Harnett County, located in the Coastal Plain region of central North Carolina and between the urban areas of Raleigh and Fayetteville, offers easy access to the best of many worlds, from ever-expanding educational and business opportunities to a great “small-town” living experience and abundant recreational activities, all wrapped up in a picturesque rural setting.

Ideally situated two hours from the state’s pristine beaches and coastal waterways, and within four hours of the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway, Harnett County is rich with affordable land and homes available in diverse settings.  New and well-established subdivisions, gated golf course communities, horse farms and over-55 living offer inviting opportunities for all families and lifestyles.

With a cost of living below the U.S average and its central location, it is easy to understand why Harnett County is among the fastest growing counties in North Carolina.
