Hello I was down in Raleigh and liked the Centex development Highland Creek. Does anyone have any info about it. Do they live there or like the homes, any complaints? I am thinking about buying there within the next year or so but would like to know if the price they got was negotiable or did they offer a lot of deals after you added your name to the email. Thanks for the info.

I sold one of the single family homes about 2 years ago. We ALWAYS negotiate on new construction in this area, no matter what the onsite agent tells you!

Before you sign anything...remember, the onsite agent works for the builder/seller and you should have your own buyer's agent to represent you.

As far as WHAT incentives you get, depends on how fast homes are selling in the n'hood AND if the home is an inventory home or a pre sale and how many sold that month in relation to what they had hoped for!

Thanks Vicki, I have an agent but it seems to offer something everyday. When you are there in person they didn't seem like they wanted to give anything but $3K and a low interest rate but they I get emails offering 50% off upgrades later on down the line. I am waiting to see what else they offer down the line but just wanted to hear from people who live there if they got better offers.

I do think the incentives vary from month to month. It really depends on what they have sold and how many they WANT to sell. One thing I have also noticed is that all new construction will raise the price one month and then offer more incentives so you have to keep on eye on what is being offered versus what has been offered in the past. Sounds like you know this! And when you are ready to buy, have your agent check to see what has been given and at that point, you'll have a better understanding of what you should be able to get!

I don't live in Highland Creek but live across the street from it. The area has very bad traffic in the morning and afternoons, however they are widening 401/Louisburg and that should alleviate the majority of the issue. One thing I like about it is you are 15-20 mins (depending on lights and time of day) from the capital building and 5-10 mins from farm fields. Forestville Crossing, the little strip mall looking place on the other side of the street, has been empty for quite some time however. It seems they are having difficulty finding tenants. I'm not sure what that particular area of Raleigh will do at this point. If Louisburg expands and that ushers in a whole bunch new development it could be good for the area (ie a new Capital Blvd.) or it could be very bad.

I live across the street too (Wheelsup and I might live a few houses apart and don't even know it!). Traffic can be a pain but hopefully that will improve once the 401 widening is complete. That area is also close to Wake Forest, Rolesville, and Knighdale. So although Forestville Crossing has been slow to develop there are still many things a few minutes away. I think the area will continue to grow once things pick up since there's a lot of undeveloped land in the area.
