I stopped in the bp gas station while my wife went into to purchase a lotto ticket. A young man approach my car and wanted me to buy some junk he was selling. When I told him I was not interested he got upset and called me, "an old white mother---ker." I no longer stop or shop in Marion Oaks anymore. ... more

You should just make sure that you're following all of the rules that will come up. If you're committing any violations, you could end up in more trouble than the shed is worth. I think it's a good idea to try to get your shed installed, but it may be difficult to actually make it happen. The best advice I can give is that you should do all of the research you need to make sure that you aren't breaking the rules.

Hi Gary & Marie,

Sorry I couldn't get back to you sooner, I was out doing some home inspections in the Ocala and Dunnellon area. Seems like I am always working these days :-). I see that Karen already sent you a response to your questions, but I wanted to just add a little more information for you, in case you are not familiar with the Marion Oaks area. The property that you inquired about is in Marion Oaks, a very large (over 5 miles in radius) community, located off of Highway 484. I was just in Marion Oaks this morning doing a home inspection for a lender. The majority of Marion Oaks does not have an HOA, however there is one small section of Marion Oaks that does. There are no age restrictions there and the majority of homes are on individual septic systems and public water (some homes have a well for irrigation also). As far as your question about crime, there are local Sheriff web sites that we can refer you to that have that information for any area. If you are not already working with a Realtor, I can set you up with an email system that automatically emails you as soon as a new listing comes available that meets your search criteria, and it comes directly from our local multiple listing service (MLS), so you are getting the information in real time as soon as it is entered. That is the best way to get the best home, at the best price for you. It only takes a few minutes and if you are interested, I know just about every area in Ocala and the surrounding communities. I have been a Realtor for over 13 years and I am a Veteran, so I am very well educated, patient and understanding of your wants and your needs. Hope to hear from you so that I can be of service to you. Thank you for your inquiry and send me an email or give me a call at, and/or (352) 441-0208. Sincerely, Mary Durr, Realtor, Real Living Cridland Real Estate ... more

The answer is yes. There have always been HOA fees for the Meadows of Marion Oaks Townhouses. As of August 2011, a new HOA took over the maintenance and upkeep of the Meadows.

James Frasier answered:
Hello Mary,

Taxes, insurance and utilities will all vary depending on the property but I can give you a rough estimate based on a 3/2 on a 1/4 acre. Taxes could run you around $1400. Insurance around $1000. Utilities would probably be around $200-$300 per month. These numbers of course will fluctuate with each property and owner. If the property is Homesteaded you will save some on taxes. If you need any help locating a home to purchase feel free to contact me.
