Check out just a few examples of the types of communities that exist in and around Winston-Salem.

New Developments

Best suited for: Those who want brand new homes with the most modern style and amenities. Many communities are still under construction, allowing you to customize aspects of décor and features during the purchase process. Others come ‘move-in’ ready.

The best realtors know where construction on new homes is planned and which builders will offer the kind of features you are looking for. If you are focused on owning new construction, you’ll need a partner to help you navigate all the options and work with you to arrange the best terms.

Historical Homes

Best suited for: Folks who appreciate the unique history and features of period homes, while enjoying the maintenance that comes with upkeep and tradition.

These kinds of homes are preserved and adapted, yet maintain their original charm. In Winston-Salem, there are plenty of amazing choices in the West End housing district. The bonus to living in some of the historical areas is the convenience of being walking distance from diverse cuisine and community park options. Treat guests to a horse-drawn carriage ride or experience some of the unique Winston-Salem pride with Camel City Goods.

Buying a historic home comes with a unique set questions and needs that ensure a smooth purchase process. Working with someone like me, who is familiar with the area and culture, lets you focus on finding the dream, while I handle the details.

Close-Knit Neighborhoods

Best suited for: People who love to live in neighborhoods where folks sit on front porches and wave over fences, stop to chat while walking dogs, and borrow the proverbial ‘cup of sugar’ when the need arises.

One example of this kind of area offers a mix of unique houses, plentiful sidewalks, neighborhood churches, and community shops. Large, mature foliage is a hallmark of the area and it is within walking distance of Wake Forest Baptist hospital, so many medical staffers have homes in the area. I know all the best locations in tight-knit neighborhoods, give me a call and let’s get started finding your next neighborhood home.

Country Living

Best suited for: Those who like to have some space to spread out with beautiful gardens, out-buildings, or even stables.

Whether it’s just outside the city limits or within a formal Winston-Salem zip code, those who are looking for acreage and land for that country living feel won’t be disappointed. There are lots of other larger lots to suit any buyer’s needs. Give me a call and let’s explore how your dream of country living near Winston-Salem can come true.
