Default Ages of residents North vs Southern Area

Hello. I have been reading about the newer areas of the Villages (southern areas) being sold to younger residents while the northern areas are mostly resales to older residents. Is this true or pretty common? Thank you. MarvinH

Just as many "younger" folks buying resales.
One's age does not dictate where folks are buying.
"More younger" buying new.....probably.

As has been said by many before age here is a relative number....usually means/affects nothing/nobody.

Usually just an in correct notion some (that do not live here ) have about age.

One thing for sure is all of the new assisted living and senior apartments are north and there are a lot of them being built.

Most everything that is being built is in the northern Villages. Not much down south at this point.

For what it's worth, I've heard that the average Villager, once here, moves five more times within The Villages.

We're "north". On our block we have all age ranges from 55 to 85. A fair number of renters who seem to trend younger than those who own the homes they live in.

I live in a village between 466 and 27/441. Our community is actually getting younger and that is common. The reason? Those that originally bought 20 years ago or more are - sadly - either passing on or getting too old to live alone. On my cul-de-sac about half of us are the second or 3rd owner and the average age is moving toward the low to mid 60s.

Pretty true? -probably
Pretty common? - probably not

What is most important to you?
* Young neighbors who might not be full-time and would be renting out their home or full-time residents who are welcoming?
* Do you need established shopping areas or are you content to wait for shopping areas to grow?
* Do you want mature landscaping and a larger lot or is that not important?
* Do you need to be close to developed exec and champ golf or is that something you can wait for?
* Do you need convenience or is that something you can wait for?
* Will you mind paying the bond on a new property or prefer to buy one with all or partial bond already paid off?
* Would you prefer to buy the bare bones new model home or one with many/most if the improvements completed - like attic stairs or a pool or plantation shutters or a golf cart garage, etc. or pay the after-market price for them?

There is so much more than age to be considered when contemplating moving to the Villages.

Another thread that has turned into Northern villagers highlighting some possible negatives and ignoring the many positives of the South end of TV.

I think you see something that is not there.
I have read all previous posts and see nothing detrimental written about locations north or south.

not really, not yet, but it's probably just a matter of time before it does.

Another factor on choosing a home is the "Bond" cost. Most of the homes north of 466A have a low bond or no bond remaining that will be passed on to the new buyer. If memory serves me right, bonds north of 466A were $20K or lower less compared to the new bond pricing now around $40K.
