New Construction

Why Build Your New Home?

Someone just handed you a blank sheet of paper and a pencil. This is your chance to sketch just what your dream home would look like.

You are starting from scratch so it can be anything you want it to be. That is the number one reason people choose to construct a new home versus buying an existing one.

Honestly, for every reason to build a new home, there is an equally strong reason to buy an existing home. And for the lucky ones shopping for homes in the Wilmington area, there are plenty of both available.

So, while sketching your dream home, make a list of all the reasons to build it.

Tax rates are something that need to be kept in mind when shopping for a home. Here are the tax rates for this area:


New Hanover County.554

Carolina Beach.235

Kure Beach.285

Wrightsville Beach.133


Before going to the next step, make a list of questions for your realtor. It is their job, after all, to help make the decisions such as location, new versus existing and any other question you may have.

When you are ready, the next step is contacting the David Cummings Real Estate Team! They know the area, the neighborhoods and can find just the neighborhood to build that dream home in.

By the way, welcome home to Wilmington!
