Because our economy is a disaster in majority places and people are forced to sell very cheap. In certain areas we deal with an enormous amount of foreclosures. It is a buyer's market in Jacksonville area. Going south towards Wilmington market is getting better and I would say that Wilmington has a healthy market. Good luck!... more
Interesting question... my family and I are also purchasing a home on the intracoastal in Hampstead NC, some marsh close.... I imagine the bugs could be a problem
. Here on Long Island we also have had a lot of bugs...many people get properties sprayed to help......we have ticks on LI also. I have heard the bugs can be bad in the south. Hopefully someone from the area will answer.....do you have children attending the schools?? We have a 5 year old...... more
Hampstead is highly sought after for the schools. They are ranked high in the State rankings and many people close by move to Hampstead just to have their kids in the schools here. A good website to check is ncreportcard.com. I use this website for my clients to give them info about the schools. Check it out.
Please let me know if you have any questions about relocating to Hampstead or the surrounding areas. I live in Hampstead and know the area well. I am here to help!... more
I am a local North Carolinian and have lived in Coastal NC for over 35 yrs. I wouldn't consider living anywhere else! Even though we have had some cold snaps this winter, it never last long. We have enough of a change of season to keep things interesting. Hampstead is a wonderful place to live, work, raise a family, and have fun.The beaches are only minutes away and if you are into boating,kayaking, or paddle boarding, the water is beautiful and clean! There are many golf course in the area. Schools are highly sought after being ranked high in the State. You would feel right at home because there are so many people who move to this area from Long Island and the Northeast and Midwest areas. The weather being a big reason but lower taxes, good schools, and the slower "Southern" pace. Believe me, you adjust quickly! Come down for a visit and try us out. Please let me know what I can do to help you "get here as quick as you can!"... more
There are areas in Hampstead but the area has been booming and much of the farm land is being developed but there are some left. Although, all throughout Pender County there are plenty of options. Climate is great in NC so life is good here.... more
The property you view is vacant land on Ballast Point Road in Hampstead. In most cases, when an artist rendering is shown, there are floor plans for that home. If you would like to see the plans, let me know and I will be happy to send them to you. If you will respond directly to my email address which is email@example.com it will be easier to send the plans.
