Hello,

I just wanted to thank those who offered guidance in our decision to relocate to the area last summer--especially those who PM'ed me with 'insider information' regarding certain subdivisions and builders. Boy, talk about dodging bullets!

We decided to build in Amberly (Cary, NC) with Rice Builders, and I couldn't be more pleased with this decision. Dennis Rice is absolutely a delight to work with--he builds an amazing home, is very active in the process (visiting the job site 2-3 times per day), has very high standards, and best of all is simply 'trustworthy' through and through. You know that you're in solid hands with Dennis, which provides an unbelievable amount of comfort. He's makes himself available and responds quickly and fairly to all questions.

Our home will have so much more than what we would have had, both in quality (exotic granite countertops throughout the house (all bathrooms!), built in speakers throughout, central vac, wet bar, wine pantry, huge walk-in pantry, energy star, etc.) and size (+500 sq. ft), had we built in the other subdivision we were considering (Weycroft), and for more than 100k less!! Plus, Amberly has the BEST community center in the area, and the neighborhood is really designed to create community--which is very nice for us transplants. There are no obvious uncertainties with the developer, and the homeowners are quite pleased with how they've been treated (AFTER the SALE!). The lots are smaller, sure, but the quality and size of the home that we are getting for the money could not have been beat anywhere else in the area, and it's my belief by any other builder. Dennis Rice is simply a gem of guy and an amazing builder. If you'd like to know more, PM me, we couldn't be more pleased. Our home will be finished early June.

Thanks again for all of your help!

It really varies--they are listed for $135-$148 per sq. ft as of late, with a range of $400-$500.

Our house will end up being around $139 per sq. ft., just a tad over 4000 sq. ft., and as I mentioned it's 'fully loaded' (including the above noted items plus outdoor landscape/house lighting, full travertine master with heated floors, rain shower, frameless door, and marble countertops, whirlpool duet steam washer and dryer, murphy bed, etc.--a lot of 'extras' that typically wouldn't be included so the price per square foot could/should be much lower than $139--also, we're on one of the 'larger lots' so we should have about 20 feet apart from each of our side neighbors. If you're considering building, definitely give Dennis Rice a shot at being your builder--he's terrific and you'll get the most bang for your buck, oh and did I mention he's trustworthy?!
