Ken because of the condition of the coastal markets, there are comparable values that are all over the place. Ask your agent to get you some sold comparables for the property, so that you can see what others have sold for recently. It is an incredible time to buy right now, if you're going to hold the property from 3 to 10 years or more. It's going to take some time to get back to any "resemblance" of normal, but long term, real estate will always increase in value. This downturn in the market cycle will correct itself once we seel some of the inventory that's been sitting out there on the market and get rid of all those signs that you see while driving around looking at property. Once you've got some sold comps, then decide if the investment is going to pay off soon enough for you, and help you reach your goals. ... more

Hi Mm,

My name is Ashley, and I'm a Project Coordinator with Grande Villas at Indian Beach, NC.

You are correct in saying that Grande Villas at Indian Beach "seems very unique on the NC coast," and when you compare the prices with other local offerings, they might, as you say, "seem rather high." Grande Villas really is a unique luxury oceanfront residence for the Crystal Coast area, and the $620,000 - $1.8 price tags reflect this. For Grande Villas, the price reflects the quality of your oceanfront home.

The Grande Villas suite features include materials such as marble, limestone tile, granite, stainless steel, berber carpet, custom cabinets, etc., and the Grande Villas amenities include a Health and Fitness Center, Osprey Club Lounge, Infinity-edge Feature Pool, Pool and Pavilion, Poolside Refreshment Bar, Spinnaker's Kids' Club, Outdoor Fire Pit, Pet Bark Park, Direct Beach Access, etc.

You can purchase an oceanfront residence for less, but it more than likely won't have all the luxury suite features and distinctive amenities of Grande Villas. Plus, it might be made out of wood and not be made out of concrete and steel with Pella impact-resistant windows.

If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact me.

You should try placing an ad on one of the free home trading sites that actually work like Craigslist or or possibly even ebay
