Coastal Waterfront Land for Sale in NC

Eastern North Carolina is a watery place. The state’s ocean coastline is highly desirable and highly developed, so if you’re looking for affordable rural waterfront land, the N.C. coast is not the place to look. Heading inland, there is plenty of waterfront land for sale along sounds, rivers and bays, much of it rural and more affordable than land directly along the coast. Keep in mind when looking at waterfront land for sale in North Carolina’s Coastal Plain that the state’s shorelines are dynamic and that flood insurance and wind and hail (hurricane) insurance can also apply to inland properties along the sounds and rivers.
