I've been living at Middleton Place for over 7 years. The value of Middleton Place condos have dropped between $35,000 - $50,000 since 2008. My home has dropped $57,000 in value because I purchased it right before the housing bubble burst. Worse yet, the property values continue to drop by the month. The crime rate at Middleton Place has drastically increased in the past 2 years. Cops are constantly at the property arresting someone. It is scary just to leave your home at night. Neighbors are extremely loud. There are teenagers who play loud music in the parking lot at 3am.
I wish I could move out of here, but cannot since I'm $57,000 underwater. I regret ever moving here. The condo fees have recently increased to $412 a month. Yes, that's $412! Middleton Place does not have a pool, nor a park, nor a playground. We were also hit with a special assessment of $777 in addition to our monthly HOA fees. The management company ran out of money and couldn't cover snow removal. The best choice you can make is not to move to Middleton Place.
