You'll want to know that homes in this area are not yet served by the county sewer system, so you'll have a septic system. You also will be obligated to disconnect that system and connect to the sewer system when it becomes available in the neighborhood. There is detailed information on the Phillippi Creek Septic System Replacement program at this web site: http://sewers.scgov.net/HOME.aspx . If you study the web site, you'll learn about costs and anticipated scheduling for the project.
It's just an opinion, but I think that it might be a wise move to invest in good homes in the areas that have not yet been connected to the sewer system. I'm guessing that these homes are discounted by more than the cost of connecting to the sewer, and that they may appreciate nicely after the sewers are installed. Again, it's my personal opinion, but I think that you could research comparable homes in nearby neighborhoods that are already connected to the sewer system, and judge for yourself.

In the midst of a growing job market, beautiful landscapes, amazing beaches and fun activities -- Sarasota is still tops for your dollar.
Learning the traffic patterns for the amenities you most desire -- is important. Finding the right neighborhood is simplified with the help of a professional Realtor.
Great location and very conveniently situated.
Like with any properties, wether it is a $80,000.00 property or a 4 million dollar property, research as to be done. What is for sale in the immediate area, what has sold and for how much.
I would be happy to put you on my automatic email list that sends you information daily if you wish about the activity in the area with pictures and information.
Thanks for the question and feel free to contact me if I can help.
