This is all a generalization of course, based on my experience selling mobile & manufactured homes in 55+ communities. As for the school taxes, at one time, the park owners (for parks where the home owners pay lot rent) DID have to pay those taxes when they originally bought the land, regardless of the type of PUD. However, people who buy homes in any type of senior community, are buying into a "lifestyle". That lifestyle does not include children. Even if their grand-children visit during the summer, they cannot stay for more than 30 days... actually, no children can stay for more than a total of 30 days during the entire year. In my own experience, the school taxes has not been an issue for the buyers. But it's only logical that they wouldn't be contributing to the taxes if they won't be using any of the school services.
