Hi Vanessa,
As others mentioned there is a land lease, but in addition to that there is also an HOA fee of about $92. It doesn't say the amount on the MLS, but I know it's about that price. When buying a home with a land lease you should consider cash as it is very difficult finding a lender to lend on these types of homes and especially these days. If this home was not on a land lease obviously it would sell for more money. Just be aware of resale as they are more difficult to sell in the long run. I have a client that just bought one last year against my advise and now the lease is getting adjusted, which we knew was going to happen, and it's going to cost her a lot more. Just make sure you find out when the lease can get adjusted. Usually it's every 10 years depending on the community.

Let me know if I can answer any more questions.

The property has been on for 32 days. Briarwood is a land lease community and it is $600+/mo. Keep that in mind when buying in that area. This home backs to McDonald which will bring some traffic noise so that should be considered as well. It does not show as a short sale but tax records may indicate it could be. The additional research is easy enough if you are interested in this home.

Let me know how I can assist you. In the meantime visit our local MLS and search homes at

32 Days. It is actually listed by one of my Sotheby's colleagues if you would like more information.

32 days, and it's neither a short sale property or a bank owned home.

Would you like to see the full MLS listing for this property?
