It is still the fastest selling community in Fla. Much of the new inventory is composed of designers and premieres. They are still selling at a steady clip even if it is slower than in the past. Most developments wish they had the villages sales rate.

"Land under the bridge is sinking", I did read about that but haven't attended any District Meetings regarding details surrounding this problem. What land are they talking about? The land under the bridge I would think would be water or swamp. Is the Bridge sinking or in danger of sinking because the footings were not built to hold the weight of all the traffic? I wonder why the problem still wouldn't be the Sumter county responsibility unless the ground that is sinking has nothing to do with the bridge.

Regardless, this issue still has nothing to do with less home sales IMHO.

Here is a recent thread regarding an article that was in the on-line news a few weeks ago.

Over a 100,000 people, live here. That says something about The Villages!!! ?????? I'd be curious what the average stay (in years) is at The Villages. Meaning from when you buy, until you sell and leave?

Don't forget the FROGS if you want an accurate profile.

who will buy a designer for over 500k.....unless its on a golf lot... or has numerous upgrades?

anxious to see how sales will go when the prices are that high....

I think that was a selling ploy. "better buy now because when fruitland park opens the homes will double in value"

I was hoping when I bought that it would be true. But that's not why I bought.

What consequences?

There are many designers that have all kinds of additions and kicks; some as big as 2500 sq. ft. ... and are on spectacular view lots that have sold for over $500 in the last six months.

I think Janmcn was talking about a stripped down designer and that doesn't sound plausible.

When plans for the Fruitland Park expansion were presented to the FP elected officials last year, Gary Moyer (not to be confused with Gary Morse) stated that designer homes would start at $500,000 and CYV's at $250,000. These homes will not have any bonds attached to them, so supposedly the higher prices will have to include the infrastructure.

But you are correct that plans could change depending on the market. Mark Morse is known to change course on a dime. Remember all the discussion about a second hospital and shopping center being built near Brownwood, which eventually got canceled.

There were many threads on the FP development.

After this winter in Boston and the rest of the NE US , probably more people than you can shake a stick at.
