Lago Vista is a very nice place to live. The residents are very friendly and welcoming and the clubhouse is extremely nice. The floor plans are very open and make the homes feel larger than they actually are. The resale homes may be a better option because of new construction upgrade costs.
Just Visiting hit the nail on the head as the construction of these homes (for the price) simply suck! That pretty much also goes for any upgrades you decide to get such as carpeting, appliances, "low E" windows, etc. We replaced all our windows within 3 years of moving in. Also plan on paying approx. $8,000-$9,000 in taxes on a $300K home and $100 monthly water bill. Bet you didn't see that coming! Is Lago a quiet, peaceful community, Yes! Is it worth the cost? You decide.
Barry, make sure you give us an update after you actually live here for a year.
I am not yet a resident but plan to visit this community in the next week for early 2016 residency. I cared for my wife at home for years as she fought Alzheimer's disease. I now must downsize dramatically from my 4000 sq. ft. home in Arlington Heights where I have been president of our Homeowners Association for 18-years. First of all the first reviewer should return to school, second he should learn how to properly evaluate a home, and thirdly he should learn proper respect for his elders and understand the true indifference of age.
I have been a resident since 2006. I LOVE this community! The clubhouse is beautiful, and the community is quiet and peaceful. There is always something to do if you choose to join in, or enjoy the beauty and peacefulness of your own back yard!
Chuck and I have lived at Lago Vista for a few years now and we love it! The first review on here prompted me to speak up for our friendly community and I'm not sure what the person means by we shouldn't be so "OLD"! We've made a lot of good friends here. We do a rotating monthly dinner party with a great group of people, we always have someone to meet up for coffee or just go for a walk, play some cards or go to the pool. We're happy and content here!
Very friendly community! Fun activities if you want to participate. My mom loves going to the clubhouse. Very quiet and peaceful. Large models. Lawn care is great and snow removed very quickly.
I was visiting for a few weeks to help my Mom, I am 51 years old. Some of the residents are very nice and some look at you like what are you doing here? Kind of a mix feeling on this community. In 4 years I could move here, but don't think I would because of that feeling. I feel my Mom's house is not build very good. When the winds hit you feel it in the house, and the windows that come with the home, not strong enough for these winds here. For what she paid for this house and the association fees, people need to be not so OLD and be more welcome like. All in all I have visited nicer communities.
