Property Owner Reviews
Property Owner Reviews
Built in the late 1980's, Randy and Gary Allen of WLC Properties were the original real estate developers. Cannonsgate NC has been plagued over the years with rumors and lawsuits over sewer issues, political favors and then mortgage fraud by investors who bought during the early stages of development.
We're not sure, but we think the worst is behind Cannonsgate NC. Even though only a few dozen homes have been built to date, this Inner Banks marina community is debt free and is controlled by the HOA. As always, we suggest buyers seek legal advice and perform financial due diligence before purchasing property.
