Landfall Golf Rave

Posted by

In the most recent issue of Sporting News, Beth Ann Baldrey, their senior reporter who covers women’s golf, gave her top 10 list of memories from the NCAA women’s championships over the past decade.  Number 1 on that list was the tournament two years ago held at Landfall!  She noted positively the Dye course, where the championship was held, and indicated that the support from the community (Landfall and Wilmington) was exceptional and made for a great playing environment.

She ended by saying she really hopes the tournament returns, as soon as possible.  Congratulations to all who made the event so memorable, volunteers and spectators alike.  We can all hope for a return engagement.

Welcome to Amy!

Landfall Realty is pleased to let our followers know that Landfall Realty has a new agent in training, Amy Neathery.   Amy and her husband, who works at PPD, are Landfall residents.    With real estate activity being high all this year,  the time was right to bring in a fresh younger person to complement our  very experienced staff, to ensure that our customers get the attention needed at all times.  Amy is now learning all we can teach her about Landfall (and there is a great deal to grasp); we will let you know when she transitions to full active duty.  Please come by and meet Amy; we are sure you will agree she is a great addition.

What a Start!

Posted by

Landfall Realty has seen record numbers of sales for the January/February period, with 18 transactions closed or pending.  This exceeds the 2005 totals!  With sales traffic still healthy, and the traditional sales season just beginning, confidence is growing that 2012 will be a far better year than 2011, which was itself a far better year than 2010.

We also are pleased to see some new spec homes being built in Landfall.  LFR has already listed two new homes that have sold, and we are working with builders on several more about to be put under construction.  We have also paired several home site buyers with builders, evidence that the custom home construction business is also improving.

It has been a long time coming, but better times are finally here.  As a completed and essentially debt free community, we have long known that Landfall is perfectly positioned for a rebounding market.  Buyers are now confirming that belief.

Wilmington and the Cost of Living

A recent study from Chapel Hill examined the 25 largest cities in North Carolina to determine which community gave its tax payers the best value for the monies paid to their town in taxes, utilities and service fees.  Wilmington, NC was determined to be the best value of any city in the State.  This is likely one of the many reasons that Landfall, in Wilmington, remains one of the most desirable retirement destinations in the Carolina’s, and has been for more than 20 years.

Happy New Year!

From all the Landfall Realty team, a Happy New Year to all our friends and clients.  2011 was a great year for Landfall Realty, highlighted by our move to much improved office facilities  adjacent to the Drysdale gate.   Despite the general housing malaise nationally, 2011 was a healthy year for the company, and we owe that to the support of Landfall residents and our many clients, in Landfall and throughout the country.  We anticiapte that even more people in 2012 will discover why Landfall is the perfect place to live!
