[quote=littlelou2;17734555]Wow! I was so excited to move into the area....you guys are killing me...it seems so nice and close to everything. I was looking for a place that reminds me of my hometown, Red Bank. Wilmington seems to be the place and Brunswick seemed to have the amenities I was looking for...Love to here more, also was looking at Compasse Point. Anyone know anything about that community? Good or bad?

Littlelou, I would take every thing you read here with a grain of salt. I'm from northern NJ and I will give you my take on Compass Pointe. I bought a lot there 2 years ago for a retirement home. I think they are a bit behind where they had hoped to be, due to the economy and bureaucratic red tape, but things are progressing. I was there last month and I can tell you there are about 50-60 homes completed, many of them occupied. They have just put in the swimming pool for the amenity center. Irrigation is being put in for the golf course. I'm told the amenity center will completed by this summer and the golf course is scheduled to be open by late 2012. The lot I bought 2 years ago would probably cost 5-10 thousand more now. When the amenity center is completed I would expect the price to increase and again when the golf course is completed. I like the location because it's not too congested but has shopping centers close by and Wilmington and all it has to offer is a short drive. The nearest beach is about 20-25 min. drive. I've driven from Wilmington to Compass Pointe during rush hour (left at 5PM) and it's not that bad. I will not be seeking work, but I do believe the common theme I've read here, that finding a job is very difficult. Hope I have been of some help.

Brunswick Forest is typically owner occupied, but if someone has decided to rent their place, then the best way to find out that info would probably be a real estate agent. Many times, their offices will have one agent that handles all of the rentals, and they can provide you the details you desire.

Also, it wouldn't be a bad idea to contact Brunswick Forest and see if they have any idea about possible homes looking for a renter.

Navassa and Leland should welcome growth. LBH Properties will be building a senior community soon. With the aging population we embrace the new senior and the inclusive housing idea.

Leland, and most of NE Brunswick County for that matter, are a soulless testament to the fact that America is becoming a placeless suburban mush. NOTHING about NC or even 'coastal' there. 'Michigan' lefts, Florida patio-homes, big box stores, drainage canals as 'amenities', chain restaurants galore (Applebees, anyone?), and no sense of collective planning or vision. It's a bunch of planned communities and strip centers linked by divided highways which all displaced wetlands & forest. Truly sad.

I certainly hope our senior community will not be grouped with strip malls, and box stores. True, change is sometime hard to deal with, but our country is growing and the aging group growing fastest. As we live longer and in better health, a different type of community is needed in response to the changing senior population.

LBH does not plan to build and leave but become a part of the community by supporting the seniors, giving back to the community and provide transitional housing when needed.
