Kill Devil Hills - questions for locals




I am retiring at end of August and looking at buying at Oyster Pointe condos. Does anyone know if it has flooded in this area this week?

What bank do you use and why?

Thanks.

I live at Oyster Pointe. We got water from the sound behind the complex, up to some of the buildings but no damage that I know about. It has totally receded with minimal cleanup which has been the case since I've been here. I can't recommend a bank. All my transaction are online so I have no opinion about the local branch.

In 2011 Irene hit us from the west side and there was water around some of the buildings there. That area flooding is very unusual, but it can happen every 25-50 years or so.

Was curious what the HOA fees are there? My son is looking for a place in KDH. Thanks!

I know the gal really well who is selling her unit in Oyster Point. During Sandy, I believe it was, she lived in another part of the complex and had water up to the top of the steps but none got in her unit. That was the highest water either of us remembered seeing back there, and everybody did need to move their cars before the Sound rose. That was the highest Soundside flooding I have seen in my will-be-42 years of living here come this May.

She is leaving the area which is why she is selling her unit.

Re bank...

We have a longtime relationship with a particular banker and have followed her as the branch she worked for has sold, consolidated, whatever. That said, we now bank with Towne Bank, which purchased Monarch and OBX Bank was a part of the Monarch family of banks. The folks who started OBX Bank were longtime bankers here, dating all the way back to Planters Banks, which then became PNC. As that bank became less personal, those bankers began OBX Bank. We have followed them through the years. Others likely have similar stories with other banks here.
