We are seriously thinking about going with M/I homes to build our home at Falcon Ridge and have been really impressed with everything we've seen and heard about the community and the builder so far. I still have some questions though that I'm hoping the people on this forum will be able to answer for me:
- does anyone know how long falcon ridge has been selling for?
- how long does it typically take for a community to fill up completely? Is there a specific time period?
- also, they're only getting the permits for their pool and clubhouse now. I heard from a resident of FR on another forum ( charlottemommies) that they were to build the pool last year and now have slotted it for opening in summer '08. Is there a chance that they might not build the pool in the end? despite them advertising it in their brochures and on their website?

Thank you for your feedback. This forum has been instrumental in our house hunting process.

I can answer a couple of questions here.

The information I had been gven was thus.

Falcon Ridge first started selling in December 2005.

First residents moved inapprox April/May 2006.

As for the pool and clubhouse, the story I was told which does seem pausible was.

They where refused permits for the pool and clubhouse until they where no longer moving all the dirt around, in otherwards when the applied for permits before some of the roads had not even been built, like Caracara ct only got paved around 3-4 months ago.

The pool will happen that is certain, what is not certain is when.

I believe it will take 2-3 years for Falcon Ridge to sell out, if the housing market in other areas of the country rebound a little it will take less.

Thanks flyingscotsman. I wonder if other communities generally take about this time to get sold. Any one have any idea when they opened the final phase of Legacy Park in Indian trail or Matthews Grove by Centex homes to buyers? I'm asking because it would give me a rough idea( I think) about how long it takes for the community to fill up. I understand that the location also makes a difference in these things but still would just like to know. this weekend's observer shows quite a few new home sales in berewick.
Flying, what you say seems consistent with what our buyer's agent told as well, about the pool. She said that the clubhouse would certainly be built before that, or atleast this is what Lauren at M/I told her. Falcon Ridge is right at the top of our list now. We took a look at DR horton in Indian trail over the weekend but they were almost fully sold and we were not too happy with the floorplans and DH didn't fancy the location too much. FR is perfect for us in terms of location, being close enough to Lake Wylie and the commute to uptown. This is our first house and so I think I'm going nuts trying to research this area enough just to be sure that we're making the right decision.
just wish they'd open a good daycare and montessori or two nearby and it would be perfect! Maybe if enough of us keep talking about it on here, someone might read it and act. Just a thought.

Thanks for all your help.
