Hidden Meadows is anything but hidden

With the surge of activity surrounding one of the most popular communities in Northport, Alabama, we’ve discovered one thing is for certain: Hidden Meadows is A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G but hidden. New construction is booming in this subdivision, and more often than not, these homes in Hidden Meadows go under contract before construction completion. If homes are going under contract before completion, what does that mean for you as a buyer? It means that if Hidden Meadows is the community you want to be in, reserve a lot as early as possible! This allows a buyer to pick a floor plan, paint colors, flooring and much more.
