GMarcan....are you still in Rivermist? Do you enjoy living there? We just purchased a home there. Won't be moving in full time for 2 years but home to get down 1-2 weekends a month and some vacations.

I see you are from MA....we are originally from RI...moved to the Raleigh area 9 years ago. We'd love to have neighbors to watch Red Sox and Patriots games with!

Yes this does help . I'm looking around down there next Thursday. I've heard good things about River Mist . We'd love to be under 300 ourselves. How are the property taxes and insurance?

Property taxes in Brunswick are relatively low. The county rate is $0.485 and Southport's is $0.2956, so the combined rate is $0.7806. There is also an additional 4 cents that goes to Dosher Hospital, so the total is $0.8206 per $100. Thats $820.60 per $100,000 of valuation.

ljd1010 had indicated another thread that his/her quote for insurance in Rivermist was $1,500 to $2,000.

Yes, our insurance is $1500/annually...and that's with the extra wind/hail protection. No need for flood insurance there. Taxes are significantly less than we pay now.


We are closing on 8/30 and very excited to start coming down on weekends.

We really liked it when we visited. Smaller community, 300 homes. Pool, 2 tennis courts, great location. We met several neighbors and everyone was so friendly. We closed on our home this week!

Let me know what you think!
