Are you finally nearing your retirement? If so, you have labored hard to earn the right to begin relaxing and pursuing your hobbies and passions. Whether you have worked for a large corporation, small business, or are walking through the trials of owning your own company; you have worked hard to give your best and leave a legacy. You’ve given a lot of energy and time to your career, and now you’re ready to rest.

Retirement is a time where you can focus on all of the things you have been putting off for the sake of work and your career. You can finally focus on your long-neglected hobbies or start something you have always thought you would enjoy. You can begin working on some creative projects that you have put off or spend your days on the water fishing. Retirement is about finally getting to do what you want and spending time with the people who matter most in your life.

If you are searching for a new home, you must decide between purchasing new construction or a pre-owned home. There are advantages to pre-owned homes. If it is still standing, you know that it has weathered many storms. You can find out how much previous owners enjoyed the house and neighborhood. You can even get a sense of past repairs and renovations, when components were last replaced, and what will need attention next. However, you can count on a pre-owned home requiring maintenance attention within a short time of moving in. For many, this alone is enough to explore a new construction house. 

Building a new home isn’t the same as buying a pre-owned home. For starters, new homes have a lot of perks like being energy efficient, no worn-down parts in need of repair, and the ability to customize your home to your desire. However, there are many things to consider before you get to the stage of designing your home and the construction process begins. These things include budgeting, financing, timing, making choices, and deciding on where to live and who to hire.

Have you thought about buying or building a house on the coast of North or South Carolina? When you look at the options, are you torn between searching in Myrtle Beach or Wilmington?
