Windemere has two new elementary schools, one new middle school and the new high school. The community college, library and arts theatre are all within walking distances for many of the homes if not all of them. Windemere has a new Sports Park as well as all the neighborhood parks including miles of walking trails. The majority of homes in Windemere do not have a HOA. The taxes range from 1.5 - 1.7 depending on when you purchased and are 3 bonds due to be paid off in 30 years approximately 2030. They can be all paid off or partially paid off ahead of time. Keep in mind, they are tax deductible. Gale Ranch also has a higher tax rate at 1.4, and all their homes have a HOA which in not tax deductible. Hopefully, this has been helpful information. I would welcome the opportunity to represent you in a purchase.
