The main reason that we have so... many rentals is the fact that we have so... many folks that want to come down as a snowbird during Nov to April timeframe to try out The Villages before they purchase here. We do not have a ton of regular investors that do not live here. We have a lot of residents that buy a smaller house because they are only going to be here for 2-3 months. Then they decide that they want to live here for a longer period of time during the year so they buy a bigger house. They end up keeping the smaller home and renting it out to the snowbirds. Unfortunately a lot of snowbirds feel we do not have enough rentals when they try to come Jan to Mar timeframe. Please contact me if you are looking for a rental or wanting to buy a home here in The Villages! Thank you!

Well, many Villagers are not year round residents; therefore, homes are available throughout the year when they are absentee owners. Hope this helps!

There are so many great opportunities here that investors are buying up many homes.

Also, a large number of our buyers are now 40-45 years old and are buying a home now while prices are depressed, renting for a few years and then using it as their retirement home.

Hope this helps.
