There are a lot of decisions to make when you are considering a new home. Where will you want to live? How large should your home be? How much maintenance will you and your family want to do? Should you purchase an existing home or build something new? There are many advantages to building a new home:

  • You will be the first family to live in it.
  • You will be able to avoid a grueling house hunt. 
  • You will be able to avoid initial repair and replacement expenses.
  • You will likely have some control over the final design.

From bidding in competition with others to failed inspections and unexpected appraisals, many find their dream houses slip from their grasp during the closing process. Even a successful closing can wear you down and sour your experience. 

One of the ways to potentially avoid some of the stress of closing on a house is purchasing a brand-new home. Here are the steps to closing on a new construction build with Realstar Homes. 



One of the first things you notice when driving by your friends, relatives, or even a stranger’s house is their home’s outside color and style. Paint color and style sets the mood, and depending on the color, it has the potential to raise the value of your home as well as protect it from the natural elements. 

As we move forward into 2021, many home renovation projects are undertaken during the pandemic, and these colors and styles will be seen on houses all over your neighborhood. Whether you are a resident or a tourist visiting the beach, we all have spent one lazy afternoon driving around looking at beautiful homes on the coast. Each home has its unique color and style that completes the ocean environment. If you are planning and designing your own coastal home in South Carolina or simply changing your home’s exterior, it can be exciting but also overwhelming. There are many beautiful colors and styles to choose from. Check out this list of four popular exterior paint colors and home styles for 2021 in the coastal south. 



Ocean Isle, NC, is known for its quiet and relaxing small town. With just over 500 year-round residents, there are several active adult and retired communities. Moving to Ocean Isle is an excellent choice for people looking for the coastal lifestyle without the crowded shores in the summers. This secluded resort town is near the southernmost corner of North Carolina, with access to Sunset Beach and Myrtle Beach. The island has a relatively mild climate in both winter and summer that is tempered by the presence of the ocean. Being one of America’s finest restored beaches, there is an abundance of reasons why people are attracted to the Ocean Isle lifestyle.
