Fayetteville, NC (January 5, 2016) - It’s a good time to own a home in North Carolina, whether you’re a native or newcomer.
Thanks to its strong job market and affordability, North Carolina is one of the fastest growing states in the U.S., according to HousingPredictor.com.
“Home prices in North Carolina, especially around Fayetteville, Spring Lake and Fort Bragg, didn’t drop as severely during the recession and have remained affordable,” explains Steve Wilson, vice president of sales and marketing for Anderson Creek Partners, developer of the highly praised Anderson Creek Club master-planned community and the new Anderson Creek Crossing community near Fayetteville and Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
The stability of this market is a draw for both first-time homebuyers and retirees. “The real estate markets around our region are routinely found in top 10 lists for raising families, starting businesses, retiring, job growth, cost-of-living indexes and strong market presences around industries like technology, education and military,” Wilson says.
The housing market in the Fayetteville and Spring Lake area is ripe for the picking. “Robust gains in the economy have helped North Carolina cities stand out as being a strong area for homeowners since 2012,” according to Wilson, who points to data from the National Association of Realtors that document the trend. In fact, Wilson reports that 2015 was the strongest year for home sales in Anderson Creek Club history. There are 19 neighborhoods within the gated community, a rare occurrence in a real estate market where military families are often on the move. “We are a military-welcoming, gated community,” he says. “People are thankful to live in places like ours.”
Here are 3 reasons to commit your family to owning a home the Fayetteville/Spring Lake area. You won’t regret it:
1. The price is right
“The affordability of owning a home right now is incredible,” Wilson says, “Especially for the military homebuyer, with the low interest rates and no-money-down VA loan program. Payments are less than rent. And you get to enjoy all of the advantages of homeownership, like tax deductibility and tax savings.”
2. Appreciation day
“We are expected to be headed into a long-term positive market for homeownership,” Wilson says. “Historical statistics that show that the average new home appreciates by about 4.5 percent a year and we’ve been far exceeding that. We expect this to continue at a fast pace.”
3. The trifecta
Wilson points out that homebuyers have three primary goals in mind: security, convenience and value. “Gated communities in the Fayetteville area like the two that Anderson Creek Partners offer tick off all the right boxes for homeowners, helping them feel at home immediately.”
Living in a beautiful place, being among friends, feeling secure and owning a home are the American dream that you can live today!
