Fall Landfall Real Estate Update Forum

Posted by

As requested by a number of attendees at Landfall Realty’s spring real estate forum, I will host a fall followup at the Nicklaus Clubhouse at Country Club of Landfall at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, October 21st.  I will update Landfall transactions for the year, and comment upon regional and national real estate trends and their impact on Wilmington and Landfall.  Again, questions will be welcome, and there were many good ones last session.   I look forward to seeing you at the forum.   This time, the bar will be open at the Club following the gathering, so if the news is not to your liking, a drink can be purchased.

July 4th Celebration was a BLAST!!

Posted by

002_2Once again, the Country Club of Landfall pulled off another wonderful July 3rd cook-out and fireworks display!  We had two tables of ten in the dining room with all of our neighbors and their children.  The rooms were festive and patriotic.  There were many buffet stations set up and the food was the best ever.  There were ribs, steak, chicken, pasta, salad and more.  They even had a children’s buffet with mac & cheese, chicken fingers and French fries.  And of course they had a full dessert table!!

001_1     The fireworks were amazing and seemed to last forever!

     It’s one party of the year that you never want to miss, as it is one of the best in Wilmington NC.  

     It’s a great way to see all of your fellow Landfall property owning friends.

Landfall Advantages

Posted by

The bankruptcy this week of Crescent Resources LLC, one of the best of the high end real estate developers in the southeast and southwest, serves as a vivid reminder of how fortunate Landfall NC property owners are.  In these very difficult economic times,  living in an established community, where all the amenities are in place, where the community is mature, and where there is a stable association with a sufficient dues base to maintain the assets, is truly a blessing. 

Crescent is owned by Duke Energy and Morgan Stanley Real Estate Funds, so deep pockets do not make developing communities immune.   The list of developers of high quality projects that have either filed or have had bank intervention is  long, including companies owned in whole or in part by Bobby Ginn, Lyle Anderson and the Sandlers–a list of the “who’s who” of the upper end real estate developers just a year or so ago.

I wish for all of these companies and their communities a sound recovery, but their fate highlights the fact that Landfall is a special place.  Our problem of a slow market, while not ideal, is a problem thousands of home owners in other communities would love to face.    Our Landfall Realty sales associates emphasis to our prospects  the advantages of Landfall to those seeking a vibrant community that has no big “what ifs” getting in the way of a great lifestsyle.

Landfall Real Estate Forum

Posted by

In February, Landfall Realty hosted a property owner forum where I presented information regarding the real estate economy  generally, with its impact on Landfall real estate in particular.   I appreciate the several attendees who later contacted me to let me know how imformative they found the program.   Some of the owners that attended have asked for an update, and others, not in attendance, have requested another forum.  We are tentatively thinking of scheduling another get together in July.   As always, questions will be welcome.  If you have any suggestions as to what information would be of value to you, let me know.   After the first gathering, several attendees offered to buy me a drink, but the club bar was closed.  We will try to pick a day in July where that will not be a problem.
