My husband and I are visiting the NC coast for the first time next month. We are looking to buy a small NEW patio home on or near a golf course. Last year we purchased a new loft in downtown Charlotte (4th ward). That is the property we would likely sell to purchase the coastal home. We live in San Diego (both natives)and own two properties here. While we love our town, it is getting too crowded and the freeways and commute stink!
So here's the question--- where should we look?? We will be staying in Calabash at a "plantation" (odd word, with a very negative connotation tho I understand its historic meaning).
Anyone familiar with the Wilimington area? Places to look for new homes? We want to stay in the $200k -225k price range; we know we'll be getting a small property, which is fine. We are not interested in anything south of Calabash, nor north of Wilmington.
We love North Carolina. What a great state! Though we are died-in-the-wool liberals, we feel completely at home in this most red of states. And frankly, NC seems to have a far better environmental record than CA.
Any advice is welcome.
