That's a great idea! Unfortunately, each adult community is governed by theirs own Board do Directors and their rules and by-laws change often. We try to post most of the fees in our adult community section of http://FlanaganRealty.com and our local board's site, http://OceanCountyRealtors.org, has some good info as well.
As far as adding on, some communities will allow additions such as Florida rooms, as long as they are approved by the architectural committee of that community. Is there a specific community or communities you are considering?
As you can see from the answers below,each Adult Community has different rules set by the Association. You can add on to your home after approval from the governing board.
I live in Holiday City in Toms River and love it here!! I am originally from Bergen County and have worked with many buyers from North Jersey. Please contact me so that we can discuss setting up an appointment to visit the various Adult Communities in Ocean County. I have given many North Jersey buyers "the tour" and I would be very happy to show you around the Communities.
Some of the information you request was never intended to be PUBLIC information and very often has distribution that is controled by the community and/or the management company. I know, you think everything should be provided to you FREE. Sorry. In some cases you will need to contact those who have access to the data. What you want to believe is FREE was paid for by SOMEONE.
If you are a serious buyers, you need to use serious data sources.
