About the HOA Fees
Ocala 55+ Community HOA Fees can vary greatly and impact affordability. The above list of HOA fees should be verified before making a purchase decision. A common question I get asked is, what do the fees cover? Each community is different, and I’ll try to publish that information on each community page. You can click on each community from the Ocala 55+ Community HOA Fees chart above.
Don’t let the HOA fee alone determine where you should live or focus your search. I’m providing this chart as a quick reference tool. However, evaluating your life’s needs for your current phase and what each community offers should be considered. Most of the communities offer tremendous value for the monthly fee. However, if their offer doesn’t match your needs, it’s no value.
For instance, for Ocala Preserve, the HOA Fee covers high-speed internet, outside irrigation, and lawn maintenance as part of the monthly fee (you get much more included, but this is for example only); purchasing these services alone can cost you over $250 / month. So considering that and comparing the $499 / month for Ocala Preserve vs. $216 / month for Del Webb’s Stone Creek, which doesn’t provide any of those benefits (the garden series or villa in Stone Creek do give some of that, but their HOA Fee is higher) might lead you to the conclusion that paying $499 / month is a better value.
