by Desiree Whalen. Hi everyone,I’ve added a new showcase page to the site today, continuing with my focus on homes for sale in Wrightsville Beach this week. The new page highlights homes for sale along South Lumina Avenue, which runs between the bridge at Causeway Drive at its north end, and Jack Parker Boulevard at its south end. Homes along this stretch of Lumina Avenue enjoy a more relaxed atmosphere during the summer months, as the south end sees less tourist traffic than the road along the northern end of the island, yet residents are still close to everything the island has to offer in terms of shopping, dining, and entertainment.

It used to be you could only get to Wrightsville Beach by water. Today you can use the bridge, but the island retains its village-like feel and wonderful sense of remove from everyday cares. A clean, uncluttered stretch of white sand and sparkling water just begs for swimming, sunbathing, beachcombing, and fishing. The athletic at heart can take on the Loop, a fitness trail that circles the inner island. Boaters launch from full-service marinas, and history buffs soak up the local museum and narrated scenic cruises along the Intracoastal Waterway. Visitors to Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, can rest a little easier knowing they have the Wrightsville Beach Ocean Rescue Squad watching over them. Recognized as an advanced agency by the US Lifesaving Association, team members are highly...

Certain upgrades and renovations pay dividends when it comes time to sell, and you often can recoup the money you’ve invested in the upgrade. There are exceptions, however. And one stands head and shoulders above the rest (or should I say below) when it comes to return on investment: The home office. Surprised? It may seem like a home office would be a boon for your home at sale time, especially considering the number of people who telecommute and work online. But the fact of the matter is, a home office seldom r...

Condo values in Wrightsville Beach NC real estate Increase   It has been interesting to see how sold prices (market values) have gone up for Wrightsville Beach condos in North Carolina.  Other variables are pretty stable except that inventory is much lower. ddd Sellers in the market are listing their homes for less when you include single family homes in the Wrightsville Beach real estate market.

Help keep Wrightsville Beach NC barefoot friendly A stroll on the beach shouldn't involve stepping on or around trash left by others, but all too often it does.  Cans, plastic bags, cigarette butts, wrappers, dirty diapers, bottles, pizza boxes -- you name it, someone has left it on a beach.  Wrightsville Beach NC beach-goers do better than many I've seen and we take great pride in that.  Unfortunately, there's always room for improvement.  In its 5th year, The Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project, brings together Barefoot Wines, Surfrider Foundation and local volunteers for a Nationwide tour of 20 beach cleanups and on Saturday, July 23, 2011 they're stopping in Wrightsville Beach NC!  Join them on the beach at Stone Street and Causeway from 9a ~ 11a and help keep Wrightsville Beach NC b...

7th Annual Reef/Sweetwater Pro-Am Surf Fest is in full swing! What a beautiful evening we had last night in Wrightsville Beach NC.  After weeks of sweltering temps and high humidty we've had a reprieve and actually been below normal.  I just had to take advantage of the ocean breeze and mild temperatures with a stroll on the beach.  I stopped by to watch some of the surfers practicing their skills for the 7th Annual Reef/Sweetwater Pro-Am Surf Fest.  It looked like a storm might be coming in, but nope, we just had some choppy water and a strong breeze.  These kids were awesome and I hope to get down there again today to see some of the competition.   Don't forget the art and music festival at Wrightsville Beach Park today from 4p ~ 9:30p! If you're ready to buy a home in Wrightsville Be...
