Selling your Long Island home and considering a move to Florida?
Before you hop on a plane to look at some homes there, you have homework to do first. Maybe you know exactly where you want to move – or maybe you don’t have a clue. You may have friends or neighbors who have moved there – and it sounds great! But is it for you? The choices are vast. Prices are all over the place. How do you know what and where is the community that best suits you?
Your first step when anticipating a move is to arrange for someone to give you an overview of an area. Working with a real estate professional that specializes in an area will help you make a wise decision. Their expertise, experience and personal knowledge of an area will allow you to find the community and area which best suits your needs and requirements.
Besides real estate specialists from every area, Cheryl has direct access to numerous developments. Some provide a complimentary stay giving you the opportunity to get a taste and feel for the development before buying into it. If you’ve decided on an area, but not sure if a particular development is right for you, this may be a good option.
You’re not precluded from choosing all options. This is a major decision – a life-style decision. Please contact Cheryl at Cheryl@LIagent.com or 631-223-8549 to discuss your options and arrange an appointment (or appointments) with Realtors who are specialists in the areas you want to visit.
Before you start your search, you may need to know what your current Long Island home is worth. Whether you need to sell your home to buy a new one – or need the proceeds to add to your retirement funds, knowing the value of your home in today’s market will help you determine how much to spend on a new home. Cheryl Grossman has been selling homes on Long Island for 25 plus years. Contact Cheryl to arrange for a Free Home Market Value Report to learn how much your home is worth. We can discuss your needs and requirements for a home in Florida and Cheryl will arrange for a consultation with a Real Estate Specialist in the area(s) you choose. All complimentary – and with no obligation, of course.
Palm Beach County
If you live on Long Island you probably know someone (or many) who have chosen to move to the Palm Beach County area of Florida! It’s a hot-spot for many retirees – from all over the country – but especially the Northeast. The weather is a draw for many people – average 74 degrees in the winter, 90 degrees in the summer. The sun-filled days are perfect for active adults. There’s a lot to choose from – small, intimate neighborhoods to sprawling luxury developments with all the resort-style amenities one could wish for.There are countless Active Adult Communities in Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, Boca Raton, Lake Worth, Wellington and West Palm Beach including such popular ones as:
and many more to choose from – to suit every lifestyle and price range
Greater Orlando Area
There are many reasons why people choose to live in Central Florida – chief among them: cost, communities and climate. The prices of above 55 homes in the area can be lower than those on the coasts. Some real bargains can be found. You can find almost any type of above-55 community in the area – from bare bones to exclusive active adult enclaves, gated with all amenities. The climate is wonderful – not as warm as southern Florida but warmer than northern FL or the Carolinas. And your grandchildren will love that you’re so close to all the attractions at Disney World or Universal Studios!
Some of the popular Active Adult Communities near Orlando include:
Celebration (all ages)
Tampa, St. Pete Area
Ft. Myers, Naples Area
The well-known and beautiful beaches of Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Sarasota, and Sanibel Island offer great fishing, crystal sands, blue water and golden sunshine! Nearby counties offer a world of outdoor activities, cultural venues and professional sporting events. Many of the communities provide a host of country club amenities – including golf course, tennis center, restaurant and multiple clubhouse facilities with fitness and spa center. All this plus year-around ongoing social events provide unlimited fun under the sun. Our family spent many wonderful Winter vacations at Sanibel Island. I really love the West Coast of Florida.
Whether you’re looking for housing in the cities or in one of the beautiful large developments Cheryl can help you find the right specialist to help you find your dream place in the sun.
