However, I'm not "married" to the idea of just the southeast if there's value out there. Our two priorities are 2 or 3 acres and being as close to the ocean as possible.

We grew up in RI and was always 15 minutes from the ocean....we're looking to replicate that in a warmer climate
I will be watching this thread closely. This is was I am looking for in the next 5-10 years. You can never plan too far ahead

I would go to a realtor website and do a map or postal code search and enter the price and acreage range you are looking for --- intracoastal realty, laney realty, century 21, coldwell banker, etc. most of those have that kind of search--- search in pender, new hanover and brunswick counties. It might be hard to find 3 acres and a house at that price range --- if you don't mind living in the "country" might could find acreage and build a house --- best bet for that would probably be Brunswick or Pender County -- if you are looking for a house in a development, it is very rare to find that much acreage (in that price range)

Last edited by NCSC; 07-10-2009 at 07:18 AM.. Reason: clarification of acreage at that price range

You might want to search this forum for info on Hampstead - there is a lot of property between Hwy 17 and I-40 that might suit you.

out of curiosity i did a search at intracoastalrealty.com for 2+ acres with at least 2500 sq ft. home at a limit of $500,000 in new hanover, brunswick and pender and there were 19 hits. check it out -- should be helpful to you
