Lake Juliana Landings, Auburndale

An attractive, 55+ manufactured home community, Lake Juliana Landings is midway between Orlando and Tampa in central Florida.  The development has nearly 300 homes, and it overlooks a 1,200-acre freshwater lake with several other bodies of water close at hand.

Prices start at less than $100,000 and the most expensive are $113,000; homes have 3-bedrooms and 2-baths; pre-owned homes start at $55,000 for 3 bedrooms and 2 baths.  Homeowners do not own the land upon which their homes sit; instead, the land is leased, which is why home prices are so reasonable.  Lot leases start at a little over $300 per month. This fee may go up and is tied to local market trends.  The developer also offers a rent-to-own program to all residents.    Call (800) 917-0839 for more information.
