They need to get rid of that corny song. It's reminiscent of the Lawrence Welk and Mitch Miller Shows. No one wants to live with their parents. Like it or not the retirees relate to The Dead, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell and CSNY.
This place has everything that was fun when we were young. Sell that.

The bridge over Lake Sumter on Morse Blvd needs some shoring up.
You are speaking of 466A, not 466!

Just my honest opinion, but some of the new houses offered for sale are just ugly inside, from the color of the kitchen cabinets to the granite and flooring. Some of the master baths have garden tubs, which may be OK for some, but not for most. I have a designer house and I chose my options, and am really shocked at what many of the new designer houses are going for. I live in Charlotte, and go to open houses all the time and, when I come home, I always say to my husband, "Thank God we bought when we did". I'd still be freezing my butt off up north!

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.
Where do you get that number of $260,000? How do you know that's what it's worth?

In economics class, I was taught that something is worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it.

There are many CYVs selling for $300,000 and higher. In fact, there are some CYVs that people have sold for up to $500,000.

Dr. Winston--I.ve been here now about 5 months, prior to that I lived up north and I was on the comp. just about every day for about 2 years checking prices on homes from the villages and realtors, Ifelt then and now I have a very good idea about the prices, and most today, I say most are overpriced, You can go nearby and get twice the house you pay for in the villages, I know the answer lifestyle, well nearby has the same advantages as the villages, they have everything the villages has except katie belle.
Thats my opinion, most residents won't admit because they are more or less stuck here, so naturally they will come up with the good, like no snow, well then no skiing either.

Twice the house and all the advantages (what does that mean?), sorry you made a mistake.
I ain't stuck here, I can leave whenever I want.

He's right if you don't play free exec golf, softball, archery, shoot air guns, play croquet or lawn bowling, like woodworking or join any clubs. Last I heard there were over 1,000 you could join.

Bogey, First I didn't say I made a mistake, I said you can get a house nearby for halve
the price you would pay for in the villages, As far as the advantages you have the same advantages as a resident except golf and the centers,

I'm not knocking the villages just saying the truth and not making it out better than what it is. Lijke I said anything neg. about the villages the same answers , well I don't have to shovel snow, no kidding, you can't ski either. It's a nice place here but being honest there is a lot of problems here, with driving and the attitude of some people.

When new houses are built without giving the purchaser a choice as to trim & extras--they sit on the mkt & dilute the mkt--spec homes do nothing but dilute the mkt--custom homes drive it up, also despite--the closer to Wildwood & Fruitland Pk all not help sales

A barrier is a comfort factor
