    If you are looking to buy a new house, relocate, move out of state or even retire you should consider Florida. The Sunshine state has something to offer everyone. There is always great shopping and dining options to meet anyone’s taste and style. Young adults and singles can enjoy the nightlife with highly rated clubs. Families and kids have countless theme parks, museums, outdoor adventures and entertainment options year-round. And the seniors, they have the most to gain. To start, active adult and retirement communities are popping up everywhere. These communities are great if you are an empty nester or if you are looking to retire but not ready to slow down just yet. The weather is phenomenal, during the summer temperature highs average 81 degrees with occasional showers help keeping it cool and winters average 60 degrees. This is desirable for the aging as arthritis and regulating body temperature become a concern. Specialized health care and accessible living is more common since the population is heavy with seniors. An added bonus is that there is no income tax, inheritance tax or estate tax.  

    No matter what stage of life you are in, Florida is a great place to consider calling home.
