My name is Paul Buckman and I am a real estate agent and have worked with numerous clients in this area to help them raise their credit score and achieve their dream of home ownership. I will be glad to assist you and give you some tips and tricks to help you work towards increasing your credit score to a level that is acceptable to lenders. I also have lenders that I work with that specialize in showing first time home buyers and others how to build their credit and what home lenders look for. There are some things you can do that will make a difference in a very short time. Also, the credit score that you pull on Credit Karma will be different than what a mortgage proker will pull. I will be glad to talk to you about this in more detail and what the next steps are. Please contact me at 910-524-6834 if you, or anyone else reading this, is interested in working towards the goal of buying a home. You can also email me at Thanks! ... more

Hi Ginny! Compared to the actual number of homes in Waterford overall, there really are not that many resales. Currently, there are right around 20 resale homes and 8-10 new construction. With a community as large as Waterford - right around 1000 residents, this is a small percentage. In reference to the HOA dues. Currently Waterford's dues are right around 80/month if you are a single family home without any maintenance. In comparison with some of the other communities in the area, this is relatively low. Please check out our site for more information on Waterford and other communities in this area:

Hi Leah - Hawkeswater on the River is a great option for you in Leland. I have helped a few families find homes in this neighborhood and they love the neighborhood and their home. There are other great neighborhoods in the Leland area - it depends upon the price point, amenities that are important to you and the size/type of homesite you are looking for - larger with privacy, smaller with less maintenance, etc.

Here is a link to some of the neighborhoods in the Leland area. Let us know if we can help you in your search!

You need to realize that this corridor is the last to be developed on the entire eastern seaboard. Since I-40 was completed into Wilmington, the shift into this area has been almost warp speed. What used to be farm land & natural wet lands between Wilmington, NC, & Myrtle Beach, SC, is rapidly transforming into gated communities. We have watched how drainage ditches & retention ponds are molding swamps into 'waterfront properties' in so-called golf-course communities. If you check out your Google maps or Google earth for arial views, you will see what I am describing. Traffic patterns can be complicated, too, as there the Cape Fear & Brunswick Rivers separate us from Wilmington proper. Exponential population growth has far outstripped infrastructure, too. We have awesome neighborhoods, complete with elegant & stately homes, built over nicely drained natural wetlands & firmly packed landfills (Waterford aka Ditchford & Landfall aka Landfill). In Porter's Neck, don't be surprised to find odd-looking tubers popping up here &.there... Sweet Potatoes were once farmed there on a commercial scale. ... more

What is your question? If you're simply trying to promote it, I would suggest posting your listing to Facebook, Twitter, etc. Listing it here in the question section isn't going to get it much notice.

Sounds like a great listing.

Hi Bobpaster,

In the event you are still interested in buying, I would love the opportunity to earn your business.
Please call me at 910-352-0998 and we can go over the specifics of the property you are interested in, and what we'd need to do to buy it )or a home similar to it) (and for what price)!

We can also evaluate the prices of other properties that have sold, an compare and contrast.

Thanks a ton

That railroad line is a spur line to the Sunny Point Military Terminal in Southport. I'm approx. 3/4 mile away, and I don't hear it all that often. I wouldn't worry about it.
