Aberdeen is recognized as the commercial center of Moore County. At a population of around 7,100, it offers a modern business section along US Highway 1 (as it grows towards Southern Pines), with a full range of retail and commercial services. Typical residential real estate properties in Aberdeen include 2 & 3 bedroom homes in the $100,000 to $250,000 range in well- established neighborhoods. The Aberdeen Historic District encompasses 88 acres and over 100 historic buildings that were constructed in the late 19th and 20th centuries. There are still some restorable older homes available near the original historic downtown area, if that is of interest. Apartment complexes can be found throughout the town. Aberdeen is thriving by combining the new with the best of the past. Median real estate homes prices remain in the low $200K and building at around $98 per sq. ft. Also in Moore County in the Sandhills, Pinehurst has become known as one of the best golfing venues in the world. Though obviously best known for golfing, for many Pinehurst just offers an opportunity to live or retire in a quiet, relaxed lifestyle in a beautiful village where one can enjoy the beauty of the azaleas and wisteria underneath canopied winding roads of long leaf pines and magnolia trees. While the original ambiance of "Old Town Pinehurst" has been retained or restored with nearly all of its original cottages remaining intact, the sleepy little village has grown to a town of over 10,000 residents with an abundance of golfing (of course), superb tennis clubs, and water activities on Lake Pinehurst where waterfront homes and home sites beckon. Actually overall real estate prices in the Pinehurst region will pleasantly surprise you. Median home prices are in the $220k and building costs at $93 per sq. ft. Southern Pines at just over 13,000 residents is also a great Sandhills relocation choice. Over the years this charming town has evolved into a resort community with horses and golf as its main attractions. Real estate properties are available for every demographic ranging from upscale family sized homes to somewhat smaller retiree residences lining the fairways of the numerous golf courses in the area. On the outskirts of town you'll find beautiful horse farms in one of the major horse centers in the eastern United States. For those who are looking for casual living in a golf community, horse country, or retirement venue, it doesn't get better than Southern Pines. Median real estate prices in the mid $200K and building prices at around $100 per sq. ft. Golf, equestrian, business, education, retirement, or whatever your reason to relocate, Fayetteville and the Sandhills Region is a great place to start looking! []
