You can learn more about non-buildable lots by visiting the NC CAMA wesbite. Homes must be build a certain distance from the line of stable vegetation. The distance depends on the size of the home and the erosion rate at that particular lot.

this home is not rebuildable, but there are Ocean Front Homes that are rebuildable also there are lovely homes that are within short walking distance that are rebuildable and are priced with the price point of this home. Would love the opportunity to work with you to find a home that would be suitable for your desired home in the area, I work from Oak Island to Sunset Beach. Call or email at any time. As always,

More money than sense??? LOL No really, they are fairly cheap and if you are lucky enough that nothing happens to it for years ie: fire, flood, hurricane, they will generate great rental income in the spring, summer and fall.

Why would anyone buy a non rebuildable house?

Not all oceanfront homes on Oak Island are non-rebuildable, so no it's not common; however, it's not unusual either. It all depends on the exact location of the property, and more specifically the determination of the line of vegetation as set by CAMA (Coastal Area Management Act). The same is true for ALL beach front property in N.C. Homes not located on the oceanfront do not come under these restrictions.
