When making your next home puchase, make sure you are mindful of homes on private oads. I am sure evey state is different, but in South Carolina, private roads ae signified by blue street signs.
VA lenders like to see a maintained road. Someimtes, this may be easier said than done.
I have seen some agents go though the ringer trying to get homeowners on a private street to agree sign a maintenance ageement.
Maintenance of the street may seem like an afterthought, but it can become a critical bit of infomation when you go to sell the home in a few years, by limiting the kind of loan prospsective buyers can use.
