Snowbird Season is around the corner...

Snowbird Season is around the corner!





This weekend we are celebrating Goodbye Summer in Margate, Florida with a family fun event, but this also means that snowbird season will be here shortly.

What is a "snowbird"? It is a person, generally retired, that leaves a colder climate in the northern (colder) part of the United States or Canada and migrates for warmer sections of the US, such as Florida, for roughly six months out of the year. 

This migration generally takes place between October/November and April/May, depending on when winter is over in the north and when the south starts to heat up again. 

We have been very fortunate to help many snowbirds find their second home here in Broward County. Not only do we have our all ages communites, we have a large selection of 55+ communites that either have condos or homes to chose from. 

I know it is still pretty warm in the northern states, but pretty soon a cold wind will start to blow making you wish for warmer days! So, remember we have year round sunshine and warm breezes and The Johnson Team is here to help you buy your second home/condo!!

Good morning Kim,

I'm sure the migration will begin in earnest in the next 30 days! You are the perfect choice to call. Your expertise will be a plus for them!

Good morning, Kim Johnson and that also means we need to order wood pellets and think about shoveling walkways.... I'm sure your winter will be a busy one....I heard it's predicted to be another severe winter in New England....

Kim- the good thing is that even though Fall means the return of the Snow bird, it's a reminder that why they're coming here is why we moved here in the first place- no cold weather.

Yep, they will be here soon.  Great for business, but not so good for traffic and lines at the grocery store!
