We found our house on realtor .com. Had a list of homes when we arrived,had a local realtor showed him my list went to the first house and bought it. We were in the looking stage for two years and when we were ready we knew exactly what we were looking for. Good source of weeding out homes before you visit and not get overwhelmed when you arrive.

Trulia is great. We started there and switched to Focus on The Villages which only shows The Villages resales. You can search by price, village, etc and it just lists Villages resales. Good luck.

Totally agree. Realtor dot com is a great tool when looking, and you can easily narrow down your search. A save function makes comparisons easy.

Ziprealty.com, Zillow.com and redfin.com are all very helpful. Each site has it's own style and a few features unique to itself.

I just checked and it appears redfin.com does not service the villages.

I just found another one (not sure of the village) but it is a pool home and the inside would not need anything done........

3457 Bloomington Place, The Villages FL - Trulia

After staying in two very large well done homes, to go to the "models" which they admitted were "shrunken" versions, was a bit offputting..........and since there is such a huge selection of homes to buy in TV, at least by doing some research, we'll have a rough idea..........I will try your website......

Do want to avoid being overwhelmed.........been there, done that the first visit. Again, appreciate your input. Thankyou.
Just remember that to check to see how old the mechanical systems and roof are. They are very costly to replace.

We love Trulia! When we were looking for homes we made huge lists off Trulia and virtually ALL of the homes that we finally looked at (and then bought) we got off there. One of the things that I liked best about it, is that unlike many of the realtors company sites Trulia will tell you how long the property has been listed which is a HUGE help when it comes to negotiation time.
