Good Morning, Congrats on the new listing. Have prices dropped or is this typical pricing. Not a large space but the price looks  plenty affordable. Am reading that maintenance fee correctly? Must be lots included in what the fee covers. Perhaps it include an annual membership to Disney Land. Now don't laugh, people would like that as perk.

Looks like LW finally wised up and "improved" their name.  That HOA is pretty salty (for PA thinkers at least).  Hope you sell it quick!

i kinda liked the name leisure world - why was it voted out?  Looks like a nice place.

Marlene,

Living in the tree tops? I love it. Your home/area tour is exceptional, you've done an outstanding job showcasing this home.

Marlene,

A few years ago I smiled at the term senior living. I no longer look at it that way. I am a ways away I hope, but where do the years go?

Hi William - Yes that HOA is correct - thanks for the blog topic - it includes many amenities such as all outside maintenance, most inside maintenance including kitchen appliance replacement, free cable TV, free bus transportation inside the Village and to surrounding stores, shopping, banks and medical services.  There are also discounted taxi rides, golf for only $8, 7 clubhouses and pools, 2 golf courses, an equestrian center, nature trails, an equestrian center, lawn bowling greens, tennis courts....it's a lot for the money!

Hi Jeff - Yes, the HOA is pretty hefty until you see all that it covers - see my response to William above.  The name is very nice, but confusing since it's located in the City of Laguna Woods.

Hi Kristin - It was an interesting court case involving the residents and the family of the developer.  We're happy with our new name now.

Hi Lynda - Thanks for the Kudos.  This really is a fun place to work.

Hi Steven - Senior living is just a term, sure not a state of mind in Laguna Woods.  Most people here have very busy social and athletic calendars.  FYI - Squirrels are allowed :-)

The real estate shows tour really sets this listing off.  You did a great job with this post.

I also liked "Leisure World." Much better than "Carefree Coop in the Treetops." LOL

Hi Judi - I just love Real Estate Shows.  They keep making the product better and better don't they?

Hi Jim - Carefree Coop in the Treetops is not the new name of the community...just my title for the blog.  The new name for the community is Laguna Woods Village.  :-)

Hi Rita - Ya gotta love it, huh?

Hi Kaye - Wouldn't that be nice to have something for $109,000 in Manhatten Beach?  Maybe 50 years ago, right? LOL

How are property taxes handled, who pays?  Is it outside of the HOA fee or included?
