Industry Expert Review

One of the few communities in the area with sidewalks on both sides of the streets and plenty of street lighting. Sounds like a minor thing, but buyers should always check as these are not available in all communities. The HOA is pretty reasonable at $120 per month (2014) for all that the community has to offer. In most of these communities residents should inquire about the cost of water as it varies based on location. Here you can expect to pay about $70 per month for water. The community also features parks, open spaces and green belt areas which are appreciated by the residents.
