What You Should Consider before Moving to Florida
As you may have seen in our previous reviews of Phoenix and Charlotte in the perfect move series, there are many pros and cons of living in either of the cities. A freelancer will, for example, search for a perfect place for them to move where they will enjoy a low cost of living and inexpensive housing since they don’t have a family to take care of, neither do they have a job that may require them to desire to grow in their career. In this article, we shall check out the state of Florida, and you’re going to discover more on whether Florida may be a perfect move for you.
I have visited two places in Florida in the last six years and the first place I made a trip to Tallahassee and recently, I went for to St. Petersburg. In Florida, I used Uber rides, and the drivers provided me with great insights about the good and bad parts of the life in Florida. It came to my realization that most people Florida were from up north and only moved to Florida. It’s only one person who I met on my trip to St. Petersburg who told me that it is in Florida that they were born and raised. I was concerned about how the influx of people into Florida affected the cost of housing, and on my work trip, I found people discussing their housing and how much they were paying. At the moment, the house which they live cost me about $700 a month and if I lived in an equivalent of this house in St. Petersburg Florida, it would cost double. Since the prices were not this high about ten or five years ago it means that the influx of the people who moved to Florida is responsible for the price hikes in housing.
In Florida unlike in Virginia where I was born and raised, the summers are usually very hot, and you will also experience high humidity and the coldness of the winter season will also go down up to about 50 degrees on some days. I would therefore not find Florida to be a place where I would prefer to live because there are no mountains which I love even though you will find a subtropical climate and beaches which the Northerners love. Another thing I realized about Florida is that there are many gators and snakes and this is another reason why I would not live in Florida because I do not want to find myself in a situation with a gator or python on my driveway. Florida, however, has beautiful water, and if you love boating or swimming, then you should call Florida your home though I still wouldn’t make it my home. In conclusion, the cost of living in Florida was high for me, the weather was unbearable, and the beautiful water would still not make me move at the moment.
