Compass Pointe Featured in Where to Retire Magazine

Houston, TX (Aug. 1, 2017) – Compass Pointe, located in Leland, NC, has been awarded a Best Neighborhood designation by Where to Retire, the only magazine in America geared toward helping people with retirement relocation decisions. The award recognizes outstanding master-planned and active-adult communities. A profile of the development will be in the September/October 2017 issue, available nationwide on Aug. 8.

Where to Retire Editor Annette Fuller said Compass Pointe possesses qualities important to today’s retirees. “Compass Pointe, a gated all-ages community, is located outside of Wilmington, NC, near the Atlantic coast. Its 10,000-square-foot Grand Lanai clubhouse features many amenities, including a kitchen, outdoor pool and views of Cardinal Lake, where kayaking is popular. In addition, golfers speak very highly of a new 18-hole course. One happy retiree from Connecticut told our writer, ‘There is a feeling of being at home,’” Fuller said.

A Best Neighborhood award winner is featured in each issue of Where to Retire. To be considered, the community has to be actively selling homes and have many or most amenities in place.

Each year, 700,000 Americans relocate to new towns to retire. Generally, relocating retirees are healthier, better educated and more affluent than those who choose to not relocate. They bring significant economic benefits to their new states and hometowns. Nationally, two dozen states and hundreds of towns seek to attract retirees as a source of economic development.

Where to Retire, now celebrating 25 years in print, is published six times a year. The magazine covers the best retirement regions, towns and master-planned communities, and recently released its 10th biennial list naming the 50 best master-planned communities in the U.S. It has a national circulation of 200,000 and is sold on various newsstands and at Barnes & Noble bookstores. A one-year subscription is $18. All material in the magazine is protected by copyright law, and reproduction of content requires the permission of the magazine.
