OXFORD, Fla. (Feb. 8, 2021) – Simple Life, the company that believes the best life is lived simply, at a lower cost and with fewer burden, debuted Lakeshore, a 222 one-and two-bedroom cottage community located in Oxford, Florida just outside the Villages ® with homes starting in the $130s. Simple Life presents a unique approach to community building and homeownership existing on a single tract of land, where the owner’s lease the land under their home. No cost of land in the purchase of a home creates an immediate savings of up to a six-figures. This also eliminates some of the significant costs of real estate taxes and hassles of land ownership.
For most Lakeshore homeowners, the savings on real estate taxes on a traditional home far exceed the Simple Life land lease. Simple Life never charges HOA fees, CDD fees, DDA fees, assessments, or community improvement costs. Home buyers enjoy the peace-of-mind of knowing those big-surprise bills are a thing of the past. One more way Lakeshore ensures a simple life; home buyers choose the lease term, and if the home is sold the lease is canceled immediately at no cost, hidden fees, or burden.
“Today small space living in connected communities has been embraced by people wanting a permanent residence, second home or vacation property, at a significantly lower cost than traditional real estate,” said Simple Life president Mike McCann. “New home buyers can save thousands of dollars in down payment and carry costs with a cottage home at Lakeshore compared to the customary purchase of a home in surrounding areas such as The Villages ®.”
Lakeshore’s single tract land approach allows buying all services in bulk and passing the savings along to the home buyer. To help keep it simple, all home-operating costs traditionally paid separately are streamlined into one convenient monthly payment, such as water, sewer, trash/recycling, premium cable, hi-speed internet, tree care, lawn care, fertilizing, irrigation, and gated entry. Plus, Lakeshore is always curating an exciting calendar of activities for residents at its 3,500 sq. ft. clubhouse and many open green spaces.
