SG: Don't take a checkbook.

Gives you time to get away from the rabid hard-core salesmen.

We were pleasantly surprised at the total lack of high pressure, or actually, any pressure. The facility has just started construction (still doing grading, etc) and is already fully subscribed. (We were expecting something like time share presentations.) First occupancy seems to be two years away.

The buy-in is such that my checkbook winces at the very thought of writing a check like that. Think of buying a house.

We like the concept, and appreciate the value of living among our socio-economic peers. The built-in social life sounds good. Better than being the old grouchy man who lives alone down the street?
