The Crystal Coast – It’s All About Lifestyle
The Crystal Coast describes the communities along our section of the North Carolina mainland shore and the barrier islands just off the coast. Both are havens for people who enjoy coastal living and are looking for a little bit of heaven to use as a second home or vacation home, or a great place to retire.
The lifestyle choices are varied and center around the water. Between the mainland coast and Bogue Banks Island, you’ll find Bogue Sound. It is at most three miles wide and 25 miles long. It offers shallow, calm water that is excellent for sports such as swimming and kayaking.
On the other side of the Bogue Banks, is the Atlantic Ocean. Along its shores, you’ll find places to bask in the sun, meet the challenge of the waves, and think about the adventures, like big-game fishing and scuba diving, that lie just offshore. Many of the East Coast’s best dive boat and fishing captains live right here. You’ll also have access to guided kayak and stand-up paddling tours, as well as the unspoiled beauty of Cape Lookout National Seashore – just a short ferry or boat ride away.
The Crystal Coast gives you amazing natural beauty, and a variety of communities that offer everything from fine dining and fun local events to historic homes and a true step back in time to a simpler lifestyle.
The REALTORS® who make up the Star Team have been in love with the Crystal Coast for most of their lives. They’re dedicated to helping others join the family of people who find that the Crystal Coast is the perfect place to live, play or invest.
If you’re planning to buy or sell property on the Crystal Coast, we’d be happy to put our expertise to work for you.
If You're Buying...
If you’re familiar with the area, you may already have a favorite community. If you’re not familiar with everything the Crystal Coast has to offer, you’ll need to work with REALTORS® like us who have in-depth knowledge of the varying locations and the local real estate market.
There are eleven regions along the Crystal Coast, and it’s about a two-hour drive from one end to the other. So, you’ll want to buy near the things you truly enjoy.
For example, Emerald Isle is on Bogue Banks Island, and some homes there have views of Bogue Sound on one side and the Atlantic on the other. In Morehead City, you’ll find a vibrant waterside town with shops, events and live entertainment close at hand. If you are looking for a slower pace, almost taking a step back in time, Down East may be the perfect location for you.
We can help you choose the perfect area for your lifestyle and the perfect home for your needs.
If You’re Buying a Vacation Home or Making an Investment...
If you’re buying a vacation home and you’d like to rent it when you’re not using it yourself, you’ll want to work with REALTORS® like us who understand the rental market in the area. We can help you find the homes that will be in high demand as vacation rentals. We’re also experts at managing your property to make sure you get the return you’re looking for while protecting your investment.
We can easily help you do the calculations to determine how you can get the right rental income to “purchase” your home. And, if you’re an investor looking for a 1031 exchange, you’ll get the professional guidance that will make your investment work hard for you.
If You’re Selling...
When you’re ready to sell your home on the Crystal Coast, whether you’re a full-time resident or a second-home owner, you want to sell for top dollar in the shortest amount of time possible. To accomplish that, you need to work with REALTORS® who have in-depth knowledge of the market and can:
- Price the property right the first time
- Target the right buyers
- Expose your home to a large number of buyers
Our work with people renting vacation property puts us in touch with a range of visitors who may eventually decide to buy their own vacation or second home in the area. In other words, we have great insight into the buyers pipeline. In addition, we work with a large group of local residents who plan to move up or downsize. Getting the right exposure for your Crystal Coast home for sale is no problem!
If you’re a second-home owner, you have additional needs because you don’t live here full-time. You’ll need to work with REALTORS® like us who know the real estate market and the rental market, and who can work with you long-distance, just as if you were living down the street. We appreciate the responsibility we take on when we sell a home for an out-of-town homeowner, and we take that responsibility very seriously.
We have established a record of accomplishment in managing successful home sale transactions, and we can do the same for you. If you’re thinking of buying or selling on the Crystal Coast, work with the local experts on The Star Team.
