It would be awkward to attend a community business meeting of retired persons and a large corporation complete with lawyers and other devious professional types.

Dolly do you meant lot rent and not taxes? How ours work is its 589.19$ a month lot rent. If you have a mobile home on a corner lot its about 15 to 20$ more a month.
I'm a real estate investor in this county and I'll give you some honest advice about Savanna Club (I'm not a realtor and have no agenda to push up values).
Savannah Club is a nice looking place with golf course, pool area, tennis, etc. The problem is that it is a 55+ community and these areas are traditionally VERY DIFFICULT to resell, especially in a subdivision like this one where there are MANY units available. In addition, these are mobile homes and that can pose a problem in Florida (we are prone to hurricanes).
So, it really depends on what your goals are. If you're looking to sell your house in PA and move down here to retire cheaply, then it's not such a bad deal. However, make sure you buy REALLY CHEAP and don't buy it with the intention of reselling it. I get calls on this subdivision on a weekly basis, and sellers are willing to unload them for under $20,000 (with them owning the land). Meanwhile, I have seen several realtors list these mobiles in the $100k + price range.
Send me a message If you're still interested in this subdivision. I can probably forward one of these sellers to you next time I get a call.
due to the economy) is that a couple of years ago the land owner (many of our homes are on leased
lots) declined to continue the option of "fixed lease for life." Any existing home owners could no longer
offer this option to any prospective buyer. In addition, this restriction will continue until all of the lots
have been built on and leased under the revised lot rent plan. This restriction was enabled to help the builder complete the Savanna Club project ASAP. This strategy obviously has not worked with only two sales in the last 12 months or so. It seems to me (and other residents) that returning to the original lot lease option
would improve and increase sales as well as drawing more prospective buyers into the community. Perhaps if prospective buyers (and agents) would keep this in mind and insist on a better lot lease plan than what is now offered there could be some incentive to revert to the original sales strategy.
There are many sales in Florida for many reasons, i.e, missing hometown, grandchildren, loss a spouse, etc.
I have 2 properties available for sale. One the owner lives in the Community and had one as a rental property, but now needs the funds and the other, miss their children and are relocating to their home town..
Happy New Year!!
