Default Oops, I really did it this time

This is my third trip to The Villages over the past 3 1/2 years, the first extended visit. A few days ago, I was driving around and happened to see a house for sale that looked pretty nice. I checked it out on-line and it turns out that it was almost exactly what I was looking for. I made an offer and it was accepted.

I was planning to return to Minnesota in the spring but it looks like I'll be staying right here instead. I can't wait to become a full time Villager.

Congratulations and good luck! We feel very fortunate that we were in a position to buy a house here and have zero regrets!

You will never have a regret. We did pretty much the same thing. Welcome.

Magnificent! Sounds very much how we felt on our one visit and buy a house tour in 2012. Never ever looked back. The smartest thing we did in many a moon. Zero regrets, and lots of satisfaction.

Very best wishes to you.

We came for a week to go to Daytona (2012), we are now frogs here, and loving every minute of it. Welcome to TV.

Thanks! You know, I never really cared for Kool-Aid. I prefer to think of this as being infected with The Villages Virus (apparently no vaccination has been developed yet).

See you around town!
