I would skip Wildwood. The apartments there are sketchy at best.
I agree. The OP should visit here first and then decide whether he likes it.

Visiting is not enough. I recommend renting something for the entire year to see if you can put up with the 2-season lifestyle. The novelty may or may not wear off after a while.

Find a long term rental inside of TV. Otherwise you will not get the true feeling of everything that TV has to offer. You should not have a problem finding a place inside TV for a 6 month to one year rental (some furnished, some bring your own furnishings).

Thank you in advance.
The Quarters and Oakleaf Villages apartment complexes are in Lady Lake, minutes from Spanish Springs. And PepperTree in Wildwood is minutes from Brownwood. All three complexes are large, well kept and landscaped. Some others in the area are nice, like the once just to the west of Rolling Acres, but qualify as low income housing. So that might not be available to you.

As others have said, you might find a good deal on a rental within TV itself. Maybe even consider renting a manufactured home on the original side of TV.

I will second the suggestion of renting a home in The Villages.

I will add the suggestion of renting a home that is in your price market. You will end up with a better idea of your future level of comfort.

I would not suggest renting a trailer home in the Historic District unless that is your price market.

In this manner you will be able to experience what your life would be like on a day to day basis.
