First Time Home Buyers Guide - North Carolina Real Estate

Open the Door to Your First Home.

An important step in life is one’s first home purchase. First-time home buyers are usually younger and have a price range of $100,000 to $200,000. The Cape Fear region of Southeastern North Carolina has many opportunities for those looking to own a private residence.

The northern vicinity of Wilmington extending up through Hampstead is one of the best locations for new home buyers. The area on Highway 17 of Ogden is a great opportunity for purchasing a home under $200,000.

The rapidly expanding area known as Leland lying just over the Cape Fear River is a wonderful new home site for first time buyers. Several new developments in the $100,000-$200,000 price range are located in this area. Many other already existing neighborhoods are available for those looking to purchase in the Cape Fear region.

Another option the first-time home buyer might want to consider is a townhome, condominium or patio home. These low maintenance units offer yard service, community amenities and are much less expensive than a traditional single family home. Low maintenance homes can be found all over the Cape Fear region of Southeastern North Carolina.


"Our Intracoastal Realty agent made everything easier and was a pleasure to work with.  I have never purchased a home before and was not sure of everything that had to be done.  Certainly everything was handled to my complete satisfaction."
