    The Groves is a nice place to live. The HOA and CDD do a good job keeping things well maintained. The fees are reasonable. It is safe and the residents are friendly. There are many activities. You can become as involved as you like. It doesn't really matter if you are a joiner or a loner here.

    I like my place at The Groves. It's a friendly neighborhood and there are no unnecessary extra fees to worry about. Lots of golf course communities nickel and dime you but not here. Prices are reasonable, amenities are plentiful and the golf is good.

Can you spot the $207,744 difference between these identical homes?
