I sure do hope you and your husband move here! Charlotte is an amazing city, and is only growing!
The packages that new builders are offering for new construction are as advertised! Typically the price you see online will be the base price (which includes the finished, livable home, microwave, stove, blinds, etc) and you can do a few additions in there. Just count on adding between $5-$10k in the purchase price for all the sweet additions you would want! But overall, it isn't a gimmick or a bait and switch.
If you would like, shoot me an email or call/text me and I will send you some ideas as to what I'm talking about. Look forward to working for you :)
