Looking for Maintenance Free Home:
With an active lifestyle, wouldn’t be nice to have someone else take care of the lawn? Maintenance free homes in our area commonly refer to the lawn maintenance and sprinkler care. Most homes are free standing and the homeowner is responsible for the care of the structure and private swimming pool. These homes are still considered single family homes with the privacy and ownership of a homeowners association.
However, if you are thinking about a condo purchase in Sarasota or Bradenton, then the majority of the maintenance will be done by the condo association rather than the homeowner. Most condo associations will have guidelines found in their covenants pertaining to responsibilities of maintenance.
