what is your price range and what type of water access do you want? do you want to just view the water or do you want a beach nearby or have a boat and need a slip and/or access?

Default Ouch

Seashellbelle, I guess I struck a nerve, but it was purely unintentional. I was just offering to show people around my beautiful town. We built our home here and I did not need a Realtor for that. However I did use a Realtor to sell our home in NJ, and I'm very glad I did. They got me way more money than I thought my house was worth. They really earned their commision.

Any updates on Compass Pointe? When I ask for updates, what I'm really wondering is are they still building and still selling (your email was dated 2009); has the golf course been built? Are all the amenities in place

There have been a number of homes built and are being lived in. The golf course and amenity center were scheduled to be completed this fall. I have not been down since the fall of last year so I could not give you an accurate assessment of where those projects stand.

Thanks, we'll be there this fall so we should be able to get a good look see at the property. I love the idea of having an 18 hole putting course plus their brochure indicates the 27 holes of golf can also be played as a par 3. We're staying at Magnolia Greens which also looks very interesting.

And, to be really shocking, no hose, just bare legs!!!!
