Yes they are and the community itself is going to be so overcrowded in the next 10 years it will be like living in a major city. They call it a forest what a laugh it has no aesthetic appeal whatsoever when it comes to views, hiking trails, etc. Waterford of the Carolinas is a far better bet and a lot more reasonable. check out Waterford of the Carolina. Its all built out so you won't be having astronomical HOA dues!... more
Resales in Brunswick Forest are holding their value and it is a great neighborhood. The new construction will be priced higher but you get the benefit of "new." None of the homes in Brunswick Forest are old so if you purchase resale it is up to date and should not need any repairs. Either way it is a good value for your money. Call me to learn more, I would be glad to talk to you about Brunswick Forest or other areas. 910-448-1448... more
Don't live there m'self. But even being on the outside looking in, it's apparent folks LOVE it. Socializing amongst the residents is moving right along. Not only do they have plenty of fun within the community, they plan things together OUTSIDE as well. Not so long ago, a bunch of them attended a murder mystery dinner theatre. I was there too, and I can tell you, they were chit-chatting and table-hopping and having a blast. If they're an indication of the rest of the residents, I believe you'd be very happy there.... more
Yes, the homes are overpriced and hoa fee's are the highest in the area. The neighborhood is clean and nicely manicured but the total cost of ownership is much higher than similar neighborhoods in the area. Also, if you are under the age of 65 you will stick out like a sore thumb. I would compare living in the "Forrest" to living in a retirement center or nursing home. To make matters worse, they are building many lower quality homes and strategically undercutting the price points of many resales in the neighborhood. We were lucky to sell our home at a 35% loss and escape Leland all together. We have since purchased a home in Landfall and love it. Hope this helps!... more
Market appears to be picking up a little steam down here. Local baby boomers beginning to retire and looking for small-mid size homes.
