Hard to say. The information on this site isn't very reliable. You really need to be asking this of your Realtor! If you don't have one yet, you need to hire one. It doesn't cost you anything as the buyer. Your agent can pull up the listing in the MLS and verify what the HOA fees are, how often they are paid, what they include, etc. ... more

Misrepresented, New Construction home buyer, Newark, DE,
My husband and I were in the process of purchasing a home inTimber Farms from LC HOMES. We went through the process of putting down our deposit, picking out everything to make our home beautiful. We were excited and ready. We were not able to see the exact lot because the street was not built. The house was to be finished around the end of the year, maybe Jan or Feb. We were originally told Oct 2016, then the end of the year, then Jan or Feb 2017. We were told our deposit could be paid in increments as the house was being built, but then we were told it was due by 7/31/16. Once we made our $8,000 deposit, then the road was put in.

We could now see our lot. When we saw the lot and what was directly behind it, I cried. There is an asphalt company practically in my backyard. This should have been disclosed. My husband and son both have asthma and my mother-in-law (who will also be living with us) has COPD. You could smell asphalt half way up the road. THERE IS NO WAY WE COULD LIVE THERE. This was such bad business! You could not see anything from the construction site before the road was put in; it was hidden by mounds of dirt and trees. My husband asked several times what was around our yard since we were in the cul de sac. The seller could have told us, we could have made an informed decision to pick a different lot or not buy at all. And they refuse to give any of our money back. I've heard bad things about the Capanos bad business dealings but thought since this was an established neighborhood there wouldn't be any problems. Now we know why they didn't build homes there when the rest of the development was built.

I wonder who else has been stuck by them in this development buying a home on Asphalt lane (Marie Ct.)

Call the number on the For Sale sign ... that should connect you to the person with the most current information.

Chances are, you're looking at a house that has a purchase contract on it. Most agents don't remove their yard signs until the sale has been completed. If it is far enough along in the process to be shown as "off market" online, your chances aren't great but there's no reason why you couldn't have your agent reach out to the listing agent about the possibility of submitting a back-up offer. ... more
