Wow! That's a very vague question. What part of North Carolina are you looking? What size houses? What price range?

There is a subdivision in Browns Summit, NC called Wellington. Just North of Greensboro. Great amenities, pool, clubhouse, fitness room. All in a great price range. Some of the best schools in the area. Lots of great people live here, all age ranges. We absolutely love it.

Many move to the south to avoid things like subdivisions. You may want to get a realtor or do the mls research online.

Hello, I was just wondering if you are still happy in Wellington. I realized this post is about 5 years old, so I thought I would ask since we are considering it. I am a bit worried about seeing several houses sitting on the market for a while. Is there a reason such a great neighborhood with nice homes, great schools, and great prices wouldn't be able to turnover homes quickly? Has there been any indication that redistricting to Northeast might be happening since these homes sit right on the edge of that school's boundary? Any help would be much appreciated.

You can't buy a home based off of what the the school zones "Could Be". You buy on what they ARE! Schools will always be built and districts will always be re-organized. I've lived in Wellington for over 5 years. The community is very strong when it comes to organizing in order to do whats best for the neighborhood. Whenever redistricting comes around, the entire community gets involved and their children's schools are extremely important. The community shows up in force when it comes to schooling and property value changing events. There are some very powerful and influential people within the community and they aren't going anywhere.

The reason you see some homes staying on the market is just simply the real estate market. This is a community that brings in families with multiple children and thus need the space to house their larger families. The few homes that you see staying on the market are the smaller homes or ones that are on poorly designed and thought out lots. You're not going to sell a house in any community that sits on a backyard with a 70 degree incline towards a pond very quickly. This community also offers the ability to build a new home, so some choose to do this instead of buying an established residence. The main/older portion of Wellington doesn't keep a house on the market for more than a few weeks. So if you're seeing one that is sitting, it's most likely the poorly designed one on Dorwood or the very cute house on the corner of Cripplegate/Dorwood. Those aren't selling because of the market, not because of school zones. Northeast school will never be a factor and you'll see the lines of northern head further east which will give the district worriers some room to breathe. I just know better.
