Wheelchair friendly Beaches in North Carolina | Oak Island

By
Real Estate Agent with (owner) JustNewListings.com Realty, Inc.

hey everybody i'm jay with wilmington-real-estate.com.

so a few months ago I


was showing vacation rental properties


that's a property people plan on buying


they'll use it themselves one or two


weeks a year and rented out the rest of


the year with the right downpayment it


can pay for itself very well and be

quite lucrative


a typical vacation rental for example an


example might be four hundred thousand

used to close four seven hundred


thousand so we're still far below the

carolina beach wheelchair oak island ada
peaks for what it's worth and the issue


on the table for this family was you had


a relative with a disability and a

wheelchair so we were looking for a be a


compliant oceanfront homes for sale or


Carolina beach homes for sale in North Carolina


ad a North Carolina Ocean View homes etc


so we started looking for elevator homes


number one on all the beaches but what


we were finding is still even with the


elevator homes you had piers you had


Beth decks and balconies to walk out on


with stairs and the homes were not gonna


be accessible for the wheelchair home so


because of my experience I was familiar


with a nuance of Oak Island real estate and that is

where the streets are the cross streets

 


that connect to beach driving speech in


West Beach let me zoom in and zoom out


here okay a lot of the Oklahoma streets


where you have these streets here at


43rd 40th 46 you know approximately


every three or four blocks at Oak Island


they usually go directly out to the


beach without stairs without an obstacle

to a wheelchair so if you can find a


home in Oak Island pretty near one of

these

sections with an elevator all of a


sudden you have a home with a really


good chance of being a ADA compliant for

a beach home for sale in North Carolina

and South Oak Island from my experience


on mostly eight different beaches Oak


Island is the most friendly to people


with disabilities in wheelchairs I would


call it the most ADA complaint


Beach overall and this home right here

is an example it has an elevator it's a


vertical duplex meaning there's one


living level and then another living


level each one has its own kitchen etc

and one of them was 88 compliant and

right here was the place where you could

just go straight out with the wheelchair


a few houses down Oak Island does


actually have what we call beach field


chairs they've got this big great wheels


on them and they either loan them out or


rent them out I'm not sure which and


they take pride and offering these


wheelchairs to the public

throughout the summer I've seen them at


Carolina Beach too but they force the


challenge at Carolina beaches most of


the oceanfront homes require stairs to

71
00:03:29,489 --> 00:03:33,299
get in and out so you'd have to go to

72
00:03:30,989 --> 00:03:35,640
the boardwalk area with its ramps they

73
00:03:33,299 --> 00:03:37,970
Carolina Beach to pull that off oh god I

74
00:03:35,640 --> 00:03:40,350
know you have tons of these direct

75
00:03:37,970 --> 00:03:42,450
areas that are direct directly out to

76
00:03:40,350 --> 00:03:44,549
the beach with no stairs so I hope that

77
00:03:42,450 --> 00:03:46,410
helps some of you guys the port are

78
00:03:44,549 --> 00:03:48,890
helping you find a beach home in North

79
00:03:46,410 --> 00:03:48,890
Carolina
