I stopped by this weekend cuz I was still on the fence with this market. What I found out was Rosewood lower their asking prices. How does this effect those early buyers?

Like you I was wary of the 'old neighborhood' but I overcame that after thinking what this community will be 3-4 yrs down the line. Cisco Field is opening in 2011, new Globe Food plaza and Irvington will have a makeover soon.

Regarding school it is not the BEST but I read that Blacow is decent and they have good scores if you break the scores down to subgroups.

I went to visit Rosewood and really liked the houses and floor plans, very well laid out and the construction is superb... however, I took a look at the school district (Blacow elem, Walters mid, Kennedy high) and it is not good. I plan to buy a house with my family and live there on a permanent basis (no move in for the next 10 years at least) and this concerns me.

Also, not to put the wonderful people who live in this neighborhood, but it just seems to run down. Rosewood seems to be a "bubble community" enclaved in a neighborhood that just does not seem to be as nices.

Sorry, don't mean to be mean or negative, but just wanted to express our concerns and why we decided not go buy there.

So I went back over the weekend and looks like the price has gone up. Good call for the early buyers. I think there is 2-3 homes left for this release. 2 homes are at T-intersection hmm I'm not superstitious but is this a problem?

Hello Roy,
Any property that is a right fit or not depends on
The following questions
1. Is this your prime residence or investment property?
2. For how long do you plan to hold the property?
3. Are you comfortable with the payments?
4. Are you borrowing any down payment?
5. Are you pulling our funds from IRA or any other source?

My understanding is that if you are buying any home for your prime residence,
within your qualifying guide lines, you like the floor plan, not too far from your work place,
if you have children, then in a reasonable school district, then you can’t go wrong buying a home in any area.

Feel free to contact me for further information.

I feel any home depending on location, the amount of time keeping the home, Price etc... is definitely a great deal in this market. LOCATION, INTEREST RATES and PRICE... being able to afford the home are the most important factors on any real estate investment ,any time of your life.
