I plan on retiring to Leland NC in a few years and was wondering if anyone knew a reputable builder in the area. I am purchasing land now to build on later. Also, if anyone knows of a builder to stay away from that would be helpful too. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks.

If you would be interested in a modular home builder, I can tell you anything you would want to know about our own experience. We had land, and looked into stick building but decided to go modular, so I can't tell you anything about builders, but could tell you everything about the experience with the modular builder and the particular modular company- we are in the Southern end of the county, though, Leland is maybe 25-30 minutes from here.

I know of one builder local to me who is VERY good and does good work, and no one EVER has a problem with him- but the caveat is he doesn't have his contractor's license. He works for less money because of this and from what I hear he's built a lot of high end houses for developments, and one of the banks here always finances construction loans for people who use him because they never have any trouble. Has done hundreds of homes. Though some people don't like the idea of their builder not being a licensed contractor, which I understand. What made us nervous was not his work at all- we were afraid of his not carrying accident insurance in case someone working with him got hurt.

If you ever think you may want to do modular feel free to DM me and I will tell you who we used and can put up some pictures, and can tell you everything good and bad...(overall it's been pretty good)

Thanks for the input Bluelily. I'm pretty sure the development I'm going to be in will not allow unlicensed contractors. Not sure about modular. Will have to check on that.
