How are these fees being listed on realtor sites? Is it actually broken out as a separate line item, or is it a case of finding a new home and then adding $18k to the list price?

While I still plan to tour the area next month, I am getting more interested in other locations (or avoiding new constructiontion) due to the fee.

I'm sure its baked into the advertised price as the impact fee is paid by the builder/developer when a building permit is issued. You might want to ask and confirm when you're looking.

With most of the listing I've viewed, the impact fee is included in the price, not separate.

The impact fee is ONLY for new homes and builders will wrap it into the cost of the house.
Better to have a one time impact fee than your property taxes going up every year to be able to fund growth and schools.
If you want to avoid the impact fee, buy an older home.
