Don't know if ya'll found a home yet, but Inverness, Florida is just beautiful. Nice town, not too big, not too small. Just an hour away from airport. Check out this MLS listing #756389.

I also gather that Brighthouse cable is not available, so reliance on spotty satellite is the only option when the developer closes down his Dish franchise. Also, can you tell us what the HOA fees are for Indigo East? There are things going on at OTOW like concerts, farmers' markets, restaurants, shows, and Master The Possibility classes that I have enjoyed at little to no additional cost as a non-resident. I don't think the premium cost of being a resident is worth it. But then, I am not looking for a more "social" lifestyle.

Again.....that's just my opinion.
I think you understand pretty good. Look at OTOTW as several communities. Indigo is probably inexpensive and I think they have almost 300 more homes to go to it is built out.

Not sure about the landscaping. I would have though you had to do that your self. There are communities in OTOTW that do all outside maintenance.

Yes what can be seen from the street has to meet HOA requirements.

Their are several TV and internet co's. They vary by community so if this is important spend some time making sure you will be satisfied. You will not lose the satellite TV very often.

Do not know the HOA fee but I think it is under 200. Maybe a lot closer to 100. But if you want to use the OTOTW facilities you have to pay a much higher fee. Might want to consider one of the other OTOTW communities.

If you can it would be best to see a sales person and take the 3 day "stay vacation".

We probably will take advantage of some of the things that are offered within the community, as long as residency isn't a requirement. The HOA fees that we saw are much higher than we really want to pay. I've seen quotes of around $350/month. The concept of an HOA is quite foreign to folks in my area of Central NY. I can't imagine paying half of a "rent" payment plus taxes for a property with no mortgage.
The fees vary by which part of the complex you are in. Best to talk to a salesperson. The higher fees include your outside maintenance, with the exception (?) of roof replacement. The lower the HOA fee the more work you do yourself or hire others to do.
