Buying, Selling, Renting

The Shores of Long Bayou is one of four communities inside a traffic controlled entrance gate with a 24/7 attendant.

If you are seeking a home in Florida, make sure your realtor understands that each association has its own board of directors. The president of the particular association should be made aware of any sales or rentals. Short-term rentals are highly discouraged in our community.   

When a condominium is purchased, the owner (names on the property title) becomes a member of his condominium association (COA), as well as a member of the homeowners' association (HOA). Each condominium association has its own board of directors. The HOA does not interact with an association's sellers, buyers, or realtors. The Homeowners' Association has a separate board of directors that oversees all common areas. 

Mid-Rises

mid-rises

There are eleven (11) mid-rises that range in size from eighteen (18) to thirty (30) units.  The Shores of Long Bayou is a  diverse, inclusive community. The Shores of Long Bayou promotes the approach...IF YOU SEE SOMETHING-SAY SOMETHING. 



Villas

villas

The villas are two stories with front porches and rear decks.  They each have, at least, one garage. Each Condominium association should offer an orientation on the role of the HOA that includes the health, safety, and general welfare of the common areas.

It is to your advantage to meet the seller's realtor to explain the structure of our community. You should have the updated Q&A for your building or villa, the seller should have a certified copy of the Declaration (NOT A PROSPECTUS). Mortgage applications may refer to HOA information. In this circumstance, your  answers are in reference to YOUR association - not the HOA. All the information you provide will be regarding YOUR ASSOCIATION - whether it's a four unit villa or a 30 unit mid-rise, it is best to note this on the mortgage application.
