If you’re considering a property in Florida as your next home, you probably have lots of questions. This is especially true if you’ve only visited the state once or twice. In reality, there are many myths that people share about our state, but as your source for everything in the area, I’m always here to answer your questions when it comes to real estate. So, let’s dive in!
How worried should I be about alligators and sharks?
In truth, when you own a home in Florida, wildlife is not a major concern. Sure, you need to know a few rules, but if you’ve seen alligators in pools… well, this is incredibly rare. Even shark attacks are something that is statistically very unlikely to happen. Just like anywhere else in the country, you want to be mindful of wildlife, especially if you’re outdoors in their native habitat.
How bad is the heat and humidity during the summer?
As a homeowner in Florida, I can assure you that the summer is not nearly as bad as some people make it out to be. Sure, it’s plenty warm. But that’s a benefit! Throughout the year, you have tons of sunny days and warm water to enjoy at our world-class beaches. And throughout the United States, summers are warm; that’s a fact. While the humidity can be a bit higher, the reality is that our summers can be very enjoyable.
Does everyone have a favorite beach?
Yes! When you own a home in Florida, you’ll find that just about everyone has their favorite beach. In fact, locals can be very opinionated about which their favorite is and why they love that one in particular. We have countless beaches for you to enjoy, and you’ll get to know many of them when you live here, and find your own favorite.
Can you really find pristine, secluded outdoors?
Hand-in-hand with our amazing beaches comes the outdoors. From boating to hiking, we have so many options that it’s hard to imagine. And with them comes many pristine areas that are completely secluded. What this means is that you can find a spot to fish or camp, and it can be totally yours without anyone else around. How many other places can you say that about your own backyard?
Are properties as affordable as I keep hearing?
Absolutely! One of the biggest questions I get when it comes to owning a home in Florida involves the cost of homes. Even as you hear about the incredible value our properties have been gaining, there’s another side to that story. When you compare our areas to the rest of the country, we’re very affordable, and it’s not hard to find a property well below average.
