Ryan Harlan-Expert Broker answered:
Hi Delores,

There are a few non hoa new home communities to choose from but most national builders will have an hoa in place. Also many lots to build your custom home without hoa. I can provide info if needed, just drop me a line.

In regards to the builder's price being set in stone, in my experience it depends on the builder. With recent new home sales being up nationally / locally 10%+ most builders in the area are mostly offering design center credits or incentives and closing cost assistance for new builds ( CC if using the builder's preferred lenders ) and not a whole lot of negotiations in terms of price. BUT they do offer more price negotiations on spec homes or existing inventory, and a good agent can get some other bell's & whistles thrown in the contract.

Its well know that everyone wants a great deal or the best purchase price when they buy a new home, but keep in mind that if these builder's largely discount one or more homes in the community , it could depreciate the other home value's and current appraisal prices, which would reflect negative on the current home owners of the community.

Please provide answer feedback.

Thanks Ryan

Good afternoon, Allison:
The best thing to do to find out about flooding issues is to look up the info on and to call your insurance agent.
Details on flooding for 9921 Windrow Dr. Indian Trail, NC 28079 are at Union County Geographical Information System also has flood data: If you have a full time agent with a Masters degree in Planning with Finance and over two decades of experience, working for you, you will likely do better in negotiations. I'd be pleased to provide that service. If you appreciate this answer, please give it a thumbs up, or if this was the most helpful answer, please say thanks with a best answer click. ... more

Good afternoon, NetNet31:
I don't see any MLS listed property being offered as rent to own. There are only a few good reasons to purchase a home on this basis and there are many potential pitfalls with rent to own scenario. If you decide to go this route, you DEFINITELY ought to be represented by a licensed real estate broker who EXCLUSIVELY represents your interests so that you are protected.

Hi Kimberly,

I have just relisted a home in the Piedmont School district. It's between 5 - 10 minutes from the elementary, middle and high schools. It has approx. 2,000 sq. ft. and sits on 5.26 acres with lots of road frontage, and the lot is partially wooded.

If you are still looking, I am a long-time resident of the area, and I feel sure I can find you something to meet your needs.

Mom answered:
Question was: Some people do not know there is a mention Stanly & familiarity is connected with real estate listings....for instance..Stanly is not identified as being the country area of Stanfield..Oakboro...Locust..etc: great home values and beautiful land. It is as if: Stanly area is forgotten...a hidden gem with all the conveniences.

No..I am looking to re=locate: I have just been aware for years of this lack of awareness - as so often I am asked: Where is Locust? If you mention Stanly is automatically thought of Stanley.

This is something realtors can be more aware of to promote the area.

Hey Mamamia!
Congratulations on your decision to relocate, I welcome you to the area!

Waxhaw and Indian Trail are excellent choices to live. A few positive notes for both is that they both boast good schools. The homes in those areas tend to come with a decent size lot as well. You also get more home for the money being further from the city.

If you like the one stop light towns, I'd recommend Waxhaw. It is rapidly growing and becoming more desirable, which would be good for future value.

If you are not currently working with a REALTOR, I would love to help you with your relocation!

Michael Madonna answered:
Hi Jen,

You really want to look for a neighborhood and home that meet your needs. If amenities are important to you I would look at Brandon Oaks which features tennis & basketball courts, pond, playground, 2 swimming pools, walking trails and more. If you are looking for more of a starter home, Holly Park would be a good place to look. Holly Park features lower home prices than Brandon Oaks, and also has less ammenities (ie no pool) but does have a pond and walking trails. Both neighborhoods are near shopping, schools, grocery store, etc. I specialize in Indian Trail, NC and I would be happy to assist you with any other questions you may have. Please feel free to contact me with no obligation.

Best of Luck,

Mike Madonna
