But....if you purchase a home with the bond paid off, wouldn't that be reflected in the asking price of the home and also be reflected in the purchase price?

There are those that will say it does not but I believe that it does increase the purchase price and therefore the taxes will be higher based on the new selling price of the unit.

Already it's WAY too far to go by golf car from the southern to northern end or vice versa, even if all the bridges and tunnels were in place. A lot of Villagers would rather not have to drive their cars, so a good little light rail system would actually make a LOT of sense here.
Then what do you do for transportation once you get to your destination on the light rail?

Driving a golf cart is part of the lifestyle that folks buy in to. I personally do not drive our cart in the middle of the day during the summer. I would much prefer to drive our comfort controlled car. I do, however, love to drive the open air cart in the morning during the hot summer months. It is absolutely beautiful, even in the middle of summer. Driving the cart seems to be so much closer to nature and you can enjoy and appreciate the beauty around you much more than driving in the car. But.....that's just me.

Agree.....driving the cart to the pool. PERFECT!!!

On the upside the frogs during mating season used to keep me awake at night.
I have a state of the art hearing aid, and I can hear a mosquito pass wind from 200 yards away.
Unfortunately, all that wind passing, still drowns out a lot of human speech!

Really? I didn't realize that. Is this why The Villages is not being marketed as a golf community south of 44? I've read the people are saying south of 44 is more for nature walks and such but not so much for golf. Now I understand.

Nature walks once installed need very little maitainance.
Golf courses do!

All this per a new Villages map shown to me last Sunday by a Villages agent holding an open house. Fingers crossed but good things are coming!
So.....there WILL be championship golf south of 44. Thanks for clarifying this.

With so many complaints on the cost to play Championships, When this course is finished, I bet you can get a tee time just as easy as you can on any other championship course.
Our priority group plays 4 days a week, there are unbelievable amounts of tee times, ten years ago it was a different story.

Think about short term rental so you can take your time looking. Better to invest a bit of $$$ for a rental than buying and then finding out you could have found a better location or deal. You’re gunna love it here. Welcome.

I suspect The Villages Golf Stores will rent you one for a nominal fee
