What is LWR, CC, and CCE?

The Ambassador took us on a nice tour of the ranch. It's really nice. However, I think he didn't have his facts straight. He indicated that there aren't that many foreclosures or homes for sale. Upon arriving home, I've since discovered that there are a good number of homes for sale and an equally good number of foreclosures.

Despite that, I really like CC and CCE within LWR. And, in particular I like the quality of construction offered by Lee Wetherington and Gibraltar. However, they seem to be charing A LOT for a smallish home and a small lot. This concerns me seeing that the median home price has fallen slightly since last year in that area.

I'm not ruling this out. Just trying to make an educated and WISE decision. Any help you can offer would be terrific! Thanks!

So, just when I thought I was getting closer to make a decision . . . any help is greatly appreciated. I've narrowed my list of potential locations to relocate to Lakewood Ranch - Country Club East. But now I have some concerns:
- Narrowed to Lee Wetherington and Gibraltar. Worried about the price per square foot of a new build, no lot premium, no upgrades yet, and includes pool. They are quoting a price of approximately 170.00 per sq ft which seems high in this economic times in the housing world. Thoughts?

- I read that they both may have financial issues and that one builder is having challenges keeping up on paying his staff. The other builder had some issues with foreclosures.

I so want to make this work but don't want to get into financial troubles buy purchasing in before the bottom drops or from a builder that is overpriced and has financial challenges.

Any thoughts from my trusty Floridian experts?
