Must take into effect the tax impacts on both sides.


Now you have a more accurate analysis.
And factor in the unlikely odds that the home will sell for less because of a bond...

I ask, if there is no reason, why are home south of 44 20 to 30 % less than homes north of 44? I say it is because of the Wildwood City Tax and lack of amenity. Yes, the homes are wonderful, but you are not really in The Villages down there. Sorry, I mean no offense, but buyer beware if you plan to buy south of 44.

Having to drive 10-15 minutes is no big deal. I remember traffic in Atlanta. Traffic and distances here in TV and south of 44 are no problem. Don't let anyone tell you not to buy south of 44.

I bought in and love the Village of Fenney.

I have a hybrid car that gets better fuel economy than my golf cart. Still, I prefer to take that cart wherever and whenever I can. Maybe I’m in my second childhood and if so I have a lot of company in The Villages!

Still wondering why you think those who buy in the new area are not capable of making informed decisions, about taxes, and amenities.
Our oldest and his wife are both doctors, and the new area is where they are buying. Since they are not a brick and mortar shopper, stores are unimportant to them.

He finds those that are so negative against the new area, must be of his grandparents age. Needing the comfort zone of stores, and what ever amenities they need to cling to. He and his wife, are the bikers, runners, softball, basketball, and golf is not as important to them as his parents, and grandparents. He is not a fan of golf carts. Would rather drive his Benz.

As he put it those who retire at 50, need a more active lifestyle. New area gives them that experience

I started this because I thought it was amazing how far in advance the developer is thinking in terms of homes to already have plans for 60,000 new homes south of 470. But then it turned into the north vs south civil war, which is a shame.

On the lack of golf courses south of 44, I am a golfer that plays twice a week on championship courses and maybe once a week on Executive down south. It is not an problem for me to drive 30 minutes or less and get a free cart and play up north. I am 60 now so as I get older, hopefully a lot older, I may not want to drive. When this happens I suspect there will be at least a few championship courses down here and probably more executive courses if I want to dial back to just executives. Again, I am talking 15 years or more from now. I will also say there are very few golfers on my street and that really surprised me as I began to form my golf group down here.

Right now the amenities they have south of 44 are perfect for me. Connectivity, I really don’t care. More trails to ride my bike on, fantastic. Shopping, I have Amazon Prime for anything I want to buy and I don’t have to drive to a store. Groceries, a Publix 10 minutes away and WalMart in Leesburg less than 30 minutes away. Again, for me and my wife, these are no big deal and with the homes that are planned, the shopping will come.

Bottom line, we did our research, knew the bond amount and taxes, knew it was not connected and no guarantee of a date to complete, but love our lot and home down here in the frontier. We look forward to more people joining us as they build like crazy.
