This is my first blog on this website and I'm really excited. Brunswick County has consitently been one of the top 30 fastestgrowing counties in the US. The maount of growth that I've seen in just 5 years is phenomenal. The best signs for an investor are: Growing infrastructure, Water and Sewer becoming more prevalent, New roads and bridges being built, New employeers coming to the area, Increasing number of people moving to the area. the answers to all those questions are YES! YES! YES! Sewer is going in throughout the county and it is being installed in our number #1 beach community Oak Island. A new international container port is coming to Wouthport, which will bring a lot of jobs and money to the area Our local schools are getting crowded and there are plans to build new ones! Retirees, military, first time home buyers are all migrating to Southeastern NC. A new bridge is being built on Oak Island which will alleviate a lot of traffic and get many more people to the beach quickly! (Majority will only have a 5-10 minute ride, today they travel oveer 30 minutes). Evewn my small town is looking to expand and neighboring communities are looking for partners to help with infrastructure costs, water and sewer etc.
What does this mean for real estate? All positive++++++++++++++'s!!!!!!! We feel by early 2009, our market will be back up and chugging along. And there are way too many good things going on around here to slow down our growth. Watch out rest of the country 2009 and 2010 will be great years for Brunswick County real estate!
