Can anyone tell me about the area, or anything about the proposed site? Looks like some nice homes in a decent school district. Thanks in advance. Mike

I think you hit the nail on the head. Very nice homes in a very good school district. I think you'd be very happy with this choice. It's near the base, near good shopping and only 45 minutes from the beach.

Default Laureltowne...Proposed Real Estate in Magnolia, Delaware

Thanks for the quick reply. Would you happen to know how much those homes are expected to be selling for. Maybe even a website with a contact number?

Thanks, Mike

One of the builders there is Century Homes -- here's their website: Century Homes, LLC

I have a friend who lives in Laureltowne; she bought her house June 2007. Very nice home, and she is very pleased with it. We ran into the builder at Fifer Orchards a few weeks ago; remembered her by name, her situation, and asked how things are going with her, the family, etc. What a nice touch!

Not sure if this is the same section, but I'm thinkin' it is. If so, kat196 is right... very convenient to the air base, Dover, the beach, not to mention in a great school district (our boys attend schools in the Caesar Rodney district)!

Thumbs up Laureltowne...Proposed Real Estate in Magnolia, Delaware

You ladies are starting to get my hopes up. Like I've said many times before in this forum. My first priority is to get my two daughters into a good school district...and as best as I can tell Caesar Rodney is one of the best in the Dover area. However, before I go putting the horse before the cart, I have two concerns...the first is can I afford to live there and the second is to ask are there any homes that are at a 90% completion rate so that when the family and I arrive in August/September we could theoretically move right into the home.

As soon as I wake up (Italy is a 6 hour difference from the East coast) I'll be calling. Seriously, please wish me luck.

Mike

Hi Mike,

Gotta love a forum that someone else is up when its the middle of the night in DE!

Have you checked out the Dept of Education website to find out the exact school assignment for your girls? I am not sure about the middle school for Laureltowne; it might be Postlewait MS, not Fred Fifer. Either way, they both feed into CR High School. Its been a while since I checked it, but found that to be a very useful tool last summer when we were searching for a rental in the district.

As far as construction being complete by the time your family arrives... I don't see that being a problem. Barring any major weather setbacks, the contractors have a long summer to "git-r-done", as they say here in DE!

I, for one, wish you a ton of luck, and look forward to welcoming your family to DE right around Labor Day! Keep us posted on your progress.

Mary

As per the local Multi List, they can build any of their models, and there are 17 active listings in Laureltowne. Base List prices begin at $278,900 and top at $347,000 (plus any extra amenities).

What a disappointment. Homes starting at $278K. So disappointing... Jeez. I'll still call at 6PM (local) but barring any really incredible incentives it looks like that's not going to happen either. You cannot imagine how disappointing this is to hear.

No I haven't checked out the DoE site just yet. You're absolutely right, that should probably be one of my first steps. Our eldest will be starting 6th grade in September. How do the Smyrna middle schools rate? Anyone know?
Thanks for all of the help.
Mike
