Thinking about moving to Florida?
Maybe you dream of a waterfront property in Cape Coral or a new family home in tranquil Winter Springs.
Whatever you’ve got your heart set on, Florida’s hot real estate market offers the best investment opportunity.
Here are five of the many reasons why a move to Florida is a great idea.
1. It’s Always Shorts Weather
Let’s face it, the whole country is jealous of Florida’s weather. While northerners shovel snow, average temperatures in Florida rarely drop below 60 degrees.
So, if you’re planning a move to Florida, pack plenty of shorts and t-shirts as you’ll be wearing them 365 days a year.
You may have to put up with the occasional tropical storm, but rainfalls usually only last a couple of hours before the sun starts shining again.
2. A Hot Real Estate Market
If there’s one thing hotter than that Florida sun right now, it’s the Sunshine State’s real estate market.
So hot in fact that no less than five areas in Florida made the top ten list of 2017’s hottest real estate markets, including the top three!
The list is based on affordability, employment opportunities, the number of people moving to the area, and overall economic stability.
According to the findings, if you’re planning to move to Florida, Jacksonville, Cape Coral-Fort Myers, and Daytona Beach are the best places for you to invest in a new property.
3. Enjoy a Mix of Cultures
A wide range of influences has shaped Florida’s distinct cultural mix.
As a Southern state, southern culture and cuisine are still prominent in parts of rural Central Florida and the panhandle.
Away from tourist spots, you’ll find quiet beach towns and suburban areas. Southwest Florida is known for its arts, museums, and theaters, while also being a popular retirement area for senior citizens.
However, the thriving city of Miami stands in stark contrast to its more tranquil neighbors. With Spanish spoken as often as English, Miami’s culture is strongly influenced by its Cuban and Latino populations.
In addition to the different cultures and languages, you can enjoy a mix of cuisines. Where else can you taste the best stone crabs, try a Cuban sandwich, or tuck into a slice of Key Lime Pie?
4. It’s Naturally Diverse
For nature-lovers, Florida’s landscapes and wildlife are even more diverse than the mix of cultures and cuisines.
The Everglades are the only place in the world with both crocodiles and alligators. And Florida is also home to 1000 fresh water springs where you can swim and explore underwater caves.
If you’re a keen birdwatcher, then the Florida Birding Trail will keep you busy with over 500 sites to see birds arriving south for the winter.
And, if you just want to lay back and enjoy the sea breeze, then Florida has two distinct coastlines with plenty of beaches to choose from.
5. Live Where Others Vacation
From the weather to the beaches to the many theme parks, Florida attracts tourists from all over the world.
But why stop at a two week vacation?
Thanks to the mild climate and plentiful activities, you can enjoy everything the state has to offer all year round, and make your free time count.
A move to Florida is a move toward reclaiming evenings and weekends for your hobbies and interests. And, come vacation time you won’t have to drive half way across the country to find paradise!
