What is the name of the condo association? I'm intrigued. I haven't sold that many apartment style condos.

La Posada, Summerlin NV, 89128. A subsidiary of The Howard Hughes Corporation. These were poured floors, which is unusual for that style..maybe that was part of it, they didn't want people hammering into the concrete upstairs.....but I also thought I saw that at royal palm village in Phoenix, and I know some people put wood down, where there was carpet on the stairs, and it creates way more neighbor noise in an otherwise soundproof design....th style lofts. I'll look later and get back with you on that.

I just looked at the La Posada CC&R's and it is indeed in there. After thinking about it, the restriction makes total sense. Thanks for pointing that out. I'm currently looking for a condo for a client, and on one they put an offer on previously they wanted to replace the carpet with tile. I will have to watch for CC&R's like that. Unfortunately, not all associations CC&R's are readily available online and you can't trust their word on the phone.

I'm sorry, AZ has got nothing on GA for termites.

In my experience even the nicest "laminates" look dull and fade very quickly. That said, I have had good luck with engineered hardwood here in the valley.

I can confirm I've seen similar restrictions.

No kidding! Those southeastern ones will eat your house in a month. The ones around here take decades to do any significant damage.
