Age of Residents

82 Cool Facts About The Villages July 25, 2013 By Ryan Erisman
4. The average age in The Villages for a male is 62 and female is 60.

These ages seem low to me. Do you think that that is the average age when a person buys in The Villages? I can accept that. As the community ages so do the people that reside there.

That does seem a little low, though keep in mind there are some people under 55 who bring down the average. I played golf two years ago with two men who appeared to be in their early forties. One had moved with his wife to the Villages a couple years before because they were avid golfers and he could work from anywhere in his job. The other was his closest friend and after visiting him bought a home on the same street and moved with his wife. They both loved the area, the golf, the shopping and restaurant options, and they intended to live out their lives here. The rule is that no less than 80% of HOUSEHOLDS must have a resident age 55 or older. That means that up to 20% can have individuals or couples all of whom are under 55, and up to 100% COULD have a spouse or child resident under age 55.

Seems right by me.

Geesh- Here the title got me all excited about being able to tell you how old I am...39 hubby just turned 50. This is just a numbers thread :rant-rave:

We LOVE IT HERE and I am glad to say --yes we are old enough to use all the pools here. :pepper2:

I have heard that number as well and find it difficult to believe - can't imagine there are that many early retirees living here or that many folks came here to live and work!
I am 64, hubby is 66.

I'm pretty sure that is the average age of purchasers, not all residents.

MicheleE 07-31-2013 09:57 AM

I'm 52 and my hubby is 55.

My wife and I were both in our late 40's when we bought. I agree with the OP that as the community ages, so does it's residents, but only after it is built out. In The Villages, there are still younger people continuing to buy the homes which, IMO, continues to lower the average age.

The average age did not shock me, but this one did:
14. The average household income for home buyers in The Villages is $93,800
Maybe this number supports the younger average age number as some people still work when they purchase? If not the average villager is doing a heck of alot better than I will do in retirement!

This does not surprise me---$93,800 income for the current home buyers. TV is selling Premier Homes as fast as they can build them. Many of them are 750,000-850,000 with 40,000 plus bonds. All other models are higher priced too. IMHO some over exuberance to buy new while you can! After build out, I believe home prices will level off and perhaps even drop a bit due to the fact there will be no new homes being built. This is probably a minority opinion.
