I continue to track all the latest news and updates as it relates to coronavirus in The Villages.

You can read this week’s coronavirus updates here.

This week, I really enjoyed this interview that Jerry and Linda from The Villages Newcomers did with Chad and Jennifer from Kentucky.

They bought a house as an investment (they’ll rent it out when they’re not here) in the Spanish Springs area, and they actually bought it sight unseen!

There are some valuable nuggets in this video for anyone considering buying in The Villages for investment or otherwise.

In that video you’ll hear a little bit about how crazy The Villages real estate market is right now.

In fact, for the first time I can remember, the number of MLS listings (those are resales listed with outside Realtors) is actually higher than the number of VLS listings (those are resales listed through the developers resale arm).

Inventory is incredibly low too.

According to the Realtor I send all of my readers to, the total number of homes for sale between the two listing systems today is 261, compared to 796 on this date in 2020 and 559 in 2019.
