Anything new on activities or problems at Solivita? We're closing on a townhouse the end of November.

I have not experienced anything downhill that was Avatars fault after I purchased a home from them. One reason so many homes in Solivita are for sale is due to investor buying, the other may be people wanting medical care closer then it is now, some even decide to move back to where they came from ( miss family) & of course the slow down in housing ( can't move here till you sell elsewhere). The prices have dropped big time & actually now is a very good time to buy a resale. The newer homes are different models so the selection is many. Solivita is really beautiful with tons to do but you know what they say - to each his own - so don't be swayed by what anyone says, what works for them may not work for you Come & take a look

i personally wouldnt live in poinciana, esp. since i dont know much spanish and i am turned off by the punks in the gangs... i wanna feel safe... i live in orlando (waterford lakes/stoneybrook/avalon park areas), and we have break-ins, cars stolen out of driveways, etc... so imo, poinciana, would not be anywhere on my list. imo.

Poinciana is getting worse and worse for crime. Solavita is nice inside, but you gotta go out sometimes

Default Solivita

We are considering buying there.

I'm not sure where you heard that something nearby was "scary". It is a gated community [that means there is a guard on duty 24/7] with a fence all the way around. And I just heard that 80% of the current owners live there year-round, so it's not as if it is a ghost town off-season.

Right now, it is about 20 minutes southwest of Kissimmee, and sort of out in the country. But in ten years time, it will be in the middle of suburbia and Greater Orlando.

They've built up a lot of shopping areas in the neighborhood lately.

We like it because they have a lot of clubs and activity in the village center which you can access via a golf cart.

But definitely shop around for a house at Solivita. New homes being offerred by the builder, Avatar, are starting at about $220,000. But you can currently find homes for re-sale starting at about $125,000. The market is down right now, so you can get the "lifestyle" somewhat inexpensiviely.

I'd head north to lake county, plenty of retirement communities with all of the amenties solavita has without the crime and traffic issues.

Hi, I love SolaVita. I lived there and bought a home. My husband developed a heart problem so I decided to move to TN. where my sister lives. I'm kicking myself for doing it. I have my two year old home in Knoxville on the market. Iwill head back to SolaVita as soon as I sell my home here.
It's such a happy place to live. If you haven't been to SolaVita, go there. You won't see any unhappy people. The activity are great. Poinciana is growing and new stores are popping up. The main pool I could stay in all day. You'll meet a lot of nice people there. Good Luck
