Think Reverse Floor Plan When Buying Ocean View Real Estate

Reverse Floor Plans Have Big +s For Ocean Views

Inverted floor plan Kure beach

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pasted:  Article originally appeared at my http://kure-beach-homes.com site on inverted floor plans or reverse floor plans.

After spending a lot of time with some out of town buyers, we were looking mostly at homes

400,000 to 500,000 with ocean views in Carolina and Kure beach and Oak Island. We trotted

up to Surf City just to peak at it and we hightailed it back down here. And in this process, you

know I was just watching my clients go through the processing, what they like and did not like.

I thought it was worth putting in video in blog format and educating you the consumer of what

you should keep in mind when it comes to finding a home, here with an ocean view. And if

you’re close between several homes, which one should you pick based on this issue.
