Hi Bala,

I am a buyer's agent for Solivita and have over 60 cleints on my books currently getting regular updates.

Why Solivita? Is it for you? Most people who contact me are checking out numerous retirement communities in Florida to decide which one to pick. Let me give you something to think about – size matters. In your search for a place to settle down do pay attention to the size of the community. It makes a huge difference when it comes to the social scene. Anything under 2,500 to 3,000 homes is really pretty small when it comes to a wide range of activities. Solivita already has 3,600 homes and 6,000 residents today. When it's done you'll be looking at 5,900 homes and close to 10,000 people. Those are the kind of numbers that help assure stability in fees going forward and to assure that you'll always find other residents with similar interests. You don't have to get in your car to find something to do in Solivita, it's all available by golf cart.

For Solivita the website of the builder/developer, Vitalia (formerly Avatar), is really the most complete source of information on the facilities here, here is a link:

Here’s a link to their monthly newsletter that will give you a great idea about how much there is to do in Solivita:

If you are a golfer, here’s the link to the golf club: The golf courses are open to the public, but Solivita residents get a discount. You can also become a member, if you want to. About 10% of the residents are members of the golf club. If you don’t golf, you don’t pay for golf in Solivita.

Everyone asks about the cost of living in a place like Solivita and it is an important question to answer in you search for a new place to call home. Click on my picture and ask for a summary of the costs and what you get for your money.

If you would like, I can register you with Vitalia and have some one contact you about their Discovery Days program. You might find it interesting.

In case you missed, we’ve got all the Solivita floor plans, both new construction and resales on our 55places website. Here’s the link and then click on the “Models” tab.

Did you know that you can check out my references and the references of the other agents that answer right here on Trulia? Just click on our pictures to go to our profiles and read what our clients say about us. Pick the person you’d be most comfortable to work with. Of course I hope it’s me, but if not then best of luck to you.

I think you get the idea that there are lots of choices - and lots of agents to help you - might want to connect with one and allow them to assist.

I agree with Mark below.

Another alternative is the new and coming adult community of Trilogy, among the rolling hills of Clermont. They have $0 electric bill homes, due to all solar package options. ALmost every lot backs to conservation or green area views. All amenities similar to Solivita plus much nicer home floorplans. And the community home is amazing, including state of the art demonstration kistchen and several "themed" entertainment / game rooms.

Did I forget to say it is much closer to Orlando than Solivita? And no traffic to get in and out of the community. If you would like to receive a complete information package for this community including DVD, just contact me directly at or click on my photo, then on contact me.

Feel free to reach out to me via - I lived there for 8 years and have been selling there since 2001 (including working for the builder). It's a great, very active community; homes are quality built and amenities are better than any I've seen in any other active adult community. If you are still working and have to commute, that can be a challenge with limited access so you need to take that in to consideration.

You need to make sure that at least one party in the house is at least 55 years old.
