|This is how a Washington Trace homeowner feels about Gold Key Realty.|
While I was doing this Amy was at the annual HOA meeting. Even though we did not close on the house, we thought that it would be prudent to go WOW. Lots of problems with the association. The homeowners were thoroughly pissed off at Gold Key Realty--the folks that developed this neighborhood. Among the problems.
- Pool in disrepair
- Clubhouse requiring a $1000.00 deposit for rental
- Workout facility crowded in disprepair
- The HOA dues were going up and services were going down.
- HOA dues were highest in the area.
- HOA dues continues to climb despite more paying homeowners
Neighbors were citing mismanagement as the cause for the raising of the dues. Here we are not even moved in and the area isn't even 40% developed but it's common facilities are at capacity--not a good sign. I am expecting some lawsuits against the developers soon. As for Ryan, they have stated the amenities of the neighbornood as a matter of factly, but need to be careful that Gold Key doesn't get them tangled in this mess. Maybe since Ryan has more extensive development experience, they can help them with this. Else, if these problems get out into the open, Neither developer will be moving houses.
Anyway, tomorrow's going to be a late day since I am going to the college for some advising appointment. Probably won't see the house until Friday.
