Does anyone know how they are selling at Hortons Creek and Stonewater by Lennair? We have been looking at the area and last time we were at Hortons Creek, they had only sold 3 houses. We want to move to that area next year sometime before our children start school..
Thanks

I've heard Stonewater is selling pretty well. We actually considered one of their patio homes but opted for a place "more in the thick of things". What I really liked about Lennar was that everything was already upgraded - higher end cabinets, granite countertops, moldings, hardwoods. No need to figure in the additional costs on top of a "base price". What we didn't like about Stonewater was that the development was so new - building will continue for the next 3-5 years. I don't know anything about Horton's Creek.

Thanks for your input. Do you know other places that have patio homes? My mom is looking to move here and only wants a one story patio home and I just checked and Lennar has a bonus room on the second level.
Thanks

Check out the Park at West Lake. I'm certain some of the realtors on this forum can provide a lot more valuable information. Good luck!

Horton's Creek came out of the gate VERY slowly. They built 4 spec homes which were eventually lowered in price by $75K to sell them. Two of them remain unsold at those lower prices. I don't know how they are doing with presales.

The homes are nicely appointed and very well constructed, but I don't think they considered Weycroft's pricing when HC set their initial pricing. As nice as the HC homes are, the homes in Weycroft have a true "custom" feel to them, so there needs to be a sizeable enough price spread between the two neighborhoods to justify not buying in Weycroft.

A buyer spending north of $500K will typically struggle far less with the decision to spend an extra $50K to get what they want. Many Weycroft buyers have relocated from the Northeast with equity from home sales and good paying jobs with companies like Fidelity Investments. For whatever reason, those people are not choosing to live in Horton's Creek the way they are choosing other West Cary neighborhoods.

If you want to stick with Northwest Cary, she could look at the Del Webb Homes in Amberly -- Carolina Preserve. It's an "active adult community" for people over 55 years old. A lot of my parent's friends live there.
