I wish I would've bought in the Hills, so I would say continue to consider it. The neighborhood is very good overall, but obviously has a couple of people that like to voice their opinions and concerns. I'd prefer that over a neighborhood that slowly and silently rots..
and no, didn't go there today. I'm going with my wife tomorrow when she's off. It's better that way.

Don't "not consider it" but do let the HOA and your realtor know that the HOA has a negative rep that is weighing on people's decision to buy in the neighborhood or not. Be informed and voice your opinion but don't let it stop you. There are some great people here, the location is great, schools are great and we need more sensible people to constructively voice their opinion to the HOA. Welcome to the neighborhood...if you buy here.

Thanks wc2005. I will definitely take that into consideration.

Good Evening- As you know we have lived here since December of 1999. I cannot remember if the HOA has ever arranged for a Roll Off Dumspster so Residents can dispose of large items, brush, etc.

Has it ever happened? I would like to request to the HOA that something like this be done 1-2 times each year. There is no doubt that more than one would be needed, at least I would think so. I know that Bexar County can arrange a Household Hazardous Waste Disposal Day here in Westcreek. City Residents can dispose of their waste at the Culebra Road Site just inside 410.

*Not to sound like a smart aleck but this would be great for those that have to dispose of all the old fence boards

I wasn't aware of any issues in the Hills. It always seems like most of the homes in there are well maintained; looks like a quiet section that you don't hear much about. I know some of the areas around there also have larger lots and more trees.

From the seven years I have lived in Westcreek; we have enjoyed the area and our friends and neighbors. We always had the feeling that this is home; even after being transplanted all over the world with the military. It's what you make of it. Our property values have remained strong and consistent; and for a large subdivision - we do have the "small town" feel. If you become a part of your new community and reach out, with all that our area offers; I think you would enjoy Westcreek. As stated by others here on CD; if you choose Westcreek as your home - Welcome!

I've never heard of any issues in the Hills either. I meant issues with the HOA.

Very excited to be coming out to San Antonio tomorrow. Will be there until Monday evening. We will be driving around looking at neighborhoods. Westcreek is one of them, as is Legacy Trails. I feel like it's Christmas Eve! This will be our very first house. We've owned our 3 br condo here in H-town for over 6 years, but we've never had a house. I am so psyched. It's been a long time dream and I can't wait!

Well, don't drive too slow by my house. We're quick on the trigger here.
