And just to be practical, what other expenses not yet stated might there be?
e.g. What is electric in summer with full A/C?

I can't do heat, so I tend to keep my place colder than most people down here. (around 72/73) even in August. Plus I leave lights on, and run two computers full time, not to mention fans because I have severe tinnitus and they help cover the noise.

So in August my electric bill (keeping in mind it covers central air and all of the above stuff) was over 200.00 but on average it's closer to 150.


Water/sewer?
Water about $10.00 a month
Sewer about $15.00


Is there a place where we can read the association rules?
The Quality Homes people can help there http://www.qualityhomesonline.com/homes_detail.asp?QualityID=6396

Any limitation on who you can sell to when that time comes?
At least one resident has to be 55 or older.

Looks like a nice place . . .

I've actually had some action the past couple of days.

We had an Open House Saturday and quite a few people came through.
Today a couple from Canada checked it out, they are coming back again tomorrow.

And I had a visit from a friend of one of our members this afternoon.

Things are looking up. I expect something good will happen soon.
If you are at all interested, please come by as soon as possible, before you miss out
on a really good deal.

Come on folks, we've dropped the price to $17,900 and are now including furnishings.

So if you are looking for a lovely warm sunny retreat for the winter, or even a year round home, this is one of the nicest manufactured homes you could hope to find in this price range.

And it's one of the prettiest and best maintained 55+ parks in the Tampa Bay area.

Plus Largo is perfectly situated between St. Petersburg and Tampa, great location!

You can tour the home any day, just contact the park realty management at (727) 559-0368 and tell them you'd like to see Mr. Piano World's place ( #227)

Nice try :-)

"Furnishings", nothing about musical instruments.

It's a good thing my Estonia didn't read this post, it would have been highly insulted to have someone refer to it as furnishing.

However there is a nice studio piano in the club house right across the street. Buy my place and you're welcome to play their piano anytime.

You're probably right Larry, but at this point I'd just as soon sell it for this low price and move on.

I thought perhaps if an individual didn't want to purchase my place, maybe a couple of families would get together and use it like a time share.

Or, one family might buy my home to use a few months a year, then rent it when they aren't using it.

Of course if someone wanted to retire to warm sunny Florida, this is about as cheap a way to do it (and still be in a really nice place) as you can hope to find.

I've contemplated both of those angles. It seems like the rental market would be tight in the winter and a glut in the summer. What are the odds of renting the thing out in the warmer months?

If only it was in southern California (where I live now) ... and if I had the $$$, I'd maybe consider it ... but I just barely avoided having to take out a 80-year mortgage on the first month's interest payment on my 1950 Baldwin Hamilton a few years ago. (FYI I got the piano for free.) My financial situation hasn't improved much since then.

Why don't use it as a rental? Use it as an investment and maybe sell in the future when prices return to normal...

Is the $567 lot rent a month or a year?

Monthly.
We'd love to hang onto it but at the moment I can't support both.
