So it's not what they say it is, You the buyer pay for it in a higher house cost, and lastly, Marketplace will only send you to lombardo eventhough they work with other builders becasue lomabrdo pays them to steer you to a Lombardo Community.....which seems to be a violation of Fair housing.
I agree with the other realtors that have answered your question. I encourage my clients to work with a realtor, even when they are considering new construction in a planned community. Regarding your kids leasing their condo, they will want to get as much information as possible about the rental market in the area where their condo is located. Again, working with a realtor or property manager to help them to assess the market trends will prove helpful.
I would be happy to answer any questions. In addition to real estate sales, the company I work for also provides property management services.

You are right to be concerned and a skeptic. Hopefully, someone with experience with Market Place responds. I've had 1 client who did sign with them and wasn't happy. With the current mortgage market being what it is rental properties are leasing rapidly as long as they are priced right and in good condition. Your kids should consider hiring a Realtor and lease the property on their own. That way they are in control.

I understand your concerns and you you are correct in seeking additional information.
I work with investors who buy properties to rent. If you would like information on this please contact me by phone or email. The broker I work with does handle property management also.
Thanks for using Trulia
