We are looking at the Hardiman subdivision - off County Line Road in Madison.

My questions are-
1. Is this part of the annexed area of Huntsville?
2. If this is annexed by Huntsville - will my kids get 'bused' all the way to Columbia? I am concerned as I heard some not so good things about Columbia. They've got great facilities though.

Thanks.

Hello! To answer your questions Hardiman Estates is located in Madison and schools are Madison city: Mill Creek Elementary, Liberty Middle, and Bob Jones High School.

Hope this helps.

amsa526, Hardiman is actually in Limestone County but zoned for Madison City Schools, with a Madison address. The homes in Hardiman will be zoned for the new high school in 2012. There are actually a few good deals in the back, at Creekside of Hardiman. Have you checked those out? They seem to have a few nicer amenties with a more custom feel.

Also, Breland is building right there as well. They build a nice home and there were some wooded lots last time I drove through.

Default Hardiman

Yes - we do like Hardiman.

But interestingly enough ... if you drive down a bit, you will find Brighton Park ... which will connect to Ashbury.
Ashbury also has a direct access to the homes in Hardiman.

We have settled on Breland Homes ... but we need to compare with existing homes - that are same size - and build within the last 5-8 years... doing due diligence.

Quick question though ...
Typically - in a healthy market, the first homes in a subdivision will appreciate (potentially far more) compared to the last remaining homes. Is this true here?
I am looking at a new subdivision ... Ashbury - Phase 3 - but not many homes yet.
I am thinking of either jumping in ... or look for a more established subdvision - where I am not one of the first few residents. Any thoughts?

amsa526: I have sold 3 in Phase 1 and 2. So far, they "should" break even when selling. Breland has been wonderful about not slashing prices thus far. They also have not negotiated in the past...a bit frutrating, but in the scheme of things, at least you won't have to worry about who got a better deal. (you or your neighbors). They are changing floorplans here and there, but overall the value is remaining. I love phase 3 with the treed lots. It's even better now that they are putting in the pool. That's a BIG thumbs up in my opinion! You can't go wrong with them. Fabulous to work with and they stand by their homes. I think Nate will be your onsite superintendent. You'll love him...he's gone over and beyond for my buyers. Paul, the onsite agent, has always been great to deal with as well. Best of luck to you!

It is quite confusing though ... but I don't blame anyone for this. I like Breland Homes.
Each community has its own specs and standard options ... so the two different communities may have the same plan ... but because of the different standard options - they will end up not being priced the same way.
Still has our sights on Asbury 3 or Brighton Farms ... but doing due diligence by looking at existing homes (<5 years old).

amsa526-You are doing the right thing by checking existing inventory. There are still a few deals floating around. I like Ashbury 3 with the pool and trees Happy shopping!
