Hmm, and here I thought Ted Mozer was a retired Forensic Scientist, like a CSI type and now I find out he's in Real Estate................

Brit, I have given the advise before, rent before you purchase, you must live here, through the seasons to find the area that you will be happy in.

No. I have no interest in the Real Estate business. It's just that we have purchased three homes in the past three years and have had very good realtor expieriences with three different realtors. I thought they helped us a lot. Just passing on my opinion.........

To interject in the humor -- if someone DOES know someone working for dockstreet realty (doing the Market Commons housing) - I'd like to get in touch -- I toured an open house last weekend; and emailed the generic email addy on the nice woman's business card - and no-one has gotten back to me yet this week.

It's the old adage, people do want to buy, there are just no professional salespeople around to help them buy

Brit2412,
I live in the Lakes, and I think it is one of the better neighborhoods here. Good mix of younger and older families. With some retirees here, I think it feels safer. There is always someone home, and everyone looks out for each other. All homes here have a nice lot and were custom built in the 1990's. With that, they all look different. We have lots of lakes full of ducks, geese and swans. Spring is the best because there are tons of baby swans and ducks walking in the streets and swimming in the lakes. You can't beat the location, either. We are right on the bypass just south of 544. I'm minutes to everything, including the beach but without the outrageous taxes.
Good luck!

Gosh darn it. We missed this area on one of our trips down to MB. Looking at google maps right now.
Thanks for your information.

You mentioned your kids go to St James schools. So is Carolina Forest schools only for kids who live in the Carolina Forest area then because wouldnt your home be closer to CF then St James?
Thank you.

Thanks for answering. I like non-cookie cutter. I enjoy an older style home, such as victorian. I ust don't want my neighbor to have exactly the same house in a different color. An older, established neighborhood is good too.
The only reason i will look in to Market Commons is because their homes are unique.
Even old-style brownstones in a neighborhood with personality would work.

Marko11,
Yes, Carolina Forest schools are only for kids who live in that area. I work at the college right near Carolina Forest and have many friends that live there. I've heard mixed reviews. Many are happy there and many regret moving there. My agent tried very hard to push that area, but I'm so glad we didn't end up there. The traffic is HORRIBLE, especially during tourist season because everyone comes in on 501. I do hear good things about the schools; however, we are sooooo happy with our schools as well. Actually, the elementary school for the Lakes (Burgess), is a red carpet school that just won the state school award.
