You will be part of a Homeowners Association and rules do apply, the biggest CON or Concern that most buyers are not aware of when wanting to purchase a home in this community is the type of Plumbing most of the homes have inside.
All of the single family homes built in Forest Ridge by the developer consisted of polybutylene pipes which is now a big red flag for insurance carriers and you will have a difficult time finding any insurance carries to offer you proper homeowners insurance as of 2023. Polybutylene Pipes were a less inexpensive option compared to using copper plumbing which most homes dating back to the 1970’s commonly used. If you are considering buying a home in Forest Ridge or many of the other nearby homes built in Davie that were built around the same time frame you will start to notice many of the homes still to this day have the polybutylene plumbing and those homes need to be completely replumbed if you want to have more options when shopping for homeowners insurance.
