If you're living here now there's a good chance that the next square will be further from your home than Brownwood is today. They own a ton of property down here and there is no end in sight regarding how far south they will build and a new square may well be south of 470 on the way to Webster, who knows. It's only 5 miles to Kristine Way to go shopping for food, gas, banks, etc. I'm sure there are lots of homes north of 44 that are 5 miles away from a Publix, etc. We have been here since May of 2017 and it really has not been a problem. That being said, we are quite a distance from large stores such as Walmart, Target, Belks, etc. but I have a feeling that with the number of people what will be living down here the other stores will be coming sooner than later. I don't have a problem with any of it, I'm just glad that the building in Fenney is completed, it's a lot more quiet and cleaner now that the construction traffic is out of here.

They chose a resale in The Village of Tamarind Grove off St. Charles and Buena Vista. It's a 2011 built masonry 3 BR CYV with everything done inside plus a birdcage saltwater pool on a corner lot, they paid $400K and now they're just a 20 minute cart ride from from LSL or Brownwood. They were very happy with their new home. This is their backyard.

I don't see what this proves, happens every day, going in both directions.

As to lack of everything......
I remember when we and others had to go to Ocala for the Home Depot. I don't recall a lot of worrying.

Just proves that on a drizzly day, people will find anything to b%$$ and moan about...even people that aren't affected by living south of 44.

They lose sales every day. If everyone wanted to live South of 44 re-sales up North would be at highly discounted prices. That is not the case, there are hundreds of people that choose to buy re-sales north of 44 I believe there are over 2000 re-sales per year in TV most of which are north of 44, not everyone want's to be down here but quite a few do and it's great that buyers have that choice to make.

Does this shopping plaza have a Bed Bath and Beyond, Target, JoAnn's, Best Buy, Kohl's, Kirkland, Pier One, Michael's, Staples, etc, etc, etc?

I guess if you need to visit all those stores on a regular basis, and you can’t take the commute, then that should be a factor for where you live. For most of us, it’s a non issue. I live just north of 44, and shop at Sam’s usually once a week. For me, I don’t need a store within walking distance.
