Wow of a Golf Course real estate buy | Buyer pays $660,000 for golf course, clubhouse |

Unknown buyer pays $660,000 for golf course, clubhouse | StarNewsOnline.com.

In follow up to previous post about the Brick Landing Auction, a lucky buyer bought the golf course and clubhouse for $660,000.  The 2007 tax value was 7 million and appraised for 8.5 million in 2010.  There was only one final bid on the 125 acre property.  After sitting vacant for a year, hopefully the new buyer can breathe some fresh air into the project.  There are other commercial and residential properties that can be bought for under tax value.  Start your Wilmington NC real estate search here.  www.cbbaker.com.  Let us help you.
