Here is a link to the state of Florida's 55+ housing website. If you click on the link on this page it will give you a directory of all the 55+ communities in the entire state. You can search for them by city so you can find all of them in Palm Harbor.

Hopefully this will be helpful to you.

Hi Deb:

I was wondering if you are still looking for a home for your mother. I also have a lovely villa in Pasco County where you can get more for your money. Please let me know if you are interested. Price is right and is fully furnished. More information upon request.

Highland Lakes in Palm Harbor. Look at the property for $159,900 ( negotiable, of course) located at
3331 McMath Drive. This property has value, location, very low fees and all the amenities that you
can possibly want. Close to shopping, Countryside Mall, and a clubhouse that has something for
everyone. Enjoy the pictures.

Hi Deb,
Have you picked out some communities you are interested in. As you can see there are several communities available. Here are a few communities by name, town, and type.

Palm Harbor:
HIghland Lakes: If your mother likes golf this is one of the best bargains around. There are single family homes, condos and villas. There is an active community life with a clubhouse,golf, tennis, pool and more.

Heritage Springs-another golf community with single family and villas.

Royal Stewart Arms-condo
Patrician Oaks-condo ( I think one building there is not 55+)
Heather Ridge North condos and Heather Ridge village - villa
Skye Loc villas
Sctosdale Cluster Condos
Edgewater Arms condos(right on the water)

Inverness condos
Village on the Green condos
Pinewood Village
Villas of Lake Arbor
On Top of The World condos (also have golf)
Arbor Trace Condos

Whether you are currently looking for a home or just browsing on line for now, I have a free service called “Listingbook”, which I provide for my clients. It is like a back door into the MLS which updates daily: price changes, solds & withdrawns, allowing you to really be able to follow and learn the market. I set up a basic search according to your guidelines. Once you are in, you can change the parameters as you need. If this is something you would be interested in let me know.

Hello Deb, there are several 55+ communities in and near Palm Harbor. One that has not been mentioned is Anchorage (in the East Lake area of Palm Harbor) This community has large club house with different social functions ( voluntary to attend these social gatherings).They usually have a holiday social ,which they are probably preparing for now. I could get more info & contact number and see if we could visit. Homes are priced very reasonable & very low association dues. ( last year i believe was $ 21. per month.) Also Green Valley ( not 55 +) but conveniently located near Tampa rd & Us 19. I have a 2 bedroom villa listed for 99,000. End unit ( windows on three sides ) open floor plan, large bedrooms, family room, dining room. Large club house, community pool, I can send pictures & info of these communities if you would like, or any other community. Thank you, RICH MEINKE 727 644 5754.

Hi Deb, I would highly recommend Highland Lakes in Palm Harbor. It is a very active, lovely 55+community that consists of single family homes, condos and villas. It is a great place to move to when you do not know many people in the area, since there is always something going on at the clubhouse, pool,and has great golf courses if your mother plays golf, or would like to learn.
I have a couple moving down from Chicago, and once they saw the area, they can't wait until they are in their new home. I currently have a 1 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath villa available for sale, and there are many other choices too. Contact me, and I would be happy to assist you.

Hi Deb,
There are many things to consider when looking for a 55+ Community in the Clearwater area. Are you looking for a community with active social groups, ammenities such as a pool/clubhouse, etc. Some of these communities allow pets, some do not. Are you looking for condos with several levels/floors, or would you prefer an environment with only single story condos/villas? IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN A COMMUNITY THAT IS CONVENIENTLY LOCATED, ATTRACTIVE AND WELL MAINTAINED AND SOCIALLY ACTIVE - I have a listing that you would like to see! It's a 2/2 + carport LAKEVIEW VILLA in Village on the Green.....LOWEST PRICE IN THE COMMUNITY and NOT a Short Sale. You can see the listing on my website at Good luck!

Check out Briar Creek mobile home park. It's a nice community where the mobile home owners also own the land beneath. It's well maintained with many activities. You may be able to buy a small home for your Mom for not too much money. Because there is land, you can also finance it. She may be able to qualify on her own social security earnings to purchase her own home.

Please call me if you would like my help.

All my best,

Hi Deb,
Specifically in Palm Harbor, off of US 19, Highland Lakes is a wonderful 55+ community with many amenities & reasonable prices. Off of East Lake Rd (611)I have a 1/1 perfect for your mom, though not a 55+ community is a mixed age. All amenities, ground floor, close to all & maybe better to rent now until the adjustment period is over. Then she could buy the unit or buy wherever she makes new friends. I will be happy to work with her &/or you. The apartment is on my website below. Don't hesitate to call with any questions 727-479-4355 or email me @

Hello Deb,

I need a little more information abdout the number of bedrooms, etc your mom would be looking for in order to narrow down the available properties. There are over 250 properties in the Palm Harbor, Dunedin area that are available in 55 and over communties under $150K and 102 under $100K. I have sold many properties in that area and also live in a 55+ comples. Please contact me in order to customize your list of availabilities. I am an Exclusive Buyer Agent so your mom would get 100% representation from me. You can also search properties on my website. With an email I would be happy to send you a listing of over 55 communities for that area with no obligation or pressure on my part.
