One person's beautiful is another person's overdone. I would have run out of that place very fast from too much detail. I do like the patio homes and I was inches away from buying one that was perfectly done. They are cozy and private. I balanced privacy vs having a view. I went with a view.

I'm thinking that may be because no one expects anything significant to come of it. If I found a second property that was a great deal right now, I wouldn't hesitate to buy.

Emily: I certainly hope nothing of significance comes from the lawsuit. However, I have spent a good portion of my life being utterly amazed with legal outcomes when the case seemed to be a slam dunk or was completely without merit. One thing we can all agree upon, the lawyers will profit regardless of outcome.
Yes, I do agree. The events of the last year or so have really shown us all that you should never say never.
Ok, I'm not a golf fan, but every time I drive past any of the courses, they do seem to be busy, especially the one in Phase 2, the name escapes me now. So it seems to me our courses are being used. ? Once they finish up with the last couple of projects, maybe we will cease being "all golf all the time"?

Those run 800K or more per so hold on to your hats as the board chases these "good ideas" to save money.
The problem is each board looks at it in a vacuum of their term rather than a composite total over the long haul. If there was a long range planning committee with everything on the table, it would be an entirely different picture.
Sun City=Community before corporation, people before politics.
Is there no pushback from within the community on the amount that is being spent on golf - a game in rapid decline? So if one were to buy into the community, the vast majority of the $3500 PIF fee is going toward golf? Talk about the need for long range planning. This is like investing in Royal typewriters.
OK, that was good for a chuckle.

Yes, all reports and indicators say that golf is a dying sport, but why is Topgolf thriving.
Topgolf is an entertainment center with a 3 story driving range, much different than the real game I am sure.
There is a Topgolf being built here in Thornton, CO and the anticipation by all ages is fantastic. This place will be packed, at least to start with.
I don't golf, but have many friends that do. The hope I hear from some of them is that places like Topgolf will spur interest of the younger generation. Time will tell I guess.
Okay, I'm laughing at the Royal typewriter comment again.
The condo (OT of the post), sold for 164k.
