Hello. Let me introduce myself. I'm Neil Schuster (owner/developer of Lake Weir Living). I'm impressed by all the overnight commentary, as we our sponsorship placement just appeared yesterday.

Why not just buy in the The Villages then?
Because The Villages is not very friendly to RVs. There are no RV port homes, no RV garage homes, and no RV parking at all except for something like 72 hrs before and after a trip. There are numerous storage lots in and around The Villages.

We drove through Lake Weir Living. It is close enough to take advantage of shopping and entertainment opportunities associated with The Villages; but even though Lake Weir Living is only 8 miles away, it seems like it is kind of out in the boonies.

Hi Neil, thank you for your sponsorship and welcome to the forum. Your Lake Weir Community offers a unique opportunity ... a welcome change for those of us that have lived in Florida long enough to prefer homes in a community with no HOA.

Other reasons for Lake Weir Living (LWL):
  • HOA fees and restrictions at The Villages.
  • At LWL the houses aren't right next to each other like dominoes.
  • Though LWL has baseline floor plans on their website, every home to date has been customized by each owner. There are no "finite" options list.
  • You get to landscape the way you want.
Just a few things

The HOA in the villages is about $130 a month, you get to play for free on 35 golf courses, about 1500 activities a month, there are 100,000 residents I think.

But you are correct not RV freindly, I will check out the Lake weir complex nex time.

How many golf courses do they have and how many homes at this point in time built.

Well ... sort of. At The Villages, there is also a CDD Assessment of about $400 annually.
And the free golf is if you walk.

No idea about fees/charges/amenities at Lake Weir.

If you're lazy it cost $4 for a golf cart

I have friends that live there their taxes on a $250K house is $2,000, they don't have a CDD assessment.

They say their cost all in is about $700 a month, they use a pass for reduced rates on golf carts at about $1 a round.

Free live music at 3 town squares every nite of the year.

They are selling over 300 homes a months, so there must be something there attracting buyers. there are 200 salespersons there

But no one place is perfect for everybody, he said the articles by Ryan Eismann are laugh at by the residents

Thank you so much for your sponsorship, Maybe through your request and working with IRV2 tech dept. you can come up with a photo with a Motorcoach sitting in the driveway in front of the door for it, The big banner across the top of the page would be more appealing to look at on a RV forum with one in the photo.........Just my thoughts....

Just curious (since we now live in a HOA community and understand its pros and cons), if there are no HOA fees, who takes care of maintenance of the lawns, streets, common property? From my experience in the HOA, even folks who are financially able will not always maintain their property well unless they are forced to do so. Some folks are just plain lazy and others are not physically able to do maintenance.

I would think most folks who move into a place like this aren't interested in cutting their grass, etc. and if no HOA fees, is the individual homeowner on the hook to pay someone to do those things?

I'm going to go the other way. And this is just an opinion of course.

While I appreciate that every business must make a profit, or at the very least, break even, personally, I wish the banner at the top of the page was left alone and out of the coffers for advertising.

I'd rather see member submitted beautiful photos of scenery and places we've been to share with the other members. This could be done possibly as a slide show.

I personally already see a lot of advertising on my screen.

Again, just my humble opinion.
