Steve, you could be spot on, but I would think that the majority of rental properties are mostly condo's/townhomes; any idea as to what percentage the "Large number of rental properties" is?

If the rentals are mostly isolated, one could have a "feel of community" in the other areas with regular homes.

I was at Compass Pointe last week. They have done a lot of work on their Grand Lanai which is a sort of indoor/outdoor structure near the pool. The golf course is scheduled to open next year. I believe the fitness center and meeting rooms are also scheduled to open next year.

Marc - You could be right about the single family homes at Brunswick Plantation being in their own sections. I find it odd that there doesn't seem to be any residents of Brunswick Plantation posting at this site, given how large the complex is.

You need to hear from Bunkershot.

He seems to know quite a bit about Brunswick Plantation.

When we inquired about renting a condo there, the agent told us, they were more geared to golf groups than couples or families. 2 bedroom/2 bath had all single beds.

If I remember correctly, the condos and SF homes were like different neighbourhoods. We have golfed with some full time residents and they loved their community.

Maybe all the residents are way too busy to spend time on this site?

There are many long established developments around that a Realtor could help you find a good deal on an existing home. If your desire is to build a new home than my answer to your question would be I would choose Compass Pointe over Brunswick Plantation. I like the location better. It's a short drive (15-20 min.) to Wilmington and you still have the cheaper property taxes of Brunswick county. There are tons of lots to choose from at Compass Pointe where Brunswick Plantation has a much smaller selection. Brunswick Plantation (not Brunswick Forest) has a large number of rental properties and my feeling is it would have less of a feel of community. The newness of Compass Pointe I think brings the families there closer together in a 'we're all going through this new experience together' kind of way. A number of amenities are still being built at Compass Pointe and this will be a turn off for a number of people. The development at Compass Pointe began just before the real estate collapse in 2008. The fact that they are still moving forward and have put in some of the amenities during these tough times is a positive sign. In addition the developers of Compass Pointe are local business men who have already built successful developments such as Magnolia Greens and Waterford. I won't deny there is some risk but the I don't think there is a better value available in the area to build a new home.

Leland is just a little to far from the coast for me. Without traffic 25 to 30 minutes.

watch out when buying a lot at Compass Pointe. Many of them are in flood areas. They will not tell you, so read the property report very carefully.

I do not believe this statement is accurate.

I concur with steve that is not an accurate statement they are not in the flood zone. You are right about CP not having to many amenities right now but if you can be patient it would be worth it. I've looked at a lot of areas in leland and wilmington and none of them comes close to CP in MY opinion once finished it will look unbelievable like nothing else.

North Carolina has GIS maps which shows 100 year to 500 year flood plains and elevations. I would just be sure and check things out about flooding. Just because you are not near an ocean doesn't mean an area does not flood - it could be river flooding. Google the GIS North Carolina maps.
