I think what we signed said we could not make a profit from the sale for 1 year. If we sold in the 1st year the villages would get the profit!?!

Not 100% sure but this is what I remember!

If yhou sell before the year is up, any profit goes to the developer. This was put in place to discourage "flippers".

As I understand it, you can sell just not with a profit, I don't think there is any "penalty"

I didn't buy new so I don't have any paperwork with the restrictions. I'd be interested if someone would post the language in the contract. There would be a significant difference between a profit and selling for more than one paid. There is no profit if you made capital improvements, paid a realtor, paid off a bond, closing costs etc. all of which could result in a higher selling price but actually losing money on your home.

You can sell it for MORE. I don't think you have to pay the whole amount OVER to The Villages, but there is a penalty...or folks would come in and buy lots of houses and resell them and make a business of it. It was to discourage blatant flipping and protect the developer AND us..
I have to be myself, everyone else is taken.

You can sell before the year is up, but the profit of the price you paid for the house goes to the villages closing costs lessen and other things lessen the profit
Do not worry about things you can not change

That policy was started years ago. Folks would buy a number of homes duing the hay days then turn around a sell them at a profit.

If a homeowner sells within the first year and makes a profit that amount of profit goes to The Villages, unless you purchase another home in The Villages. If that happens that rule doesn't apply. The one thing you should check out is if someone sells within one year, makes a profit on the sale and purchases another home that is a lower price than the sale of the previous home I'm not sure if the rule applies.
It is a positive attitude towards life that makes dreams come true

If you sell before a year and the home sells at a profit, the villages will get the profit over the original sale price. Call your broker and ask .
