The homeowner's association is a joke. The "pool" is run by a single family who probably makes easily 100K a year with their "combined" salaries. They act like the gestapo, you can't touch another person while swimming in the pool, you can't kiss your spouse on the cheek, or you risk getting kicked out. The "patio deck" of the pool is not designed to be cool in the summer so it gets quite hot and it is cracked and showing wear.

12321 Brighton Bay Trail South in particular is a horrible home, horrible history, no one in their right mind would want to live there. The owner killed himself, his daughter who was too rotten to take responsibility for it while he was alive, now has it. Good luck to anyone who lives in it.

$120 per month. Feel free to visit to register. You can look at different neighborhoods and see descriptions that contain neighborhood information such as HOA fees.

Hope this helps!

I work short sales and I can tell you that a Short Sale that an agent is advertising as "approved" can be quicker if, you come in at the price that was approved in a short time (within 30 days typically) from the original approval. Most often a property will have a 1st buyer that gets the process started and then a 2nd or even 3rd buyer that comes in and buys the home in a lesser time than the first buyer waited before walking.

Some lenders are approving quickly when the seller has had a failed modification. I had one that Bank of America approved and I got closed in 3 months from the contract because the sellers had been working with their lender for a long time trting to modify and were denied. Bank of America is trpically taking many months to even review files.

If you work with a Realtor to make your purchase, make sure that your agent asks the Listing agent for as much information possible. There are no gurantees with short sales. If you have a timeframe, you should look at Bank Owned or Traditional Resales. An educated motivated seller will price closely to short sales and you can get a great deal without the wait. Best of luck to you.
