Relocating to a new community can be a stressful endeavor, but those who relocate to the warm climate and Southern charm of North Carolina’s southern coast rarely have any regrets. The Wrightsville Beach and Figure Eight Island, N.C., communities are welcoming and friendly. Whether you’re retiring, relocating for work or just want to live by the sea, we’re sure you’ll love this part of the world as much as we do.
We planned this section to make relocating to the area easy. Our section on neighborhoods will serve as a guide for understanding what’s available, and our section on real estate companies will help you find an agent who can lead you to the perfect home, neighborhood or apartment. If you’re arriving on a boat, or bringing a boat with you, we tell you about the local marinas and marine services as well.
If you’re buying a home or building a new one, you’ll find it helpful to see our information on banks, mortgage companies and home services. You’ll also want to study up on our information about local schools, colleges and universities, child care centers and day care, healthcare, volunteering opportunities and green living. Our Economic Overview and Employment tips will help you get a feel for the job market.
Retirees will find a section just for them, including information on relocating, getting involved in the community and staying physically active.
