Friendly neighborhood and that's about it. Most of the neighbors still stick to them selves. Days were you met all your neighbors and got to know them are dead. Most play the "I don't speak English" game then you hear them talking in English to each other later on. I've tried being the friendly neighbor but most just want to stick to them selves.
You HOA mostly pays mostly for the yard service. Repairs are mostly done by the home owner even if it's the outside. If we do have a large repair job you'll often be slapped with a huge assessment fee. They get about a million a year from home owners. What are they doing with all that money? Should be enough to cover these expenses even after paychecks.
If you have issues with garbage collection you have to contact management. If the garbage truck spilled in your drive way you get to pick it all up. If you live next to a parking strip you'll often have litter from passer bys appearing in your yard/driveway. There is no number to call for disputes. Most people won't pay for the larger can and there is often over flowing garbage every week at the curb side. Windy days causes this garbage to end up in your yard it's now yours and you get to deal with it. The company pays for the overage so homeowners could care less about how they toss things out.
Morris Management isn't all that great. Their professionalism could use improvement. They tend to quarrel with you and try to blame everything on the home owner irresponsibility. In several cases that's not true and they're just trying to protect their reputation immorally. When we changed companies there was no change of management explanation letter just a new letter with a lot of "I don't knows from everyone." When they first started they often didn't send letters in a reasonable time frame for major projects. I think after a couple complaints they got better.
I've lived here two years and they keep sending tri yearly coupon books with the fluxuating price differences. If you miss a payment it's all hell. If you end up over paying they will happily keep your money and argue with it to reimburse you for overage. They either give you a month or two weeks at best.
Parking spaces for guests are virtually non existent because all the home owners insist on hogging them. Even the disableds and the spots labeled "visitor" and "disabled". They do tow after 72 hours but I have yet to invite more than two people over at a time because neighbors can't park in their drive way.
Several of these houses we later found out have Plasco piping. In 2012 Plasco underwent a huge lawsuit. Due to faulty piping. The hydraulic heating systems are a bit confusing and we went through about fifteen plumbers before we found someone knowledgeable enough to work on the system.
The only perks of living here are the gated community and all the hard work the yard workers do to keep a pristine look. If you live near the front I hear there's a bit of front yard crime but that's about it. I wouldn't go raving about this place. It's a home you own and that's about it.
Packages get miss delivered and the house they are left at now belongs to that owner. Stolen basically due to the ignorance of the delivery individual. Packages often get frequently stolen as well. Do keep that in mind if you live here.
I also found when my mail box fills up the mail person just continues to cram it into the box instead of bringing it to my house. All too often packages will be bent when it says fragile or do not bend on it. During rainy months my mail box leaks and my mail denigrates in my mail box. I asked if there is anything they could do and there is nothing. I may line my box with a plastic liner like they do in cabinets to save my mail. Or give up and go back to a po box.
