The beach is the obvious reason why people move to Oak Island NC. Who wouldn’t want to live at the beach? Even if you can’t live here full time, a vacation property or second home is the ultimate goal for all beach lovers. After deciding to purchase a home in the area, you begin your search of oceanfront homes for sale in Oak Island. We recommend working with a qualified Oak Island Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Elliott Coastal Living real estate agent to help you find the perfect property for your needs, wants and budget.
Choosing a property from the number of oceanfront homes for sale in Oak Island can be overwhelming. Determining a few items at the beginning of your search can help narrow the choices down to a more reasonable number. A couple things to think about before beginning your search of oceanfront homes for sale in Oak Island are:
1. Location. Is being on the oceanfront truly important to you? Do you want oceanfront or ocean view. Ocean view is usually less expensive than direct oceanfront. Or maybe your dream is to be able to walk out of your back door and onto the golf course where you can play a round of golf at anytime yet still be a short drive from the beach. The size of the property can also be another important factor for your oceanfront homes for sale in Oak Island search.
2. Property Type. Some buyers want to have a maintenance free property, so they will want to look at condos and/or townhouses where the HOA is responsible for maintaining the common areas. While this type of carefree living may sound appealing, these type of properties often come with a hefty monthly HOA bill. The more amenities, the higher the monthly cost. When looking for oceanfront homes for sale in Oak Island, amenities and HOA dues are an important factor. While amenities are important for vacation rental properties, perhaps if you are planning to live in the property full time, might not be what you are looking for. One of our qualified Oak Island real estate agents can help you weigh the pros and cons and figure out what type of property might be best for you.
3. Budget. Of course, a very important factor in your oceanfront homes for sale in Oak Island search will be your budget. While everyone dreams of an oceanfront beach house – you may be able to get more for your money if you elect to purchase a home that may need a little work and are willing to do some of the grunt work yourself. If you aren’t the handy type, your real estate agent can also help you find a network of qualified contractors who can help you make the almost perfect home – perfect!
