In a national Gallup Poll done in 2013, only 11% of Floridians said Florida was the best state to live in. Yet from my experience of selling homes for more than a decade to people moving in and out of Florida, I can tell you that nearly 100% of people moving to Florida think it’s the best state to live in. Why is there such a gap between what people think before they move to Florida, and after they’ve live in the state a while? Because the reality of living in Florida is often far different than what people perceive it will be like. There are two ways to learn about all of the negatives of living in Florida. Before you’ve spent the time money and effort to move there, or after.

In the Florida Move Guide you’ll learn the actual reasons people who made “permanent” relocation’s to Florida gave me, for wanting to sell and move out of Florida. You’ll also learn what you can do to improve your odds of a successful long term relocation to the Sunshine State.

A popular saying by Florida promoters is that over a 1000 people a day move there. What you won’t hear them say is that over a 1000 people a day pack up and move out of the Sunshine State every day too. That’s supposed to be a secret.
The author of this book has sold hundreds of homes for people that wanted to move out of the state. He noticed that most sellers had very similar complaints about living there and the reasons why they had to get out. Despite visiting Florida many times before they moved there, most of the negatives of living in the state did not reveal themselves until after they spent a fortune to move there. They also explained how disruptive and expensive moving there and moving out was, but they disliked Florida so much they just had to do it.
Of course this doesn’t happen to everyone. There are many that love it and stay long term. That is covered in the book too because many of them have the same things in common that you should also know about.
