My wife and I have found a home in Brandon Oaks. We feel like we are getting a great deal on the house, and that we will see an increase in our equity a few years down the road. It is a new model home built by Ryland this year, in the Gardens of Brandon Oaks in Indian Trail. Any comments or prior experience with Ryland homes & Ryland mortgage will help.

You can read around in the Brandon Oaks Community website, there is also a message board as well. Brandon Oaks is very nice, lots of amenities. We looked at Ryland homes that were older and *I* wasn't impressed but I haven't seen the new ones so I don't really have an opinion on new construciton, we looked at one in Holly Park (connects with BO but is not part of BO) and there was some ceiling repair and we and the realtor couldn't figure out what it would have been. Other than that one I'd just check it out, go by and ask some of the others that are already there in the community.

The area is growing, keep this in mind, traffic is a problem that they residents of Indian Trail, Stallings and Matthews are trying to do something about on Old Monroe Rd. There is traffic on Old Monroe during rush hour in the daytime, the homes are appreciating but I think it is nice and steady to be honest. I would also read the covenants because it seems that some ppl have issues with Homeowner Associations sometimes and while I think they are reasonable, some don't. Those are available on the website as well.

Good luck! And BO is nearing completion so once there is no new construction then you don't ahve that to compete with if you did try to sell, right now if you have a newer home and trying to sell you do have new constrcution to compete with however from my understanding this neighborhood is very desirable. If you hav echildren there are 2 elementary schools and one is a year round school.

Thank you for the information. We have done all that you have mentioned the past few weeks and feel very comfortable about the neighborhood. I was just curious, because, after reading through numerous posts on here about problems with other builder, i.e.-KB Homes, I wanted to know if anyone has had problems with our builder. They seem reliable, and thorough. Just covering all angles to make sure we do not get hit with a curve ball of some sort on closing in 3 weeks.

We are having a Ryland home built (almost done) and have absolutely no complaints. The superintendant and salesperson are constantly giving me updates and sending me picture of the process via e-mail (I am moving from MD).

Hope this helps!!
