The 2008 taxes on this property were $1783. This is a fee that is paid annually or quarterly or you can include it in your monthly mortgage payment. If you claim FL as your full time residence then you can receive a Homestead Exemption of 25K and if you are over 65 then 50K off the assessed value of the home. This can significantly reduce that annual fee.
HOA is paid quarterly: $786.00
