I have family that moved from SCC to Kings Point just because of all those costs that homeowners have at SCC and it's included in the KP HOA. All the families I know (many) at both KP and SCC are extremely happy w/ their decision to retire there.

Default King's Point Condo

I see that this is an old thread but wanted to put in my $.02...............I have a friend (under 60) who owns a small 800 s.f. 1 bdrm 1-1/2 ba condo in King's Point and he likes it. The $365/mo is cheap when you consider cable tv, indoor/outdoor pool, workout facilities, tennis courts and 24 hr. entrance gate security. He even has covered parking for a car or golf cart and he is 2 minutes from I-75

His neighbors are friendly (for the most part) but there's always a bad apple opportunist in the bunch looking to steal someone's inheritance!!

No, it's not perfect and the local HOAs can be a pain, but if you don't like the rules, you can always get off of your butt and get on the board and change them. Each group of condos has their own HOA.

When you consider a condo buy-in price of only $20k for all of the amenities, these little condos are pretty sweet and his is all refurbished - new floors, appliances, paint, etc. Pretty cheap living compared to some of the mobile home parks that run $500+ per month.

Updating an old thread...

Is it possible for someone under age 55 to purchase a home in Sun City Center? I'm 48, my wife 44, and we have no kids living with us. I currently live in Tampa, and we both work downtown. It would actually be a good fit for us, as we kind of enjoy the slower pace there.

If I can't buy there, is there a place somewhat similar you might recommend?

Thank you.
