This is an unusual ownership situation.
Most parks are owned by an entity or person, and the unts lease their "parking space".
The ownership of the park by the unit owners means much more long term stability, because the owners probably won't sell their land to a developer - at least not unexpectedly.

Hi Margaret, At Whispering Meadows the the park fees are approximately $200/month. The additional fee that many owners pay as part of their monthly fee to park includes to what is referred to as a "land fee". Whispering Meadows is a co-op park. The residents purchased the property in 2005 and each was charged a share fee of $28,000 and each resident actually owns a share of the land. Residents were able to finance this amount and it came out to approximately $190-$250/month in some cases (equating to the approx. $390/month another post has mentioned). Other residents have paid this land fee off in full and pay only the current park fee of $200/month. If you are interesting in purchasing a home here it is important to research how much of the land fee has been paid, what the balance is, if you would be eligible to assume the remaining financing if any, etc. etc. If you would like Buyer representation at no charge for a purchase here or anywhere else in the are please feel free to call or email anytime. There is currently for sale a 2 bedroom 1 bath unit listed for $51,900 and a larger 2 bedroom 2 bath for $84,900.
