NerdWallet, a website that connects people to financial resources, named two Moore County towns to its list of top ten places for first-time homebuyers in North Carolina. 

To help new homebuyers, NerdWallet analyzed how much they could spend on a mortgage and examined the data on appreciation to find the top places for first-time homebuyers in North Carolina.

"This historic railroad town of over 6,500 saw its median home value increase 16.6% from 2010 to 2013, the second-highest gain in the state. The population also grew 10.8% during the same period," NerdWallet reported on Aberdeen, which was #3 on its list. 

Pinehurst, which came in at #7, saw its population grew 16.19% from 2010-2013.
