When is the best time to rent?
The time from November through May is the busiest time of the year in The Villages. This is the what they call the high season of renting and during this time it is harder to find a rental. During this time the restaurants, country clubs, golf courses, and everything else are much more crowded than during this time period then in the summer and fall.
Many people visit the Villages with no plans of moving there until they see all that it has to offer. So if you plan to live in The Villages full-time in the future it is a good idea to rent first and to experience just what “crowded” means in the Villages. Crowed in the Villages is not really very crowded for many people from large cities. If you survey the residences of the Villages many do not think during the high season of January, February and March are that crowded.
Renting is the best way to check this out for yourself and the 1and1 Rental offers the best selection and prices for rents in the Villages. If you want the best idea of what the busy season is like, rent during the busy season.

Where should you rent?
The Villages is a very large place. This can make it that much harder to choose a rental. You might see a house you like that seems to fit all of your needs but if its far away from the places you’ll spend most of your time such as certain golf courses and the town squares. Remember, golf carts are used to travel from place to place.
One thing about location is that popularity of many locations is changing as the Village developer builds new communities and homes. Brownwood has become very popular and seems to be the choice of many who live in the Villages to spend time a night dance in the town square.
One thing you many want to think of is to rental a home which is centrally located. But if you preference of a golf courses you should rent near your preference. If your have a preference for a town square's then rent near that town square. We recommend that you rent the best home you can find.
