To visit, take Roi Residents living at Walnut Glen, a Residential Homes of America, Inc. (RHA) community located in northwest suburban Island Lake, have the best of all worlds: a beautiful natural setting surrounded by acres of forest preserves, spacious and affordable single-family homes and the added benefit of paying no SSA (Special Service Area) fees. In communities that have an SSA, the SSA is requested by the developer to a municipality for funding the construction of roads, underground water and sewer lines, curbs, sidewalks and other infrastructure and earthwork improvements within a new neighborhood. The municipalities issue bonds to pay for these improvements over a period of up to 30 years, and in turn, assess the property owners within the SSA community an annual charge to pay off the bonds. In short, a builder with a community that has an SSA can either pass the SSA costs of making these improvements onto the home buyer, in terms of a cosdy SSA fee mat is paid by the homeowner every month for up to 30 years or choose to absorb these costs and offer the home buyer a more affordable monthly payment. This is what RHA has chosen to do at Walnut Glen, so homeowners at tiiis community do not pay an SSA fee but still have a manageable payment structure. By not charging rneir customers the SSA fee, RHA is saving them thousands of dollars every year, which over a 30-year period, can really translate into big savings for home buyers, on average, at least $20,000 on each home at Walnut Glen. SSAs can amount to as much as $30,000 plus interest, typically paid over the course of 20 to 30 years. In a commu- nity that charges an SSA, the homeowner is billed via a special tax assessment that is added onto their annual property tax bill. This additional amount, with interest, can be upward of $200 per month and amount to over $64,000 over the life of the assessment, with over half that amount being in interest charges, that are in most cases, nondeductible.
