Hi All...

Does anyone know anything about this neighborhood? I was also wondering how long the commute to Wilford Hall is from Alamo Ranch. When we lived in Spring Vistas, it took about 13 minutes with no traffic. Looks like we have confirmation that we'll be back in San Antonio come July of '08. Thanks!

HW

Hi HW!

I just sent you a PM. Alamo Ranch is really booming! A couple of folks on the forum live there and they seem to really love it! I was just over there yesterday, at Arroyo Crossing which is just across from the David Weekley community. It is really pretty there!!! Lots of trees, a little back from the rest of Alamo Ranch, so a bit more private. Commute time to Wilford Hall from there would *probably* be about 10 minutes more than from where you previously where (depending of course on traffic, and taken in to consideration that AR doesn't have many folks living out there yet - may change as it gets more populated). David Weekley is one of the most well thought of builders, as well.

Let me know if I can help. Sure looking forward to seeing you guys when you get back in town!

Thumbs up Thanks Jules....

I'll keep you posted! I'm sure we'll be out that way
(once we arrive in Houston this June) sometime
to do some househunting. From what I've heard, you
have to start building about 8-9 months in advance of moving?
That would be around this October (6 months away!) for us.

Getting excited,
HW

Default Build time

Yep, that's about right for most builders. The volume builders will tell you 5 to 6 months, but it's almost always longer. Last fall it was taking most builders 10 - 11 months, but now 8 - 9 months would be a good amount to plan on.

Just realized that my last post may have sounded like I was saying that David Weekley is a "volume builder", but they're not. Much better!

It took 3 months for my Pulte. It takes me 17 minutes to park in the Wilford Hall Parking lot.

AirForceDoc,

Now that Loop 1604 South is two lanes all the way to Highway 90, how much did your commute time lessen?

I wonder if 1604>90 from Alamo Ranch would now be quicker than 151>90 since the expansion. Anyong know?

I know one thing: my trip to Bullet Hole takes substantially less time now.

Smile Air Force Doc - commute...

Thanks Air Force Doc...

This sound good. I'm glad to hear that it may be under 20min for my
husband. Can you tell me anything about the Preserve neighborhood? Is it heavily treed? We also plan on looking into Pulte. Thanks a bunch.

HW

I'll be out there this weekend, so will poke around and let you know. From what I saw before, it was my favorite part of AR. Really pretty, lots of trees.
