Property Owner Reviews
Real estate developer Michael Ross has been a celebrity in the press, however, not the kind he would want to be, I'm sure. Rarity Communities had nine golf and lake real estate developments planned in Eastern Tennessee. With financing frozen and sales almost non-existent in 2008 and 2009, Rarity Communities were plagued by bad timing, sales to investors/flippers and unrealistic optimism.
All nine Rarity Communities have either gone bankrupt or have pending foreclosures filed against them. Rarity Bay and Rarity Pointe are still operational. To ease your mind, please consult with an attorney before purchasing at Rarity Bay. Despite these issues, sales have not stopped at this beautiful Eastern Tennessee golf community.
