💰HOA Fees Del Webb at Lakewood Ranch

Del Webb at Lakewood RanchWhat’s included in the Del Webb HOA fees in Lakewood Ranch?

The community here in Lakewood Ranch is just now turning over to the residents.  That means Pulte, the builder, and developer, is no longer responsible for the HOA.

HOA fees in Del Webb at Lakewood Ranch may change due to the builder no longer subsidizing the ongoing day-to-day activities.

However, the residents have been playing an active role in parts of the HOA for many years so the changeover will come with some experience.  The HOA will still be professionally ran and the management company that Pulte hired is still under contract.  However, once that contract is up, I am sure the new HOA board will shop for services.

The HOA fees at Del Webb include the following items, community amenities, lifestyle director, landscape maintenance of the common grounds and each home, irrigation of the common areas, a staffed and gated entrance, and professional property management.
