I don't think I want to wait for your new video. By the way - we look forward to your drone updates. It's great to see the progress from up north! Thanks so much!
Yes, there are 3 fees associated with living in The Villages, besides property taxes and a mortgage (if applicable). The Bond is paid with your annual property tax bill and was the topic of this video.

The Maintenance Assessment, also paid with your property tax bill, it normally runs between about $300 to $650 depending on the subdivision, average is just over $500, this is the topic of the video I am currently working on now.

The last fee is the monthly Amenity Fee that is billed monthly on your water bill. It is currently at $159 for new homes and is subject to a CPI adjustment every year on the anniversary month of your purchase. This is the third video I am working on in this series.

Hope this helps, if not send me a private message with your phone number and we can discuss it further.

I just finished the script for the next video, just have to record the voiceover track. The video has been shot, edited, and is ready to go. Perhaps tomorrow evening I'll have it done.
