The Best Home Location In The Villages Florida

The Villages Florida is a self-contained retirement community with nearly 130,000 residents. While The Villages has an abundance of recreation and commercial amenities, your home’s location relative to these amenities will impact your ability to fully enjoy a lifestyle that is second-to-none.

When deciding location, focus on the major commercial amenities. No matter where you buy in The Villages there will be a selection of all the different types of recreation amenities nearby.  So your goal should be to select a home that fits your feature requirements that’s located convenient to the major center of commercial activity: The Villages Hospital and Medical Center along US 441, major stores along US 441, Spanish Springs Town Square, and Lake Sumter Landing.

Light commercial amenities. Small shopping centers that include a supermarket, bank, gas station, and pharmacy are strategically placed such that no matter where you buy you’ll have one nearby, except in locations south of CR-44 which is in the early stages of development. 

Your home’s location not only will affect how easy it is for you to fully enjoy The Villages, it will have a major effect on the future market value of the home. Homes that are long distances from the major center of commercial activity will not increase in value as much as comparable homes that are.  Other locations to avoid are homes:

  • Near sludge disposal plants.
  • Backing or fronting a busy street. While such homes when sold new carry a premium price, as a resale they tend to be heavily discounted.
  • Near Neighborhood and Regional Recreation Centers. pickle-ball and tennis start at 7 am and go on until dark.
  • Within “ear-shot” of the railroad tracks running 24/7 along US 301.
  • Near any sports complex, e.g., softball fields.

Meet with me before you meet with a developer’s sales representative. I’ll see that you have all the information you need to get your “dream home” for the lowest price possible in a good location. Disappointed buyers are those that make an emotional purchase without considering location.

Remember The Villages Sales Rep represents the seller, never you.
