They are very happy with the schools. too. I would most certainly continue to show in this area , all sales have been down a bit , but are moving again . There is one home in that area that has a little trouble selling, but it is by the deadend on one street , nothing wrong with it , just hasn't found that one it will take to sell.
Pricing homes is part art and part science, so when you do decide to "put the extras ' in the home you are building, try not to over shoot the area , You might not get it all back in the end. Just like putting a pool in, do it because you want it and love it , not for resale! Take Care!
Real estate is like stock in most cases - not commodities. Hang on to it and you have a terrific investment. Sometimes you can trade your real estate in short intrevals and do well, but for the most part - you'll need to hang on to it for several years......except when you buy in a buyer's market. You know, buy low sell high? Selling high happens in a seller's market..........and that will happen again!
if your house fits your needs, you can afford it and you like the area....go for it. Don't live with regret, nor in fear. Your home is the best working investment you can have.
Crystal Lake is a new development and there have only been 4 sales in the development in the past year, all new homes not resales. There have been 13 resales in the nearby area. If you would the details about these resales let me know and I can email you the specifics .
