Busy Week, 4 Open Houses

By
Real Estate Agent with TOUCHSTONE REAL ESTATE

I joke that I can tell it’s Fall in The Villages, Florida when the color of the license plates change.  We lovingly call them Snowbirds and this place would not have what it has if not for them.  It is estimated the population of The Villages grows by about 30% somewhere around 40,000 people which means the infrastructure is built to handle them 5 or 6 months a year.  When they return north that leaves more for the full-time residents!

October is the beginning of “show them if you got them” when it comes to listing and to do that I host Open Houses Monday through Friday from 11:00 am until 2:00 pm most days.  So this week I have 4 lined up, here they are:

 

Open House

Tuesday, 10/4 and Thursday 10/6

11:00 until 2:00

1409 ARREDONDO DR

THE VILLAGES, FL

$399,900

MLS # W7847125

 

Open House

Wednesday, 10/5 and Friday 10/7

11:00 until 2:00

2051 PALO ALTO AVE

THE VILLAGES, FL

$469,000

MLS # G5060459

 

So if in the neighborhood please stop by!

Dick Betts I do believe I heard something about that yesterday, Dick. Certainly not what anyone needs right now.

Hi Dick- ah yes...the Fall migration of snowbirds.  Yes, you could always tell when The Season was in full bloom when every other license plate was from somewhere up north.
