77 www.wrightsvillebeachmagazine.com WBM HARBOR ISLAND Twenty-nine of Wrightsville’s sales were on Harbor Island; of these eight were single-family homes, with nine sound front, five with boat docks and two additional offering water views. The No. 2 sale on Harbor Island, and the No. 7 sale in the town, was June’s $2.15 million new construc-tion presale at No. 6 Island Drive. This 3,245sf home offered 4 bed-rooms and 4 baths, sound front on Motts Channel on deep water, no wake zone, with boat dock. The buyers have become year-round residents. “What I look at is how many homes are available for sale on Wrightsville Beach and then segment it,” Vance Young says. “Right now there are a fair number of oceanfront condos. That market is a little bit top heavy, but when you start to talk about single-family either water access on the ocean or on the sound, they’re very few and far between. There are not that many single-family second row, third row type houses. The inventory at Wrightsville — it won’t take much to move the meter a lot, and the same is true at Landfall.” Six sound front high-rise residential condos sold at Seapath Towers. Eight Harbor Island condo/town-houses in a planned unit develop-ment were sold. Six were at Channel Walk, Lees Cut and Shoreline; two were at Lookout Harbor. “Despite the rancor of an acri-monious and distracting election year, the mood of the buyers in 2016 suggested a level of optimism in the economy. In talking with our clients it becomes apparent that many of their businesses are profitable. Certainly this translates to more confidence in purchas-ing a second home,” Randall J. Williams says.
