I went to see the community and was told by a salesperson the townhomes have a bond of $13,000 and the single family homes have a bond of $17,000.

Most of the national builders are having this same problem. Pulte in the del Webb communities is a good example.

Default Golf cart access?

[QUOTE=John_W;1722485] If you're looking for property just outside TV at a lower price, I would check out Lakeside Landing

Can you easily drive a golf cart from Lakeside Landing to Lake Sumpter Landing?

It sounds like they are in the "Tire Choice" class of home builders.

Lakeside Landing is not even a mile from Arnold Palmer, take a look, they have a beautiful pool and putting green. I have neighbors who moved there.

Legally no, but they're only 200 yards from TV and many do have carts and just shoot down Rainey Trail.

A lot of misinformation here on this thread.
D R Horton has been building homes since 1978. Their HDQ is in Arlington, Texas. They built our home in Texas and many for others I have known. They are a publicly traded Corp and have a stellar reputation. Perhaps their quality has slipped; I don’t know but it has been excellent in the past. We all have different experiences . Our Story

So can you drive your street legal cart JUST on the public streets or the Multi-Modal path that is for Villages residents and guests?

Looks like a nice area.
