Hello Linda, great question. You always want to look at the big picture and factor in all expenses that will add to your monthly spend.
The monthly association fee is $187 and the annual CDD fee is $950. Together it would add up to just under $200 a month in additional expense. But with mortgage rates as low as they are currently, if you went with an FHA loan requiring only 3.5% down you could possibly have a mortgage payment as low as $321. That would make your total come to $521, a bit more if you would impound your taxes into the monthly payment.
Currently the house that you are asking on is "pending" and no longer available. But there are other properties available in that same group of homes.
I'd encourage you to look for your new home on my website. It is tied to the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) and it will let you look at home that are truly available. Also, you can see the CDD fees and HOA fees on it as well for a particular property.
I'd be happy to work with you in finding your new home, please give me a call.
