Victor, come visit The Villages and I will introduce you to a great villa. The Villages has many floor plans and some of the smaller sq ft properties are near the golf course. I question your request for info on a 1 bd/ 1 ba. Are you asking about our older area? There is two Executive 9 hole golf courses and one Country Club on the Eastside of The Villages. I do not believe the term cottage would apply to the smaller homes in that area. Feel free to ask more questions.

yes absolutely there is a resale market for a 1/1. Obviously the number of buyers looking for a 1/1 is much less however there are very few ever one the market. If it is priced well and staged nicely and marketed well by a professional that does this everyday...it will re-sell. I have one question, where is a 1/1 patio villa on a golf course in The Villages or is it a courtyard villa? I've been in this community 6 days a week for almost 10 years and know it very well and don't know of a Cottage (which is a floorplan in the patio villa series) on a golf course. I do know there are some courtyard villas on golf courses though. I will also add that the resale value on a 2/2 is much better and will sell faster than any 1/1. What price are they asking for the home? You might want to check out some more options.
Good luck and you will love The Villages.

Victor, for some reason your question just popped up on my sight although if is dated Jan. 28, 2009. I have no idea where your 1 bedroom home is, but if it fits your needs and you like it you've pretty much answered your own question. The property isn't for everyone, but if it works for you it can work for someone else. It's already Octobr 2009 so this is probably a non issue for you, but wanted to at least respond. My best to you and if I can be of any other help please let me know.
