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.

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.

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.
Magnolia Greens offers a lot of value as far as "Lifestyle Resort Living". Wonderful Golf Course, along with 3 Swimming Pools, Tennis and Workout facility. Nice sidewalks, play areas for when the grandkids come visit. ... more
