Sometimes there are opening charges for new accounts. That sounds high.

I just came across this old post found in "NUTS AND BOLTS" section. (Three chapters) by Caveman. It could be titles "Everything you wanted to know about The Villages but were afraid to ask". It is a great source of information. I printed it out (I suggest everyone do the same) and tuck it away for future reference. Great job, Caveman. Thanks,

Zcaveman,

This is such a wealth of information for us and answers so many questions we have. We are coming in January to finally buy home in TV's. Thank you for taking the time to compile this information.
Any information about life in TV's that you or anyone else can supply will be greatly appreciated.
I have a question about what lawn and yard equipment/tools do we need to bring if we decide to do our own lawn work. Coming from Ohio, hopefully we can leave the snowblower behind.

Thanks so much

ceegeo - Re: lawn and garden tools, etc. You'll find that most people will hire the work out. There's lots of competition so prices stay pretty reasonable and consistent.

I think some full-timers start off doing their own yard work then find themselves too busy doing other things any enjoying themselves that they end up hiring the work out. There is a segment of people, though, who truly enjoy working in their yards - they'll always want to do their own work!

Bill

My suggestion---Let the pro's do it. For $40 a month for mowing, edging and weeding ($10 week) it isn't worth doing yourself. It does get hot in Florida.

I review these posts on occasion and did mane some updates to Comcast and the Utilities but I do not see what need to be updated in the Florida Driver's license section since I refer everyone to the Florida DMV site for the information.

I did remove the "Florida only" driver's license info since they do not exist anymore.

I sent you a PM but you did not answer. Can you please enlighten me as to what I need to change?

Thanks,
Z

Thumbs up

Just wanted to say thanks for the insite of what to expect for living expenses. As far as I can see, they are all cheaper than what I am paying right now. I should be down there, as planned in 2 years. I have to retire first!

Z;

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for revisiting your post.

The three part post is a must read for all wannabees amongst others.

IMO - The greatest post ever to be put on TOTV.

I commend you for al your hard work and the service you provided.
