So i posted that i was thinking about moving to the wilmington area. After reading other ppls post i fihured i would look more towards southport. I also found that rent isn't cheap so i may as well buy a house. I some houses that i like in Supply. What is this town like? Would it be a good place to start a family, with good schools and friendly ppl? Also i have notice that a lot of ppl live in trailor/ modulare homes why is this??? Is it just bc its cheaper??

wyldazie- Supply is a small unincorporated community between Bolivia (the Brunswick Co. seat) and Shallotte. I know they have their own elementary school (Supply Elementary) but I think the kids go to one of the Brunswick Co. Middle and High Schools. If you look at Great Schools.com you will see that, at Supply Elementary, there is a 12:1 student/teacher ratio and the parent comments are stellar. I don't know about the Brunswick Co. schools.

I have noticed, while driving through Supply, it appears there is a fair number of retired people living there which might explain the number of trailers and modular homes, less expensive for fixed incomes
It is a quiet community but very close to the beaches and about 40 minutes away from Wilmington and N Myrtle Beach.
Good luck with your research

I just moved to Rocky Point a few months back from out of state myself. I work in South Port every day just about and its a really nice town in my opinion. Very friendly people, nice scenery and not much crime at all. Now as far as the Supply area, its a little more sparce. Looks like in a few short years it will probably be developed into upscale gated comunities (like the ones that scatter the surrounding areas), so it might be a good investment to buy property there now as opposed to later. Its hard for me to tell somtimes if i am in Supply or Bolivia, they seem to merge without any road signs telling you so.
Happy hunting.
