There are some great homes being built in the middle of the areas your talking about. I've worked with some of the builders and have to say you can find that perfect home. Builders will go that extra mile to help you buy your home. Assistence on closing costs. Special items you want in your home. Fence around your yard and more. You and your wife should right your wish list and what your requirements are and call your local Real Estate Expert. I've worked with three different builders within this last month alone and have been very happy with the results. Clients are happy. Of course I'm enjoying the process also.
Decatur and Madison are not that far apart. As a matter of fact, from 72 area in Decatur, you are only talking about 15 minutes or so to Madison. The Mooresville area is nice, but pretty rural. It just depends on what you are looking for. I would love to help you & save you time on the road & on the computer searching. Tell me what you are looking for, or maybe we can schedule a meeting time at my office when it is convenient for you. In the meantime, if you would like to search the local MLS, please visit my website @ http://www.TheWilsonRealEstateTeam.com & click on MLS Search.
