Tarpon Glen is a 55+ Mobile Home Park. You lease a site on which your moblie home sits, so there is no property tax to you- you don't own any property. The Mobile home is considered personal property, like a car and the Title you receive is from the Motor Vehicle Dept. Realtors are licensed to sell "real" property, meaning land must be involved, whether it is "fee simple" where you own the land your home is on or in a "condo" or "coop" situaltion where their is ownership in the land.

I would suggest you go to Tarpon Glen or look up their website to see who to contact if this is a community you are interested in living in. This is why you don't see an MLS number. We cannot sell this property.

When buying a mobile home some considerations should be:
1. How old is it? Insurance is difficult, and insurance companies will not insure after a certain age.
2.When buying in a park, what does their rental rate cover and how much has it gone up in the last few years/
3. When buying in a park, without land, remember like a car, your value goes down and does not appreciate like property.

The plus side is that you can often get a home for relatively low costs, you just need to weigh it out and see what it is really costing and what are you really getting in the long run. Good luck.

The county assessor will have your answer on the taxes, I believe their site is http://www.pcpao.org/.
