Unhappy Homeowners are Suspects in Vandalism

The following information was provided by the Strongsville police department

 

An angry homeowner is apparently taking aim at a builder in the Avery Walden development.

Police were called to Calderdale Lane Saturday because signs were once again damaged.

For the third week in a row, someone has written on the Pulte signs at the front of the development -- changing the price on the signs from $350,000 to $850,000.

A report said the current homeowners in the development are upset because Pulte is now selling houses for less than what they paid.

The damage is typically being done on the weekends, the report said.

You people live in Strongsville, not Ritchfield. Get OVER IT. And your development is off Webster Rd. where homes are valued at $200,000 if that. If you wanted to be upper class you shouldn't have moved to Strongsville.

AJK- A rather snobbish comment, don't you think? And just where is Ritchfield? Must mean Litchfield in Medina County.

Lyn- I agree. AJK's comment is a bit out of left field. What's his beef?

Lyn & Dan, just saying don't you think the people in that development are getting a little carried away with changing the price of Pulte sign to higher values because they paid too much for a house in Strongsville. That's being SNOBBISH!

I agree with the upset homeowners. The one and only upscale neighborhood in all of Strongsville and developer allows Pulte to build. Very poor decision. No one is buying those ugly cheap Pulte homes there. The houses in Avery Walden are all custom built to high standards and quality and it surely shows. The 2 Pulte homes stand out like a sore thumb. AJK thinks the people in the development are snobby? When you work hard, save your money and build a custom home that is $800K then a monopoly home gets built next to you causing your home value to go down, then you can speak intelligently. Richfield is nice but in the boonies, there are people that like Strongsville due to the amenities close by. Be happy there are beautiful developments like this in Strongsville, kind of balances out the hillbillies that live here.

Blame President Obama for the falling home values. If the original home developer in Avery Walden could sell $800,000 homes they would, but they can't due to our lousy economy. They have had to resort to selling the lots to Pulte just to recover their costs for the land, putting in the streets, etc. My home is worth the same now that I paid for it 17 years ago. What can you do?

Maybe its the police chiefs fault. Perciak had to give him a golden parachute job so the taxpayers could help make the mortgage on a 600K house.

I believe the housing market crashed in 2007, not during Obama's term. Additionally, a developer doesn't sell homes, he sells lots. Great comments though.
