Hello, my self and my young family are looking to buy a piece of land with a home already on it, preferably a old farm house that needs work. We will be coming down frequently to enjoy the coastal region of nc and to get away from the very busy lifestyle nj brings to us. This piece of land will eventually be our retirement location full time. I would love to have anywhere from 10 acre plus and privacy and rural are key. Another key feature would be proximity to a bay or river as boating and fishing are hobbies of the hole family. School is not as important because we will most likely send our kids to private. Work also does not play a key roll because i will remain working up north .small home town feeling is a must, no large cities because that is what we are coming from. Price range would be up to 100,000 for the right land but wouls love to be alot lower then that.. Hopefully some locals can assist and point us in the right direction with so many beatiful areas to look at.Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The first thing I suggest is getting a map of North Carolina and get all the names of the counties east of I-95. Most of them will have potential sites for you, but if the sites are close to cities or the coast they will be marketed for their development potential. You can check a few sites for farms like this: North Carolina land, lots, ranches and farms for sale

I ran a few searches on Realtor on Jones, Wayne, Bertie, Martin and Duplin counties. There was only land but not livable houses in Duplin. I think it is going to be tough to find 10 acres and a livable house for under $100K. However I found a few options in Wayne and Martin Counties.

An older “as is” house on this one in Wayne County:

This one in Martin County has only horse barns:
