Hi Linda,
Here is a link to the floor plan of that model. http://www.glhomes.com/content/plans/floorplan_196464A48BA34… The taxes on that home were $1743.13 for 2008. Those taxes were based on an assessed value of $65,000.00. As Mark stated the taxes have not been calculated yet on its current value. The taxes will be closer to if not more than $3000.00 a year. Homestead exemption is $50,000.00 off your tax assessed value if this is your primary residence. So if your homes assessed value was $180,000.00, the taxes would be based on $130,000.00. Here is a link that can provide you with additional information on homestead exemption http://www.leepa.org/exemption/hstd-otherexemption_info.htm

The listing agent has the HOA fees at 786.00 paid quarterly.

Hi Linda,

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

Here are a couple of other comparables in the same area that are less expensive.
