What are you talking about?
Is there a specific tax for the hospital in Southport?

it is not that much. people just made a big deal about it. taxes on my house valued at $450,000 was ~ $2300 for the year and included county taxes, southport taxes and dosher tax -a whopping $180. people here dont realize what others are paying elsewhere on taxes - like a thousand dollars a month in some places.

I think the hospital tax is 4 cents per $100 of property value.

oakwood glen is nice but has a horrible POA in place and now you'll have County and City taxeou have along with poa dues which you absolutely receive nothing but a headache. You have absolutely no police protection after a major storm, our roads are ready to have major sink holes and guess what? The county nor city will fix them because its a private community. Alot to think about

What about RiverMist in Southport? It is approx. 5 min. to downtown Southport and 5 min. to Oak Island.

It is a new neighborhood, being built by Centex. It has townhouses (really condos that look like townhouses) and single family homes.

Eventually it will have a pool.

Does anyone have anything good or bad to say about it?

Sunset Beach is a good area. I have an instrument student that keeps his plane at the airport in Ocean Isle Beach that is from Portsmouth. He has a house in Sunset Beach that he and his wife live in from January to May, and then they go back to Portsmouth. There is also a new Lowes Food Plaza about to open just North of Sunset Beach on 179.

Oak Island.......... period............. nuff said

This is my experience with it. Ever since I was 4-5 years old (when my family lived in Charlotte) we've been going on vacation at Caswell Beach which is part of Oak Island. It is SOOOOO beautiful there. And BIG chains haven't taken over. When I was smaller I absolutely LOVED it because it was REALLY family oriented and definitely quieter then areas like Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach

It's nice and laid back, VERY close to Southport. Beautiful scenery. I don't remember how close to hospitals and what not, but I believe they're pretty close by.

As I got older (I'm now 25) I definitely felt a little more BORED because there's not much for teens/twenty somethings to do. As I said, it's DEFINITELY a family oriented/retirement kind of community.

My family and I now vacation on the northern OBX (Duck) but I still LOVE Caswell Beach. It's absolutely gorgeous there!

Check it out!

Hi, you might want to check out the following website Mason Landing Yacht Club, Wilmington, NC – Waterfront Homes For Sale, Wilmington, North Carolina or check the website info-nc.com they have a lot of NC information posted on their site for the entire state and you might be able to get some ideas from there. Also, you might wish to check with the Chamber of Commerce for Brunswick County /www.brunswickcountychamber.org I am sure that you will be able to find some place in NC that will suit you as long as you always keep an open mind and positive attitude. After all no place is perfect, but it is what you make it, and how you perceive your life there.
