Hey everybody!

Can anyone tell me about the homes being built by Wade Jurney?
I looked a few today, which were so nice and right up my price range. I read in an old forum from 08' that they do section 8 with a few houses. I'd rather not live in an area that takes section only because I know areas here in NY are horrible. I also don't know the precise address, but it's near E. Lee St/Bluestale and Holliston st. Anyone familiar with the area? I'm worried because after reading a few post every one says the east part of the GB is not the greatest, many sketchy neighborhoods. E. Lee st is one that everyone mentions, but the street is so long.. What are the areas or cross st everyone keeps speaking about?
I lived in New York (The Bronx!) all my life and I can present you some REAL SKETCHY NEIGHBORHOODS! What I saw today is nothing, it was quite nice, but then again, I was only around for a few hours.

Also, we visited two High schools (Northwest and Southeast) I wanted a feel of both school opposite from each other and surprisingly, my son really liked SE they were so nice and welcoming. He met a few teachers at SE vs NE, none of the teachers even said hello to us, the kids did not look very welcoming plus the atmosphere was so different.
These houses are zoned with SE that's why we are looking into them.

Sorry for such a long post.

I truly hope to hear from a few of you's my husband is really considering the area and I would love to know if it's worth it.

Thank you!

That part of Lee Street/Gate City Boulevard is sort of semi-rural. Most of the sketchy areas are between Murrow Boulevard and Business 85. The are you are talking about is past that. SE High School is a decent school, if your son likes it, go for it. You might want to look closer to the school, maybe in the Pleasant Garden area. One issue with the neighborhood on E. Lee Street is that it is quite removed from any amenities like shopping, restaurants, etc.

Thanks BC1960

We are still looking but it seems like it may be a go! But I want to make sure it's the right decision.
Also I did notice it was pretty far from shopping and restaurants etc
Still have a few months, so we will see...

Btw thanks for responding, you've responded to a few of my post and you have been very helpful!

We bought a Wade Jurney home this year. We haven't lived in it for very long so my opinion is obviously only going to be a "first impressions" but we already like it a lot.

Note that we are NOT in Greensboro. I'm not familiar with the streets you were naming, but I get the impression they were in Greensboro? Anyway, I can't speak to Greensboro - only been there once, I liked it a lot better than Raleigh, but I need to visit it more to be able to speak to it.

The Wade Jurney home we bought is in southern Alamance county. It is a nicely laid out house, warm and welcoming feel, no wasted space, and so far as I can tell from only three months of ownership it seems sound. You mentioned section 8 which I am hazy about but isn't that rental housing for low income seniors? If so, then I don't think we have any of those on our development.... everyone in a Wade Jurney home here is an owner, not renter. I don't know about elsewhere though.

Thank you so much for the reply!!

I'm also happy you are liking your new home.
Yes, the houses we are looking at are in the south east area of Greensboro. The area seems nice and quite and I'm to sure why some people say most of the eastern apart of Greensboro can be sketchy, living in New York I know sketchy and what I saw was not.

As far, as section 8 I hate to stereotype but I talking from experience in NY most section recipient aren't just senior citizen, its a lot of low income people and where I'm from some don't care how they live and are very rude disrespectful (again I said some, I don't want any one to attack me)


Would you mind sending me a message and telling me how your process when with WJ? Did you use their lenders? if not its ok and thanks again !

It's probably worth it to read the 30+ 'Wade Jurney Homes' Google reviews that come up if you do a search - the great majority of them being 1-star (out of 5) ratings.
