STREET SALE SUCCESS

WOW – that street sale was a success. Lots of traffic, lots of people set up and lots of great items for sale. This community sure is looking great and the street sale was showing that as well.

Even if you live here and do not set up, take a walk and meet those who are set up. Beautiful people for sure.

Here is hoping next year is just as good as this year. Remember that they are “normally” held about the 3rd Sat in July. Just keep that in mind, mark your calendars and watch for the flyers.

Property Values in the future

When you purchased your home here did you intend to sell in the future? Life throws us many changes, some good and some bad. Some cause is to move from either a new addition to the family where you need more room or a passing of a spouse which means you can not take care of it and it is time to move on. No matter what the reason we all hope to sell our home for more than what we paid for it.

So what effects our property values? Current markets and selling prices of like properties in the local area. This means a like type subdivision with like homes, layout effects our prices just as much as our home values effect their prices.

What are some of the things that will effect the price of your home?

a. clean, good curb appeal as in landscaping, trees, well maintained lawns

b. vinyl, brick front, brick sides, brick all the way around

c. inside can be many things such as wood vs carpet, finished basement vs not, granite tops vs other types. There are so many factors to add value to the home.

For some reason some get very defensive when they hear we have restrictions and an HOA here. Those restrictions and HOA were set up to help you, not the developer in the long term. One day the developer will move on and the HOA will continue to keep those restriction in place to help EVERYONE.

That is when the Board of Directors steps up to the plate and keep this street looking like the street you picked to buy a home on. Many may not understand that having an HOA, having restrictions, and following them 100% helps every homeowner to hold those property values up and that is the one thing each homeowner can control for their own home and help each of their neighbors as well.

We can not control the markets but we can take care of our homes. Doing so means keeping the drive ways and from clean from clutter, trash cans out of sight, clean the black/green mold off the roof and sidings. Keeping your yards mowed (the entire yard). Putting up the proper fencing. None of these things in the restrictions are hard, expensive or time consuming for anyone. So please consider you own home and do what you can to help yourself and your neighbors.

The ARK that is coming to Grant County may also help as many new residents may be coming to the area for new homes. Nothing draws more in than a street of great looking homes. We are sure many of you purchased here because of how nice the street looked. Our goal is to ensure it stays that way for everyone to get the most bang for their bucks they have invested in their homes.

Entrance Maintenance

FYI – mowing of the entrance is contracted and the HOA President of the Board of Directors has been paying for this service along with the utilities, flags, supplies & mulch since the entrance was set up approx 15 years ago.  Residents are not charged any for any of the costs to maintain the entrance at this time.

Pulling the weeds at the entrance if NOT contracted and you can if you so wish to do so, pull some weeds at the entrance to OUR subdivision. If you do so please DO NOT remove any items planted or add to the planted items as this is being managed at no cost.

MOWING is REQUIRED

Please mow your back yards. Not sure what is happening but there are a few homes who are only mowing the front yards and not the back. A lot with a home on it is required to keep the yard mowed.

(1) All Lots shall be kept clean of debris, trash and junk. All Lots upon which a house exists shall be mowed and trimmed on a regular basis. 

As you can see it DOES NOT say anything about the front or the back yard, so that means you mow the ENTIRE yard. Failure to do so will result in a notification from the HOA.

NOTE: This also keeps down the mosquito, tick, flea and snake problems in the yards by keeping the grass cut. There are companies who will mow for a nominal fee if needed. If the yard goes too long without being mowed the city or county ordinances may require they mow it and send you a bill.

Trash pick-up & Lights

If any of you feel the desire to do so, please feel free to take on the task of cleaning up the trash at the end of the road on a weekly basis. Pop cans, bottles, general trash.

If you see the light are out up front – drop a line in the comment section and let us know. We already know one is not working but will be working to replace both of them with new LED lights that do not take bulbs. Initial cost is higher but overall cost is less to operate and no more bulbs to replace.

Thank You
