Default WE JUST BOUGHT SITE UNSEEN.

Here I am talking about the Villas etc and all of a sudden our sales lady called us today...Gave us a good deal and we have a contract on a Designer Jasmine, site unseen and closed on our home at the same time. We are homeless and a bit nervous. Hey Kar Guy- We are neighbors--- Duval!!! Help me Rhonda!!!!

So technically you were never homeless, good for you DD, so it looks like you don't need the preview. I thought you were set on buying a villa. We also have a Jasmine, we have really enjoyed it, didn't buy sight unseen but we did close by mail which was different.

Hey DD, I just knew you would end up in Duval. Do you know what street? Closed on mine today. Now you can come to the Villages on your preview and enjoy yourself. Things will get hectic. By the way go to the Duval site: http://villageofduval.googlepages.com Bamafan, Roll Tide Football is here :hot:

Oh Bama!

I know.... Wasn't I just saying Villa, Villa, Villa. And then a pretty Designer winks her eye and I'm off and running!

Yup- We have an address- Its (I had to go look) tada!!!! 2757 Persimmon Loop! We close on 9-26 AUGH!!!!!!

So you have a Jasmine????? How did you handle the dark LR? I didn't realize that would be a problem. Oh- Got a good deal AND a walk in shower!!! How long have you been in your home???? You know, give me the scoop!!!!

We bought in January 2005. As for the dark LR we had a large solar tube put in near the kitchen sink, it lights up not only the middle of the kitchen quite nicely (on a Sunny day you need to wear sunglasses* 8) in the kitchen) but also throws light into the dining room, we also put a small tube in the guest bath which lights up both the bath and hallway. I never really thought that the LR was all that dark, we have the stacking sliding door walls to the lanai, what do you have??

Darby...congrats to you; I certainly hope your realtor took and sent you lots of pictures (of the house, lot, views, floors, carpet, cabinets, neighborhood, etc) and gave you the full spec sheet on what comes with the house so that you have at least a 'virtual' picture of what you're getting into.

Are you still coming down next week to do the 'preview'...or in your case a 'post'view.

Dreams do come true...good for you.

Golfnut,

Can you post more pictures of your kitchen? The one with the solar light looks good, but we would like to see more.

We are TV wannabes and trying to get as much info from current owners.

Thanks.
