Default Construction Update Video from the Drone's Eye View

Here’s another update video on the construction happenings in The Villages from a drone’s eye view. Also, in this video I explain one of the big mysteries in The Villages, the Bonds that we all pay when we buy a home here. I hope you enjoy the video and gain a better understanding of the workings of The Villages.

Great stuff, Don; especially the part on paying off the bond.

Another way to view it is once paid off, the yearly savings (or return on one's investment) is tax free.

Another consideration on paying off the bond......depends on your age. Since I view this age as cash flow dependent knowing I will not outlive the bond by a long shot there is no personal benefit to paying it off.

Thank you Don for both the detailed discussion of the bond as well as the excellent video from the drone. Admittedly, I had to pay a great deal of attention (as you planned?) since both were going on at once.

Very comprehensive info. I had to watch the video twice, once to listen and then turn it to silent and watch the pictures. Both excellent!

Hi. We are building in the Village of Monarch Grove. You mention in your video the Bond, Assessment fee and Maintenance fee. I am familiar with the bond fee and $159 monthly fee but what is the other one? I don't think we are aware there are 3 fees and not 2. Thanks for your reply. I don't think I want to wait for your new video. By the way - we look forward to your drone updates. It's great to see the progress from up north! Thanks so much!
