Probably from state highway funds.

I have lived here long enough to see many, many tempests in teapots settled. But for some odd reason no one comes on and says, WOW, that was taken care of.

There was hue and cry when the "wall" went up, and now that gate is doing pretty well and the precedent is keeping a lot of not needed golf carts from outside The Villages on the South side.

I may be a Pollyanna, but thank God, I am not as dumb as I look.

The house next to me sold before it could be posted on the Village site.
Can't get any faster.

We didn't even list our first one in Hadley. Someone knew we were eventually planning to move here full time and they asked us to sell it to them.

Mclin and Burnsed handled the closing and we were looking for another home in The Villages with Jim McLaughlin.

How many developers are selling, building and closing on 200 to 300 homes per month?
Most across the country would think they have died and gone to heaven if they had the slowest rate in TV.

Maybe the slow down in the rate takes it from explosive to wild?

Reductions (or increases) are significant only when one knows the from which the numbers come/came. There will always be a certain number of new and resale available. The variance can only be plus or minus above that.

The develovers have crews to keep working and price increases to avoid a. In many instances the least cost to the builder could easily be build now and let sit in inventory. Not only least cost but higher profit margins as they will be pricing at current market which will usually be up. And building material costs of last year or even two years ago.

An operation the size of TV has financial options unavailable to smaller entities.

I don't think the TV will stumble in the closing years.

The variance being experienced in measuring terms would be labeled as noise on the curve!

I've never heard that they are widening CR 466 - is this something new?
I also haven't heard of a bridge assessment - just an article in the online newspaper speculating about the possibility.

Are these actual issues?

What latest IRS probe.......something new?

Or, based on international events, personal investment performance, and economic uncertainties folks just might be reluctant to make major economic and lifestyle changes. I doubt that sex on the square (or electrical box) would have a negative impact.

11,000 plus posts and you never heard that 466 was to be four lanes from Colony to 441?
The bridge over Lake Sumter on Morse Blvd needs some shoring up.

No. They are not. Just speculation, rumors and innuendo's.

The slow sales as I see it is, The homes especially court yard villas are
overpriced, I'm gonna get flak but check the prices , I just saw one
cyv for sale for 319 thousand pictures and all , maybe worth 260

I think a lot of people will put a very high price, if they get the over priced sale it pays to sell it, nothing to lose and much more money to gain.

Yes, it's 466A! The highway is Lake County responsibility and the bridge Sumter County. Neither have anything to do with sales In TV IMHO.

I find the discussion regarding sales interesting but not unusual. As a development enters deeper into the final phase it's only natural for sales to slow a bit over time. By anybody's imagination, sales are still very very good. The marketing strategy of selling TV is exceeded by no one.
