Hello,
I am new to this post. My husband and I have a lot in the Players Club area of St. James and are now just starting to look at builders. We are going down in June and will talk with Wilsey Builders, Bill Clarke Homes, and I think one other. We are hoping to stay in the $300,000 range for approximately 1900 - 2,000 square feet. I am interested in any feedback on builders that anyone may have. Thank you in advance. We are about 2 1/2 years out from building and I am feeling a bit overwhelmed already!!

We have just signed a contract with Logan Homes to build on our lot in the Woodlands. We have found working with Paula to be a real pleasure. You might consider adding them to your list. Good luck

I recommend cl smith construction very highly, we had our house built in Arbor Creek and are very happy with the outcome. The most important thing, besides the attention to detail, was the fact that anything that needed to be taken care of after the build was completed was done so quickly. Since we live in Connecticut and have not been able to get down before the one year final inspection was up, he even told us not to worry and would take care of anything needed when we come down in July. Now that alone shows me the high integrity of this builder.

You might want to review this before making any decisions.

We are building in Brunswick Forest, and are very happy with Kent. We did find that depending on what you're in the market for, some builders are more willing to make any custom changes that you want and others like to stick to their model plans. We liked the model as is and wanted very few changes. In our case, Kent was the best value.

When we looked in other states (further north), you typically had to figure $20k over stock options to get reasonable quality appliances & fixtures. All the builders we interviewed had that quality in their base price, and we felt that saved us a bunch.

this looks like aboutg $150/sq ft you wish to build for???? Has anyone given you prices around this figure??? We are building in Ocean Ridge Plantation and I bet everyone I spoke to gave amounts of minimums of around $1280 - $225 sq. foot for a good home, including some nice tiles, glass backsplash, etc. lots of trim. Will $150 even give you trims????

$225.00sq foot would scare me a little given the re-sale values on many of the existing homes that have hit the market lately.. especially on homes over 2500sf.

I don't know. quite a few of the newer homes in Ocean Ridge Plantation now go for over $170 sq. ft. and those were built in the early 2000's.

Notice that quite a few of those homes have been on the market for several months plus.. Given their asking price verses the assessed value is something to think about.
