Your best bet is to visit or call the home owners association directly. They will best with most accuracy give you a run down of what it all means. They probably will email you documentation too.

Good Luck

Happy New Year!

Pineapple Park is a Neighborhood Association and is not governed by an HOA. They do not have pet restrictions, but discourage Pit Bulls and will call animal control if they run loose.

Vickie is spot on as it relates to the fees at Ibis and the special assessment that will run each member a little over $19,000 over the next ten years for the clubhouse renovation. If you are looking for a private club lifestyle and do not mind being a beat off the beaten path you will find that Ibis is an option you should explore.

Their entry level membership is referred to as Social Sports and like many private clubs Ibis is doing everything they can to attract younger members. While the overall real estate market is quite strong private equity clubs still are experiencing excess inventory and there are plenty of motivated sellers. Keep in mind you can negotiate the seller to pay some of the upfront membership fees as part of the purchase price. As you can see by the list price of 8366 Quail Meadow there are some very motivated sellers out there.

And the number show you why there are so motivated. While there are many different property types in Ibis there are currently 133 active listings in the community and over the past 12 months there have been 97 closings so inventory is currently at about 16 1/2 months which represents a very strong buyers market. In the general market we have about a 4 month supply to give you a reference point. That being said these numbers are improving and club sales have been doing better as buyers are seeing the value when compared to pricing in a non club environment.

If a private club is what you are looking for there are many options and as a buyer the most important thing is to fully and completely understand the numbers so you can make a knowledgable purchasing decision. Any Realtors® first job is to sit down with you and thoroughly discuss your needs so they understand exactly what you are looking for in a home, what locations will work for you so and set you up on a game plan to succeed in finding you the perfect opportunity. Inventory levels are very low and finding homes is a much more difficult task than it was a few months ago. If you would like to further discuss your particular situation and put together a game plan to meet your goals please feel free to contact me at your convenience for a complimentary consolation.

Best of luck and if I can offer anything additional please let me know.

your upfront equity fee, paid in cash when you take title to the house, is $50,000. Your annual membership dues will be around $15,000.

If you are looking for a country club lifestyle, you will enjoy Ibis. It is beautifully maintained and there's plenty of activity at the clubhouse.

However, if you don't want a country club lifestyle, but you want to be near golf courses, then there are several appealing neighborhoods that will work for you. However, it is likely that the cost of a home in these neighborhoods will be higher than the cost of homes in Ibis.

The reason for the lower cost of homes in country clubs is that most buyers today don't want to pay the extra fees that go with country club living. The result is that it is harder and harder to sell those homes.

While you may pay more for a home outside a country club, the home in a standard neighborhood will maintain its value. The homes in country clubs are dropping in value.

If you would like to email or call me and tell me what kind of home you're looking for, where you want to live, and a comfortable price range, I will be able to send you a list of currently available homes that you may like.
