Beech Tree has homes in a range of prices; from high $300K to over $600K. I said and/or owned by the bank...don't quote me (smile)! It could have just been for sale by owner.

Default beechtree and oak creek


I posted a couple of months ago. We are still looking in PG and now mainly in oak creek. We live in Fairfax now. Beechtree is a nice community and definitely has a better layout in my opinion (compared to Oak Creek). I also prefer Lake Presidential Golf course over the Oak Creek course. The only issue I have with beechtree is that the community has a lot of elevation changes, which makes for very nice views of the lake, but also means that you have a hard time finding a flat lot with a flat yard. We have decided on Oak Creek for this reason, also Oak Creek now allows you to pick any lot and get any of the builders to build on that lot. As you prob. know, it used to be the case that certain builders owned certain lots. Much better now, find a lot you like and then pick the builder of your choice. I think prices in beechtree are cheaper. NV has stopped selling in beechtree, now they offer Ryan homes in beechtree and NV is available in Oak Creek.

You'll need to do your homework to understand the value proposition of these two builders but I think it is worth it.
We just had the same experience with the sales rep at Mitchell and Best. She basically blew us off and then wanted to argue with me about the butler's pantry countertop. We were so turned off by her attitude that we walked out and decided not to consider them. We considered going to see there model in VA and seeing if we could use a sales rep from another location. Not sure if it is a Mitchell and Best issue or just a problem with the sales rep at oak creek.

Now considering NV and Michael Harris Homes. How was negotiating for options and upgrades with either builder?

Consider K&P Builders in the Pine Valley section of Oak Creek - their model is the large stone front colonial on Church Road. K&P is a smaller, local builder out of Bowie, MD...they have been in business for many years and build beautiful homes. Their commitment to quality is evident from the way they conduct their business - they even hire out 3rd party quality inspectors to ensure the homes are built to a high standard, holding the subcontractors responsible for their work, and the owners are pro-active...which is more than most of the other builder's can say. K&P will customize the homes to suit your taste - your options are really quite limitless, as opposed to the other builders. They have a variety of luxury home plans that range from a well designed, spacious rambler with 12' ceilings to larger and sprawling colonials with unlimited features. Their standard features for Oak Creek are 2nd to none... They are my personal choice in Oak Creek.

I live in Oak Creek and there has been quite a bit of development in the last year. The gates are up, a playground has been built there are plans to have the swim and tennis center built this Summer. Also, the prices are very good. I am a real estate agent and I have been monitoring the foreclosure and short sale rate and so far there are not very many.

I think it depends on whether they are looking for a single family or a townhouse and what they are willing to spend. I think they should go and meet with all of the builders and determine from there what works best for them. Each builder has it's pros and cons, their own incentives and price points. Personally, the times we visited K&P and Mitchell and Best it was not a great experience but that may have just been our experience.

They have built up a lot over the last year. The community is going to continue to be built probably over the next five years if you ask me.

Hello. Any updates on Oak Creek? We had a tour of some of the available lots and the mansion a few days ago and it looks nice. The guide said about half the lots have been sold. Like other new developments these days, they are behind the original schedule but slowly making progress. What's it like living there? How much progress with the common areas--pool, clubhouse, etc.-- and how are they? Any information would be much appreciated.
