Hi all
My wife and I want to move to NC some where close to Wilmington *like within 40 miles* any suggestions. Facts of what we want.
1. Our daughter lives in Wilmington but she wants us to buy a house that we really can't afford. Our daughter DOES want us to move there, surprising LOL
2. I am 100% disabled veteran and my husband is disabled, too.
3. I want to live in a nice quite and safe neighborhood.
4. I need to be somewhat near a Veterans Administrative Hospital or outpatient clinic.
5. What are the pros and cons of a subdivision? We have actually never really heard of a subdivisions which doesn't make us hicks. LOL
Thanks in advance for the read and I hope someone has the time to help us.

dreamstar72,
My heart skipped a beat after reading your post. I own a real estate agency in Morehead City-Well out of the area in which you are looking to purchase. So I can not help you with your property search in the Wilmington area.

But I just had to respond and at least say thank you for your service to our country. It means the world to me as it does for most Americans. Thank You!!! If I can help in anyway please let me know.

I can answer your subdivision question. Subdivisions are communties that have been legally established. A subdivision will have its own set of rules which are usually refered to as, "restrictive covenants".
The subdivision will elect its own officers to oversee, enforce, change, add, amend those rules.

The intent of the restritive covenants is to maintain the integrity of the community (subdivision) for which it was written.

Some subdivisions have very strict rules that are strictly enforced. Some quite the opposite.
All restrictive covenants are recorded in the deeds office and are avilable to the public. I always get a copy of them before any of our buyer clients make an offer.

I would highly encourage you to contract a Buyer's Broker for your property search. They will be legally obligated to put your interest first, offer expertise, knowledge and insight to the area and the buying process, and on average save the buyer more money than the unrepresented buyer.
Take Care & God Bless You,
Bill

Jacksonville is 53 miles from the heart of Wilmington. Just on the other side of Jacksonville route 24 runs down to Swansboro. It's a very military friendly area and the prices are generally very reasonable.

There are plenty of one level homes and even a few accessible ones. There are plenty of quiet safe neighborhoods.

Good luck finding something. I wish I knew the communities better between Wilmington and Jacksonville so I could suggest something for you. It is just out of my area of expertise.

Here is a list of VA facilities in NC (http://vfwwebcom.org/nc/VAHospitals - broken link).

I think the closest VA is in Fayetteville which is about 100 miles away. There was talk about them opening up a small satilite sation some where near the hospital. Wilminton is beautiful but if you want a nice family quiet neighborhood look in Hampstead. Less traffic 10 from a quiet beach (Surf City) 20 minutes from Camo LeJune Base. good luck.
