Shopped for homes here, monthly fee quoted at $1100/month. Ridiculous compared to other neighborhoods plus home values don't seem to appreciate there at the same rate as other neighborhoods. Too bad. They should disband the HOA and give homeowners a chance to sell at fair market value.

Great homes for the money. Many are already updated and others can be -- good bones! Excellent facilities, great staff and a challenging, well maintained golf course. Nice residents and more activities to participate in than you can imaginee!

Those "sunk" non-refundables are considerably higher now. Around $20,000. I'm trying to find out why.

Houses for sale here are of decent price, but need a lot of work. The BIG surprise is to find out that to move in here you MUST pay $10,000 up front to the HOA, and you never get that money back even if/when you sell. BIG drawback, plus a VERY high HOA monthly fee. We bought elsewhere.

I have been looking at homes here and am considering one right now. I was surprised how large of a home you can get here for a great price. The one I like is about 2000 square feet for $125k. Seems like a great deal in a golf course community. Anyone have any extra input on this community? It could be prefect for me!
