The place seems nice enough. Lots are only like $5k. What's the deal?

Is this lot served by Masthope's sewer system? If not, the lot may be unbuildable because of soil conditions that won't support a septic system.

Yes, it says water, sewer and electric already to site.


But that is but one example I found. There are many and the prices are low. Are the association fees astronomical or something, causing people to just want to let go of the lots?

Great place to build if you like a community with rules and dues. Lots of things to do and is well run. Prices being low may reflect the location in the community or lot quality, (level etc.) The other draw back I have found is the availability of basic services such as grocery, bank etc. It is not far from Hawley, but the road is a pain in the a$$ with deer, traffic, turns and potholes.

I don't know if it's the same case in Masthope, but in The Hideout it is very expensive to carry a vacant lot. You still have to pay community dues, water, and sewer.
