I've probably been watching too much 'Fixer Upper' but I have an 'all in' budget for the house in mind which will have to include payoff of any bond remaining on the home. Thinking a 5 year old home with a paid off bond would be great!

As I hear it the "nut" in The Villages is about $10,000 as has previously been posted; mortgage payments, taxes and bar tabs not included.

Which type of taxes do you refer to...property or income as being excluded from the $10k?

As for the bar tab...seperate bucket!

i have a patio villa, the smallest house 2bdrm 2 bath and i figured out my monthly costs for housing here without a mortgage is roughly $600 per month including taxes and insurance. i have drought resistant plants so many times can shut off outdoor sprinklers. that includes termite contract, yard care, utilities and cable etc but i have the least expensive package and my bond is paid off. i think most people spend more than that but it is doable if you have a small budget. and i am lucky to have a very inexpensive lawn care guy who does our whole neighborhood and only charges me $250 a year but as i said a very small plot and mostly drought resistant shrubs, not much lawn. the amenity fee goes up a few dollars each year. in nine years it has gone from $135 to $149! my lifestyle here is great fun and worth a few extra dollars to participate in all the activities i so enjoy!

I am single. Pay around 200 a month for amenities water sewer and garbage. 45 per month for lawn service. Average 50 per month electric and 30 per month gas. If you're building get thermal windows and extra insulation in walls and ceiling and a tankless water heater. I have a designer home 2000 sq. Ft. Have lived here for 17 years. Add in some money per year for repairs, yearly a.c. and heat service. Etc. You'll love it here. Oh. Don't forget real estate taxes $2,000 and insurance and bond if there is one.

Oh my, didn't you ever look at the Utility bill? I'm sure you really didn't think your utility bill which is basically water ran that high. Which I'm sure your's ran about $150 to $200. a month. Water is high here in Florida but I guess it depends where you came from before. Mine In Ohio where I came from ran 12 to $15. a month. This article is a little hard to answer some of the comments!
