I worry I will be unable to get FedEx or Amazon deliveries to my new home (I worry because my previous home was brand new, too - in a new sub-division - FedEx and Amazon could not make deliveries and I ended up having to go to the post office postmaster to request my address be ‘activated’ - before it was recognized via GPS).

Has anyone else experienced this problem? What did you have to do?

Thank you!!! I need to get this resolved fast - I close very soon.
Hi and Thank you for your question.

In our app, if you live in the newer sections... click "Search"... type in your address but type in Wildwood instead of The Villages and it will pop up.

If you talk to anyone having issues finding your house, be it any delivery type service, friend or family, tell them to get the app and type in Wildwood at the end.

We aren't able to change the City name because we don't have the option to do it because it was Wildwood. That will change in time.

Also, if you live in the newer sections towards U.S. 27/441 and Leesburg... Type in "Fruitland Park" as the city name and it will find your house.

For those of you that do this and don't want to have to do it again.... Once it finds your house, click the "Heart Icon" and it will save it in your Favorites so you never have to search for your house again.

Hope that helps and hope you all had a Wonderfull Thanksgiving and Very safe and Happy Christmas :-)
