The Top Three Reasons Why You Should Spend Your Winters in Florida
If you're recently retired, you're probably considering what options lie ahead. Should you move to a new state but be farther from your family — or stay where you are?
One of the most popular choices for retired people is to rent out beachfront condos during the winter months, spending a few months of their year here. It allows people to get plenty of time in the sun during some of the year's harshest months. It's no wonder why 1,000 people move to Florida every day!
Still not convinced? Check out this list of three of the top factors that convince people to head south to Florida for the winter:
Florida is surprisingly affordable
Many people think they can't move to Florida upon retiring because of the cost. However, it's actually fairly affordable for seniors to spend a few months out of their year in Florida. The state has one of the lowest tax rates for residents based on income, property and other state taxes. You might actually save money by renting a beachfront condo for the winter months!
There's no shortage of natural beauty — or city life
Florida is a unique state thanks to its diverse natural landscapes, from the beaches to the Everglades. It also boasts thriving cities like Tampa, Miami and Orlando. Whether you're a city or country person, Florida has the best of both worlds — and the sight of the ocean framed by palm trees never gets old. You can also take part in a wide range of recreational activities to fit your lifestyle. It's not just about shuffleboard anymore — today's retirees play tennis, go swimming, go golfing and much more.
Because you're still feeling the chill from this winter
Let's face it — dealing with winter temperatures and all the snow and ice that come with them is never fun. Chances are, you're still dealing with winter even though it's March. Meanwhile, South Florida enjoys an average winter temperature of 68.5 degrees Fahrenheit. That alone is enough to convince any retiree that spending December through March in one of the Sunshine State's countless beachfront condos for rent.
