In Search of Beach Life and Island Living? Topsail Island, North Carolina Is Perfect for You!
Posted On Tuesday, January 20, 2015
Do you spend your days dreaming of your next beach vacation? Do you long for the feeling of sand between your toes and gentle coastal breezes against your skin? Do you find cold, snowy winters with their unending stretches of gray days and freezing temperatures downright depressing? Do you crave the smell of the salty sea air and the rhythmic lullaby of the tide? Do you prefer a laid-back lifestyle over the hustle and bustle of city life day in and day out? Are you happiest when surrounded by sun, sand and surf?
If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, you should really consider a permanent vacation on North Carolina's Topsail Island. You sound like the perfect candidate!
Many people think of Topsail Island as a summer beach vacation destination, but it's so much more than that. It's also a wonderful place to relocate or retire to if you enjoy a quintessential beach lifestyle. Shopping, restaurants and attractions are all part of the package.
In addition to gorgeous Carolina beaches, blazing coastal sunrises and sunsets, sparkling Treasure Coast waters and a temperate Southern climate, there are several other reasons that make Topsail Island a great relocation or retirement destination. Want to know what they are? Read on, beach lovers.
Location, location, locationThey say real estate is all about location, and we find that to be true. Topsail Island happens to be ideally situated so that is allows for a quieter, more secluded beach experience than other East Coast beaches while also being close and convenient to city life and the amenities found there. Both Jacksonsville, NC and Wilmington, NC are within 30 miles of Topsail Island. Both cities are an easy drive from the island and close enough to work or visit there on a daily basis if desired.
Affordable real estateTopsail Island offers a wide range of real estate options within a reasonable price range. Condos can be found starting around the $100,000 mark and island homes begin around $250,000 and continue upward. Of course those are just ballpark figures, but we think you'll find that there are some pretty amazing and affordable options here, particularly when it comes to beachfront and beach view properties on some of North Carolina's most pristine beaches. Can't really put a price tag on that, can you?
Safe, family-friendly surroundingsTopsail Island is proud of its safe, family-friendly atmosphere and its welcoming local community. We take pride in our towns and value the relationships that are built and established here. You simply won't have the worries you'd have at busier beaches and other tourist destinations.
Southern hospitality & small-town charmYou're in North Carolina, so you can expect Southern hospitality complemented by the quaint charm of our seaside towns. Topsail Island has a history and maritime tradition all its own. The more you get to know it; the more you'll come to love it. We speak from experience!
A good investment in your present & futureIf you're not ready for a permanent move or not at the stage of life where you're even thinking about retiring, you always have the option of investing in a vacation home on Topsail Island. If you're already spending a portion of your time on the island anyway, why not take the next step and consider purchasing a beach investment property? Not only will you benefit from having a beach house of your very own to use when you like and share with your family and friends, you'll also have the option to rent it out during the times when you're not there. It's a great investment where you reap the benefits both now and later.
