New Book On Finding Florida Budget Homes
By: Classic & Textile Art
One tip the author reveals is not to buy the land, only the house, and to lease the land. His family pays $659 a month to lease the land his house sits on. That fee also includes the perks of his gated retirement community, like an Olympic swimming pool and lodge and recreation areas. It also includes trash pickup twice a week, 67 channels of cable tv, etc., so the actual cost of the land rental is about $400 a month.
The book identifies hundreds of similar communities with these fees ranging from $165 to $1000, and all having current homes available in the specified range.
Currently available on pre-order, the book release is scheduled for Oct. 26. The website for the book is http://www.affordablefla.com . Matthews was a former Editor of the NSS News, the monthly magazine of the National Speleological Society (professional cave explorers). He is a Fellow of the Society and served on its Board of Directors. He is an instrument rated pilot and a noted pet photographer.
