The Villages NJ Reviews (5)

Average Rating for this Community

As a two-year resident at The Villages, I’d be remiss to not mention how very pleased we are with the improvements being made: New roofs are currently being installed throughout the community, and we look forward to having driveways addressed in the foreseeable future! These improvements are sure to further initiate pride in home ownership, enhancing our neighborhood’s beauty AND home values! Also, the office prioritizes keeping residents advised via phone and/or email of all pertinent weather, safety and general notifications. We are so pleased with our decision to buy in The Villages!!


I am living in the Villages for almost 11 years, the board works very hard to do things to make the Villages a great place to live. If you need your gutters fixed, windows painted, driveways paved, roofs taken care of etc. they do it. Other developments you have to do it yourself. These are some of things our maintenance fee takes care of. The fee go up a very small amount compare to what they do. There are always people that complain and should live in Greenbriar or the Rivia where it is prettier and you have complete control of your house. You can fix it any time you want to pay for it.


The HOA at the villages is horrible, It took us almost 2 years to get them to sod our lawn in just one small area. More excuses and more than I can count of the number of requests, both written and verbal. The fees go up every year. And they do not make the increase change for you, they make you figure out how to do it yourself.No other association operates this way. The dues are way to high for what you pay for compared to other more expensive communities.


It sounds like one of the reviews was written by a realtor. Everything in this commuity has deteriorated in the last 9 years that we've been here. There have been about 4-5 different management companies and boards. Hopefully the new mgnt and bd will get things running better than before and will bring some improvements and adherence of guidelines to this community.


Living here for almost 5 years and have noticed that the entire community seems to be heading in the wrong direction it is becoming badly run down thru out. Very sad especially the entire club house area including the pool area and the gym room is filthy. What is going on !!!!!
