More changes...Selling our RV lot in FL

Monday, November 6, 2017

First, we bought a house. Second, we decided to become snowbirds. Third, we got a puppy. Fourth, we added a second puppy. Fifth, we opted to not be snowbirds this year. Phew!

We also have a busy 2018 planned. We have two weeks of cruising in late January/early February. There is a lot we want to do around the house and yard this spring. We hope to start the process of building Stu's pole barn as well. Then in October, we will be spending 6-8 weeks in MD-DE for our annual doctor visits, meeting & greeting family and friends, the wedding of a granddaughter and then a trip to Walt Disney World with our youngest granddaughter as well as good friends and their grandgirls.

We've done a lot of talking recently and realize our snowbird years are finite and since we'd like to travel a bit, it makes sense to sell the rights to our RV lot in Clermont. So, if you or anyone you know might be interested, here is a little bit of information.

Unfortunately, we don't have any good photos of the lot itself, not sure how that happened. We took photos DURING the paving and DURING the shed installation, but not when done. LOL! Here are a few before the paving was extended on one side and before the shed was installed.

This was after the extension of the pavers but before the shed. The shed is approximately where the cargo trailer sits.

Ciao for now!


  1. I've posted this in your old RVing group.

  2. What do you mean by "assume the balance of our 99-year lease"? If the lot is purchased, why do you have a lease? We just left Florida after looking for lots.

    Thanks, Dale

    1. We assumed, via purchase, the balance of a 99 year lease from the previous owner. The Campground owns the land and assumes responsibility for all taxes but you own the rights to the lot until the end of the 99 year term. The lot can be passed down to your children or other beneficiaries.

    2. I'm still a bit confused. Does the buyer pay you $24,995 and then pay the park so much a month? Or is the lease a total of $24,995 and you pay monthly to pay that off? If a cash buyer pays the $24,995, then will they still have a monthly payment, in addition to the park fees of about $210? Sorry for all the questions, but I want to make sure I understand it.

    3. It's $24,995 (OBO) to us (through the campground office who handles all the paperwork) to purchase the 99 year lease (originated in 2013 so many years left on it). At that point, you "own" the lot according to the lease agreement.

      The $210 is like an HOA fee, it covers your water/septic (you pay your own power), all the community maintenance/upkeep and improvements. Best I can explain it...might want to talk to Rick or Kim for more details.

    4. Okay. Thanks for the explanation, Donna.

  3. WOW! Definitely a lot of changes going on for y'all! One of these days I'm going to get in my car drive to TN to see y'all!! HUGS!

  4. Lovely lot fpr someone who would use it often and then rent it when not there. Hope it sells fast.

  5. Busy, busy, busy ... LOL Good luck selling your FL lot quickly.
