Hi. I was wondering if anyone knows why all the people that live in Spring Meadow Estates are sellign their houses? I have a slight interest in that development, but it appears that there are about 10 people selling. is it because of the adult community's are are going to be built around them?
It's because they have an existing flooding problem. When RR Drive and Frontgate are finished, it'll only get worse...

Besides the "old" person home being reason #1, the next reason is the traffic and than the flooding. The houses were built ok, but again they were thrown together fast. There are better developments out there.......with more space, less traffic, and less "everyone knows your business".

They are extending Ronald Reagan Drive out to the Q-Mart for the 400+ unit age restricted community called Front Gate. That's a main reason why the homes are up for sale in Academy Place for peanuts and Spring Meadows also (although Spring Meadows does have other problems.)- the road is going to become a major throughway. And the poor folks at Academy Place are going to have all that traffic rolling 50 ft from their front doorsteps.

Parkside and Brayton Gardens I & II are definately the developments to look at if you're buying a home in the area. I have friends in both developments. They love their homes.

I just drove through BGII on Friday from 309 and down Dovecote. I couldnt believe how many houses had zero or very poor landscaping. That makes the house look horrible and hurts the appearance of the neighborhood. How can you spend 300-400K on a home, then put a few hundred into plants from Wal-Mart. Another example of these people being over extended, but hey....they have the impressive THP house (read with lots of sarcasm). And I think I saw a cluster of mailboxes in one area. Are you kidding me, you have to drive to pick up and drop off your mail? I will also assume there is no association in there. From Tollgate road I can see 2 houses that look like hell. One has a motor home parked on the side of the house, and the other a boat. Again, it just devalues the entire neighborhood.

Such nit picking. Maybe these familys travel alot and don't have time to maintain it. How much would you complain if the garden was overgrown? Maybe they have allergies. Maybe they don't like flowers. Who knows and why do you care? These neighorhoods are far from run down.
I think the devolpment looks nice. A motor home and a boat just shows that they have family time on the weekends.( geez we can spend time with the kids and go to the lake or we can pick weeds out of our gardens that we don't really want or have time for so the Q town busy bodies will be happy)
Why don't you people mind your own homes instead of those of all the new people who move into the area. These people are happy and like their neighborhood. Why don't you focus on your neighborhood instead it would be better than putting down another persons .

Actually, I keep my trailered boat at an offsite location so as to not "devalue" my neighborhood. As a boater with a family, this is definitely an eyesore which I would not bring upon my neighbors. That goes for campers as well! Sorry I guess I am the only considerate neighbor is Quakertown!
If people go and buy a $300-$500k house, c'mon and "buck-up" for a storage spot for a boat, camper, etc. There is no need to keep these in a driveway unless you have a house on 10 acres!

Boats...We are in the same boat, no pun intended. I have a large snowmobile trailer that I pay to keep off site as to not make my neighborhood look like crap. I totally agree with what you are saying. If you spend 20 or 30K on a luxury item such as a boat, you should be able to afford the storage for it.

I know many people from different neighborhoods. Have been to most of the ones listed. Been in the houses and walked the communities. I like brayton gardens 2 the best out of all of them. Of course, I live there so i'm biased. Still, all very nice neighborhoods, but so many positives for brayton gardens 2. Quakertown is a good place to live, glad I'm here.

Your biased??? Nooooooo. I had a contractor here who worked on those places, and he told me he cant believe people actually bought them. THP slapped those places together with bubble gum and duct tape. Its just not normal to build a house in a week. And where is the distinctiveness? Every single house is almost the same. Going to be very to sell one of those places.

Yessum, dem dere big builders with their newfangled power tools, computerized blueprints, cell phones, and site managers. It's the devils work, building a home in a fortnight. Can't git afigured how they do it; twasn't even a soul from my church or the church down yonder invited to the barn raisings. It's witchcraft I tell you.

They build them so fast because they are cookie-cutter homes, just like all the other developments around here...they all look the same.

Ok back to the real subject here.

WORST NEIGHBORHOOD: Spring Meadow hands down.

The mass exodus has definitely been going on there for some time. House values went up, and the smart ones left that neighborhood.

Look at all the for sale signs!

And oh yeah, OBAMA for President!

I want to thank you for bringing your IQ of sub 50 (That means less than 50) to this forum. If it wasn't for ignorant lowlifes like you how would we know who the smart people were?

Well, you have definitely proven you're smarter then me by writing "sub" and then explaining it. I would think a smart person would have just said "less then" instead of "sub". Wouldn't that have taken less time and negated the explanation. Is this whole town retarded?
