I've known about Florida Leisure Communities for a number of years, and they build one of the finest homes anywhere at one of the best values anywhere. They put more features into their homes, and they are willing to work with you to customize your home... something that most Florida builders refuse to do.
Legacy is an older established community but it is very affordable and well located close to shopping. You should give it careful consideration if you're looking for a great home for retirement.
