So you’re ready for a change. Congratulations on the decision. Whether you’re moving to Moore County to be closer to family (or further from family!), for new business opportunities, or to access to a better climate, you won’t be the first to make the move. And that means you can rely on others to help you with the transition. We hope you’ll find some of the following tips helpful.
Choosing a Real Estate Agent
One of the first items on your agenda will likely be to find a real estate agent—and rightfully so. Real estate professionals, including Realtors®, know the area better than most and have their fingers on the pulse of the housing market. They also tend to have great materials to familiarize you with the area, and can provide windshield tours of communities. A perfect place to get started is the Mid Carolina Regional Association of Realtors. And don’t let the name fool you, these pros will easily cover all of Moore County.
Moore County Homebuilders Association
For many, building a home is a once in a lifetime opportunity, which means you'll have to rely on someone other than yourself to do the heavy lifting. Since you want to be sure the job is done right the first time, be sure to trust local, licensed builders. To learn more about building a dream home in Moore County, or to find a homebuilder and start your project, visit the Moore County Homebuilders Association website.
