Ask questions. Our Agents have the answers and will provide you with property information that will clearly explain the accessibility of the property, access to utilities and the costs associated with purchasing the property.

The attorney's knowledge of the property and area will make for a smooth and timely closing. The attorney can also arrange the closing via mail which will save you considerable time and make for an easy process.
Q. What is a title search or title abstract?
A. North Carolina law requires an attorney to perform loan closings. Part of this process is searching the title to the property. The history of ownership of the property is investigated to determine that there are no others who may have claim to any portion of the property. Any covenants, conditions, restrictions, easements, rights-of-way, deeds of trust or other matters of record that may affect the title are reported. Any findings that are not permitted, such as prior liens on the property, will be cleared by the attorney's office prior to closing. An owner's title insurance policy is issued based upon the findings of the title search.

Most of our lots have property lines that are clearly marked, so when you visit in person, you will find the location of the property lines. Many times one or more possible homesites in a community will be cleared. Additionally, many of our lots have septic permits already completed.
