How does one actually find a city like Wilmington North Carolina, Brunswick Islands and the Cape Fear Region which is said to be one of the HOT list of places to live?
It is called a BUZZ, and people talk, and the talk is about the wonderful lifestyle, climate, attractions, opportunities for the movie industry and the affordability of living in a seaside resort area on the southeastern coastline.
The Cape Fear Region is truly a community with many faces, and thinking about coastal North Carolina, your visions go to the beaches, sand and southern cuisine. What most individuals aren’t aware of is how diverse this area really is.
Neighborhoods run from the rivers to the sea and beyond the busy city streets. If you are seeking a night life and city life, historic downtown will be your cup of tea. Walk to restaurants and shops, take in an event at Thalian Hall, live in a condo, historic home or loft. Street side you can sip coffee at a bistro table or just ride the trolley for fun. Downtown offers bungalows, vintage homes and views of the riverfront activity and famous USS Battleship NC.
To get away to the suburbs, as the northerners call it, you can find yourself living on a golf course, along the Intracoastal waterway or in a town home or condo with amenities galore including theatre rooms, fitness centers and Olympic size pools. Many of our neighborhoods are just that – quiet areas for families, empty nesters or singles. Lush green grasses, crepe myrtles, oak and magnolia tress grace the yards. You can tinker around in the small towns, visit the shops and dine on the street cafes or decks.
We are the answer to a lot of parents’ dream because of our major University and community colleges. Here many parents purchase a house, condo or town home for their college bound students with the ultimate motive of turning it into a second or retirement home in the future. This is just another diverse feature of this community which also appeals to today’s investor.
As we move away from the hustle and bustle, through to the outskirts of the city life, we find ‘smart growth’ communities popping up which offer comfortable living, restaurants and retail stores. And, when all else has been explored in our diverse area, some just choose to laze away the days at the beach with their fishing piers, walking loops, pet friendly areas, condos, single family homes, marinas and homes with private boat slips. Get rid of the suit, tie or business suit. Here you find a more layed back community where flip flops and Hawaiian shirts rule.
Head north or south and you find quieter areas where growth is booming, but where value is top notch. The area offers new communities everywhere for first time home buyers or multi-million dollar spenders looking for a large estate. There are gated communities, revitalized communities, art communities, family oriented communities, and communities where culture is steps away. The area boast a friendly International Airport which can serve you or your guests needs whether traveling close by or abroad.
This isn’t a remote area but a most warm, inviting friendly area of wonderful people from all walks of life.
