My wife & I are in our 80s and although I am in pretty good shape my wife has several health problems and I am the 100% caregiver.
There is a big possibility that my daughter & her husband will be moving to a new job in Southport and they want us to be near them. If this comes to fruition, it would probably happen around early summer.
We presently live in a single standing 1600 sq.ft one floor condo on a golf course. We would be interested in something similar, price range $150,000 - $250,000. Would appreciate any suggestions, advice - positive/negative on making such a move.
Access to doctors, hospitals, possibly Senior Citizen residences etc., would help. Within reasonable driving distance to Presbyterian Church and not too far from beaches etc. I have always wanted to live in a small seaside town.
What are taxes and City Council like? Will look forward to hearing from anyone who has either positive or negative advice.
Thanks.

Moving at any time or age can be rather stressful to say the least, but it is very important to try to stay as close to family as possible, especially during these times.
Given the fact that your daughter and her husband are moving to Southport, I would imagine they would be the very best source of information for you from an objective standpoint.
From a more personal perspective and from some one who lives here, it would probably be a wonderful place for you and your wife. We have Dosher Mem. Hospital, Brunswick Comm. Hospital, and many doctors in the area in private practice.
It would be feasible for you to find something in your price range here, would you have to sell first? Our taxes are very moderate, and they will all depend upon which area you are looking into. You can go to Brunsco.net, for all tax information.
Hope this has helped and good luck! If there is anything else I or others can assist you with, please feel free to ask.

Default Possible move to Southpiort

Thanks for your reply and I agree, moving at any time can be stressful but during our 65 years of married life we have moved over 30 times and that included moving overseas!
My enquiry is really exploratory as any move on our part would depend on whether our daughter decides to move. We spent 12 years in South Africa in a coastal town and I loved it and would love to live in a small town by the ocean again.
Thanks again for your input, it is appreciated and I will research the sites you mentioned.
