I posted this a while ago and no one seemed to know anything about this area. I'm pretty sure it's in the Charlotte area- if I'm wrong, please let me know! I think this just might be the place I want to build. It's a little way beyond some mall near the middle of nowhere. See, I told you im not sure of the location.

Anyway, they are having a grand opening in this community on August 25. They are with Portrait Homes if that sounds familiar to anyone. Thanks for any info! I have to make a decision before August.

They are townhomes in Concord, NC, just north of Charlotte and that's mostly a nice area. Portrait primarily builds townhomes with some single families too. I visited a couple of different Portrait community offices and the sellers were extremely rude. Add 20k at a minimum to whatever their "starting at price is". I will never visit another one of their properies.

Really? Is that right? Well it's always good to hear someone's personal experience. I hope to make a trip back in the area because I'm curious about Concord. I'm sure there are other builders I can look into.

It's funny you say that the salespeople at Portrait homes were extremely rude because we actually built a TH with them at Old Stone Crossing and they were very, very friendly and extremely helpful! As far as the salespeople at their other locations I wouldn't really know, but as for Oxford Commons I believe their salespeople will be the same ones from Old Stone Crossing. I would definitely recommend them.

Oxford Commons is a new development of townhomes by Portrait Homes. Their grand opening for the initial phase is August 25th. The community is off of
Pitt School Road in Concord, NC and is within easy distance of Lowes Motor Speedway, Concord Mills Mall, and I-85.

I currently live in Salisbury and commute to Charlotte and yesterday I drove by the development to take a look. It's still undergoing heavy construction so it was hard to get a good idea how things will look when it's finished, but I like the floorplans that I saw. There's also supposed to be a community pool.

Approximate location: 2500]2500 pitts school road, concord, nc - Google Maps pitts school road, concord, nc - Google Maps

I'm still looking but this location does look promising. I hope this helps.

Hi,
I myself live in a Portrait home community, the builders are not my favorites, but they pick the locations very well, Oxford Commons is located in Cabarrus County which has grown very fast in the recent years, it has a big outlet mall which is very close the community and has excelent schools.

I bought in Hanover ( a Portrait developement) and they were great. Not rude at all. I even used there preferred lender Sun Trust and Portrait paid all closing costs. Sun Trust was great and I have had no problems with my place however; be wary of the amount of investors buying in and renting. Also, they build these so quickly that some of it lacks quality. Fortunately I live in a developement in which we are trying to put in place a strong HOA with a decent amount of experience to address these problems before the builder pulls out. I also know a great salesperson who I believe is up there and the mortgage guy was top notch (great rate and all) PM me if you have any ??'s. Best of luck!!

We are looking at Portrat v. Centex... and went to open house to look at a couple of plans at Oxford. I like location but it's too far for husband. We are looking at Back Creek.. They will build Ellington, Cambrige and Frederick plan as a house there... sales people ex. one were very nice.. he's a pushy guy.. They say only one plan left that we like there and I guess that is true...

Talking Oxford Commons

Hello,

I just moved into this newer subdivision a few months ago and have really enjoyed it so far. Very friendly neighbors and nice large community pool. They had a neighborhood cookout a few weekends ago where there was free food, water volleyball, corn hole tournament and some other fun social activities. The location is really great! This community is located directly beside a new elementary school (Carl A. Furr), 1/2 mile from the nearest grocery store + dry cleaners, 1.2 miles from Concord Mills Mall area where there is tons of great shopping and so many good restaurants and about 5 miles from UNCC. I commute to uptown Charlotte for work but even with 8 am traffic, I am there in 20 minutes.

I am very blessed to have been able to qualify to buy a new home during these tough economic times. I actually took advantage of this sale they are having now where the developer is selling the model homes that come with a bunch of energy efficient upgrades already installed, new appliances included and also completely furnished with all new furniture in every room (beds, bedroom sets, pillow top mattresses, sectional sofas, lounge chairs, custom window treatments, framed art on the walls, fancy paint jobs by interior designers, etc). The good thing about this deal is that when looking for financing, Banks WILL NOT loan on furniture/ personal property and the seller knows this so they are having to give away all the interior belongings for free! (It is really just an added bonus because of the economy but I took advantage and am pleased to have my entire house look like it was decked out by HGTV!)

Well, if you work a lot like me, want maintenance free weekends with NO yard work, don't have 3+ kids yet and like to be close to great shopping and restaurants then this community might be for you. If you are looking for a home with a 3 car garage, a big fenced in yard and that sort of thing, then look at a neighborhood called Riverwalk that is also a newer community in this same area with 4 and 5 BR homes.

Thanks,

-William
