Intracoastal Realty Expands Surf City Office

New Topsail Island Bridge

With the new Surf City bridge now open, additional traffic and, with it, growing buyer interest in the Topsail/Surf City region is sure to follow.

Anticipating that growth, Intracoastal Realty has doubled the size of its Surf City office and moved to Triton Lane, putting us directly on the path to the new bridge.

“You can’t miss us,” says Sandy Ledbetter, a resident and realtor on the island for 30 years, who will continue as Intracoastal Realty’s broker-in-charge.  The office has another five agents, all focused full-time on the region’s real estate market.

The Surf City/Topsail Island has long drawn families from other parts of the state who are seeking vacation or retirement property.  Folks from Wallace, Clinton, Warsaw and other Eastern North Carolina towns are eager to recreate childhood memories of vacationing on Topsail Beach. Buyer trends also show growing interest from the Triangle, particularly among those who moved from the mid-Atlantic region and find the prices at Topsail comparatively affordable to the cost of homes on Maryland, New York and New Jersey shores.

Buyers aren’t the only ones showing interest in the Island.  Developers have increased their activity exponentially.  According to the MLS, in 2017, there was $67M in new construction; in 2018 that figure jumped to $92M.  In April, the first phase of Waterside at Surf City, a development of 4 acres of commercial property and more than 3,200 residential units, including a neighborhood for active adults, was unanimously approved by the Surf City Town Council.  Infrastructure there is underway.

Local government, too, is improving infrastructure to accommodate what everyone sees as continued growth. Surf City Elementary and Middle Schools opened in time for the 2018/19 school year. And with forward-looking annexation completed a decade ago to better accommodate commercial development, the island has welcomed Food Lion, Harris Teeter, Publix, Lowes and CVS in recent years.

“Gone are the days that Topsail Beach posted a ‘Closed for the Winter’ sign,” recalls Sandy.  “Those were the days when you had to drive for a decent cell signal and the only grocery store was an IGA.”

Yes, those days are behind us.  But, today’s market value is hard to find elsewhere on the east coast.  Single family homes can be purchased in the $300K range, with one-bedroom condo’s available under $100 thousand.  “And, that still delivers waterfront,” says Sandy, adding, “When you’re on an island, every home, just about, has a good water view!”

If you’re interested in knowing more about Surf City, Topsail and North Topsail properties, call the Intracoastal office, 910-328-3000.  Chances are what you see there today will be the root of “I remember when….” memories decades from now.

Topsail Island: A Look at the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue & Rehabilitation Center

Surf City is home to one of the few sea turtle hospitals on the entire East Coast. The Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue & Rehabilitation Center is a 13,600 square foot facility open for public tours. Get up-close with loggerhead and other sea turtles being nursed back to health and, if your timing is good, get to see recovered sea turtles return home to the Atlantic. Jean Beasley, Director of the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue & Rehabilitation Center in Surf City, is pictured here with friend and real estate broker for Intracoastal Realty, Craig Stinson.

The Beasley Center is located in the heart of the Topsail Region, an area comprised of six distinct communities in two counties located between Wilmington and Jacksonville. For more information regarding The Beasley Center, please visit their website.

Hampstead, NC is an unincorporated community on the mainland in Pender County adjacent to Wilmington. Hampstead has been growing significantly in recent years attracting people looking for life on the Intracoastal Waterway (ICWW), high quality schools, and its calm lifestyle, and ease of getting to commercial centers in Wilmington.

Holly Shelter is an incorporated community in the middle of the Topsail Region. Located on the mainland in Onslow County, Holly Shelter is known as a friendly destination for retired military and for enlisted families with one spouse working in Wilmington and the other in Jacksonville. Holly Shelter has some spectacular communities nestled along the ICWW. Holly Shelter is definitely a hidden gem of the region.

North Topsail Beach was incorporated in the 1990s and is almost an exclusively residential community on the north end of Topsail Island. This part of the island is known for mostly newer construction and a great summer influx of visitors looking for a quiet week away at the beach.

Surf City is the heart of Topsail Island. This incorporated town is located in Pender County on the island and mainland. Surf City decided a number of years ago to invest in water infrastructure and it has paid off, making the town the commercial center of the region and also home to a fast growing year-round residential population. In coming years, Surf City will host a new high-rise bridge to the island, replacing one of the only remaining swing bridges on the East Coast. In addition to high quality Pender County schools, the town is host to a new satellite campus of Cape Fear Community College.

Sneads Ferry is an unincorporated community adjacent to Jacksonville and Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Sneads Ferry is known as a quiet village with an active commercial shrimping fleet. You can visit the docks and watch shrimp boats leave and return while eating fresh catch at some of their famous restaurants.

Topsail Beach is an incorporated town on the south end of Topsail Island. Topsail Beach is a classic North Carolina beach town with dog-friendly (even horse-friendly!) beaches and a wide variety of homes from classic beach cottages to new construction.
