I have been showing and selling recently in CCR. It's a neat community which appears to be thriving. After speaking with a homeowner and employee of CCR it sounds as if the community is doing fine as far as the health of the HOA. I'm sure you could get their budget data directly from the POA office as it should be available. They have a great community website by the way. I would be happy to represent you as your Buyer agent there and in the surrounding areas.
Yes there are foreclosures there and some short sales. It's about the same as most areas of North GA. It makes for great buying opportunities in CCR. I have really shown some great homes for very affordable prices in the last 2 months there. I just closed on a fannie mae foreclosure there too. It was in good to very good condition. Not all foreclosures are in poor condition by any means. There are lots of homes in the 100k- 180 range that are really quite nice and a good buy for 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, possibly a garage or basement or both!
