Hello,

We are hoping to move up to Greensboro by the end of the summer. We are looking at the Willowridge community by Centex Homes.

We like one of the floorplans and the prices seem reasonable.

We haven't spoken to anyone there yet and would like to know ahead of time what to expect.

I am hoping someone would be able to tell me what the average lot premiums are for new home construction - and if you know the answer specifically for Willowridge, that would be awesome!

Thanks in advance for your replies!

Marj

Willowridge is literally 'on' I-40...maybe 50 feet from the 6 lane interstate. There are better neighborhoods for the money in terms of location. Centex does have nice plans for the money, but that series does not offer 9ft ceilings (which is becoming the standard these days) and there options tend to be pricier than the competition around here...DR horton and K Hov.

For the money, I would try WoodCreek by DR Horton about 3 miles down the road...your out of the city taxes and in a better school district. A 4 bedroom home with a double garage and formal dinning comes standard with 9ft. smooth ceilings, 42" cabinets, tyveck housewrap (some of these builders around here skimp out on the important moisture barrior..DR horton does not) and a garden tub in the master bath. It will set you back 150k even. And WoodCreek has much larger lots...about 1/4 acre.

Also try GreyStone from Windsor Homes, a very popular local builder, or Birch Creek Ridge from DR Horton.

I looked at homes, areas and builders for 6 months after moving here and found these two builder to offer the best balance or value, standard features, less expensive upgrades, lot sizes and quality.

Oh and by the way, don't let anyone trick you into paying a lot premium here. There is an abundance of land and not a single builder I looked at was charging them 6 months ago.

I would stay away from Willowridge. It might as well be on I-40. I'm sure you can find better.
