Intracoastal Sells First $3M home since October 2010

Intracoastal Realty Sells First $3 Million%20 Home in Southeastern North Carolina since October 2010

 14 Southridge Road on Wrightsville Beach Sells for $3.15 Million 

 

WILMINGTON, NC — Intracoastal Realty reached a significant sales milestone this month, with the $3.15 million sale of 14 Southridge Road on Wrightsville Beach, NC. This is the first sale over $3 million in Brunswick, New Hanover, and Pender counties since October 2010 and the first $3 million-plus sale on Wrightsville Beach since September 2009, according to local MLS data.

The nearly 5,000 square foot home is one of Wrightsville Beach’s premier oceanfront estates, with fantastic views of the Atlantic Ocean and a host of luxurious amenities. Intracoastal Realty agents represented both the buyer and seller of the property. The sales team of Angie Pool & Associates marketed the property, and Susan Keck of Bobby Brandon’s team negotiated the sale on behalf of the buyer.

The last $3 million-plus home sold in the area was Intracoastal Realty’s Margaret Barclay’s Piper’s Neck Road listing on Figure Eight Island, which sold for $3,495,000 on October 25, 2010. The last sale above $3 Million on Wrightsville Beach was Intracoastal’s Mark Bodford’s Parmele Blvd listing, which sold for $3.2 Million on September 15, 2009.

“The recent uptick in the sale of high-end properties is a potential indicator for a recovering real estate market,” said Jim Wallace, CEO of Intracoastal Realty. “We’re encouraged by the resurgence and think it bodes well for a recovering market.”

According to the Wilmington MLS, five properties have sold for $1 million or more since January 2012.  During the same period last year, only one property sold for over $1 million.

Intracoastal Realty is the area leader in selling luxury properties. In 2011, Wilmington MLS data showed that Intracoastal Realty sold 41 properties in excess of $1 million, while the second place company sold eight.

Established in 1976, Intracoastal Realty is the largest independent and locally owned and operated real estate brokerage firm in southeastern North Carolina. Services include real estate brokerage, property management and new homes marketing. Intracoastal Realty operates eight offices in Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach, Brunswick County and Topsail Beach. The company’s 250%20 agents sold more than $406 million in residential properties in 2011. For more information, visit http://www.intracoastalrealty.com/ or www.intracoastalrentals.com.

Intracoastal Realty Listings on HGTV

2012-1-House-Hunters

Recognize these houses? Both homes were recently shown on HGTV’s House Hunters.  The episode was about a New Jersey family who moved from New Jersey to North Carolina. After living in a rental home in Leland they decided buy a place in Wilmington. They had a $1.25M budget and need to live within 30 minutes of the hospital.

Their agent showed them 3 homes that met their criteria. It’s no surprise two of the three homes featured on this House Hunters episode were Intracoastal Realty Listings.  Intracoastal Realty is the leader in market share for homes priced $500,000 and over in the Wilmington area.

2012-1-500-and-above
2012-1-1M-and-above

We won’t tell you which of these two houses they bought. The show aired on January 2nd but look out for additional showings of Episode HNT-5509H on HGTV. Or, you can always search IntracoastalRealty.com to see what’s available in Wilmington NC Real Estate!
