Small world. It sounds like some of here may actually be neighbors. Possibly even living on the same street becasue I know in Crismark, all the house plans I have seen mentioend here, all in the Cambridge Series, are pretty much being built in a concentrated area.

I am supposed to close next week, depending on how our walk through goes. So far it has gone smooth. I hope that continues. I tried to research Westport but couldnt find a whole lot. The BBB reports favorably and I didn't find any negative info on them on the net. So hopefully we will all be happy with our experience. This is my first time building. What an experience.

I have several homes under contract with Westport. Besides the usuall stuff with builders in that range nothing unusual to report.

Everyone from the Superintendant to the office staff have been spot on and responsive with any issues.

My clients are happy.

The Westport Homes at Crismark are beautiful! You get a lot for your money, but you get absolutely no yard. You walk out your back door and that's it. If that is ok with you, it's a great place to live. I live in the Eastwood Homes part of Crismark and we love the community. They have nice functions and news letters and the homes in all sections are just so well maintained and wonderful.

NJ Mom, We just moved here from NJ in Sept. There are three builders in Crismark, Eastwood, which is the cheapest starting around $170K, then Westport starts at about $180K (there are two sections too- the houses in the high 100's and the REALLY low 200's and then another area where the homes are in the high 200s), and then there is Dublin Homes which starts in the mid $300s. The Dublin homes in NJ would go for about $800k. All brick front, granite counter tops- upgrades are already in them.

The Waterford 2 is breathtaking. But again, you don't get much of a yard with Westport. If Dublin is in your price range, you get the whole package. The brick- the upgrades, and the yard.

I think you will love the community. It's new- they are working on things but they keep you involved and really try to have neighbors meet each other. We had a fall festival here in October, and it was lots of fun.

Many of the homes are so new in this area, resales are a great option NJmom! I bet you'll be pleased with your decision.

Back home (in Jersey), homes are older overall. I could have never pictured myself in a 3-year-old house. Our home feels and looks brand new, with nice upgrades (custom builder) but came without the sticker shock.

Good luck!

Sara exactly, that is what I liked about Quellin, Alot of those homes are custom and wow living here in NJ u know how much those homes would be, the house we looked at with everything it had to offer and the location well that would have been about 850k and there it was 399k...I just hope in the next 3-4 months housing prices dont explode there....
