HOA is about $380 annually, and the Regime is about $200 monthly. That will cover your exterior insurance, exterior maintenance, grounds keeping, etc. I also believe a Buyer is responsible for the .5% transfer fee for the home owner's association (not entirely sure on the actual amount, would need to be verified). Any golf or social membership in the neighborhood would be additional, of course.

Search the Internet and ask questions. There was a nasty lawsuit between the HOA and original builder.

From what I was told by RE agents.
When the lawsuit was filed, prices plummeted.
The suit was settled and prices skyrocketed.
There was a great window of opportunity to buy.

Arrogant, snobbish neighbors. And it better be "inside the gates" or you'll be viewed as lower class by the Dunes West elite. Dunes West has a hidden problem with crime and drugs, and prostitution. One of Mt P's 2011 murders was a highly publicized one in which a homeowner was choked to death by a pimp when he wouldn't pay the hooker. Highway 41 is heavily congested. Like most of Mt P...not worth the money by a long shot.

Ellington is outside the gates and you are becoming a one trick pony when it applies to Mount Pleasant.

I believe there was a settlement in early 2011, but I also believe there are still issues as to how the settlement money is to be used/applied.

I do not think the issues there are over plus a stigma is tough to get rid of. As I advise, read up on it.

Many will loan money even when a active lawsuit is in progress. Depends on the suit. One disgruntled person sueing an HOA does not really make for an issue....LOL

Whether the stigma is tough to get rid of is one thing.
But some units dropped to 60-80K with the suit and went to 120K after the suit.
I read up on it already
