Hmmm we're moving to BF next month, I haven't heard about flooding issues, and don't need to get flood insurance. It's a big development, which sections are more likely to have flooding?

Biscman was referring to Brunswick Plantation not Brunswick Forest.

Not so, it is close enough to partake in the amenities such as entertainment etc., but not close enough to be bothered much of the tourist traffic.

I've been here 10 1/2 years and had property for 7 years before that and hear, which I AGREE with 100%. "I wish I coulda', shoulda', woulda' moved here sooner.

Brunswick Plantation did have SOME flooding but NOT the entire community,

There was sporadic flooding in some places but, it was rare occurrence.

We live in Albemarle Plantation in Hertford NC. it's about an hour south of the VA border and an hour west of the Outer Banks on the Albemarle Sound. it is resident owned with a fantastic golf course, pool, marina, fitness center, clubhouse, restaurant, etc.
Easy trip to the beach but definitely not in the mayhem! we've been here 4 years and love it.

OP, check out River Sea Plantation in Bolivia. It's all single family homes and very quiet. It's also a 10 minute drive to Holden Beach and Oak Island. We have family there and they love it.

Many areas of Carolina Shores had flooding issues with tropical storms and heavy rains. Brunswick Plantation is noted for flooding also. They have many low lying areas that real estate people won't mention.

So did you forget to mention that the front gate was so flooded that homeowners could not get in and had to use the service entrance to get in. My sister lives there and it was a nightmare. Peoples garages where flooded and all the areas that where low lying.

We actually just bought in RiverSea. Hoping that it is everything we expect: quiet and friendly and hopefully far enough away from the threat of hurricanes.
