Here is a great opportunity to own a home in Wrightsville Beach that has two identical 3 bedroom units. They can be your family home with lots of room for family and guests, or you could live in one unit and rent the other or you could rent both units as an investment property with long term or short term vacation renters. You have a short walk on the ocean side of N. Channel to beach access 14, to Johnny Mercer pier, the loop and downtown WB for shopping and restaurants. One of the most valued parts of owning on WB is having your own parking. In this case you have a minimum of 4 places and up to 5 or 6 for each unit. And, even better you get two town parking passes for each unit that you can use to your advantage. Both units have attractive open living, dining and kitchen set ups and easy access to wrap around outdoor porches. The main bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and there are in total two and one half baths. And you are in the bubble that includes Landfall with Mayfaire and the Forum restaurants and great shopping. Plus you are only 20 minutes from the airport and downtown Wilmington. These double units do not come up very often. Don't miss out! (Upper unit is rented until 5/15/23.

A good threshold for rental property investment is the 1% Rule (source). It states that you should only invest in rental property if you are reasonably confident that the property can rent for 1% of the sale price per month.

We’ve included that assumption here. It is critical that the group validate pricing, rental history, and future rental projections of any specific property before proceeding with a purchase. You can explore rental incomes of any property with this free estimation tool at Rabbu.com.
