    I am a former owner/resident who sold my small home in Jubilee 2 yrs. ago because the COL in the area continued to increase and there were other issue I didn't care for. For instance, Lacey in general has seen a huge bldg. boom, which has brought lots of huge warehouses nearby (noise), more people, apt. and subdivisions, even a new middle school less than 1/2 mile away. The noise from nearby JBLM military base often become a bit much at times. They routinely are flying planes and helicopters overhead at a low altitude, and when shelling practice takes places on base...my whole house would shake. All in all....I loved the community, people, and activities when I built my home in 2005....but by 2016 the glow had worn off. FYI: friends I have kept in touch with say that although it's a sellers market there and home prices have increased dramatically....so have property taxes. One friend who only has a 2BR/2 bath home will soon be paying $10k a year. More than she paid when she lived closer to Seattle.

    The Jubilee trail is now open and a lovely walk to the beach or enjoying the view from the table and benches.

    When Shea builds the last house (soon) the income from the (approx $800) fee charged for selling a house will end. We have been told that the monthly dues will go up every year for the foreseeable future. This was something they could have seen coming and did not tell me before buying.

    Beautiful community, wonderful location and gorgeous view of the Puget Sound!
  • (Resident/Homeowner)Rating:

    Perfect in almost every respect. However the private path through the woods to the Puget Sound beach is closed due to a washout. Since it's a private path, the city of Lacey takes no responsibility for its repair, and the Jubilee Community Association apparently considers the project to expensive to undertake. Since the path has been, and still is, a selling point on social media, the stalemate for its fix is a disgrace.

    We loved Jubilee the first day we moved in and that was only a month ago. The people here are very friendly and the surrounding area are so lush and green. Lots of beautiful trails to enjoy. Wish we had discovered Jubilee sooner. Our thanks goes to our 55 Places Partner Agent!

    A wonderful community with great amenities. Surrounded by large pines and near Puget Sound, it's a great setting. It's in a rural area but within a few miles of urban facilities. Great tennis and pickleball courts. Quality entertainment in the huge lodge.
