Yes they look beautiful , the new development Bella Sera and right across the street will be Portofino (not the restaurant lol) but they are right on top of each other.
John Weiland has a great reputation and gives you alot for your dollar IMO.
Anyone know about Dublin homes reputation?

From a Realtor's perspective, I think the John Wieland product is superb. John Wieland Homes & Neighborhoods strives to deliver a PERFECT home to their buyers in all their carefully-located metro area communities. I have helped several of my clients into homes in Brookhaven and they are so very happy with the location, schools and neighborhood. In the end you get more for your money, the BEST amenities, opportunity for resale and appreciation (very important even if you plan to live there forever) and a super warranty. I cannot say enough about the process - each new construction has a highly-accountable builder who communicates with the buyers continually as to the progress.

As for the others, it really depends on your price point. There are great new neighborhoods from Mint Hill across to Ballantyne at all pricepoints. For schools, I'd recommend staying in Union County or South Charlotte rather than South Carolina, although the Fort Mill schools are highly regarded. South Carolina recently took the school portion out of the property taxes and is making up the difference with sales taxes. Although property taxes are therefore lower for homeowners, the situation is troublesome for the schools in this current economy.

Shea Homes is a good builder and Providence Pointe is an OK community, but there are plenty of others. A wonderful community you might look at is Lawson in Union County. There are several good builders there including Shea, St. Lawrence, Orleans and Ryland. The neighborhood amenities (almost as good as Wieland's), new schools and location are superb. Although the builders have aggressive incentives, there are newer resales that are good as new at great prices.

Caution: one important thing to keep in mind when purchasing in a new construction neighborhood is when the builder(s) will be out. Homeowners who sell while the builder is still active almost never see appreciation since the builder will always undercut the resales, especially in this competitive market. Optimally, find a community where the builder is almost finished and offering close-out prices if possible. It is worth your while to have the help of a Realtor working for you, and it won't cost you any more.

It is a WONDERFUL time to be relocating to Charlotte! Can I help you with more information and websites?
