That is a difficult question to answer. There are a lot of different developments in Trinity, some newer, some older, so the answer would vary greatly on this. If you do want some more help, give me a call, or send me an email, with a bit more detail. Age of home, any specific community or area you are interested in?

Land and structure are assessed separately by county property appraisers. For a mobile home taxes vary depending on who owns and maintains the lot - each owner, or the park operator? Each condo owner pays the county property tax for their individual condo. Condo owners share the land, and common elements like the pool, landscaping and clubhouse. Each condo owner pays their share to the condo association which then pays the property taxes for the land and common elements. This is a general explanation - it is important to team with an experienced realtor who will make sure you uderstand and review the operating budget and ownership documents for the specific community you are considering being an owner in.

Hello Miss Williamz, there is much more to a real estate transaction than looking at what is available on the market. A realtor can guide you through knowing intricacies that you may not be aware of. There are so many inaccuracies on the internet, and generally a realtor is your best source of the most up to date information at any given time. Especially important is the knowing the "current market" of the particular neighborhood you are in. While Trulia and Zillow can give you a wealth of information to help you be a more knowledgeable buyer, their numbers are usually way off as to values, and they frequently have properties that are not currently on the market.
A realtor can guide the negotiation process, which is very important in getting you the best deal on a property. Once you are under contract, a realtor will be your go to person in dealing with the title company, lender, and seller's agent--to make it all come together so you can close your purchase when you want to.

As a buyer, you do not pay for the services of the realtor--the seller pays, and a buyer's agent can help you negotiate for extras from the seller that you probably won't think to ask for, thereby saving you money. If you don't pay for the service, and you save money by using a realtor, now I ask you--why wouldn't you use a realtor?

I will be happy to assist you further if you contact me.

Comedian Flip Wilson had the best perspective on insurance. He simply said, "the iinsurance company is betting nothing is going to happen to you/your property while you on the other hand are betting something is going to happen."

Our recommendation is to be in touch with a local engineer for their opinion.

Trinity is unique in that has about 3,685 acres:

There is nothing close to it in Clearwater. However there is Lansbrook in Palm Harbor which is close to it but not quite.
