Hi Goseedo, I see that the question is pretty old but wanted to try to spred the word that our bank in Wilmington CresCom Bank, does off Condotel FIXED rates. No minimum loan amount or size. We have been providing this loan to the Mrytle Beach Market for a couple of years and have now built a couple branches here in Wilmington. Give me a call anytime to discuss.

Good afternoon!

The discrepancy with the list price on the home vs. the tax value is due to the fact that the home is a fractional ownership. So the list price is for a portion of ownership in the home. Fractional ownership is a method in which several unrelated parties can share in a piece of real estate. One of the main motivators for a fractional purchase is the ability to share the costs of maintaining an asset that will not be used full time by one owner.

If you would like additional information on this home, or other homes in the Carolina Beach area, please feel free to contact me at anytime. It would be my pleasure to assist in your search.

Good afternoon! Did you receive an answer to your question? From what I can see in our MLS system, it looks like the home does not have central air. If you are interested in similar homes, I would be glad to compile you a list of potential options. Please feel free to reach me at your earliest convenience.

It is difficult to give a price/sf cost, as there are many variables involved. For example, piling (raised) construction is more expensive than building on a slab or crawlspace, and the flood zone in which the property is located may determine the type of foundation needed. In addition, building directly on the oceanfront will be more expensive than building inland, due to the added costs necessitated by code parameters (e.g., breakaway walls). Lastly, it will also depend on the level of upgrades chosen. For example, vinyl siding will be less expensive than fiber cement board siding, carpet vs. hardwoods, granite vs. Formica, as well as upgraded lighting, plumbing, etc. It is best to meet with several builders, share with them your floor plan, and allow them to assist you in choosing products that fit your budget. ... more

Carolina and Kure beach is a great place to retire Im sure you wont be disappointed in all that Pleasure island has to offer. If you are into outside activities this is the place to be you can fish on the pier ,ride your bike , kayak up the river this place has it all. Also the beauty of living here full time is that the island is almost deserted after the season is over and we locals have the beach to our-self its wonderful !

For more info please contact me I'm sure i can help you in your search and give all the info you need to make that right decision in buying a home here on the island.
