Fractional Ownership: The Pros & Cons

Who doesn’t dream of having an oceanfront property with breathtaking views and relaxing beach vibes?

What if you could achieve that dream at a fraction of the cost? Fractional property ownership is exponentially increasing in popularity, with the closest comparison being a timeshare. 

Fractional ownership allows you to own a share of the deed to the property itself instead of a timeshare where you would own the time you can use in the property.

Many utilize this to invest in a high-dollar property with their loved ones, basically allowing them year-long access to the home and a spot to go with your friends when you all just need a break! Let’s look at some of the other pros and cons fractional property ownership can offer:


  • Affordability! Theoretically, if you took ten friends and invested in a million-dollar property, you could own a million-dollar beach house for 1/10th of the price!
  • It has the potential to be an excellent investment! Financially, investing in the ownership of a beach house with friends and family known to be reliable can make for an enjoyable experience for everyone. Additionally, the memories to be made are limitless.
  • Security. Unlike a timeshare, you can have peace of mind knowing exactly who and what is in your home at all times. You also go into the homeownership knowing that all responsibilities can be divided equally.

[Learn more about how you can save big money with fractional property ownership by clicking here!]


  • Group Consensus. Taking care of a home comes with a lot of decisions to be made. From paint colors to patio furniture, making decisions as a group while maintaining effective communication can be challenging.
  • Limitations. Be wary of the potential HOA restrictions or new taxes that may emerge with buying a fractionally owned property. While this isn’t always the case, sometimes these properties can be banned in specific areas, so stay informed.

How much does it flood in Wilmington?

There is no question that Wilmington, NC, is a highly desirable area.

With the Cape Fear River on one side, the Atlantic Ocean on the other, and a charming downtown in-between, it’s a place that most can only dream of living.

There are beautiful beaches for relaxing, inlets for cruising, mild winters, and many activities year-round. However, like other areas of the country, we deal with extreme weather. While northern states have snowstorms or blizzards, we have hurricanes and tropical storms. When buyers are looking to buy in Coastal North Carolina, there’s one question that’s top of their minds – how much does it flood in Wilmington?

Flooding can be unpredictable.

Living on the water is a position everyone dreams of being in at least once in their life. While there are many obvious perks to moving to a tranquil beach town like Wilmington, the flood zones are a viable cause for hesitation. 

No one wants to buy in a community that floods. However, we live on the coast where there is lots of water, and there are communities that we can just expect will flood when a large storm comes through.

Find a flood map.

Of course, not all communities are that transparent. As a solution, there are flood maps that will tell you the chances of a property flooding. Each property in our area is assigned a flood zone based on elevation and proximity to a water body. This zone can determine if lenders require flood insurance. However, flood zones don’t guarantee your home will or will not be damaged by flooding.

Most properties in the area, such as Wrightsville Beach, Figure Eight Island, and Topsail, are considered moderate to high flood zones. However, only 10% of New Hanover County is categorized as high-risk flood zones despite its waterfront properties. Oak Island and the majority of Kure Beach are elevated regions that are at low risk for flooding.

How to Find a Low Flood-Risk Property.

In addition to flood maps, there are other ways to find out about flooding. If flooding is a significant concern for you, here are some steps you can take to verify the odds are low for your new home flooding:

  • Research: Because of local news outlets and social media, we’ve all heard of local communities that were hard hit by flooding in recent hurricanes. Be mindful of these communities and understand why those issues occurred. Take the steps necessary to avoid them, and keep in mind that the city and county have been making repairs and upgrades since the storm to alleviate these issues.
  • Find out the home’s elevation: There are phone apps and websites that can give you this information. If it’s a high lot, the chances of flooding are lower. There is no guarantee your home won’t flood, but it’s one of the multiple factors to consider concerning the others.
  • Chat with neighbors: This can be in person or part of a neighborhood Facebook community. Ask them how the area fared during past storms. Did homes flood or just streets? If the flooding was caused by malfunctioning equipment, has it been fixed?

While Wilmington has experienced damage from flooding, the city has worked to combat rising sea levels. The famous Riverwalk is also built to combat incoming water from the river, and county guidelines also require structures to be constructed within a 100-year floodplain.

Hurricanes are a trade-off that we must endure to live on our beautiful coast. If you have any questions about purchasing a home in the Wilmington area, give us a call at 808-224-8816, or email at

Is it a good investment to buy a beach house?

A beach house purchase is an investment that can reap reward after reward. 

Buying a beach house can bring an excellent return on investment, a reliable income stream, and access to a delightful vacation spot.

A permanent vacation.

The best reward is, of course, is that a beach house would provide a reliable and beautiful vacation destination for you and your family. 

The lifelong memories that come with family vacations are priceless and irreplaceable. North Carolina beaches are family and dog-friendly travel destinations that make for the perfect getaway without the usual vacation stress. In addition, when you vacation to your beach house you will be saving a lot of money compared to typical travel costs. 

And if you aren’t quite ready to dive into a purchase, there are ample rental homes with optimal areas and beautiful designs available daily. 

Rental income. 

Additionally, buying a beach house has the potential to provide a steady income stream. Typically, vacation rentals generate a much higher income than traditional rental properties. 

Tourists flood North Carolina's coastal region every month, even in the off-season, because of what the cities have to offer. 

Significant attractions include:  

These attractions and more bring in thousands of visitors looking for places to stay throughout the year.

Tax benefits. 

Owners of vacation rentals can write off business-related expenses such as mortgage interest, property management fees, marketing costs, insurance, property taxes, and repair costs. 

Consult your local real estate expert to find out what tax deductions apply to you.

Property appreciation. 

The value of real estate usually increases with inflation. This means that an investment into your beach house now will probably be worth much more later. 

If you mind your due diligence and preparation, buying a beach house for rental income can be a very lucrative venture. To ensure that you end finding the perfect beach house, feel free to email, text, or call me at your convenience if you have any questions.

Oak Island is considered a classic family vacation spot in North Carolina, so not only will your pup be happy, but the rest of the family will be too. 


Another island on the eastern seaboard of North Carolina is Topsail Beach. At this coastal hot spot, dogs must be on a leash (no longer than 20ft) when off their property limits from the period between May 15th through September 30th of each year. Additionally, all dogs must be on a leash from April 1st through September 30th of each year in the area designated as Coastal Barrier Resources System (CBRS) Unit L07 by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service marked by the town. The person must always be prepared to remove any "deposits" left by the dog. These regulations apply to the entire town, including the beach. 

Topsail Island is a quaint town with a charming atmosphere full of unique restaurants and shops to suit anyone's style. The area has plenty of lodging options that allow pets and include ocean views, pools, hot tubs, outside showers, and patios.  

Kure Beach 

Located just 18 miles from Wilmington, you'll find the kind of small-town beach from your childhood. Home to the oldest fishing pier on the Atlantic Coast, an oceanfront park, a state aquarium, and beautiful seaside surroundings, Kure Beach provides the perfect setting for you, your family, and your pup to explore and reconnect in this pure and natural playground.

Kure Beach allows pups on the beach from October 1st through March 31st. Leashes must be restrained to 15 ft, and dogs are not permitted on the beach during the town's season. 

Figure Eight Island 

Located just east of Wilmington, Figure Eight Island is a destination that has inspired curiosity for decades. The island is privately owned by its homeowners and a rumored haven for celebrities and any visitor who wants a luxurious and private escape.

The only way visitors can access Figure Eight Island is by renting or purchasing a vacation home or residence. While difficult to access, visitors who decide to rent or buy a home on the island will be treated to one of the quietest beach landscapes in the area. Figure Eight Island retains its reputation as one of the most pristine destinations in the coastal Cape Fear area. So, if you and Fido are looking for a serene escape, Figure Eight may be the place for you!  

Leashed dogs are allowed from May 15th through September 30th on Figure Eight Island beaches.

Bald Head Island 

Board the ferry for the 20-minute ride to Bald Head Island and leave your car behind, along with the stress of the mainland. This charming island will give you and your pup everything you want and more.

Bald Head Island is one of the few beaches that allow dogs to roam freely off-leash at any time of the year.

Coastal Carolina Properties Top 5 Favorite Residential Communities!

Wilmington, North Carolina, is definitely a place where anyone can find their niche - and, more importantly, their home.

With so much to offer and so many special interest communities to choose from, here are our top five favorites. 

Greenville Sound

A whopping five minutes from Wrightsville Beach, this community offers homes. Here you can find luxurious amenities such as a yacht club, private boat ramp, and assigned boat slips.

The actual homes are works of some notorious local architects with clear attention to detail and several built-in amenities that will come in handy for life on the water.

The Cape

Want to live within minutes of the beach? Maybe you’re looking for a waterfront property itself? The Cape community has an active HOA, a world-class public golf course, and positions its residents literally minutes from the Southport ferry, Fort Fisher beaches, and Pleasure Island.

Inlet Point Harbor

An ocean lover’s dream. This community is literally engineered to sustain secure, deep-water boat slips, channel, and turning basin all leading to the Intercoastal Waterway. The residents are quite diverse in age, but all share a common love for a carefree life on the water.

Rivers Edge

No surprise here! This quaint neighborhood is conveniently located on the edge of the Cape Fear River. The community has many things to do as it is placed in Monkey Junction and a short walking distance from Echo Farms Golf & Country Club.

Porter’s Neck Plantation

Just north of Wilmington, NC, Porter’s Neck Plantation is a premier gated community with a plethora of amenities. Golf Digest magazine named the Porter’s Neck Country Club golf course “#1 Coastal Course” in NC. Just a short drive to beautiful beaches and endless restaurants and shops, this division offers both seclusion and accessibility.

An Honorable Mention:


This community offers elegantly designed homes, with an abundance of amenities, in a gated community directly on the Intercoastal Waterway. If you’re looking for privacy, this community has 29 miles of just that to offer you, along with a 24-hour community patrol and 3 guarded gates.

2021 Wilmington Market Trends

With a growing population of approximately 120,000 people, Wilmington is home to several housing developments that can make an excellent investment!

The market has expanded to the surrounding city areas, more than doubling the population and the opportunity. Median home value has increased over 5% in the past year valuing homes in the upper $200,000’s with the median listing being over $290,000 and a projected rise of 5-10% annually for the foreseeable future.

Wilmington, NC real estate forecast

Wilmington, NC market trends have shown that the number of investors outweighs what is actually available, with the sale-to-list ratio at a staggering 99.22%.

The median listing price per square foot is approximately $166, and, on average, those are projected to sell after 64 days actively on the market. While they fluctuate from time-to-time, these trends are expected to increase still in the upcoming year. Check out our featured listings here

Job prospects

However, what truly makes this city such a great potential investment is its continuous development outside of the real estate market. The increasing population has led the way to a growing job market that has opened up many opportunities for residents. The present UNC campus, community college, PPD, medical laboratory, and film industry solidifies Wilmington’s economy on the back of a diverse community.

With everything this place has to offer, housing here is priced very reasonably compared to the price tag of a three-bedroom by the beach in California. Others have even found success in mobile parks. More and more developers are buying out land in a mobile park meaning money in the owner’s pocket at a relatively low cost.

The rental market

The rental market isn’t going anywhere either. With an ever-present student population, the demand for rental properties a commutable distance from either school will be around for a while. The average single household salary is around $50,000, meaning that actual homeownership, with the projected growth rate in mind, is highly improbable for most.

A strong portion of the population is also working irregularly due to school, which will prevent most from buying a home and keep rental rates high. Additionally, legal matters make being a landlord easier in NC: sensible late fee limitations, no pet laws, allowance for a reasonable deposit or bond, no state notice of entry laws, and flexibility of lease termination due to non-payment or breach of the lease contract.

Entertainment options

On top of housing and job choices, there is no shortage of fun here in WilmingtonWilmington is the 8th largest city in North Carolina, and with that comes a lot of fun developments and new experiences to try. Some of these experiences include: 

Low Taxes

One of the most notable assets investing in an NC property is the low property and income taxes. The national average is about 1.1%, while Wilmington’s is 0.85%. North Carolina also came in twelfth on the list of states with the lowest income taxes. This means your investment will be subject to lower taxes for a change!

What to Do in Wilmington

Wilmington is the 8th largest city in North Carolina, and with that comes a lot of fun developments and new experiences to try.

Here’s a list of some of our favorite things to do, and best grub, in Wilmington:

Airlie Gardens 

One of the most picturesque locations in the entire city, the gardens at Airlie offer a diverse selection of flora and a whimsical display. Special events like weddings take place here quite often, so be sure to check out their online calendar!

Additionally, if you’re lucky enough to be here around the holidays, the Enchanted Airlie lights display is definitely a sight to see.

Sunrise/Sunset Paddle Boarding

What better way to wake up or wind down than paddleboarding down the Intercoastal Waterway while the sun is rising or setting? Several local paddleboard rental companies offer great deals if you don’t have one at your disposal.

Whether you’re alone or with a loved one, this is an experience everyone needs to have.

Historic Downtown

Eclectic is the best way to describe downtown Wilmington. There is truly something for everyone from a massive, decommissioned battleship, drool-worthy restaurants, horse-drawn carriages, and dog-friendly shops! 

Nikki’s Steakhouse & Sushi Bar

Take it from a self-proclaimed sushi buff; Nikki's is the place to go if you’re looking for delicious hibachi or sushi. Located on Military Cutoff Rd, their food is something to keep coming back for. Their sister restaurant, Nori, located on Shipyard Blvd, is equally as delicious with an even greater variety of Asian cuisine – my suggestion: The Angel Hair Roll.

Port Land Grille

Located in Lumina Station, this is arguably the best fine dining in Wilmington. With Port Land Grills frequently changing menu, open kitchen, and experienced staff, you get the freshest and the finest. They offer a lovely patio setting as well for those warm summer nights. Some other must-visit restaurants in Wilmington include: 

  • South Beach Grill
  • Indochine
  • Ceviches 
  • Savorez
  • RX Restaurant & Bar
  • Manna
  • Fork & Cork

Jungle Rapids

Water parks, laser tag, arcade, oh my! This place is every kids’ dream! Their arcade is state-of-the-art and will keep your little ones occupied for hours. If they do, by chance get bored, simply take them outside to partake in go-karts, water slides, mini-golf, or a drop zone ride.

Spill Coffee Co

The product of two ambitious women taking their coffee truck and transforming it into a whole café. The store is very stylish and adorned with pink accents and cozy furniture, making it the perfect work environment. Their house blend is farmed by an all-female coffee farm with endless drink options and a plethora of beneficial health additives to choose from.

They also partner with other local businesses on their sweet treats and breakfast foods.

Sunset Swimming

Not everything fun has to cost money! Time your trip and take your loved ones to the beach at sunset to enjoy the last bit of sunshine of the day. This is a great way to make fun memories with friends and family and, if you’re lucky, the water can actually be pretty warm at the end of a summer’s day!

Wilmington is one Southern destination with something for everyone, and it's overflowing with coastal fun! Want to know about what Wilmington, NC has to offer - check out our blog

Dogs in Wilmington

Dogs in Wilmington

It's no question that Wilmington, NC, is home to dog lovers!

Every day you can expect to see a handful of folks walking down the street with their furry best friends. With more and more people bringing their animals to vacation with them in town, here is a helpful guide on where your pup can go!

Wrightsville Beach

Pets have to remain on their leashes at all times. That's a given virtually anywhere in this town. Additionally, you are expected to clean up all pet waste. There are numerous trash cans available at every access with complimentary bags. 

Pets are allowed on the beach from April 1 to September 30, according to Wrightsville Beach officials. 

The Wrightsville Beach Loop is a popular trail that dogs can go on at any time! The town has also implemented dog-friendly water fountains so that your pooch is hydrated and well-taken care of.

Historic Downtown Wilmington

You can see several dog walkers downtown at any given time. The grid system, and beautiful Riverwalk, allow you to walk for ages and explore various shops and bars. Some shops will even allow you to bring your dog inside with you as long as they are well behaved - make sure to pop your head in and ask a worker before you do!

Most restaurants in the area will have outdoor seating available so that you can take a break too! If you're fortunate, you may see a bar dog or two!

UNCW Campus

I couldn't even begin to count how many time's I've taken my pup to the grass field in front of Randall Library to run alongside frisbees and soccer balls. Be prepared to get some attention there, though! Many dorm-living students will be thrilled to have a pup to love on for a few moments.

It also deserves to be said if your dog is a bit more on the anti-social side that this is probably not the best place for them.

Ogden/Scotts Hill

This is full of open, expansive places for your pup to roam and burn that energy. One of the more popular places for dogs is Ogden Park. Pets will love to get some off-leash exercise at this grassy, fenced Wilmington dog park. In addition, there is a beautiful pond and plenty of shade.

Another hot spot for dogs of Wilmington is the Abbey Nature Preserve. The 67-acre preserve has a 2.4-mile nature trail winding through woods and crossing over the millpond. Because the preserve maintains a busy schedule of activities throughout the year, all dogs must be leashed.

All dogs WOOF Wilmington! And with so many pup-friendly places and dog parks to visit in the Wilmington area, it's obvious why!
