Rip Current Awareness Week June 3-9 | Wilmington NC real estate

To all of our visitors to the Wilmington NC area, WELCOME!  Please enjoy yourselves in our wonderful town.  Our beaches are awesome and clean.  The water is crystal clear.  When you are swimming, be aware of rip currents.  If you see sand being churned up and heading in a line away from the beach, then you are looking at a rip current.

If you see any real estate that your are interested in knowing what the price is, please feel free to use our mobile site.  Mobile.cbbaker.com will let you put in the address and you will be able to pull up the information from our local mls.  Enjoy…. Baker, Wayne & Associates

Per the NOAA site:

Why Rip Currents Form
As waves travel from deep to shallow water, they will break near the shoreline. When waves break strongly in some locations and weakly in others, this can cause circulation cells which are seen as rip currents: narrow, fast-moving belts of water traveling offshore.   (more info)
 
Why Rip Currents are Dangerous
Rip currents are the leading surf hazard for all beachgoers. They are particularly dangerous for weak or non-swimmers. Rip current speeds are typically 1-2 feet per second. However, speeds as high as 8 feet per second have been measured–this is faster than an Olympic swimmer can sprint! Thus, rip currents can sweep even the strongest swimmer out to sea.
 
Over 100 drownings due to rip currents occur every year in the United States. More than 80% of water rescues on surf beaches are due to rip currents.

Rip currents can occur at any surf beach with breaking waves, including the Great Lakes.  Read rest of story here….

Be Proactive | IDENTITY THEFT: Protect your identity and your credit | Wilmington NC real estate

As the information super-highway expands, thieves have more and more opportunities to steal your financial identity. The Federal Trade Commission reports that as many as half a million Americans have their identities stolen annually–costing them money and affecting their credit ratings.

Identity thieves make their money by co-opting your name, Social Security number, credit card number, or other piece of your personal information for their own use. Below are just a few of the ways the identity thieves operate, according to the FTC:

  • They open a new credit card account, using your name, date of birth, and Social Security number. When they use the credit card and don’t pay the bills, the delinquent account is reported on your credit report.
  • They call your credit card issuer and, pretending to be you, change the mailing address on your credit card account. Then, your imposter runs up charges on your account. Because your bills are being sent to the new address, you may not immediately realize there’s a problem.
  • They establish cellular phone service in your name.
  • They open a bank account in your name and write bad checks on that account.

Fortunately, there are a number of ways you can protect yourself from identity theft, as follows:

  • Know who you’re talking to. Before you reveal any personally identifying information, find out how it will be used and whether it will be shared with others.
  • Pay attention to your billing cycles. Follow up with creditors if your bills don’t arrive on time. A missing credit-card bill could mean an identity thief has taken over your credit-card account and changed your billing address to cover his tracks.
  • Guard your mail from theft. Deposit outgoing mail in post-office collection boxes or at your local post office, not in your own mailbox for your carrier to pick up.
  • Put passwords on your credit card, bank and phone accounts. Avoid using easily available information such as your mother’s maiden name, your birth date or your phone number.
  • Minimize the identification information and the number of cards you carry to what you’ll actually need. Don’t carry your social security card-memorize the number and store the card in a secure place.
  • Do not give out personal information on the phone, through the mail or over the Internet unless you have initiated the contact and know who you’re dealing with.
  • Keep items with personal information in a safe place. To thwart an identity thief who may pick through your trash to capture your personal information, tear or shred your charge receipts, copies of credit applications, and other financial statements.

Positve News | 8th Annual Economic Outlook Conference UNCW | Wilmington NC real estate

UNCW economists say that Wilmington may outperform state, nation | Business | South College News.

The 8th Annual Economic Outlook Conference was held at UNCW today and the news is generally positive for the Wilmington NC Tri County area. According to WECT, the economists said that New Hanover, Pender and Brunswick Counties are forecast to grow 2.2% in 2012 slightly ahead of the NC forecast of 1.7% and the nation forecast of 1.6%.

The announcement was made by “William Hall — a professor of economics and senior economist with the Swain Center for Business and Economic Services in UNCW’s Cameron School of Business—announced the predictions along with collaboration from Ravija Badarinathi — a professor of statistics in the UNCW Department of Information Systems and Operations Management.” per WECT.

Residental real estate has been stabalizing and the the retail sales have come back and continue to grow.  For a full report on the Economic Outlook, please read more here…  Page 30 will be the start of the local Wilmington NC statistics.

Wilmington NC does it again | Wilmington ranked on Best Towns list

Wilmington ranked on Best Towns list – Shore Lines – Wilmington Star News – Wilmington, NC – Archive.

WE LOVE OUR TOWN!    Wilmington NC makes another list. 

Outside Magazine ranked Wilmington among a list of Best Towns – “the finest places you’d ever want to call home.”

They call the River City the “Next Big Thing”.  Here are some of the other things they said about our community in their article in the October issue of Outside Magazine….  

“Similar to Charleston: southern charm, a 300-year-old harbor, ample seafood. But what sets Wilmington (pop. 106,500) apart from its genteel South Carolina neighbor is an economy in overdrive—not long ago, it was the second-fastest-growing economy in the U.S. Thanks to EUE Screen Gems, it’s also home to the largest motion-picture and television studio outside California. (The local film industry employs some 800 people.) Situated where the Cape Fear River meets the Atlantic, the former military port’s recreation options are mostly water-based—sea-kayaking, sailing, deap-sea fishing—and the biggest party of the year is, naturally, Riverfest, a frenzy of vendors, fireworks, music, athletic competitions, and invading pirates.”

Just last week Wilmington NC made another list – “America’s Most Fun and Affordable Cities by Bloomberg Businessweek.  Let us share Wilmington NC with you.  Please visit www.cbbaker.com for news about Wilmington and to search all Wilmington NC real estate.
