active participant in the real estate industry for more than fifteen years. She started out selling in Reno, Nevada, and, when her son was born, she and her husband made an active ch ...
