With 60,000 more homes announced above the current added 24,000, where are the 12 new 27 hole championship golf courses? Seems the ratio based on announced plans will be way off. What am I missing? I am only aware of one new golf course in the current plans. The Villages was built as a golfing community. Maybe that is changing. But not so with the few I have talked to.

Not sure they have "pushed" the golfing community slogan for a while. The website is:
The Villages®

Fun and affordable active adult community where everything you could possibly want, need, or dream of doing in your retirement years is just a golf car ride away...




I think it's very clear, their vision has changed years ago and they are assuming less golf demand............just like the rest of the United States is experiencing.

Surely you must have noted how they can create scarcity out of plenty. Even I remember when they weren't ever going south of 466A and I'm only 51 LOL. I think we heard the term "Final Buildout" for about 2 years.

It's possible that this is the mother of all real estate bubbles.....but personally I'm building in Linden.

You will love it here. I live north of 44 but it is beautiful south of 44. There will be so much available by next spring no worries. As far as commercial I don’t use all the services by cart from where I live there are many a few minutes by car and fit my needs. You will find your nitch for sure. This is a good life here it’s what you make it and my advice to you stay away from the negative people. Happy home hunting

Don't forget that many homes are available already built, and either barely lived in or not lived in at all after a year. There were some beautiful homes in Fenney that I saw for sale early this year - they had been built last year, the property owner rented it out for a few months, then put it on the market. You still get the warranty, all appliances are brand new, everything is in tip-top-shape, but the landscaping is more settled, the neighborhood is more filled out, and you have more access to "stuff" in and around the villages.

So, ultimately more than 300,000 residents? That will be a sight to see!

Not to hijack this thread, but can you tell me about your grocery delivery? Who do you use? What about persons like milk and ice cream? TIA

Geeesshhh after reading these posts were very happy we chose to live in the northern part of The Villages. Less traffic, more golf, more shopping and less taxes.
