Dear James: Thanks for asking about CVC. My replies are embedded next to your questions below. Please keep in touch if you have more questions.

Two questions, I interpreted your > > site to say that the lots are $200,000, lots with large houses $330,000. > Is $330,000 the lot + house, or just the house? The lots cost about $200,000. Once an owner buys a lot, they can build there own home on it according to there needs and ability. The design will be subject to community review. The cost of the house would of course depend on its size, amenities and construction plan. When we complete infrastruction work at the end of the summer each lot will be buildable with water, sewer, and utility service to it. Our architect, William McClay has designed three different single family homes that can be built on the lots. > Second question, you say that 2 houses are set aside as affordable > housing.

Are the lots cheaper? > We do have two affordable units. One is being built this summer and is already taken. The Units will be the same construction and amenities as all other attached units in our community. They are 2bdrm attached units in a quadplex, so they are among the smaller units in the community. Their affordability is regulated by the state. A local housing organization may offer the qualified buyer help with a downpayment. Any buyer must be registered and approved through the state organization that qualifies buyers for affordable housing statewide. As with all affordable housing, Common Pastures is selling these units at below cost to make they qualify as affordable. The excess cost is born by the remaining members of the community.
