Default Looking for a home at TV.

My wife and I are close to retiring and looking at homes there. We're planning to come down for a visit soon.
Is there a good website to look for all homes for sale? I looked at the listings on the real state page here but I wasn't sure if there was a place to see all homes for sale.

Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately, there is not just one site. You need to look at The Villages website at Homefinder - The Villages(R) Homes and Villas for Sale and also a MLS like The Villages Real Estate - The Villages FL Homes For Sale | Zillow

Yes and to add to this, The Villages website is the only place you can buy new homes. Not this one. (This website is a forum run by residents of the villages). There’s a larger selection now than a month ago! Good luck in your search.

A suggestion. Rent for at least a month here before buying anything.

Place is huge and a weekend is not nearly enough time to figure out where to buy.

Realtor.com has all home nationwide on the MLS. Just search “The Villages” on that site and you will find all MLS resales there. Byowner.com and search “The Villages” for sale by owner. All new home sales are only by The Villages and only available in the far southern area of The Villages.

My only advice? If you can swing it, when you find the right home, jump on it. You may not find another you like as much...

Yup, we have gotten outbid on three homes in the last two weeks. Two were listed for one day. BTW Zillow has mls listings and fsbo listings.

New people are often taken in by all the new developments south of 44 - do take a look at the historic side east of 27/441 there are lots of resales (bigger turnover due to the older people passing on) also some brand new properties where people have knocked down an old manufactured home. Saw a beautiful lakeside lot on Paradise Lake the other day ripe to build your own house. Our landscaping is mature with lots of Live Oaks - it's quiet (no through traffic like on Morse etc.) 10 minute golf cart ride to SS and lots of stores etc. Golf Cart access to Walmart/bealls/lowes/aldi and the new Bj's etc. etc.all on the east side of of 441 - prices are cheaper this side too 'cos the villages are pushing their stuff in the south. I have lived here for 20 years and just love it !!! Come see !!

Agree with this idea. If you haven't visited here before, you will be overwhelmed with The Villages.

Default I just did this so this may help

http://https://youtu.be/xN35bXCHrT0 I just went through this whole thing and did a YouTube channel on just the subject. This episode I talk about all of the information including the real estate information. I hope it helps.

Bought starter house & forever house here in "The Historic Side". Sold my car, everything is accessible by golf cart except Sams. Have a friend take me there when needed.
Live on Aloha Way, on the Lake, couldn't be happier. Larger lots & > 100 years old Oaks.
