We are looking at neighborhoods specifically, Vermillion in Huntersville (Ryan homes) and Massey in Fort Mill (David Weekley.)

I have read a ton of threads about builders but wanted to get a updated take on these two as well as the neighborhoods. Does anyone have experience with building in these neighborhoods with the respective builders? Which one is preferred? Quality?

I work uptown and the commute seems to be a bit different for the two areas, trade off being schools and SC taxes.

Any and all opinions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

IMO, Fort Mill has good scools and your home value will enjoy that going forward. The Huntersville neighborhood attends North Neck which is so-so and one day, the home won't be brand new, will have so so schools, and will be just an older mass built home from a decade where new mass built home construction isn't exactly known for quality and more for flash in the model home. There will always be a newer neighborhood too with more "flash."

So IMO the Fort Mill home will age better and keep its value.

We live in Vermillion, in a Ryan Home (Winterbrook). We love the neighborhood, proximity to *everything*, the neighbors, and the walkability. The house is solid, and passed its 10 month inspection with flying colors. It's not a "custom" home, but is still quite lovely. The HOA is very easy to work with and not intrusive.

That being said, for personal reasons, we are putting our home up for sale next week! Let me know if you're interested. ;-)

Good luck in your search.

Massey is a beautiful neighborhood but your commute uptown is going to be horrible -- and that does affect resale. The build-up on 77 and other routes north starts at 7 AM. On a good day where everything is perfect you're looking at 35 - 40 minutes and on a bad day it can be an hour to an hour and a half from Doby's Bridge in Fort Mill to uptown Charlotte. I had a neighbor that sold (we live in Fort Mill) and moved uptown because of the horrible commute -- which is going to get worse as the area gets more built up.

Don't know if college is an issue. Many prefer NC over SC for in-state tuition.

Huntersville you also have Hough HS as a high school that is ranked 9/10. Tons of new homes are being built on the westside of huntersvilles from 250-700kand 2 new communities just across from Hough itself. Huntersville also is close to the Lake, Cornelius,Concord and Moorseville.
Yes Fort Mill is good but Huntersvilles area has more point to tick on my option list. Also agree Universities in NC are way ahead of SC.
Alot of firms have been moving into Fort Mills from out of state because of the proximity to Charlotte and lower taxes but that will soon fade away as build out continues. We already seeing high gas prices in SC due to increase taxes

After visiting Massey and looking at the David Weekley homes, we ended up going to Skybrook North and loved it. Found a plan that worked for what we were looking for and started the process. David Weekley has so far been a dream to work with.

Just a heads up on Ryan Homes at Vermillion, as others have said... they were a complete disaster to work with. They made promises upfront to get us to sign and then started changing things up once we handed a check over. After 2 weeks of back and forth and misrepresentations, we told them to shred our check. My recommendation is if you are considering Ryan Homes at Vermillion, give serious thought before getting in bed with them.

congrats and best of luck!

Since we have the experience already of getting a new built home (twice), I will never, ever consider anything but an established older neighborhood.

We're in our 6th home so we do have experience by now...

One thing we learned is that while I can change things inside the home I cannot do a thing to change the outside...hence the true saying of what really matters: location, location, location!
