I AGREE TERRIBLE PLACE TO LIVE.
Management clearly gave brilliant reviews to upgrade previously poor ratings. This is an honest review from a current tenant. I've lived here for a few years, and there aren't many who actually like living here contrary to what the reviews say. It's more like a welcoming into hell. It's in your best interest to source a new trailer should you wish to reside here as the reconditioning of the old trailers are sub-standard, and botched repair jobs. They do as little as they can to refurbish. I have friends who live in some of the used trailers including myself. There are many issues. Mold, lack of working outlets, failed air-conditioners etc.... Some trailers have previous roach infestations. These trailers are sold to us as is. The community rules on their website are not followed by management, or most tenants. The only thing the management cares about is whether the lawn is mowed, trimmed, and your trash can is left out a day later. If you don't abide by those rules on Friday they will leave you a notice threatening to fine you, and mow it themselves. If it's not cut rain, or shine by the following Monday a $40 fine. It's a $10 fine if they have to put your trash can back. They have unreasonable pet charges up to $20 per month per animal. The vibe of the community is predominantly Hispanic instead of an equal balance between all races. Soliciting happens all the time even though no soliciting is allowed. I’ve even had someone try to sell me tamales from their truck. There are Constant visits from roofers, and various sales people. There is no security, noisy neighbors, and screaming children in the streets. Surely with all the money they collect in fines they could afford a security guard? Basically, there's no enforcement of most community rules. The houses, driveways, and streets are jammed full of cars and people. There is constant revving of engines, squealing tires, parties with sometimes 20 or more. There is frequent loud music, and midnight basketball games. Noise ordinances are never enforced by management! There have been vehicles stolen, and vandalized. Kids dangerously play in the streets with no parental supervision. If you try to drive past some kids they will not move, and will just stare at you. Furthermore, if you think you have peace of mind with having a storm shelter in your community that's a false sense of security. There are 4 shelters which hold approximately 40 people each. There are 250+ trailers on site, with very large families housed in the trailers which I might add is more than what is allowed by HUD. There are not enough shelters in the community to accommodate everyone, and the last major storm people held the door closed from the inside so only chosen people could get in. Other tenants were left to get pummeled by hail. Management advised when I moved in that they do criminal background checks on everyone. How can a background check occur when a social security number is not required, or no credit is needed to obtain a home? No telling what sort of people we actually share this community with. Management seems to care less about issues, or the welfare of their tenants. There are also frequent rent increases for lot rent, and insurance. Management pretends to care, but they fail to deliver all the time. Welcome Home Communities only goal is to make money, and that's all. This place is an absolute joke, and disgrace. I'm ashamed to call this my home.
