Hello - I saw on a recent posting in which the author warned someone to stay away from PotsNet. My parents are thinking of buying there in a new community. They are looking to sell their home and move there in order to avoid land responsibility (close to retirement age, leaving a home with 3 acres of responsibility!) Can anyone tell me why a poster might have warned against the community? We live in Pennsylvania, so we are not familiar with the reputation of the community. Thank you for your help

You will find a lot of information about Pots Nets if you write the word above in that "search" square.
One thing to note is that the land leases have risen up very high, and that was not a good thing for some of the people who live there. Four thousand, in four years I'd call a bit excessive. Thus, bringing the total to 8,000 in lot rent. Some are upwards to 15,000 or thereabout if I am not mistaken. The lots on the water.
It is beautiful, the grounds are well kept, the clubhouse is very nice........the boat docking is a good asset. Very nice pools......
It really is nice being by the bay. Just let your parents be aware that the homes although well priced, are on land that can run high in a lease cost.
This goes up higher( and faster) then any tax bill I have received over any of the homes I have purchased.
Then there is a yearly tax on your home, a quarterly sewer bill,........the usual things.
There are a few other places with more stable rises in the lease amount.
I'd take a ride with your parents, slip in there and visit, walk around........
Its not that long of a ride 3 1/2 or so hours from PA locations.

If your parents can afford the lot rent at Pots Net, they could purchase a home in a community such as Angola by the Bay and just pay someone to take care of the yard, even though those yards are very manageable.

I think there are a few places around..........one in the marina area.
But, Angola is great.......that goes under Lewes when you look for homes on line.
I think there HOA is up to 500 per year...But that is a drop in the bucket compared to other places. I also like the town of Millville a bunch, Ocean View...and that area.

I have lived in Pot Nets Bayside for 17 years. Yes the ground rent does go up. State taxes are paid only on the mobile not the ground and are cheap. Tunnel Poperties which also owns Baywood does an excellent job (almost excessive) of maintaining the grounds. We have security 24/7 365 days a year. If needed we are much closer to ambulance/paramedics and fire company than other areas mentioned.
Management is very strict on residents maintaining their lawns and buildings. During the snows this winter our roads were much better maintained than the state roads.
We have nice community pools,a good choice of restaurants in the area,and 3 major supermarkets within a short distance.
It's worth a trip to come down and see the different areas. for me Pot Nets.

Do an internet search on them and see all the problems there, not just on this website!

The annual LaborDay Long Neck Style celebration was another great success. That fireworks display beats many town's 4 of July displays.
