Investing in The Villages


I think this is the perfect time to invest in The Villages, Florida.  My last four real estate sales have been investors, three I represented the buyers and one was representing the seller.  There is a strong need for long term and short term rentals in The Villages, first lets discuss short term rentals.  When I first start a communication with an out of state buyer I send them maps, direct them to my website to learn about The Villages long before they ever step foot into The Villages!  I suggest if they can come here for a month staying in a rental to explore where in this massive community do they want to live.  I have pages on my website dedicated to helping people find the best place to enjoy what lifestyle they seek!

Two of my buyers quickly found long term rentals with year leases, both I was able to help them after being contacted by renters searching for a place.  Today I was contacted by somebody looking for a three-year rental due to accepting a job in The Villages.  With The Villages growing at an unbelievable rate folks looking for a retirement home and those coming here for employment need a home.

Another way to look at selling to investors is one of my recent buyers who purchased the largest home in a section that was in dire need of updating.  The home was built 1994 and with a complete remodel can be either rented of sold improving the neighborhood!

So, interested in discussing a great investment opportunity? Give me a call and we will build out a pro forma together!

Good morning Dick. Renting in The Villages to get your bearings before you buy is a great way to narrow your choices. Enjoy your day.

Dick, it is nice to hear The Villages allows short-term rentals.   Many communities in our area are not allowing this.
