The space rent at Royal Pines is $506. It includes pool, laundry room, rec room, bingo and donuts, postal delivery and more. There are no taxes. I just paid insurance, registration and home warranty policy. Also installed beautiful new carpet. If you would like to see more photos, contact me at I can also finance the purchase if you like.

I bought it in 2008 for a friend of mine who got a job here and in a couple of months changed her mind and left town. I rented it for $750/month happily until recently. Need to move on.
