Hampstead, N.C., is a fast-growing community thanks to its waterfront properties, natural beauty, slow pace and proximity to Wilmington and the beaches.
Many of the housing opportunities are on the waterfront, along the Intracoastal Waterway or on nearby creeks. Of course, these properties are sold at premium cost, but there are more affordable properties off the water as well.
For anyone who hopes to retire or relocate to the Hampstead area, this section helps lead you through the offerings. Hampstead is not incorporated, so there are no city taxes. Pender County has low property taxes as well.
We also give you listings of local real estate companies and agents, with helpful information and links for finding the one who will best meet your real estate needs. This area has a wealth of reputable agents and we offer our recommendations with confidence.
Because so much of the appeal of the Hampstead area is water-related, in this section you’ll find our Marinas section, which will help you decide where to dock the boat and meet like-minded friends.
Retirees will find a section just for them, including information on relocating, getting involved in the community and staying physically active. For the later retirement years, we offer information on getting help from the community as well as assisted living facilities.
