Well, from I'm told, most of the lots in here that were open and for sale have now sold. The next section they are going to "open" up will be right behind me. I'm going to lose my beautiful view. =(
We knew we would. We knew that eventually, a house would be right behind us. We were just hoping it would take a bit longer.
I'm not sure when they will open up this section for sale. The road isn't even there yet. There are tire tracks from hunters that go back in there to hunt dear, but that's about it. So I'm assuming they'll be paving and putting in drains and curbs. But than again, I may be assuming too much. You never know. I would think that a road with drains would be on the top of the list, so people could drive back there and pick lots. We'll see. If that is what needs to happen, it may be later in the spring when they open it up. Who knows. A girl can hope! We were hoping for a year with nothing going on back there (that would put it in July). It will be what it will be. We'll see what happens. It'd be nice if they finished the sidewalk beside my yard that has been a mud hole since NOVEMBER! Maybe they are waiting to do it and the curb for soon-to-road all at once. I just wish someone would tell us something. I have a dog and 3 kids. Muddy yard is NOT good. Especially when the original plan was to have all this done back at the end of July/beginning of August. I think we've been patient. I guess I'll have to shoot the PM a email.
The lots behind me are smaller (50-55 ft lots I believe). I'm not sure how they are going to fit these 2200+ sq ft homes on those sites. That will be interesting. I'll have to check the bi-laws. They may be able to build smaller homes (ex. Sienna or Florence). It will be interesting to see what happens. As of right now, my street is all 60 ft lots. And the only houses really being built are the Venice, Milan, and Naples. No one wants to put the Rome on one of these smaller lots. (The Rome is the biggest house allowed on these smaller lots. We do have a section of 80 ft lots. You can build the Milan, Naples, Rome, Verona, Dorsey Hall, James Joice, and few others on those lots, but like I said, they are almost out of lots).
I suppose it's a good thing we have so much going on in here. The prices for the size of these homes are low. Interest rates are crazy low. So now is a great time to buy. And the more homes we get, the closer we get (hopefully) to getting that pool put in.
I'm still not happy about that. We were told in the beginning we'd have pool THIS summer, that the funds were there and put aside for it. But I suppose something changed, because most of the people after us were told "hopefully 2013". I'm guessing that they want enough homes in here to pay for it. That makes sense, right? But again, I'm only guessing. It could be that the bank developing the property has decided NOT to do the pool since they are hoping to sell to a new developer (something they have been trying to do for a while a now). Who knows. I guess when construction starts up there, we'll know.
It's hard to believe they aren't going to open up some more of the bigger lots first. Those are selling like hotcakes! And the road is already paved and everything up that way. But, I suppose they have plan. Maybe they are wanting another builder to come in and build on those lots. *shrugs* It'll be interesting to see what happens.
Over all, it seems like we'll have a pretty full neighborhood soon enough.
