Hello. Frequent oobx vacationer looking to purchase home or condo in coastal nc or sc to be used as 2nd home.

Have noticed what seem to be nice properties in Colington Harbour OBX. I believe this community is mostly year-round families and such but surely has it's fair share of investors/2nd home owners. What is Colington like? I thought I read somewhere that the full timers weren't too fond of the temporary residents? *(I can understand why, i guess)* FWIW, our home would not be a rental - just used by us, family, and close friends.

I've lived on the outerbanks for 15 years and trust me know one really cares anymore if your local or a tourist. Honestly the obx is more worried about taking care of tourist than locals anyway i lived in colington for three years. its a good place for older kids more teens than younger children. The obx is great place if you can afford to live here highly stress the word afford.
