According to their website, the homeowner pays rent for the lot. They don't own the land.

The constant thing in The Villages are rumors. Ignore them. Along with the Costco, Trader Joes rumors.

Well it's true about Costco building in the general area, Ocala to be precise. It will be near FL route 200. They've bought the land and are just waiting for the necessary permits etc.

I didn't hear this from my hair stylist today either! Rather I heard it from a GM from a store in the Tampa/St. Pete area.

What does Costco and and Trader Joe's have to do with what the original poster here has to say?

Why do people in here have a need to confuse things?

I would like to know the answer to the original poster's question before I purchase.

I played it once last year and I would agree with this comment except that the greens were so much better than what we play on in The Villages.

Although it's a mildly interesting rumor, it makes no sense to me. Remember ... follow the money. I don't see any financial reason for the Developer to buy CCC.
If I recall correctly they are all manufactured homes.In many cases with manufactured homes, the people don't own the land on which their home sits.

Could that be the case at Continental?

What did you copy and paste? It says RENT/HOA on their site.

What does that mean?

I wouldn't base my decision to purchase anything based on peoples opinions, especially on TOTV. I would highly recommend that you do your research on reputable websites that only have facts. In this case the Continental Country Club or The Villages news releases or how about the Sumter County real estate transactions. Just sayin. Buyer beware.

When you follow the link on that page to the Fourstar site and lookup a home for sale there is a caveat:

"Additional fees for amenities may apply
Four Star Homes is not responsible for quoting current monthly fees, lot rent, or any dues/fees associated with the community or home. Those figures are the responsibility of the buyer and community manager/owner to obtain and disclose."

So it looks like Fourstar is selling the mobile home, not the lot.

Thank you. And that is exactly what I am trying to do. And this has been a pretty good source of information here.

However, it has also been a frustrating mess of people in "America's Friendliest..." seeking to win a debate, insult people for asking a question, and having no tolerance for a difference of opinion. Does not leave a good impression for those of us looking into buying here.
