No there is not one yet, but I am sure someone will start one as the neighborhood grows. The developers have set several guidelines of restrictions for the neighborhood & when a hoa is started the hoa could add there own restrictions. When a house is listed the hoa fee is $200.00, but no there is not a hoa yet.

It's Great, but several builders left & now it seems the developer is letting any builder in, so you have cheaper houses mixed with more expensive houses, but I do understand he is just trying to make money. The park will be off oxford next to Stonebrook part of Pleasant valley phase 2 with a walking trail along the creek.
Its a Buyers Market

Buying in Pleasant Valley subdivision might not be a wise choice in this economy because the subdivision is very slow at developing and may not develop for a long long time which could hurt your resale value when you got ready to sell your home. Just someting to consider. You would be better off buying in a well developed subdivision inside the city limits where homes sell easier and in a shorter amount of time. It's a buyers market so try to get the best value for your dollar. I wouldn't pay over $80/sq ft for any home in this economy in this area. Patience is the key in getting a good buy on a house.

Try looking on LBAR.COM . You can look at all the homes for sale in Scott County. I have a friend that bought a house in Pleasant Valley and she is disappointed because of the very slow development of the subdivision and the present resale value of her home. I don't know your price range but their are many good buys on homes in Georgetown for sale. LBAR.COM is a great site to look at houses for sale in Scott County and many other surrounding counties.

expand your options. there are a lot of newly developed subdivisions in georgetown, but most are in/near high traffic areas and you can reach out your window and touch your neighbor. yes, buyers are looking for a more modern upgraded home but there are plenty of older homes in well established neighborhoods with large lots and no traffic noise. check out in the county, for example ironworks estates. lots of large older homes with big private lots. good luck!
Offer Much Less

Houses with larger lots usually cost more money and more grass to mow. Rocky Creek subdivision has had some good buys as well as Paynes Landing and Paynes Crossing subdivisions. Try to be patient and get a good buy so when you try to sell your home later on you will have a easier time selling it. Don't be afraid to make a much lower offer than what the sellers asking price is. I recently bought a house in Georgetown $25,000 less than what the seller was asking for it. Remember that it's a buyers market. Good Luck!

I have a friend that lives in pleasant valley and he doesnt seem to like it that much but hes afraid he cant get his money back out of the house. I think the lack of houses being built there scares potential buyers off. Its not the greatest location either.

Kevin Payne of Payne Homes is a douche bag.

Their website is outdated and hes a little bitch. Leaving Pleasant Valley hanging and deserted. He never leaves redneck land known as Richmond, KY.
Not So Pleasant Valley

Pleasant Valley is very deserted looking. The subdivision looks like a sign of our economy. I feel sorry for the people that bought out there thinking the subdivision was going to grow and they would get equity in their homes. It would be hard to sell a house in "Not So Pleasant Valley" in this economy.

Who is your friend? I may know him. I feel the same way about getting my money back out of my house. Location is good,but only if you work at Toyota.

There's really only one "well developed" subdivision inside georgetown city limits where a person can find a house under $80/sqft, and that's Mt. Vernon. The reason houses are cheap in Mt. Vernon is because nobody wants to live there anymore, but houses don't sell fast. Therefore, they sell cheap.

Next up would be the school side of the Colony, but I don't think anybody can really call that a "well developed" subdivision since there are still tons of empty lots in the back. Haverford apartments is was what killed the Colony, just like Scroggins killed Mt. Vernon. And like those apartments and duplexes are killing Elkhorn Green subdivision behind Taco Bell and all that. The fact that the Colony never quite got finished didn't help property values there, either.

What I'd suggest is to stay away from any subdivision that's not completely finished (or you may end up with a surprise 'Haverford Place' apartment unit in your backyard), and also to stay as far away from high volumes of rental units as possible.

Just don't expect to run across many houses that meet those criteria for $80/sqft -- especially one that's move-in ready.

I agree that it is a nice subdivision & I'm glad to see that more houses are being built lately.
