I don't think so, but that's different than this.
Anyway, my main point was my last one, that you can sell and buy many times over in 40 years, why does this home need to be something usable for retirement
Some are into the whole buying/selling buying/selling, while others are more 1 & done with it.

Additionally. Looks to me like its a clustered development with no possibility of adding a privet pool in the backyard, which makes it unpractical for your vacation needs in the summer. CMIIW

There are 40 ft lots and 50 ft lots, the 50 they say might be able to have pools.
The lots are deep 120.
I actually sent an email the builder inquiring about pool. Waiting to hear from them.

Is taking out a mortgage a lack of faith ? How about long-term investments ?
How about washing dishes or laundry?

How about @Dan booking a flight on AA?

I would not wash 30 years worth of dishes. But that’s just me.

You need clean clothes for mashiach.

R' Jo, you do understand asking about purchasing a home in tampa as an investment property is taking this thread off topic though....

Is taking out a mortgage a lack of faith ?

If anything, buying in cash is a lack of faith. A loan that won't have to be repaid is something any faithful person would jump at.

I don't know if this will be helpful, but I was just in Tampa for the Super Bowl, where I managed to get a free ticket for my wife who's a doctor.

I'm not chassidish and didn't visit the new community, but after having visited many small Jewish communities (think Fargo, Green Bay, Jackson Hole), I found Tampa's Jewish scene to be far more OOT than I expected. There was a daily minyan, but it never started on time as it usually took 15+ minutes until they got a minyan together. The shul is called Young Israel, but it's run by Chabad (as is the rest of the town). People davened inside, outside, in the parking lot, and one local asked me if I'd ever davened "nusach cholent" before. The chinuch options there leave a LOT to be desired.

There was one kosher place (David's) I was told was okay, but it's basically an Israeli guy who lives in one of the Chabad houses downtown and has a kitchen there and makes food to order for pickup/delivery if you give him 1-2 hours advance notice. We tried going to the closest kosher grocery (Jo-El in St. Petersburg), only to find out that they closed on a Sunday (Super Bowl Sunday!) at 1 PM.

Tampa itself was lovely and we had an amazing time (other than the outcome of the game). And being so close to Orlando (<1.5 hours) is a big plus. But from a Jewish perspective, they're really starting from scratch, and unless they succeed in getting a critical mass and their own mosdos, there's virtually nothing else there.

These Chassidic communities that pop up presumably establish their own infrastructure (shuls, schools, and over time as they grow supermarkets and mikvahs etc). I don't think this community will be affected at all by the nusach cholent, or the lack of chinuch options in the legacy Tampa community.

I really don't get this cheshbon - who knows what will be in 40 years from now. Hopefully mashiach tzidkeinu will be here by then and you won't think of vacationing in FL. You can easily buy and sell many times over in the course of 40 years
Sorry for not understanding. Why won't I be vacationing in Florida after moshiach comes?
Where did I put my mask 🙃

But a non existent kosher scene is a major drawback for potential pioneers.
