What's up? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Fences-cost-EXTRA-in-new-Scottsdale-subdivisions-What%27s-up/526692/ So we've been out to several new Scottsdale subdivisions in the Carefree/North Scottsdale area, Taylor Morrison, Toll Brothers, etc. and while the prices advertised on the sign say 600,000+ I'm finding that it doesn't include the fence! They say it's because you have so many options in fencing that they just don't offer it. That can add a ton to the price... these are not custom homes where you buy a lot and build on it... they're basically tract homes on nice lots. I expect to pay for upgrades to the house itself but I feel this is nickle and diming people. Is this the new trend?<br \><br \>5 replies Fri, 31 Jan 2014 21:51:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Fences-cost-EXTRA-in-new-Scottsdale-subdivisions-What%27s-up/526692/ 2014-01-31T21:51:00Z y r homes selling for cheap 3.500 dollars http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/y-r-homes-selling-for-cheap-3-500-dollars/521692/ 5 replies Sun, 15 Dec 2013 23:09:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/y-r-homes-selling-for-cheap-3-500-dollars/521692/ 2013-12-15T23:09:00Z How long is the inspection period exactly - and does it include weekend days? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-long-is-the-inspection-period-exactly-and-does-it-include-weekend-days/354239/ 29 replies Thu, 17 Jun 2010 15:31:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-long-is-the-inspection-period-exactly-and-does-it-include-weekend-days/354239/ 2010-06-17T15:31:00Z (Moved): Why have you not posted my review of Karen Pokorney? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Moved-Why-have-you-not-posted-my-review-of-Karen-Pokorney/511045/ This discussion has been moved to the following location: <a href="http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Why-have-you-not-posted-my-review-of-Karen-Pokorney/511043/">http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Why-have-you-not-posted-my-review-of-Karen-Pokorney/511043/</a><br \><br \>0 replies Thu, 12 Sep 2013 17:25:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Moved-Why-have-you-not-posted-my-review-of-Karen-Pokorney/511045/ 2013-09-12T17:25:00Z Real prices? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Real-prices/491478/ I see homes listed in Scottsdale Arizone for 3000 and 4000 dollars.&nbsp; Is this for real??
