The following description provides you with really good information as regards this beautiful gated community.  You can read it in depth … scan it … or scroll to the bottom and wait a couple seconds for the current listing to present.

Pelican Marsh is one of many world class communities in the Naples area.  Maybe I should just say that instead of world class, it is a Naples – class community!  Pelican Marsh is the 2nd of several major planned communities developed by WCI.  The location of Pelican Marsh in the Naples’ environment is dead center.  It is maybe 7 minutes to the beach.  It is 7 minutes to Artis – Naples, formerly the Naples Philharmonic Center for the Arts.  It is less than 7 minutes to many major restaurants / movies / shopping … super markets, etc.  I could go on but you get the idea.

Prices in today’s market (April 2014) range from the high $200′s up to the $3.0 mark.  Residential styles run from condos to villas to single family homes to major estate homes.  Each style has several levels of price ranges and sizes.

One major point has to be made when it comes to ‘fees’.  The unknowing buyer commonly objects when it comes to fees.  When they object, they are indicating they do not understand.  These communities are managed by ‘the owners’ who are elected to their respective boards by other owners, once turnover has been made by the developer to the owner.  The fee structures are in place to maintain the beauty and integrity of the respective communities.  Community fees differ from one to another.  As example, in Pelican Marsh, the master association fee includes the cost to maintain the major tennis complex and fitness center as well as the cost of cable television and internet expense.  You may not play tennis or have interest in the world class fitness facility but it is part of the amenity package owners buy in to.  I am going to guess that maybe the total expense per owner for these amenities might be in the range of $20 a year !!!  In other communities, these daily living expenses may be directly billed to individual owners or be part of private membership.

Some buyers unfamiliar with condo expenses express concern when they realize the quarterly condo association fees.  The 2 major budgetary line items in the quarterly fees are lawn maintenance and ‘insurance’.  Remember, our growing season is 365 days a year.  The green stuff grows daily!  And when it comes to insurance, one has to realize that the highest percentage of your residential insurance expense is included in the quarterly fees.  As a condo owner, as the major portion of your quarterly fees cover your insurance, you will most likely want to take out a ‘tenant’s insurance package which covers the interior of the condo residence from the ‘walls in’.
