I frequently sell homes at Leisure World, and one of the most popular neighborhoods (called mutuals) there is The Greens. The Greens is made up of four high-rise buildings, located on the golf course, and within walking distance of Clubhouse II. Clubhouse II contains Leisure World’s brand new fitness center, as well as the indoor pool, the auditorium, the ceramics studio, and various game rooms and meeting rooms, so it’s a nice place to be close to. All of the buildings were constructed in 1984.
Each building in the Greens has a large meeting room with a kitchenette and a small library on the lobby floor. These meeting rooms are used for social events within the building themselves, and can also be rented out for private parties. Each building also has a parking garage attached to the lobby and the basement. Some condos come with a parking spot and some do not, so that’s something to pay attention to when buying there. Also, each condo has some storage space in the basement. Some condos come with storage rooms, which are about the size of a typical half bathroom in a home. Many condos just come with a storage cage, which is about the size of an old-fashioned steamer trunk. Again, that’s something to pay attention to when buying, if storage is important to you.
The monthly condo/community fee varies according to the square footage of the unit, etc. The monthly fee for all of the units includes almost all of the amenities at Leisure World (see my general post about Leisure World to read about those), as well as Basic Cable TV, Common Area Maintenance, Exterior Building Maintenance, Lawn Maintenance, Management, Master Insurance Policy, Reserve Funds, Sewer, Snow Removal, Trash Removal, and Water. The monthly fees for the units currently on the market range from $673 for 1115 square feet to $809 for 1530 square feet.
The prices for the units sold at The Greens in the last six months range from $122,500 for a 1-bedroom, 1-bath unit with 945 square feet, to 335K for a fully updated 3- bedroom, 2-bath unit with 1650 square feet and a garage space. Many of the units at the Greens have original kitchens from when they were built in 1984, which I believe makes their sale prices lower than in many parts of Leisure World.
Clients often ask me to see all floorplans available at the Greens. For your convenience, I am posting them here. You can see that every unit comes with a lovely three-season enclosed balcony. Almost all the units in all of Leisure World have a three-season enclosed balcony, which is a very popular feature.
If you or someone you know is considering moving to Leisure World, please feel free to contact me. I’d be happy to help!
