How Big is The Villages® Community.

If you live in Florida or have ever visited Central Florida, you've more than likely heard of the giant retirement community named "The Villages". How big is The Villages, Florida?  It's a picturesque town, complete with almost any type of shop and culinary craving you might be looking for. Most people are used to a retirement community being a small subdivision or a gated community, but not The Villages® Community. They're a bit larger and have a bit more of a unique spin on what a retirement community should look like.

The Villages® Community takes up a 32 square miles. Now I know that doesn't sound like much, but this community stretches out over THREE counties! That's right; The Villages® Community has made its home in Lake, Sumter, and Marion Counties. So that means it's smack dab in the middle of Florida! If you were driving those 32 miles through this community, it would take you longer than you'd think it would take to travel 32 miles. That's really because of all there is to see and do, there's so much beauty in The Villages® Community to take in!

Within those 32 miles is more than just homes for our retirees, it also includes 50+ golf courses, three town squares (which are always lively and have an event or street party happening weekly), and well over 2000 clubs and activities for any of the 125,000 Villages residents! It even has its own hospital and is home to some of the best doctors and nurses around.

The Villages® Community is a perfect example that life doesn't end at 55+! This community even offers tours to determine if this is the lifestyle for you (aptly named The Villages Lifestyle Tour). Thirty-two miles might not seem like enough, but you'd be amazed at all the things you can do and discover here in The Villages® Community, Florida.

White Pelican Home Service can help you find a vacation rental and even help you find that perfect dream home! Click here to find out more.

Spring Weather & Temperatures in The Villages® Community.

The temperatures here in Central Florida are already heating up as we head into the Spring Season.Spring Weather and Temperatures in The Villages Florida For many snowbirds, this is the time to start packing up and heading for their Summer homes. Don't get out the sunblock just yet; Spring can be the most beautiful time of year in Florida with very comfortable temperatures.

Springtime in The Villages® Community boasts mild temperatures in the 70s and low 80s, with it creeping up to the 90s in early May. The rainy season doesn't come until the end of Spring or early Summer. This is the best time to go to the beach, theme parks, play golf, or hang out at the pool. You can still enjoy the pleasant weather without getting too hot or worrying about afternoon thunderstorms.

Wardrobes are a little different for folks who live in the Sunshine State. Flip flops and shorts are a must any time of the year, as well as keeping a light jacket on hand. It's also a good idea to keep an umbrella handy in case of a surprise afternoon shower.

Central Florida is a fantastic place to enjoy warm weather and a little sunshine. While our neighbors in the northern states are still trying to thaw out from the snow, we are enjoying stunning warm weather here in The Village® Community.

The Spring is the perfect time to check out all of what Central Florida has to offer. Click here to find the perfect vacation rental!

I inherited a home, now what?

Losing a loved one is never an easy process, and that's especially true when it comes to the estate after the passing. I inherited a home, now what? Hopefully, it can be done in an easy enough way, and everything is sorted accordingly. In some cases, someone may find themselves with a few new heirlooms or even the family home. In the case of inheriting a home from a deceased relative, there are only so many things one can do with this newly acclaimed property; sell it, rent it, or move into it.

Here you will find the best advice for each option.

Selling your inherited home may be a bit emotional, but this could be your best option to get the most out of the home and no longer have it in your possession. When selling the home, you are also responsible for any remaining balance on any possible mortgages. You also will avoid capital gain taxes when you sell, which can save a considerable amount.

Renting holds about the same responsibilities, but stretched out over the amount of time you decide to rent the space. With this comes the pressure of keeping up with any repairs the home may need without the benefits of living in the space being worked on. This option is best for short-term and if the home is in good standing as is. Otherwise, it would be wiser to move on to the final option.

Finally, moving into the inherited home is the last and most sensible option. Although it is a "free" home, you may be taking on payments either for the home itself or a mortgage. Utility fees would be taken over as well. But if this new living situation is a step above your current one, this could be a blessing in disguise.

In the unfortunate event of a loved one's untimely departure, it is best to keep yourself prepared and knowledgeable about what's to come. An inherited home has the potential to be a money maker or home sweet home, you decide.

White Pelican Reality can help you decide what to do with your new home whatever you may choose. Contact our office today.

How do I rent my home out in The Villages® Community?

The Villages® Community is a fantastic place to live and play in retirement. How do I rent my home out in The Villages, Florida? While there are retirees who move down to enjoy full-time residency, many people have not made the full commitment of this being a permanent home. There are many ways to be a part-time resident, but many choose to buy a house and then rent it out for the months they are not here. 

If you choose to purchase a home and rent it out part-time, you want to make sure your property is in good hands. After all, it takes a lot of faith and trust to lend your home out to total strangers. 

Then there is the question of who will care for the maintenance when you are away. Who will keep up with repairs, lawn care, and other situations that might arise? You probably don’t have the time or maybe the proper experience to be a landlord. 

That's where White Pelican Realty, The Villages® Community's premier property management company, comes into play. We handle everything from screening potential renters, home maintenance, even cleaning, and home watch. We specialize in seasonal and vacation rentals for homes, villas, and condos in The Villages® Community area in Florida. We make sure every home is up to par before during and after it is rented. 

If you are looking to rent your home, we will make sure it is in good hands. Contact White Pelican Realty today!
