Wow, I just saw this question. Wish I had seen it back when you originally asked it. My father was a custom home builder and our definition was this; A transitional floor plan would have all of the amenities that you would need to live on the main floor, but still have rooms on the upper level. A true transitional would have at least one main floor bedroom with an attached bathroom, the laundry room, kitchen, & family room would be all be on the main level at a minimum. That way, the owners would transition from the upper level to the lower level as they age. Most transitional floor plans do boast and open concept. Just saying that an "open" floor plan means that a home is transitional to me is not the correct definition. ... more

Hi Jason,

Depending on what type home you are seeking and your timeframe, there are several developments in progress or at the land development stage -- secluded subdivisions to mixed-use neighborhoods. If you are currently in town or would like to plan a discovery trip, I am happy to offer you one of our complimentary area tours. Please call or email me directly.

Take care,

Hi, I live in downtown Hillsborough and have owned and managed a Building and Real Estate Company for over 30 years. KB homes is a production company and to compare a Florida stucco exterior home to a home built in Kenon Grove is like camparing apples and oranges. Being a custom builder for most of my life, I am not saying KB Homes are perfect here but we have a good inspection department and they are held to the same standards as any other builder in our area. Get yourself an experienced Realtor and hire a quailified private home inspector before you think about buying any home new or used. Don't fall in love before you know the details and don't assume based on speculation. I now specialize in Real Estate solutions for past and future clients. and would be glad to use my expertise to help you find your next new home.

Susan Crawford answered:
Hi Alice,

To piggyback on what Michael said, HOA dues are not always higher in condos. They can be...but not always. Case in point: Cedar Creek Condominiums in Hillsborough has an HOA fee of $100 per month and Braddock Park Townhomes in Hillsborough have an HOA fee of $106.25 per month. In the case of Braddock Park, even with the higher fee, it does not cover structure insurance and each homeowner needs to have a regular HO3 policy that is just like a standard detached home. However, Cedar Creek has amenities like a pool currently. As of right now, there is a pool "planned" for Braddock Park but it is up in the air as to when that pool will be finished.

Hope this helps clarify a bit. Please let me know how I can help.

All the best,

Hi Anne
There are currently 4 active on Summit, one is conting. on the close of another home. All the active ones are being sold by their owners, not any foreclosures I could see. Sometimes this happens where you will see 2 or 3 or more home for sale very near each other, without knowing each persons motivation it's sometimes hard to assetain why, I don't see any problem with that area in general.
