Average Rating for this Community

To E.C.: In Homestead, as other neighborhoods, clearing snow is not an immediate process. We have very specific rules on most everything here, including snow removal. I must ask, why your parents had to leave their house and hit the road immediately after such a dangerous storm, predicted days in advance? Once the snowfall ended, it melted off the sidewalks and roads in less than a day. Your parents and their neighbor wanted a faster process, so the neighbor shoveled. As a resident in Homestead, I support management's decision and they followed the policy for clearing snow. The neighborhood would have wasted money to clear snow which melted quickly. At no time were the roads impassable in an emergency.
Homestead offers far more services and does them better than nearby seniors neighborhoods. The monthly fee here is low due to good management and judicious use of resources. I am very pleased to live here and do not expect a neighborhood to meet my every need.


Beware the extremly high cost of water and sewer service here. My husband and I researched the cost of home ownership carefully. Never did I think to check the water bill. The neighborhood is very nice, as are the amenities, management team and neighbors. The water and sewer bill is shocking. Literally $100 for 3000 gallons of water per month (protection program NOT included in this amount). This is more than double the cost in Bordentown Township. Homestead is billed at a higher rate than surrounding neighborhoods. I'm investigating why this is. Other neighbors reported bills of $250+ per month. Water and sewer charges should be considered carefully prior to purchasing here.


Homestead is a great community for me because a lot of my friends live here too. It's nice to be so close to good friends and to be able to spend time with them. I am involved in lots of the clubs like line dancing, quilting, painting and cards. It's a fun place to live!


My parents live here, both retired with health issues. Association and property mgmt decided not to plow or clear ANY snow from Nor'easter Quinn. Their 87 year old neighbor had to shovel himself out to leave the development. It's an absolute disgrace.
