Southport, North Carolina Living

With around 4,500 people living in Southport, North Carolina, you might be shocked at how the city with the small-town feel can attract some many visitors that eventually turn into full time residents!

Mother nature does a lot of favors for Southport with beautiful trees, waterfront views, and wildlife.

With a consistent ranking in the top running for best places to live, it is no surprise to the residents of Southport that their city is one of the best places to live in North Carolina and one of the safest as well.

The city is located in Brunswick County, just south of Wilmington. The City of Southport, NC received its name in 1887 in hopes to rebrand it from Smithville to Southport, to allow for it to become a shipping port for the region which of course never happed! It is a great place to relocate because although it is a smaller town, there is always something to do in Southport. From the fine dining and shopping downtown, or the parks and trails in the area. 

One of the excellent parts about Southport is being able to witness the growth the town is experiencing. A little town with 2,300 people in 1990 is now home to just over 4,500 residents and poised to experience more growth. There’s a reason why the population has grown over so slowly over the years, people do not want to let the cat out of the bag about how great it really is living here!

Southport Real Estate Market

Understanding what is going on in the local real estate market is essential. Southport Oak Island Realty Group releases monthly columns that give users the ability to obtain important information in an easily accessible manner. We use infographics and videos to display real estate trends. Informed people make informed decisions whether they are buying or selling property. 

As a part of Brunswick County and the greater Wilmington area, Southport housing trends move similarly to its surrounding cities. If you want hyper-local reports based on neighborhoods, we are happy to go over those statistics with you; it makes sense that you would like to know them, especially if you’re planning to sell your house.

Buying a House

If you’re searching to buy a home in Southport, you will want to know as much information as possible about the community and the process of buying a house. Whether you’re shopping for a home in a luxury community or a new construction home, working with a professional Realtor® who knows the area will save you thousands of dollars and a lot of unnecessary headaches.

The real estate in Southport sells fast, especially when it’s a great deal, so you’ll need to ensure a lender has prequalified you before you are serious about buying a home. A strong Realtor® will ensure you find the home of your dreams, and part of that process is knowing what you can afford and showing the sellers that you came to buy with a pre-qualification letter.

Southport Oak Island Realty Group has long been known as having the “Best Buyer’s Agents” in the area.

We DO NOT work for new construction builders and DO NOT do anything that is not the RIGHT THING for our clients!

We WORK for YOU and DO NOT do anything that is not the RIGHT THING for our clients!

While some may think this is standard business practice in the North Carolina Real Estate Industry, unfortunately it is not…

As a standard practice at Southport Oak Island Realty Group, our focus is SOLELY on YOU, THE CONSUMER! We hold the value of friendship and doing the right thing above profits, unlike many of our colleagues. While we do not like to talk about it, the National “Big Brands” have changed the the industry for the worse, putting Real Estate Agents in an unfortunate position of fighting for clientele and the end result is chasing or steering consumers towards the homes for sale or deals with the most return for them as Real Estate Agents, not YOU the buyer. If you have time please read through our About Us page. It explains our values as North Carolina Buyer’s Agents and our overall core values.

If you are ready to dive into the buying process and looking at houses please reach out to one of our Southport North Carolina or Southport North Carolina Top Buyer’s Agents today!

Selling a House

Part of what separates Southport Oak Island Realty Group from other brokerages is our commitment to understanding technology and buyer personas. If we are selling a home in a luxury community, we ensure our marketing dollars are targeted towards executives who may be relocating vs. young professionals. If you want to sell your home, interview more than one Real Estate Agent for the job. Even if you interview us first, we want you to question others. Understanding what professionals in the industry will go a long way in making the right decision for you.


Buying or selling luxury real estate requires a top local Realtor®. The fact that a couple of percentage points can be the difference between tens of thousands of dollars, it’s an important decision to find the best Realtor® for the job. Luxury real estate comes with added benefits thanks to the price point whether it’s a golfing community or a neighborhood filled with amenities such as pools, tennis courts, and parks.

New Construction

One of the fastest growing cities in the Brunswick County area, an Southport developer recently spent 11 million dollars to build new communities. Bella Casa is one of the top new communities in Southport that offers new construction homes for sale. Some of the best builders in Southport are on the job, trying to keep up with the population growth. If you live in Southport, you’re aware that one day there is land the next day, there is a brand new development, whether it’s homes or commercial properties.
