Ginger Harper I am so happy that you and your family are considering the Southport/Oak Island area. As you are interested in Southport or Oak Island, I feel I must tell you that having lived in North Carolina all my life, I am very partial to this area and feel we live in one of the most beautiful places in the country. Our temperature is moderate during the winter months, we always have a cool breeze off the ocean during the summer and housing is affordable. Southport has a small-town homey feel, and yet we have everything at our fingertips, from beautiful ocean and riverviews, to a historic downtown with quaint shops and lovely restaurants. On the outskirts of town, you can find several larger stores (Lowe's, Wal-Mart, Food Lion, etc), Movie Theater, and even more restaurants. Driving down Long Beach Road will take you to Oak Island which offers miles and miles of beach front property along the Atlantic Ocean and beautiful beaches to relax on, as well as the Intracoastal Waterway. Other possibilities that you may want to consider are homes in St. James Plantation, The Landing, Indigo Plantation and the Smithville Woods/Marsh Creek subdivisions. They are all located in Southport with many properties having views of either the Cape Fear River or the Intracoastal Waterway. Helping people like you buy the property of your dreams is my pleasure. I can provide services that are above and beyond what you, as a buyer, can do. For example, I have a large amount of knowledge of the area, close contact with what is for sale and what are the best prices for the best properties, I also have a friendly support staff to help things move smoothly. These are only a few of the advantages.
