Looking for warm weather, Disneyworld, stunning beaches, and a low cost-of-living all in one place? You don't have to look any further than the Sunshine State- otherwise known as one of the best real estate secrets in the United States.

Whether you're making a cross-country move or relocating for work, discover why Florida may be the answer for your housing needs.

Outdoor Vibes

Whether you're into surfing, jet-skiing, or professional tanning, Florida is the place to catch some sun- and catch some waves. 

But the fun doesn't just stop on the coast. With over 100 state parks, 117 historic sites, three national parks, and 20 national wildlife refuges, there is no shortage of places worth trekking and exploring.

With Florida residents enjoying over 200+ sunny days each year, you'll never fall short of your Vitamin D requirements. Oh, and it doesn't get much colder than 60 degrees Fahrenheit- heavy winter clothes aren't needed! 

Serious Entertainment Options

Not a huge fan of the famous mouse? No worries. Even though Disney World attracts millions of annual visitors, it isn't the only option for fun and recreation.

From Universal Studies to Busch Gardens to the Kennedy Space Center, there are plenty of remarkable destinations that can offer something for everyone- all within a fast day's drive. 

And that's not even getting all the professional sports craze happening for sports fanatics. From the Miami Heat to the Florida Panthers to the Miami Dolphins to the infamous Daytona 500, sporting events are happening on a regular basis.

Like to hit the putting green? Florida has more golf courses than any other state in America.

Affordability

Florida residents enjoy reduced sales tax rates and low property taxes rate. Best of all? There currently isn't any state income tax. If you're looking to buy a home, Florida's real estate market offers some of the hottest options in the country.

Furthermore, with a reliable and robust economy, the employment sector remains healthy within the state. Trades in tourism, international trade, life and marine sciences, and recreation and hospitality continue to remain popular career options- with lucrative opportunities for growth.

The marriage of a modest cost-of-living with low unemployment rates makes for the perfect state for pretty much anyone.

World-Class Cuisine

Whether you're an avid foodie or merely a patron who enjoys an excellent dinner here and there, Florida has you covered with menu options from around the world. Florida cultural influences include cuisine derived from Cuba, Spain, Asia, the Carribean, and the Bahamas.

That translates into an impressive abundance of fresh seafood, tropical and tasty fruits, and, yes, the infamous Cuban sandwich!

Furthermore, with a continued emphasis on microbrewing, Florida has become of the latest hubs offering world-class beer. And, hey, what's better than a day on the beach with a sandwich and your favorite craft beer?
