The Perceived Pros / Advantages of becoming a Florida resident

  • It’s warm and sunny all the time, after all they call it the sunshine state.

  • The beaches, I love going to the beach.

  • The golf courses. Florida has more of them

  • The theme parks. Disney, Universal Studios and Busch Gardens, wow.

  • It’s warm and sunny all the time.

  • No income tax. Less money to pay and one less tax return to file.

  • I’ve always had a great time while vacationing in Florida, must be a great place to live.

  • You can grow oranges and grapefruit in your own yard.

  • I won’t have to shovel snow anymore.

  • Real estate is so cheap there, I’ll be able to get a great house (after each bubble bursts).

  • Everything costs less in Florida.

  • Florida has palm trees. I love when I see the palm trees as I drive into Florida.

  • I can swim all year, I’m going to get a home with a pool!

  • Did I say it’s warm and sunny all the time yet?

The Cons / Disadvantages

  • Blank. “I really can’t think of a single negative. Moving TO Florida is what I have to do. This living in Florida pros and cons list sure made it clear to me. I’m calling the Realtor right now to sell the house and I’m going to start packing. I’m moving to Florida, wa hoo!”
