Neighborhoods and Developments

Surf City

Many of the properties on Topsail Island are second homes or investment properties. Properties most in demand are the large oceanfront homes and other waterfront locations. You can expect to pay an average of $800,000 to $1 million for a single-family, oceanfront home. Land is limited on this barrier island, and many retirees and new families relocating to the area often choose to live on the mainland, which is still close enough to the beach to feel like they are on a lifelong vacation.

There are no apartment communities in the greater Topsail area. The closest to be found is in Hampstead.  For long term rentals, your best bet is to contact real estate companies in the area to find out what single family housing is available.  If you are going to be here over the winter, note that many of the condominiums, houses and cottages on summer rental programs can be rented over the winter months at very reasonable rates.
