If retirement is in your near future and you are considering a move to southeastern North Carolina, make sure that Brunswick Forest and its neighboring town of Wilmington, NC are on your list!  Here’s why…

4 Seasons + A Mild Year Round Climate

The state of North Carolina is known for its beauty throughout every season, but the weather and temperature stay mild enough for you to enjoy outdoor activities year round.  Wilmington, NC is especially enjoyable with its cool sea breezes throughout the summer and sunshiny days throughout the winter.

Affordability, Lower Taxes & Less Traffic

The average home price in Brunswick Forest is $350,000 and the estimated property tax rate is .4425 per $100, plus an additional estimated city property tax of .4425 per $100.  With these savings you can hit the road in a new car — AND that will be a breeze too!!  Traffic flow is light in the Wilmington and Brunswick Forest area compared to heavily populated northeastern cities.


Brunswick Forest is ideally located off US Hwy 17 in Leland, NC and you can quickly connect via major interstates to Raleigh, Charlotte and Myrtle Beach. Raleigh is just a 2 hour drive via I-40 from Brunswick Forest. Charlotte can be reached in 3.5 hours by taking Hwy 74-76 and Myrtle Beach is just an hour south of Brunswick Forest on US Hwy 17.
