FYI>>>I have been to Del Web recently and was told that while residents can not put up above ground fences ( so that the landscapers can take care of your lawn for you!) ,You CAN put in invisible fencing. Hope that helps!

I have just come across this site. I know your message is almost a year old, but I would suggest you think very seriously before buying into Del Webb Charleston. We purchased our home in 2008 and are very disappointed with the heavy handed approach that Pulte managment takes. If you do not like "big brother" watching and dictating every move you make, then do not purchase in a Pulte/Del Webb community.

Could you elaborate a bit more? As you can see, most of the feedback about DW Charleston has been very positive so your statement about disappointment is an eye catcher.

Guess we are not going to get a response. You all know, I am perfectly happy here and I was one of the first. Most people I know are very happy. Of course, you will find the occasional one who is not, but that's to be expected anywhere you move.

They have 1 post to their credit. Looks like SPAM to me...I LOVE it in Cane Bay!! Its only going to get better with the years to come. And that land behind the Publix is getting thinned out every day

I've read all GOOD comments regarding DW of Charleston! And the residents are great too, they don't try to run me down on my bike, even when I'm sporting my NYY 27 TIME CHAMPS shirt!!

Yeah, when a few days went by without a response I figured there probably wasn't going to be any. Well, I'm not in DW yet, but I can't wait! Everytime I visit it gets better and better! I talk to everyone and anyone I can find and I have yet to hear any major complaints. True Stella, there's always going to be somebody that won't be happy. To me though, DW Charleston is just about perfect and if you can't be happy there, well, odds are its your own fault. Don't worry Pkr, when I get down there I won't run you over either Lets Go Mets!

Hi Everyone!
I have a few questions.
What happens if ever DW would ever go under?....Yes, from what I've read, it's going to be next to impossible for that to happen, but if it did, what would happen?
Are the school taxes in with the real estate taxes, or are they separate?
My wife and I just stopped in recently at Cane Bay and the above question are for this DW area.
The homes and everything else were very, very nice. We did see one of the model homes had a roof leak and the dry wall was discolored in that room. Not good.
Everything there is top notch.
thanks....ed

Smile Del Webb

There really is no chance of Del Webb going under. Have to admit, when we first moved here with just a few houses and the economy started going south, there were some questions, but we were quickly assured Del Webb was here for the long run. They are building a lot now with well over 300 homes. Goal is 1000.
We don't pay school taxes because of our age..RE taxes are really LOW and they have the homestead act which after you are here for a complete year (Jan-Jan) you get a reduction.
As far as the leaky roof....haven't heard of any problems in any house with the roof. The house are built well and most are happy.

My husband and I visited Del Webb At Cane Bay today and it was a very impressive place. The only issue I have is that the models are beautifully staged and most have the most upgrades possibles, so when you see a home that has a base price of $203,000 that home will end of costing about $250000 if you want it as the model is displayed. A base model home has only the cheapest materials, linoleum, formica counters, the lowest grade of carpets, no sunroom or screened lanai, no gutters on the home and no extra attic storage. The homes are not cheap if you want high quality materials. Also the $219 a month fee really defeats the purpose of the lower tax base you pay for Berkeley County vs. Charleston County. Not really sure it's worth it being that far from Charleston. I know it's only 40 minutes away, but it seemed pretty remote there and not many conveniences nearby. I thought it was beautiful and the people were very nice with no pressure. Anyone living there I would like to hear if you are satisfied with the workmanship of the homes and if the amenities there are fully utilized there. We are looking at new homes on John's Island too and are trying to figure out if the Del Webb option is worth it. Thank you.
Patty
