Or are you just picking on WT!
You know this community has no Amenities, as of yet? Correction, it has a walking trail right under the High-T's.

Steer? That would be illegal. I would show them what ever they want to see. But I would tell them the pluses and minuses. Like High-T's or Smelly sewer plants, or busted pipes on some homes, (but JW, has one of the best warranties in the business 5/20)

To answer your question, Yes, I have driven thru Phase II. I am not picking on WT, but you sure are defending it like a sales rep would!

actually I probably fit the bored housewife living out of state category, but thanks, maybe I will get a job for a builder when I move there. I think it's a personal decision thing, after talking last nigt with folk, and I still agree you dont want 'T's in your back yard, but I think you choose the negative that least bothers you. It strikes me that realtors don't particularly want to sell folk a home that's not built yet, when there is so much inventory they can earn there 3% on already out there.

Do like my wife did, and get a contract, not to work. Of course her job is harder than mine with three kids.

Agree about the "choose the negative that least bothers you thing."

BTW, I would sell you anyhome you want, I would just tell you "the good, the bad, and the ugly." People tend to want inventory now, because you can "get a deal". As long as no one has moved in there is no expireation date!

Default While stocks last

My gut feeling is that the resale inventory will start to move very quickly in April and May. Builders are not accepting contingents to build homes, so folk who would normally build will be looking for a resale. Maybe the price of new vs resale deal will be very similar. Although most builders cannot now promise new intime for school. Anyhow, I think we've talked out our subject here. I think we have one thing in common, 3 kids!! :-)

I think Weddington Trace is a gorgeous neighborhood. It is very similar to another Ryan community in Mint Hill, Stonebridge. WT's power lines are a worry. We are looking in there, along with Stonebridge and one more Ryan plus several others. The deals in WT are pretty great if you can do the High Density lines.

They have two 4,000 square foot homes selling for $425,999 and they'll go lower. You're getting all brick estate home at nearly 100 bucks a foot! That's crazy. The neighborhood will sell for 650-750 for that size home really soon, and in WT there are some 800,000 homes. You'd have a lot of equity. it's tempting to do, but we couldn't have our three kids living under that big huge power line.

The lots in Phase II have a $50,000 premium so to rebuild the same home without the lines would run you about $530,000 or so. Big difference.
