Yes, the homes are overpriced and hoa fee's are the highest in the area. The neighborhood is clean and nicely manicured but the total cost of ownership is much higher than similar neighborhoods in the area. Also, if you are under the age of 65 you will stick out like a sore thumb. I would compare living in the "Forrest" to living in a retirement center or nursing home. To make matters worse, they are building many lower quality homes and strategically undercutting the price points of many resales in the neighborhood. We were lucky to sell our home at a 35% loss and escape Leland all together. We have since purchased a home in Landfall and love it. Hope this helps!
