The association dues at Kelly Plantation are $640/quarter. $2560/yr. The HOA's have not changed much in several years. I would be most happy to discuss the neighborhood HOA's and other costs of ownership at your convenience. You can reach me at (850)-337-0789 or email me at

The fees are paid quarterly and are $640 per quarter x 4 quarters in a year this comes to $2,560 for the entire year. These fees pay for the following expenses: Accounting, Ground Keeping, Legal, Management, Recreational Facilities, Security.

That is a tough question to answer. I realize your concerns because I am a retiree also. You need to consider what the HOA actually cover. It differs between subdivisions. In Kelly the HOA covers; Accounting, Ground Keeping, Legal, Management, Recreational Facilities, Security. There are no insurance costs here so the fee's should be fairly stable with modest increases each year unless the HOA decides to cut back in some area. Saying that, I agree with Susan, get a Real Estate agent here in the local area to do more research on the subdivision. There might be some reason they are currently higher that normal. IE. some owners might be deliquent for some reason and theother owners are paying for that short fall.
Call me and we can discuss.
