Dear Friend,

You’ve worked for this your entire life…

From the pennies you’ve pinched to the dollars deducted into your 401(k), employer matched contributions, your (if you’re lucky) pension you planned on, and the Social Security taxes that ate away at your take-home pay week after week for years…

Now is not the time to invest your retirement savings without the proper research.

The Villages is one of the most popular retirement communities in the world, an ideal Oasis where many Americans over 55 set their sights and move to upon retirement.

But among the attractions, the real estate demand, the exclusivity, activities, social atmosphere, there are facts and fictions that never get beyond the gated community walls.

Today, I’d like to help you with your research by introducing you to the most popular best-selling guide to living in The Villages…

Because the truth is…


The Villages May Be Your Ideal Oasis – But Only After Proper Research And Planning.

For information about local culture and politics, to even the smallest details about healthcare, taxes, cost of living…

If you’re looking to move to The Villages, or any other popular retirement community, you need to do your due diligence and research.

The problem is, that far too many people who moved to The Villages rely on real estate agents, land developers, and marketers more interested in getting extra money and giving you the valuable advice you need to move forward and make an informed decision.

Fortunately…


Now You Can “Avoid The Messy Mistakes The Unlucky Few Have Made And Retire Twice As Rich And Five Times Happier.”

My name is Ryan Erisman and in addition to being the author of this book, I’m also the editor of the most popular monthly newsletter about life, culture, and real estate in The Villages called “The Villages Monthly.”

Over the years, I’ve learned by talking with thousands of members of the community that there are many things that people wish they knew before they purchased or rented property there.

To help provide this information, I’ve compiled the latest research, insider insights, details, and real estate advice available in the Complete Guide To The Villages.

Since 2007, I’ve constantly updated this guide with the latest information, topics, trending real estate news, and more, providing one of the most comprehensive guides to The Villages available anywhere

Today, I’m proud to introduce to you the latest edition…
