Florida just passed New York as one of the most popular places to live in the United States. This Florida boom can be attributed to the increase in population that the state has seen in the past decade. With over 3 million new residents moving to Florida, nearly every corner of the state has seen tremendous growth and success.
The residential housing market in the Sunshine State has surpassed $3.8 billion, much of which has been fueled by the many changes to Floridian life that have happened in recent years. First, the culture of work has improved, with remote work becoming more accessible as well as the overall availability of work in the state. The overall quality of life for Florida residents is also at an all time high. The climate in the state is temperate, and the cost of living is lower than other popular competing states like New York and California.
Perhaps the biggest change, however, is to the housing situation in Florida. The demand for new construction is peaking, and home prices are at an all-time low. With all of these benefits, it is no surprise that many movers are looking to make Florida their forever home. Luckily, there are many services and groups that are available to aid movers in their home-buying journey. No matter the need, hopeful homeowners are never alone in their search to settle in the Sunshine State.
