People from New Jersey, New York and California have been calling now in 2020 more than ever. Lots of people are seeking to move out of the city and get some land where they can be away from crowds of people and viruses.
More and more people are working from home and they’re flocking to North Carolina where we have warm weather, beaches, mountains, less taxes and an awesome economy.
Looking for Land
Most people moving to the area end up in Raleigh, Durham or Chapel Hill or one of the many suburbs. However, people looking for a few acres with their house end up eventually moving to Pittsboro.
Outside of the city limits people hunt on their own land, garden and have chickens – although some simply enjoy the trees or a swimming pool.
Downtown Pittsboro is a charming little place and the coming Chatham Park is bringing modern parks and greenways to the area.
