I live in a neighborhood where most of the houses look similar to this.


Would that be considered cookie cutter ?

1. Las Vegas, NV where 48% of home are currently in foreclosure.

2. Suburbs of Front Range, Colorado, ranked #4 in foreclosures.

3. Charleston, SC ... hmmmm are we seeing a trend?

Atlanta. The suburbs are VERY cookie cutter. And many of them are on 1+ acre lots where the owners basically drive to the mailbox.

I always see Orlando being put down on this forum? Is it really that bad when it comes to mediocrity?

Yes. The physical landscape of Orlando is very, very monotonous. There's a lot to do there and my sister and a few friends live there (so I have had fun there; it's not all bad), but the development that is going on there is appallingly bad. There are only a few areas in and around Orlando that have any redeeming character.

I agree about the repetitive style of homes in many newer subdivisions...but the lots are nowhere near 1 acre - even a 1/2 acre lot is a huge space for one of those cheap houses to be sitting on. The yards may look really big, but realistically most suburban homes sit on smaller lots than you would think...1/4 acre or less.

I don't know about anyone else, but the myth that people in the suburbs don't walk is just that - a myth. The residents walk all around those neighborhood, walking their dogs and visiting neighbors. Of course, each neighborhood is different, but the ones I've seen and experienced have a lot of pedestrians.
