Easy Corn Chowder


6 slices bacon, cut into small strips

1 large onion, chopped

1 lb. russet potatoes, cut into small cubes

4 c. low-sodium chicken stock

2 tbsp. all-purpose flour

1/2 c. milk

3 c. corn

1/2 c. heavy cream

1 c. white Cheddar

kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1 tbsp. Chopped chives, for garnish



In a large pot over medium heat, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon onto a paper-towel-lined plate. Drain all but one tablespoon fat and cook the onions until translucent, about 4 minutes. Add potatoes and chicken stock and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 10 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.

When potatoes are tender, whisk flour into milk and stir into pot. Add corn, cream, cheese, and bacon and bring soup back to a boil, cooking until cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes more.

Season with salt and pepper, garnish with chives and serve.

Absorption Reports: 2nd Quarter 2018

Absorption rate, also referred to as “inventory levels” or “months of supply”, gives you an idea of the number of months it will take for the current inventory to be sold out based on the last 12 months of sales.

Housing prices stabilize when supply and demand come closer together. Generally speaking, 5-6 months of supply is “normal”. Less than 5 months of supply will result in APPRECIATING home prices, while 7 months or more of supply will result in DEPRECIATING home prices.  New Hanover County is showing a total of 2.8 months of inventory for existing home sales (for comparative purposes, it peaked at 22.6 months in 2009); Brunswick County is at 4.2 months (peaked at 20.0 months in 2009); and Pender County is at 4.9 months (peaked at 22.1 months in 2009).  As you can see from the three county charts below, inventory levels vary by price segment.  Take a look at the absorption reports for a better idea of where your house stands in the market, and contact an Intracoastal Realty agent to learn about the supply and demand for your specific neighborhood.

Intracoastal Realty’s Keith Beatty Team Earns National Ranking in U.S. REAL Trends ‘The Thousand’ List

Congratulations to the Keith Beatty Team for once again earning a spot on the list of “The Thousand Top Real Estate Teams” in the United States. It’s the fourth consecutive year Keith and his team have made the list, as determined by REAL Trends and advertised in The Wall Street Journal.

Keith attributes his success to diversity — with his team, with the properties they represent and the creative ways they market those properties. “We don’t chase a single price point or category of real estate, our team members don’t come from similar backgrounds, and our marketing is robust, but wide-ranging,” he says.

To that point, among his current 188 listings are a $10,000 single family lot in River Landing, a $239,000 new home in Castle Hayne, a $540,000 condo in downtown Wilmington and a $3.95 million estate on the Intracoastal Waterway.

But, it’s not the properties, it’s the people that make the Keith-machine work. “Together, our agents have a significant sphere of influence. They are different ages, come from different parts of the country and have different backgrounds. It assures we anticipate and meet the needs of our equally diverse clients,” Keith says.

Properties and people aren’t the only things that gather around Keith.  So do awards.  Over the decades he’s worked with Intracoastal, he’s earned many.  But it’s the disco ball he won from Dancing with the Stars to benefit St. Mary School that is a particular point of pride. “I worked my hardest for that!”

Luxury Property Spotlight: Asheville, St. Barthelemy, and Cancun

Intracoastal Realty’s luxury listings are featured on, the award-winning website that attracts over 3 million high-net-worth visitors.  We often spotlight outstanding listings from around the world on this blog.  This month’s property selections showcase stunning architecture and exceptional interior and exterior design in exotic locations!  We hope you enjoy learning more about these three extraordinary properties.


A remarkable architectural achievement, villa Artepea was designed to fully optimize its environment in the heart of the Domaine de Lurin. Johannes Zingerle’s project  is harmoniously integrated into the land thanks to a bridge, a unique feature in St Barths, a lift and a building set over three levels.  The surrounding nature blends beautifully with the lovely tropical garden, where you can through the stone paths and across the beautiful lawn, smelling the delicate scent of jasmine.

For the design, stone floors and customized wood furnishings provide a natural, mineral atmosphere, where elegance and simplicity prevail.

For the layout, the main floor has a fully open lounge/dining room that extends onto the terrace where you can laze in the sun next to the long emerald pool, facing St Jean bay. The kitchen, a TV lounge and a first bedroom can also be found on this level.

The master bedroom occupies the 1st floor, with a huge sofa facing the panoramic window, a designer desk, and height of luxury is an outdoor bathtub and shower, nestled in an alcove.  The garden level offers two bedrooms and the technical rooms. The villa also has  high-tech equipment, including a home control system and curved flat screen televisions.

Modern and refined, yet still warm and inviting, villa Artepea ideally reflects tropical elegance.

Spectacular designer home in Puerto Cancun.  This unique residence of 6512 Sq.ft on a 6000 Sq. ft lot offers three bedrooms, canal front and is a ‘one of a kind’ opportunity for owning a fully furnished ‘turn key’ home. It’s prime location on one of the best spots in this gated community and a well thought out architectural concept gives it great privacy.

It is located inside Cancun’s modern high end gated development ‘’Puerto Cancun’’, one of Mexico’s most exclusive Marinas, which offers residential and commercial amenities. A new spectacular Marina Mall has just opened its doors offering the best international and local stores and many new restaurants and bars offer great food and entertainment around the marina walks. Puerto Cancun is right between Cancun’s famous ‘Hotel Zone’ and Down Town’ in the very best location.

The residence is very well thought out and designed with a lot of luxury details, and furnished with great taste. It’s in ‘’ready to move in’ condition.  The location of this canal home is inside a private gated residential development with 24 hour security control.  The large terrace has a pool and a wooden sun deck and offers a very private outdoor dining area.  A 75 foot dock is right next to the terrace area.

It is definitely worth to take a look at this property if you are looking for a luxury residence in Cancun.
