About the HOA Fees

Ocala 55+ Community HOA Fees can vary greatly and definitely impact affordability. The above list of HOA fees should be verified prior to 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 of the community pages. You can click into each community from the chart above titled Ocala 55+ Community HOA Fees.

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 evaluation your life’s needs for your current phase and what each community offers should be taken into consideration. Most of the communities offer tremendous value for the monthly fee, however if what they offer doesn’t match your needs, then it’s no value at all. Take for instance Trilogy at Ocala Preserve, the HOA Fee covers high speed internet, expanded cable TV (over 160 channels), 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 taking that into consideration and comparing the $430 / month for Trilogy vs $204 / month for Del Webb’s Stone Creek which doesn’t provide any of those benefits (the garden series or villa in Stone Creek do provide some of that but their HOA Fee is higher) might lead you to the conclusion that paying $430 / month is a better value.

If you’d like to discuss your situation to find the best community value for you, please give me a call and let’s get started!
