Default Different Countys of the Villages

Is there any advantage to buying a house in one of the 4 county's that the Villages sit's in over another? Either tax wise or public utility's wise or any other reason?
Thanks

The Villages is comprised of three counties (not four): Lake, Marion, and Sumter.

Holy smoke. While I was having dinner we grew into another county?

Velcro - just jesting, but you asked a question with many responses. For example, if you live in Lake County, your home will not have a bond. Sumter and Marion counties both permit bonds. Millage rates will vary, etc. You should go to each of the 3 county websites to see how they vary. In the case of Lake County you should check on the City of Lady Lake and the City of Fruitland Park. Most of the Villages is in unincorporated Sumter County.

No matter where you land, if you do your research you'll be very happy here. New or Preowned - TV is just a wonderful place with fabulous people. I wish you success.

It appears that Sumter County is the best financed.

The new homes in Fruitland park will have bonds. They have already been issued and sold.

I think that Sumter County has the largest % of Village homes. I can remember when Sumter County was dirt poor and now they have a lot of money and power.

Those bonds are not the same as the bond assessment on individual homes in Sumter County. Lake County does not permit that so the developer increases the price on homes in the new area as an alternative.

This is how most of the country does it....The cost of the infrastructure is added to the price of the home.

Do your homework, look at the crime in the newer area's of the villages, make that a deciding factor too.

I don't know Queen from Adam, however I think he was trying to be helpful and factual, not critical.
Sorry for the hijack, back to the OP's question.

Oldmantime made an interesting comment about crime in newer areas of TV .

And just what is that statement based on? You jest right?

If not then it is a predjudiced throw away, baseless remark!

Thanks OldManTime. Didn't think crime was much of a problem there. What are we talking about quality of life,petty or major crime? Where would I fine the crime stats?

In any community of 100,000 people there will be some level of crime. I challenge anyone to statistically prove that any particular type of crime here is greater than the national average (except maybe for golf cart thefts). Start by looking up FBI statistics.

We have some regular posters on TOTV who could easily address this question. Former LEOs!

I checked the crime stats for the villages in Sumter and like I expressed earlier didn't think much about it and for good reason. According to the stats TV crime is wayyyyyy below the state & national average. Looks like the good guys are winning!!!!!!!!
