Angela Masson runs a growing YouTube Channel that “focuses on exploring fashion over 50”. She just bought a winter home in The Villages and she shared a video of it and the surrounding area on her channel.
In a very short amount of time, her video has racked up more than 120,000 views.
I can tell you from experience, very few videos on the topic of “Florida retirement” ever reach this level of popularity, so there's definitely something here worth watching.
Check it out:
Located about an hour north of Orlando, The Villages is the most popular retirement community in the country. In fact, they sold an astounding 4,004 new homes in 2021.
Now home to more than 130,000 residents, people are attracted to The Villages because of its many golf courses, activities, amenities, and the convenience of having almost everything be golf cart accessible.
Home prices start in the $200k's, though the average price of both resales and new homes is in the $300k's.
If you are a longtime reader here you probably know I wrote a book about The Villages, Inside the Bubble: Ultimate Guide to the World's Largest Retirement Community.
I also publish a weekly email newsletter about the goings on there. You can sign up for that (for free) right here:
