Hi jensen beach gal...It is located in central florida, Northwest of Orlando.
Orlando is about a 60 mile drive.
It is an interesting property. People that are familiar with manufactured home living would look at the positive side of the property.
It is low priced because it is an older manufactured double-wide (It's an early 1970's Ramada). But, it is in very good condition (new shingle roof, and other things, as the woman's family took good care of her and the house).
And, it is in a 50+ community in which some of the newer places are selling for about $100,000 ..So the prices are all over the place, according to location (if a place is on the water) and construction, etc....
So, it's the old question of having one of the lowest price houses in a nice community..And, the fact is, this is one of the original ones (thus the age of the home).
But, like I said, for the price you get all the furniture (You could probably recover a good part of the costs from a yard sale)...And, the place is in very good condition.
And, the community has two pools, a club house, game room, pool tables, catering hall - where they have some functions...
The monthly community charges are $430 - As the house is on community land. And, this fee includes property mainteneance, the facilities (pools, clubhouse, etc).
It's a good deal if you are looking to live in this type of community, or if you have someone you know that is retiring and looking to live in Florida (full time or part time).
My buddy is selling it as he lives in NYC, and it is impractical for him to travel there.
Let me know if you need more info, ..I can put you in touch with him...Though he is not one to sit down and peck at a computer keyboard (that's why I am posting this for him)..So, you would best speak to him by phone..
