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

....And be sure to have that lender explain the importance of the property's habitability.

Hi Kevin,

Alicia and Justin are right. HO6 policies are required if you are getting a loan on the property. If you are paying cash, insurance isn't required but highly recommended. Some HOA's are in better financial situations than others.

You can find a great condo at Carolina Beach / Kure Beach for a great price. Take advantage before the prices and rates go up.

Feel free to call me or text me if you have any additional questions. Here are some condos at the beach
