Southern Homebuilders: Continued Dedication to our Local Community

Southern homebuilders has been building homes in the greater Wilmington area for over 40 years. Our dedication to providing quality housing at affordable prices hasn’t changed in the last four decades, and neither has our dedication to the communities we serve. Our homebuyers are our neighbors and Southern Homebuilders has long been committed to the principle that businesses should serve as contributors to the local and regional communities to which they belong.

Part of that commitment includes partnering with local small businesses in the Wilmington and Southport area. Quality home construction relies on the coordinated effort of many individuals and small businesses, and we are proud of the relationship we have built over many years with our local network of contractors, suppliers, skilled artisans, and professionals; including carpenters, architects, engineers, inspectors, plumbers, electricians, painters and landscapers. We are particularly proud that out of the dozens of businesses we work with, over 70% are small businesses headquartered right here in the Wilmington and Southport area and all together nearly 80% are headquartered within North Carolina.

This means that when you buy a home from Southern Homebuilders, you aren’t just supporting one local business, but dozens!

What are you waiting for?

What are you waiting for?

Did you know that there’s never been a more affordable time to buy a new home? Mortgage rates are at an all-time low, but they may not be for long. Home building technology has advanced greatly in the last few decades, making your current home more of a fixer-upper than ever, even if it’s just a decade old and even if it’s been well maintained.

Do-it-yourself home projects can be fun and exciting, but not if they take up all of your free time. That’s why we’d love to have you visit any of our models in a Southern Homebuilders neighborhood nearest you. We’re building in Pender County and Brunswick County, so whether you’re looking for a location near the beach, near the base, or in between, we can offer you convenience.

We build homes to suit every lifestyle. If you’re a first time buyer, growing family, or looking to start enjoying the next chapter of your life, we offer homes that will fit your needs. Price point and square footage options abound.

We’ve built homes in Coastal Carolina for over forty years. We’re proud to say that Southern Homebuilders is one of the most trusted names in the business. When you stop by one of our model homes, you’ll find top quality finishes and the most modern amenities.   There’s really never been a better time to buy a newly constructed home that is more efficient and better suits your needs.

You’ll find a lot of information here on our website. Here you can check out floor plans and see the variety that we offer. We can build your new home to suit you.  Don’t hesitate to call us and ask more questions.

Put down the hammer. Spend your weekends enjoying your home instead of diving into yet another project. When you’re ready to relax and enjoy the good life in a new Southern Homebuilders home, we hope that you will visit us online and in one of our many neighborhoods here in Coastal Carolina.

The science of how high winds affect today’s homes

The science of how high winds affect today’s homes is big news. Whether its hurricanes or tornadoes there are few locations that are unaffected by some sort of natural phenomena. In the coastal communities of North Carolina, building codes were enacted over ten years ago to counteract the forces of nature when it comes to high winds. Today’s building codes are much different from what they were just 15 years ago when there was little consideration given for “up lift”.

This is the force exerted by the wind moving in an upward motion and exerting pressure in a direction not previously accounted for. This is the force responsible for the majority of the damage caused by hurricanes and tornadoes and responsible for roofs blowing off of homes allowing the rain to further damage the inside.

The Today Show on NBC recently aired video depicting a manufactured home being subjected to high winds and what happens when an attached porch roof is not properly constructed to counteract these forces. Not only does the car port blow away but it carries the roof of the home with it. While it is close to impossible to cover all scenarios a home built under the current code is required to provide protection not considered just 15 years ago. There are roughly fifteen inspections during the building process on a typical new home performed by local governmental inspectors to ensure safety. So, when you purchase a new home not only are you getting a new heating and air conditioning system and shiny new finishes, but thanks to new building codes you are getting a home that is safer than ever before.

Southern Homebuilders Honored with 2014 Parade of Homes Gold Award

2014-Cape-Fear-Parade-of-Homes-GOLD

Summer has brought gorgeous weather to beautiful coastal North Carolina and, it seems, good fortune as well. Southern Homebuilders has again been honored with a Cape Fear Parade of Homes Gold Award!  Of course, good fortune alone doesn’t win awards; it takes a tremendous amount of hard work by dedicated employees, contractors, and real estate agents to build a quality home.  All that effort would be for nothing though, if not for our home owners who put their trust in us to build them a lasting home they could feel proud to call home.  So a big thank you to everyone who helps build, and everyone who lives in, a Southern Homebuilders home!

002St. Thomas in Mill Creek Brochure

This year it was our St. Thomas model that took home the gold award in the $150,00 – $200,00 category, but it wasn’t the first time one of our cottages in Mill Creek Landing won a Parade of Homes award.  In 2013 our St. Martin model took home the Silver Award and in 2012 our St. Kitts model won the Gold Award.  If you want to learn more about this award winning neighborhood, head over to our website  or check out our Facebook page. Don’t delay though, we only have a few built homes (including the St. Thomas and St. Martin) and open lots left in Mill Creek Landing.

Mariners Pointe Home

While our work in Mill Creek Landing may be wrapping up, construction is in full swing in our newest neighborhood, Mariners Pointe.  Located just minutes away from Oak Island, this quiet community enjoys a peaceful locale while still being close to downtown Wilmington.   Our Mariners Pointe website will be live soon with much more information.  Until then, make sure to like us on Facebook to keep up with all new home developments.
