Hi. Would like opinions of new Everwood development in South Durham? It's located down the street from Blue Cross Blue Shield and Super Target. The price starts at $470,000. The area is booming with new subdivisions.

It's in a very convenient area right near Mt. Moriah road. You're a 2 minute drive from the Patterson Place/Indigo Corners/New Hope shopping area (Panera, Kroger, Home Depot, Carrabba's, Barnes & Noble, Best Buy, etc.), and about 5 minutes from I-40 on the Durham/Chapel Hill line. Also very close to get to Southpoint mall, and as you noted, the Super Target is close as well.

From what I've seen driving by, they seem to be doing a decent job with construction and the homes are definitely a cut above the usual subdivision build. Haven't actually driven on the property or checked out the homes, though. The builder does work in Hope Valley and Treyburn in Durham, too, which are two very high-end communities.

I have toured many of the model homes and they are absolutely beautiful: very large floor plans, generous rooms, plenty of space for a growing family. My concern, however, is that the price range is out of whack for that area. There are some nice older neighborhoods around that section of town (Marydell) that offer mature trees and established neighbors for a bit less. I worry about the resale value, considering the price range is out of reach for Durhamites. You would be competing with nearby Chapel Hill, that has better schools, plus relatively high Durham property taxes. However, with a community pool coming (and presumably a clubhouse, etc.) the neighborhood will offer more value-added amenities.

I've driven through Everwood. It's a lovely community. I love the exterior style of the homes. I have not toured the model. The lots also felt like they were a decent size.... seemed larger than .3... maybe closer to .5. But wasn't built out yet, thus I could be wrong about lot size.

I don't necessarily see Chapel Hill being a competitor. Yes, if you have 500K to spend you can get a home in CH, but it's unlikily you will find a new home that size, with that many upgrades for 500K. But if I was going to spend 500K + I would want a neighorhood pool. I did not see one there... it may be in the works though.

I also love the convience of the location.
