The time to buy is NOW!

As a buyer, how many of you have said, “We’re just looking right now”, or, “We’re looking to buy in the summer” ? I bet most have. We get so caught up in day to day activities in our lives and keep pushing our never-ending to-do list aside. You want that new & updated home but just haven’t found the time to inquire about it. The time is now! Market in Hampstead is phenomenal! Homes are available on Monday, and by Wednesday they are under contract! With new construction going up, buyers are being more proactive and diligent in their home search, AND putting in offers quicker. Let’s not forget the fact of mortgage rates increasing. As of today, current mortgage rates are at 4.25% on a 30 year fixed loan. It has jumped in numbers since 2016 when we were at 3.5%. Rates change every single day, they move with the current economy, and based on the most recent election of President Donald Trump, rates are not expected to stay steady. Consumers need to lock in their rates without delay to get the best possible deal. Contact Coastal Realty Associates today to get started on your home buying process!

Hampstead NC Bypass

The time has finally come for Hampstead, NC residents to see a little less traffic on the main road of Hwy 17. NCDOT has approved for a bypass in Hampstead, NC to start in New Hanover County with an interchange of the U.S. 17 Wilmington Bypass and will extend into Sloop Point Road. Bypass is proposed to extend behind Topsail Schools and interchange at Hwy 210 as well. The $152.2 million project has current plans to undergo construction as soon as the year 2020. This part of the construction has been combined with another project in Hampstead which is to place a median in Hampstead. Some residents see this as a huge safety measure, while others find it as a waste of money. It’s no secret that Hwy 17 through Holly Ridge and Hampstead are overflowing with heavy traffic. A bypass could eliminate commute times, traffic, and reduce vehicular accidents along the popular Hwy 17. Other residents find that placing medians in Hampstead could potentially cause more accidents. Placing a median in Hampstead would mean no left-hand turns except only those at intersections with light signals, thus, forcing drivers to yield at intersections to practice proper U-Turns. Some residents feel this very thing could cause more accidents to occur. The state has agreed to fund the bypass in hopes of less traffic and accidents through the area! Right-of-way acquisition in Hampstead is to begin in May 2018. With new projects happening around here, Hampstead has quite the appeal to onlookers!

Residential boom hits Hampstead, NC

With rapid growth over the past few years, Hampstead North Carolina in Pender County is booming with residential development.  Pender County Board of Commissioners has approved a sewer line by Pluris Hampstead, LLC that will be built from Scotts Hill to Country Club Drive in Hampstead.  With sewer coming, commercial investors and businesses are looking to take advantage of the demand for new developments and shopping centers.  

Developers mike Pollak and David Greer have began development with partial infrastructure in place, houses are already going up and will be available for purchase in what is now Wyndwater and was the old Topsails Greens Golf Club. Wyndwater will offer new homes by local builders starting in the mid 200's. 

Just north on Hwy 17 is Cardinal Point is another new development which is in the master plan process and is proposed to offer 250 properties on what is now the site of a mobile home park. 

The residential boom hitting Hampstead is due to many factors. With the increase and demand in new homes builders are taking advantage of the demand with construction of new homes hitting the market in almost every community that offers vacant build able lots. The Topsail Schools are attracting families from across the country and prices are still affordable with most new homes starting in the 200's. Close proximity to Topsail Island and the abundance of water access communities has been a draw for many buyers. 

Waterfront properties are becoming harder to find and the deals and prices many seen in 2008-2010 are just not there anymore. Now is the time to buy. Prices in the Hampstead 28443 zip code increased more than any other zip code in southeastern North Carolina and the trend appears to be continuing into 2015.  Interest rates are low and the opportunity to find a new affordable home in Hampstead, NC is better than ever.
