Default oak run

from what I've read Oak Run is much cheaper than OTOW and Dell Webb communities. Like to hear some more opinions or facts. PD

Painterdude, Oak Run is a little higher than OTOW, but it depends on what you are looking for. I suggest you look at both. There is also a Del Webb community only about 2 miles north of OTOW, but it's a lot higher than either of the others. You can still get a 2/2/1 or 1-1/2 in OTOW in the $40-$50,000 range if you don't mind a fixer-upper. I live in OTOW, by the way.

There are many 55+ communities in Ocala! You may want to speak to a realtor who will gladly take you around to all of them or at least maybe send you a brochure on the ones you are interested in. Good luck. Ocala's a great place, if you ask me.

Oak Run HOA fee is around $110. OTOW is over $400. That's each and every month on top of your house payment and property taxes.

Not entirely true. At OTOW, the fees vary by section. Some of the older homes are completely maintained on the outside (painting, roof, landscaping, tree trimming, etc.) by the community and others require the homeowner to maintain those items at their expense.

But what is included? Yard care, exterior house painting, roof replacement. You have to dig into the details. I think you can find a neighborhood from the low 100's to 300 monthly HOA fees. Some OTOTW communities include cable and internet in the fee.

I think most of the house prices in Ocala are pretty cheap if you're selling somewhere else, but as said, the monthly fee's are pretty steep in some of the places. Depends on what you want to do I guess. Personally I love to work in the yard, mow the grass and pick weeds. If someday I need someone to do my yard work that will be done. Paint the house??? Oh yea...I've been painting for almost 40 years. It's all about finding what you(or the CEO) really want. For me, affordable activities, taxes and golf are all I need to be happy. Looking forward to checking the area out. I've been in contact with most of the private communities and it seems that the newer Dell Webb place is the most expensive for homes, but doable for the fee's. Ocala Palm, Oak Run and even Summerglenn seem to be closer to what I'm looking for..unless of course we just go to a regular neighborhood or head over to Palm Coast or somewhere closer to the gulf. STill over a year out so time is on our side

I can tell you for sure that Oak Run is one of the nicest and has great amenities. The choice of homes spans from the low $60's to $300K+. The lower priced homes are frame and it seems that you don't get into the CB/Stucco until you hit $100K. The homes on the lower end (older homes built around 1989) have very reasonable maint fees (lower than $150), because they don't have any maintenance included. You do your own maintenance. The newer homes have maintenance and those fees are approx $250+.
Nice place!

Does anyone know anything about Palm Cay in Ocala? I'm looking online before I venture down that way. It looks nice and in my price range. I also like Oak Run online too and have heard good reviews. OTOTW I've heard you don't own the land, it's a lease? Don't know if I would like that. Is that only for the attached home or the single family areas also? Thanks for any info.
