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.
It's a shame that it didn't work out for you. If you had been studying intensely for about two years and determined that the TV homes were all over priced then why did you buy in TV? How can one make such a fallacious statement that most residents won't admit that they are stuck here? That is certainly not our experience or anyone we know here.

When you sell will you be selling at the going rate or will you sell for what you think it is really worth?

It doesn't say how long sales have been slow, but shouldn't sales be higher in January and February when more people are visiting? This doesn't bode well for the Fruitland Park section, where bare-bones designers are supposed to start at $500,000.

"sort of" looks like Lyle's data is MLS Resales. Maybe I'm looking at it wrong? The Villages not belonging to MLS---his data wouldn't reflect the sale of new homes by Property of The Villages.

I doubt it that they will be priced higher.

Our rep told us that they always sell more homes here in May and June. That is when we bought here, both times.

I'll agree only as far as you may be able to get a bigger house for the money but not even half the HOME you get here!

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.
For the umpteenth time, it is not the bridge that needs work (which the county is responsible for), it is the land under the bridge which is sinking and needs shored up. The estimate for this work ranges up to 1.5 million, and will be paid by the district ie the residents.

What's with the "okay" you sound like Bugsy Moran. For the record I was responding to your previous post when your comment about "not saying I didn't like it here" was posted.

It's not a case of not liking to hear anything negative about TV. It is however the constant complaints backed by an erroneous claim that most residents are stuck here. You could have fooled me though about your liking it here.

You didnt have to say it one more time pivo. I never questioned the fact that you get less house in TV than elsewhere. We were well aware of that but it didn't change our minds in the least.

Beechie--- you couldn't agree on what, is your nose out of joint , because I mentioned
you can get twice the home for price wise as you would in the villages.

It doesn't bother I chose to live where I want.

so I'll say it again.

You can get twice the house nearby than you will get in the villages.

But I still like it here,I like it here, I like it here

has nothing to do witj prices elsewhere

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.
And posters.

Pivo you don't need to reiterate anything.

You clearly missed looneycat's post which is to say a house is just a place where people live. A home is truly where the heart is. Laurie2 summed it up by stating the "lifestyle" angle.

I hear you pivo so I'll echo your sentiments to all...Pivo really likes it in TV

Most of the Seniors today are extremely educated and I do not think any of us are as you say "Stuck Here". They do their research and they do not buy without thinking out the consequenses. I do not know about you, but personally I am not "Stuck Here." If I ever feel we are not happy any more, I will put a For Sale Sign up, and move on. I for one am "Not Stuck."
