Due to their proximity to the water and their exclusive atmospheres, Wrightsville Beach and Figure Eight Island, N.C., are two of the most expensive real estate markets on North Carolina's southern coast. Properties don't come up for sale much on either of the islands, and when they do they are pricey and highly sought-after.
For anyone who hopes to retire or relocate to, or to buy a vacation home in, the Wrightsville Beach or Figure Eight Island areas, we give you a feel for the residential properties on the islands.
We also give you listings of local real estate companies and agents, with helpful information and links for finding the one who will best meet your real estate needs. This area has a wealth of reputable agents and we offer our recommendations with confidence.
Because so much of the appeal of the Wrightsville Beach area is water-related, in this section you’ll find our Marinas section, which will help you decide where to dock the boat and meet like-minded boating friends.
Retirees will find a section just for them, including information on relocating, getting involved in the community and staying physically active. For the later retirement years, we offer information on getting help from the community as well as assisted living facilities.
