    Then look at the price and you will see why I was stunned.
    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 wonder if brokers are disclosing these issues to potential buyers as they would ethically, and possibly legally, be required to do so.
    I respectfully disagree with you about not purchasing until the lawsuit is settled, Riggo. I only recall one broker mentioning a lawsuit at an open house I went to, and that was because I brought it up, and the broker knew less than I did about it. 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"?

    If that were only the case E. Unfortunately, Willowbrook/Willowcreek is slated for next year, the South Golf Course clubhouse is coming up and another 3 or 4 golf maintenance buildings are in the works. And, the board just approved a $40K study to see how and where they can do another round of "turf reduction projects." 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.

    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.
    It does seem crazy to pour good money after something that seems to be fading away.
    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.

    Yeah at that price I doubt you'd ever be able to make a profit if you ever want to sell.

    There is a condo for sale at 10637 W. Tropicana Circle (between Del Webb & Talisman).
    The price is $172,500 - Coldwell Bankers.
    There is a variety of flooring - tile, carpet, laminate.
    No separate laundry room. The washer & dryer are located at the end of a room.
    One shower just has a curtain. Closets are small.
    Realtor did point out the new wood cabinets in kitchen.
    Take a look.
