Oak Run Ocala Florida

oak-run-entrance-small

Oak Run is a large 55 plus community with 2 golf courses. Oak Run is located just off SR200 in the SW corridor area of Ocala. Construction began in 1985 and although Oak Run is almost built out you can still buy a new house from the builder. Oak Run is divided into neighborhoods. These neighborhoods have evolved over a 25 year period and each one has a unique character. The older homes are frame with aluminum siding. A little later the homes were frame with vinyl siding. The newer homes are concrete block and stucco. As time went by the size of the houses grew as buyers expectations increased over that 25 year period. You will find older homes as small as 700 sq ft of living area and newer homes over 3,000 sq ft. Prices as you might expect vary tremendously. At the time of this writing list prices are as low as $62,000- up to almost $500,000-. Most homes are in the $100,000- to $200,000- range. HOA fees vary by the neighborhood. In a few areas the homes include lawn care which adds to the fee. In general HOA fees at this time range from $10o- to about $150- with homes that have lawn care being  higher at $216- per month.Amenities at Oak Run are extensive. They include 3 gates with a guard house, basic cable TV, curbside trash pickup and common area maintenance. There is a golf course, several pools including an indoor pool, multiple clubhouses, a restaurant and numerous clubs. Golf is not included in the HOA fee.

Update 1/10/11 : There were 64 sales in Oak Run between 6/1/10 and 12/31/10 from $39,000- (only 960 sq ft) to $230,000-. Of these 64 sales there were only 5 foreclosures and just 2 short sales. HOA fees seem stable.

Update 2-28-12  HOA fees remain the same and vary by neighborhood. There were 117 resales in 2011. Prices ranged from $29,000- for a 892 sq ft frame and vinyl foreclosure up to $243,000- for a 2006 home on the golf course.

Update 2-12-2013 HOA fees vary by neighborhood. There were 171 sales in 2012 ranging from a 2/1/1 784 sqft HUD foreclosed home for $21,500- up to $215,000- for a pool home on the golf course. Home prices vary a lot because Oak Run was built over a period of 25 years and the homes changed in size and construction during that time. Each neighborhood has similar homes of a similar age.

Update 6/14 Fees remain stable but I think prices are starting to go up. Oak Run gives you a lot for your HOA $. It is a must see.

    Please send me a listing of 3 bedroom homes in Oak Run. The lower the price, the better. Thanks!!

  • Joe Dallorso says:

    Will do.
    There are quite a few lower priced homes in Oak Run but as you might expect, the lowest priced homes have less sq ft of living area and fewer bedrooms. Additionally the vast majority of 55+ homes in our area have only 2 bedrooms. Some will have a den/office (no closet) but that to will require more sq ft & of course add to the price.

    Sorry I can’t help. I don’t do rentals

  • Dan G. says:

    Do you own the lots in Oak Run?

    Yes you own the lot in Oak Run. On Top of the World is the only community in our area where you do not own the lot.

  • Donna Schmitt says:

    Are there pet restrictions in Oak Run? We have a well behaved chocolate labrador and a little Westhighland terrier. About 55 pounds and 15 pounds.

  • Joe Dallorso says:

    There is a 2 dog limit. There is also a 40 lb limit but they do not enforce it. This is the case in many 55+. They have a rule but instead of changing it they just don’t enforce it. I have seen several large dogs in Oak Run.

  • Hi Joe, if you would like to send some listings up to 200k that would be great.
    My wife and I will be retiring in less than 1 year and have looked primarily in the Leesburg and Orlando area, but have heard good comments of Ocala and Oak Run, in particular. Thanks in advance.

  • Joe Dallorso says:

    I will send you listings for Oak Run. I think you will find that you’ll get a lot more house for less money than down in Lessburg or Orlando
